In JIRA, companies manage their projects, epics, user stories and detailed tasks. Requirements are translated into concrete tickets that can be assigned and processed. Dependencies are shown here. Project progress is measured and evaluated with JIRA.
Confluence has also had tasks and tasks lists for several years. On this topic, someone contacted us a while ago on Twitter:
I wonder when you should use Confluence’s task lists instead of JIRA?
The //SEIBERT/MEDIA Custom User Profile add-on allows users to expand their user profiles in Confluence both to provide new fields and structure the information. Our development team has released Custom User Profile version 2.0, with a completely revised profile view.
After the free version of the Linchpin Theme Plugin came out on the Atlassian Marketplace a few weeks ago, our development team also released an enterprise edition. The Linchpin Theme Plugin allows you to customize Confluence without having to do any programming. You can tailor it specifically to your organization’s design, create a header and logo, custom footer and navigation menu, personalized buttons and other elements. What used to be a project in and of itself can now be done with considerably less effort. You can even switch between different themes as needed.
All of the standard plugin features are also included in the Enterprise add-on—and then then some.
It’s on! The first ever Add-on Discovery Day 2017 will happen on September 11th in San Jose. It’s the day before Atlassian Summit. If you are in San Jose on September 11th, please be quick to register. I am pretty sure, that this is the best option to spend the day. And we’ll be finished when the evening party for Atlassian partners starts. Read more about the event:

IntraNET.Reloaded Berlin 2017 is over. Our empulse colleagues had a few exciting days at the event with diverse discussions, talks and presentations. Almost 400 attendees discussed the “webification of enterprise communication” and examined the topic in detail.

It’s useful to always extend the 12-month support period for your Atlassian software – you receive regular updates with bug fixes, new features, improvements, and security patches. But when should you extend, and when should you upgrade? Look a little into the future, if your user numbers are increasing it may make more sense to upgrade!
//SEIBERT/MEDIA’s Atlassian Enterprise Club (AEC) had its most recent customer meeting on 28 March. It was a full house at our Wiesbaden office, with many important customers, great discussions, interesting lectures, and seamless organization, all of which created a successful experience with plenty of positive feedback.
This year, we were able to host a notable guest from Sydney, Australia at our AEC meeting, Keshav Puttaswamy, Head of Product (Server) at Atlassian. In his presentation, Atlassian for Enterprises, he gives a comprehensive overview about what’s been done with Atlassian’s server products and looks ahead towards further development.
Confluence and JIRA are definitely great products in their own right. However, there are several great reasons to use them together. Software development teams already using JIRA will benefit from using Confluence as well.
