Introducing Point A, Atlassian's program for bringing new products to life – Join us on the journey!

Today we’re introducing Point A: Atlassian’s new program that connects early adopters (like YOU) with our newest products powering the future of teamwork. Every great journey starts at Point A.

Over the last year, we’ve put together an internal program that enables Atlassians from all corners of the company to team up to bring great ideas to life by providing a repeatable process, a standard set of tools, and clarity on how to tap into supporting teams. Basically, we created our own framework to bring new ideas to market via rapid iteration and incremental investment.

One year in, with 35 product ideas under our belts – we’re excited to share a handful of the new products in their early stages with our customers under the Point A program!

Today, you can join the Point A program as an early adopter and try our two beta products: Jira Work Management & Team Central. Or you can join the waitlist for our pre-beta products: Jira Product Discovery and Compass.

By joining Point A, your team can capture the value of Atlassian’s newest technology before anyone else. Work with founding teams and get insider knowledge, provide critical feedback, and shape the tools that will change the future of teamwork.

This is only the beginning. In May, we'll be kicking off the process with our next cohort of new ideas and founding teams. We hope you’ll give our first batch of new products a try today! We’ll be sure to keep you informed when the next cohort is ready.

You can join the Community groups for Point A products here to ask questions or give feedback.

@Claire Maynard  Can you say more about the Jira Work Management effort?  "A way to connect every kind of team" doesn't tell me much about what the value proposition is.  Doesn't Jira already do that? :)

@John Dunkelberg Jira Work Management is a new Jira that's built specifically for business teams (Marketing, HR, Finance, etc) with new views like list, calendar, timeline, and boards. It also includes Forms for easy requests management from other teams. Every type of team in an org can now be on the Jira platform with a flavor of Jira that meets their needs. Having everyone on the same platform will help the cross-functional work across orgs.

You can learn more here on the waitlist page: And if you're attending Team 21 this year (virtually), you will hear a lot more about the evolution of Jira and Jira Work Management.

Congratulations for this great initiative!

@Claire Maynard is Jira Work Management a replacement for Jira Core? Or a separate product?

Hi @Esther Strom thanks for your question! Jira Work Management will replace Jira Core. So all users that are using Jira Core today will have Jira Work Management when it's live.

@Claire Maynard from context about the "replace Jira Core" I'd guess this is then a Cloud-only offering?

Hi, @John Dunkelberg yes Jira Work Management is for Cloud-only.

Thanks, Claire! That's really good news. We have Core, but don't use it much because it doesn't really offer anything that can't be done with a standard SW project. But the new views are going to be super helpful. Fingers crossed that perhaps some of the views (calendar, especially) will eventually be available in SW projects as well.

Is there any additional detail you can provide on Compass? It wasnt very clear to me from the press release exactly what issue the product was looking to solve. Once I looked into Team Central I thought it seemed like something that would be very useful, so I was excited to hear more about Compass to see if it's something we'd be interested in as well!

Is there any rough rough estimates when early access for Product Discovery will roll out? We are literally building up and splitting our Agile boards into Discovery and Delivery and I'd hate to do all that work and have to redo it again if something is useable in a month or something?

I'm also curious about Compass.

@Roneal Desai @Esther Strom There will be more information shared during today's Team 21 keynote. Be sure to tune in! You can also learn more here:
