  If you missed out on this year’s Atlassian Summit, we will give the round up and fill you in, as if you didn’t. This year’s theme was Smarter, Better, Faster, Stronger Teams – we loved this, especially since at cPrime, we enable smarter, better, faster and better Agile; this was definitely right up our alley.

The cPrime round up:

We strive to provide our clients with the solutions that throttle and/or save Agile initiatives. cPrime’s theme for Summit this year was “cPrime Saves”. Our team morphed into Agile super heroes: the Agile Avenger, the Software Savage, the Testing Titan, The DevOps Diva and the Scaling Siren and teamed up to fight against project failure. We had a lot to show off this year and were eager to make our introductions: photo-6

Continuous Delivery

It is safe to say we have mastered Agile Delivery and Agile Software solutions, and now, as a company, we are rallying around DevOps and the importance of Continuous Delivery for our client’s success. Tools are the most important aspect of a DevOps implementation, and for that reason, we have partnered with all the major players in this space. In addition to Atlassian, we have also joined with VersionOne, Cloudbees, JFrog, QASymphony, Saucelabs, and more, to ensure the right solution for our clients.

Atlassian Training

Our purpose as an Atlassian Platinum expert is to help our clients best utilize Atlassian products. Focusing on developing courseware has been a big initiative for us as of recent. Now, with it available, it is time to get all the members of the team up to speed with the power of their software. Atlassian training is a perfect compliment to our software consulting services, which so many clients already utilize. photo-5
