With Confluence Data Center, Atlassian is addressing the increasing technical requirements that large companies are placing on their internal software systems. This includes straightforward and fast scalability, high availability and performance even under heavy use and the reduction of unforeseen and planned downtime. In recent weeks, our product teams have worked intensively to make our own products meet these requirements: The key components of our Confluence-based social intranet suite Linchpin are now Data Center compatible!
This is a guest post from Levente Szabo. Growth introduces new kind of inevitable challenges in every business. As an organization grows, the meaning of “business as usual” evolves. Processes and methods change, disrupting everyday life for teams across departments. But scaling up to a software solution like Atlassian Data Center is only half of the battle. Here’s what else you need to consider.
With Microblogging for Confluence, you can extend your company’s wiki and collaboration system with a feature set that offers modern, fast, straightforward social media functionality within Confluence – with timelines, comments and likes, topics to subscribe to, unread post indicators, and more. Microblogs let teams rapidly exchange, share and discuss ideas, they are great for internal announcements – the applications of microblogging are diverse.

Earlier this year, John Wetenhall, Head of Strategy & Operations Manager visited us here in Wiesbaden, immediately after Atlassian Summit Europe ended. I took this opportunity to sit down with John for a few video interviews. In our first interview, we chatted about Summit, and in this second session, we focused on collaboration using Confluence and how to customize it.

Magenta advertising banners or flyers, a capital “T” and four dots – who didn’t think about a certain large, German telecommunications company? This example shows just how important corporate design is. You’ll find out why corporate design plays an important role in your Confluence system and how the Linchpin Theme Plugin supports the implementation of your specific corporate design in Confluence in this blog post.
Email continues to be the main medium for digital communication in many companies, and at the same time is one of the biggest time wasters and productivity killers. Email is fast, convenient, and normal – and is often abused to a greater degree than any other digital communications technology.
One of the biggest problems is that email communication is frequently ‘unofficial’, as the contents are not centrally documented, transparent, and available to the entire organization. This does not mean that I want to condemn email as a whole – there are good and bad emails.
You don’t talk about money – at least not in concrete terms, and never before the start of a project. This seems to be the motto for many providers of intranet solutions. It is certainly true for one particularly large one. But that’s not what you will get with a Linchpin social intranet solution: We are fully transparent about all of the costs and services involved in the entire project.
