Last Thursday, March 19, 2020, we here at //SEIBERT/MEDIA were planning on holding our Atlassian Enterprise Club Day an in-person event in Wiesbaden, but the unexpected coronavirus pandemic has thrown us a curveball that we needed to adjust to. Rather than canceling the event, we converted it to a remote event. We live-streamed the event via our YouTube channel. After our live AEC show, several participants asked us about the technology that we used. We wanted to give everyone a more detailed look behind the scenes here in this article.
Our aim was to get involved in the general conversation about sustainability, to signal our commitment to sustainability so that it’s recognized internally, and to establish regional contacts in order to learn and exchange ideas together. We here in the organizational team were very happy to receive the positive feedback and animated discussions that came from the event. Our plan is to hold two more Meetups this year.
If you work in a digital agency, communication is your bread and butter so hang up your phones and stop writing those emails. Streamline your communication processes with Google G Suite so you can get back to doing what you do best.
No longer is it a special case for companies and their teams to find themselves in a meeting with participants who aren’t sitting (or standing) in the room with them. It’s critical for clients and stakeholders to be involved in communicating and coordinating with external partners. Teams are often distributed or they have individual team members who work remotely. Since I’m a remote employee who is a part of a local Scrum team at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, I have a lot of experience in this area which I’d like to share with you in this article.
Microblogging for Confluence is an add-on that extends Confluence to include a modern social media and communication feature with timeline, subscribable topics, likes, mentions, and other features that each employee knows from their private use of Facebook, Twitter & Co. Users and teams use Confluence microblogs to exchange ideas, to get quick feedback from colleagues, or to agree on projects in an uncomplicated way.
It’s no secret that I hate WhatsApp, and love Telegram as an instant messenger. Because I keep getting asked “Why?”, I’ll try to explain some of my reasons in this post.
For years, email was the primary means of digital communication within companies. About 15 years ago, more companies started using browser-based intranets. In recent years, though, messenger and chat have since taken the lead in the workplace.
There are many different ways people communicate and develop content in an organisation. More traditional communication channels are meetings, telephone calls, and email. The development of intranet software, chat tools, and blogs has improved and streamlined communication in a company. All three tools cut down on the flood of email, allowing better collaboration and quicker resolutions of decisions and questions.
When I spoke to Mike Cannon-Brooks, the co-founder of Atlassian, during AtlasCamp 2015 in Prague, I was a bit surprised that he wasn’t too afraid of classic B2C messengers as competitors for Atlassian HipChat. I am pretty convinced that Slack as HipChat’s main competitor right now is way overhyped. The solution may have grown faster than HipChat in the past. I still think that Atlassian is in it for the long haul and with their existing strong presence in the enterprise they are in a very good position to win the battle.
Group chat is a team focused application. We see our enterprise customers struggle and even be completely ignorant to its value and features. The common route for group chat to spread in an organization is still organically bottom up. That is often uncontrolled and chaotic.
