Atlassian announced this week that it is bundling its well-regarded online collaboration tools for Agile and DevOps teams, in what they’re calling the Atlassian Stack. Companies can acquire the Atlassian Stack as an easy, one-time procurement to improve communications in teams and automate the Agile and DevOps processes. The Atlassian Stack includes the popular products JIRA Software, Service Desk, Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo and HipChat.
“People are picking Atlassian as a platform. [The Atlassian Stack] allows them to procure it as a platform,” said Cprime CEO Zubin Irani in an article for CRN. “That’s aligning with a lot of the demand we’re seeing in the market. This simplifies the procurement process by having one SKU you can buy or renew.”
DevOps is a practice and a culture that requires team members from Development and IT Operations to transform their behaviors in order to improve team interaction and the quality of their work. It includes a tools element to automate monitoring and security of software as it is being produced, allow team members to update code on the fly, and also enhance their visibility into each other’s activities.
“Atlassian tools are central to how thousands of teams facilitate their DevOps practices, strengthening collaboration across teams, improving visibility, and ultimately, breaking down silos,” said Atlassian in their announcement.
Atlassian is offering its tool stack to help companies consolidate and share tools, where Dev and Ops teams within the same organization might be using disparate tools that don’t communicate.
Cprime is one of the world’s largest system integrators for Atlassian Software, and is an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner and Atlassian Marketplace Verified Vendor. However, it is unique from any other partner. Cprime provides expertise and best practices for Agile and DevOps to successfully deliver end-to-end project management solutions that bridge the gap between process and technology, and focus on the teams who carry them out.
The Cprime solution addresses the fragmented way Agile and DevOps initiatives are implemented, unifying teams and processes to deliver an integrated approach that supports the software goals of any organization. Its DevOps consultants can help clients leverage the Atlassian DevOps Marketplace as part of this holistic solution, manage the procurement and renewal process, and support those tools thereafter.
