For more than a year now, I have been working for //SEIBERT/MEDIA from home at a distance of about 250km. Can agile software development work like this? Can Scrum processes be maintained, despite the distance? Will I fall out of sync with the team? Right now, I can say yes, it does work!
Our Confluence-based intranet suite Linchpin is ideal for companies that are distributed over several, or even a very large number of sites. …
//SEIBERT/MEDIA and SBK have collaborated on a social intranet project using our Linchpin platform. What started with user-story workshops to tailor the project requirements to suit the needs of the users, was iteratively implemented, and is now in use by the employees of SKB: The new employee portal has been live for several months now!
Have you ever received a Christmas present that you didn’t wish for? Of course you have. Everyone has!

//SEIBERT/MEDIA is now forwarding calls received on 0611-20570-0 to a call center. With the customer, the call center fills out a form, which is then processed internally within minutes by email and live chat. We hope to provide you with more competent, faster and more reliable support.

This blog post wants to encourage you to reduce “off-the-record business communication”. It’s about your bottom line.
The beginning of the year is often a time when companies and teams plan their product development for the coming months. Project, product, and development managers gather to assess meetings, distribute resources, and commit to roadmaps. To facilitate this, Atlassian developed Portfolio for JIRA, which is now in version 2.2. The new release gives teams the ability to compare initial and current project timelines, select the best roadmap scenario, and determine their velocity.
//SEIBERT/MEDIA will be at Atlassian Summit Europe 2017 with three products: draw.io, the diagramming solution for Confluence (this year’s Summit’s main sponsor), our Codeyard tool stack for software developers and, of course, Linchpin, our Confluence-based social intranet. We are presenting Linchpin in collaboration with our colleagues and partners from DEISER at booth G6 in the Expo Hall.
The aim of a Hackathon is to put yourself under time pressure, and intensively work for this short period of time to develop and deliver a product, or complete a small project. With the encouragement of our developers, it has become an integral part of our agile organization.
