Welcome Wednesday: Would you rather? - Atlassian Edition

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I thought it might be fun to play a round of “would you rather ?“ this week. Here we go:

Would you rather:

Have unlimited budget to spend on a single Atlassian product (and it’s apps). But, you can only have free subscriptions for all other products.

Or:

You don’t have any budget for apps, but you can have the standard subscription for every single Cloud product (and all future ones).

Let me know what you would choose in the comments below. Also, if you would like to propose your own “would you rather?“, feel free to do that too.

Have a great rest of the week!

Oh, that's easy! I am a 'getting the most out of it" type of person, so Standard IT IS.

👀 This should be interesting, @Jimmy Seddon  I can't wait to see more responses.  👀

In my experience, most organizations end up extending Jira & Confluence in some way with at least two or more marketplace apps. And when you listen to their use cases, it's easy to see why.

Moreover, when you peel away the onion you learn that the companies that aren't using marketplace apps are only balking due to lack of budget.

They'd have some of them installed, too, if they had the budget.

I would have to say the standard subscription option, though I would hope that comes with budget for the number of users I'd need. Right now, we're using an app because it's cheaper than Confluence licenses for all the people who just need to view content.

Free plans don't give you all the features, users, and Atlassian support available with a standard plan.

I would safe go for all out JSM here. It can do what all the other prods do with apps. And Standard lacks automation. No automation, no fun!

It would have to be Standard for me as well, as there is just too much goodness across the board of tools. But I would cry every time something for Enterprise came out that I didn't get.

Standard it is for me. I'd love to have access to the entire portfolio. Although I did consider just going for Confluence totally pimped out, it's not practical enough.

I think I'd probably go for the the standard subscription for every single Cloud product. Generally I find that (with the right configuration), you can get 90% of the same results of an app.

OK, I’m going with the proverbial it depends. To be honest, with my clients, they’re mostly focused on one product anyway. So I would probably go all out on that one.
My biggest hesitation on that and being the free subscriptions on everything else is simply the lack of security and being able to control permissions.

But you’re making us choose between two evils, ha ha.

I'll admit, I had some doubts at first, but after giving it some serious consideration, I totally see why everyone's going for the standard option. It's like the perfect balance of what we all need and that is why I chose the standard option!

I would go in the same direction as the most of answers here - standard plan for all products. We've managed to get most requests up and running with native Atlassian features (although some may not be that 'pretty'), but when looking at free plans, and as someone already mentioned, the biggest concern there is lack of configuring security and permissions.

It was great to read what established users would pick we are starting out with standard Confluence, Jira Software and Service Management and see where it takes us. I already have one app in the mix and looking forward to the journey.

Standard ftw!

Younes Abou Khzam March 11, 2024

Definitely unlimited budget on a single product. It will extend its capabilities to the maximum, which will allow emulation of functionality of other products.

Unlimited budget for Trello, please - especially now free Workspaces are being limited and my tiny charity budget doesn't stretch as far as I'd like!

Well, if the first option is for a specific instance, I'd rather have everything available for one product on one instance and then the rest on another one...if it makes sense

I would opt for a standard plan that includes unlimited cloud access and apps such as Confluence  This one is an exceptional tool for enhancing teamwork.
