What happens in Vegas… will change the world
April 11, 2019
The latest product updates and exciting news shared by our founders at Atlassian Summit in Las Vegas.
Today we mark an important milestone a decade in the making: our biggest Summit ever, here in Las Vegas. Scott and I are thrilled to spend this week with more than 4,000 customers, partners, and friends as we share our vision for Atlassian’s future, and the steps we’ve taken towards unleashing the potential of every team throughout the world.
We’re so excited to host our Summit in Las Vegas, a city where anything is possible. Where you can ride a roller coaster high above a busy street, dine underwater with a mermaid, and see the Beatles brought back together (virtually) all in one night. And where two Aussie founders can celebrate a year of milestones for a company they started 17 years ago with no more than a credit card and a belief that with great teamwork, anything is possible.
No matter how much Atlassian has changed over the years — in growing our company, our product family, our customer base — we’ve never wavered from that underlying belief.
We’re excited to help you see what’s possible for your team with Atlassian, and are unveiling new features and updates to help you get the most value out of our products and services. This includes new incident management capabilities and integrations across the Atlassian platform, new ways to create and share content with your team, and significant performance and infrastructure enhancements to our self-managed enterprise offering.
Follow along with the event on our livestream, and read more about our exciting news below.
Respond to incidents faster than ever with new features and integrations in Opsgenie
Following our acquisition of Opsgenie last September, the team has been hard at work developing advanced incident management capabilities that allow Dev and Ops teams to rapidly respond to, resolve, and learn from every incident. As the number and impact of IT incidents continue to grow, we’re bringing new features to help organizations operate always-on services for their customers.
Create clean and engaging content in Confluence with new capabilities
More and more cross-functional teams at companies like Pepsi, Pfizer, and Adobe are turning to Confluence as the standard for content collaboration. In fact, around one in four Confluence Cloud customers use it throughout their entire company, according to a recent customer survey. At Atlassian Summit, we’re announcing 15+ new features to Confluence Cloud that totally reimagine its content creation experience.
Scale agile with AgileCraft — now called Jira Align
We’re excited to announce that AgileCraft is now Jira Align! This new name and logo reflects our vision of extending agile to the enterprise and better connecting teams, strategy, and outcomes. We’re extending the Jira brand, trusted widely for its unique power and support, to help large organizations scale the benefits of agile teamwork more widely across their companies. By bringing together a leading agile-at-scale solution with the number one software development tool, we’re empowering our customers and their teams to do their best work, no matter where they are in their agile journey.
Reach for the cloud – delivering a world-class cloud experience for customers
85% of new Atlassian customers start on an Atlassian cloud product, and millions of users around the world are using our products each and every day. We have a number of exciting new features and tools to help customers get the most out of their deployments today, and in the future:
Move faster with Atlassian Data Center, strengthening performance of our self-managed enterprise products
We’re announcing significant performance and infrastructure enhancements to our self-managed enterprise offering, Atlassian Data Center. This year’s platform releases — Jira Software 8.0, Confluence 7.0, Bitbucket 6.0, Jira Service Desk 4.0, and Portfolio 3.0 — account for many of these upgrades. For example, based on improvements made in Jira Software 8.0, advanced searches using Jira Query Language (JQL) are 31% faster on average, agile boards load 2x faster, and re-indexing times are now 71% faster.
In addition to these investments in our platform, we’ll be introducing a number of new features to enhance performance and strengthen Atlassian Data Center:
Last, but by no means least… we’ll go 100% renewable by 2025
At Atlassian, we want to play our part to combat climate change. It’s a huge problem facing the entire planet. But our core business is helping teams solve the impossible by breaking down problems into small, but achievable, steps.
Today we’re taking our first step in combating global climate change by pledging that 100% of our energy use will come from renewable sources by 2025. To formalize our goal, we’re joining RE100, a group of influential global businesses committed to 100 percent renewable electricity. This is not an easy thing to do, but it’s the right thing to do. It’s an exciting commitment that will have a real impact. We hope other companies around the world follow our lead.
We believe in doing our bit – stepping up and taking action to build a sustainable future. It’s what our staff want. It’s what our customers expect. And it’s what we must do for future generations.
