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:

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.

//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.

Last year, Facebook started offering a business solution called, Workplace by Facebook. It’s a variation of the social network of the same name, but for use in the office. Companies can easily register, calculate costs, and quickly get up and running.

Last year, Facebook started offering a solution for organizations called, Facebook for Work. It then officially started development in October 2016, changing its name to Workplace by Facebook.

It’s impossible to reproduce such an abundance of news and information from an Atlassian summit in a compact blog post (and immediately after the end of the keynote). In this post, we want to focus on the most important news regarding the Atlassian products.
