Is Answers an Atlassian Product?

How can I get a solution like Atlassian Answers in my organization? We've adopted Jira already, instead of using a solution like Q2A, this would be much more ideal. Can you point me in the right direction on how to setup an answers system?

Sort of.

Answers is a fork of OSQA (small link at the bottom of the page here). Atlassian have customised quite a lot of it from what I can make out.

OSQA is open source, so you can help yourself to that.

There is some talk of Answers becoming a product from Atlassian, but I don't know how far along that is, or if it will happen.

We (Atlassian) just announced a beta of a brand new add-on – Confluence Questions. You can learn more in our announcement blog post and sign-up for the beta here.

I looked at OSQA and found that the project has not been maintained. Instead we found www.question2answer.com which appeared to an updated and maintained version. Since we're on Jira already, it would have been nice to just add it to the existing solution rather than have to author a bridge ourselves. I looked at Quandora which is kind of cool, but it is a bit costly to get into for public use and no access to the source means it's a no go for us.

We are looking at heading down the same path with question2answer, as well.

Any chance you would be willing to share / collaborate on integrating q2a with the Atlassian services?
