G’day Enterprise Community!
We really appreciate how many of you joined us for our Remote Summit last month. Whether or not you were able to make it, we want to go one step further, and give you even more insight into the investments we’re making for our self-managed enterprise customers so you can plan better (and also be the first to know of some cool things we’re shipping).
In this post, I’ll lay out our key priorities for Data Center, Bitbucket, Confluence, Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, Jira Align, and Portfolio for Jira. You’ll also be getting some highlights of recently shipped features and some sneak peeks into what we’re planning to release in the near-ish future (which is noted as “coming soon”).
Without further ado, let’s dive in.
Data Center continues to expand beyond its original focus of performance, scalability, and availability to add even more value for enterprises. Building on your feedback, we’ve identified new opportunities to meet your needs with features that help you comply with new security regulations, and scale or enhance the ease and security of managing users in your Data Center products. And we’re not just making improvements to the platform– we’re also committed to ensuring the apps connected to your instance are just as reliable and performant at scale.
Here are some of the latest investments we’ve made into our core Data Center products:
Cloning and fetching large repositories in Bitbucket is now 2x - 5x faster and we’ve been making significant investments to expand instance scaling capabilities. We’re also doubling down on our commitment to developer happiness (and productivity) with features that boost the developer experience and integrations that let developers build, test, and deploy without context switching.
As part of our developer productivity toolset, like Bitbucket, we’re heavily focused on integrated CI/CD and on improving the developer experience for Bamboo. In the future, you can expect to see further improvements to branch configurations and even better-performing logs with friendlier UI.
Improved branch configurations: We’ve added the ability to define and maintain branch configurations that differ from the master branch. This gives developers the flexibility to update build configurations as often they need in line with the corresponding code. (Bamboo 7.0)
Better logs: We’re making it easier to locate failures inside logs in Bamboo so developers can diagnose the build failures more efficiently. (coming soon)
We’ve been hard at work to improve compliance and have improved performance across all major actions with mean latency cut in half. Looking to the future, we’re investing in more enterprise features, accessibility improvements, improved archiving and editor experiences, and upgrades to further modernize your experience.
Our investments in performance and scale have been paying off for Jira. Between our 7.13 and 8.5 Enterprise releases, we’ve increased the speed of viewing boards by 34% and viewing backlogs by 70%. But we’re also focused on helping you scale agile beyond the team level and are modernizing our platform (shipping new features and fixing bugs that impact enterprises most, and improving accessibility and reliability).
We’ve been hard at work to ship new features that increase agent productivity and make our ITSM offering even more robust. In addition, we’ve been continuing to invest in performance, stability, and integrations with other Atlassian products. A highlight: between our 3.16 and 4.5 Enterprise releases, it’s now 35% faster to view dashboards and 24% faster to view page loads.
We’re committed to giving you even more insights to improve the predictability of your plans and take the guesswork out of your scoping decisions while also making it easier for you to share your plans with stakeholders and refer back to your plans over time.
We’re invested in helping those of you in large scale agile transformations improve the ability to make all work visible, get it aligned to strategy, and hone your ability to adapt and innovate faster than before.
