New to Confluence? Not sure how to structure your contents? In this short video tutorial, Martin Seibert explains how to structure content in Confluence by using spaces:
JIRA helps you collaborate more efficiently with your co-workers and spend less time in following up tasks. This user friendly tool, among many other helpful features, lets you enter descriptions of tasks that need to be done, assign them to other employees and set deadlines. It allows you to create issues (tasks) for helpdesk tickets, project tasks, change requests or software bugs.
Working with Confluence, you notice how fast the content of your wiki is constantly expanding. Eventually some content needs to be updated due to new information or developments. The question that might arise: Shall I create a new page with new content or rather update the existing page? In this video, Martin Seibert from //SEIBERT/MEDIA explains the advantages of updating a page rather than creating a new one. This approach might involve a bit of work and time but reduces redundancies and helps communicating updates to the existing followers of the old content.
Being introduced to JIRA can be intimidating and overwhelming. JIRA is a very powerful and complex task management and bug tracking system.

In this video podcast, Martin Seibert and Alex Boerger discuss Trello and Basecamp as JIRA alternatives in the enterprise. In the beginning, they give a brief introduction and overview of the functionality and best practice of each product. The discussion shows that each product has its own market and the usage depends on your use case. If you are a small team of up to 5 people, Basecamp and Trello might be a good choice. But for bigger companies, with different and more complex projects, JIRA is the only way to make you happy.
