I have been working on project management for the past 14 years. In the process, I started using Jira and Confluence as the company's R & D process management tools. Of course my role is more of a system administrator than an end user.

Since last year, I gradually switched to corporate culture promotion and training. This allowed me to better understand the advantages of Confluence in collaborative work from the role of the user. We put more training materials, text, and pictures in Confluence to share with the company user.

The number of monthly active users is close to 30,000, and the monthly PV is 1.7 million. This data is exciting!

Wow the Day 2 Keynote made me realize how much there is for me to learn about Atlassian and the cloud, it is going to be an exciting year of learning for me (and transformation)!

Same here - as my company is not really into cloud (makes the IT boss getting a heart attack) after the keynote it‘s impossible to ignore the possibilities 😱

Day 2, was great, they stopped talking about cloud for a few minutes. Data Center part was the best part for me. Looking forward to the ability to add dates to future sprints (something my users have been asking for).

For those of us on prem looking to go to Data Center this was some good stuffs!!

A ton of features around Performance/Scale and Response/Compliance.  Being able to not have to deploy to a cluster initially (updated license in your server instance) is awesome. Integrated CI/CD support for Bitbucket FTW!!!

Very strange hearing the head of server and data center talking about cloud. Makes it seem like we are making a bad investment by choosing atlassian for our on-prem needs :/

Kinda scary as a certified admin TBH, but I did love hearing that there is at least some thought and effort going into DataCenter.

Making Data Center working on a single node is a first step to remove standard Server offering and probably perpetual licensing.. It is only a matter of time when you would have to choose Cloud or Data Center.. And of course mostly people would choose Cloud since they would not want to manage servers, deal with maintenence.. Would be great to at least have an ability to deploy Cloud version on prem (on own private Clouds) but seems that it would not gonna happen soon.. 

I sure hope not. Server fills a need for businesses that are not Microsoft size, but also not startup size. As a medium size business it is cheaper for us to manage our own servers and not pay per user per month. We would probably abandon the product if we were forced into a licensed user model. I have never seen a convincing argument that going cloud for everything is cheaper.

@Davin Studer- To be honest it is getting harder to find a product that would not be licensed per user / per month(year).. Office, Adobe... etc. .. and Atlassian is following this path even that this mean hiring more people to provide customer support...  not sure if there is any good Jira alternative, but this is the current reality. We both are old experienced admins that used Jira and saw prices 10-15 years ago.. You were able to buy Jira (unlimited) for 2k .. Now it is 200k! Until you use old pricing (renewed) that is cheaper for you but when the precise would rise up I think you would have to make a decision where to go...

Did a little searching and found a few cool pages about Remote Summit 2020 - was there any page of pages so to speak?


This was a good one:

I think one of the coolest things I'm looking forward to diving into is Atlassian Forge.  I was accepted into the beta earlier this week so I've already got my weekend activity.  I have some ideas for our own company that will really help streamline some processes if I can do what I'm hoping to be able to do in Forge.

I also think we might need to start looking at Cloud premium not because of our size (we are a small company) but Advanced Roadmaps, Project Archiving, and Automation for Jira look like some really awesome features that might be worth investigating.

Cloud Enterprise looks really cool, but we are a long way away from needing it, but it looks really awesome!

My favorite quote from Summit Day #2 was from Sasan Goodarzi, CEO of Intuit. 

He says "Don't listen to what customers say, observe what they do.  Most customers don't actually do what they say."  Quite an interesting point.  Thanks Sasan!

I really like the new plan view for Portfolio. I've been patiently (ok, maybe not so patiently) waiting for this feature to be released. This makes using Portfolio so much easier to show to the non-technical folks in our organization.

I also like being able to plan sprints ahead of time.

It would have been nice to have more on data center and server.  I know that there is a focus on cloud products but it would be great to have a better balance on products.  It was great to see the direction that Atlassian is taking their cloud products in and it is exciting to see all of the improvements.  Hopefully some of those improvements will make their way to server and data center.
