Incubator progress pushed forward by Atlassian Bamboo

I just came across this blog from a couple weeks ago. From the Wicket Diary blog, you can follow the links to the Bamboo project: In the mean time we have our own server (kindly provided by Servoy) provide us with a confluence and JIRA setup for Wicket Stuff, and best of all: Bamboo for building and pushing new development builds to the box. The installation of Bamboo on the server and hooking it up provided a push for fixing our builds. It's a great example of our newest product, Bamboo, a continuous

Update: Since I wrote this post back in February, things have changed in the Web2.0 world. Microsoft picked Confluence as the enterprise wiki they wanted to work with for their inaugural launch of the SharePoint platform for Web 2.0 solutions, and we've just announced the SharePoint Connector for Confluence. On the FASTForward blog Kathleen Gilroy discusses her top answers when groups she’s showing her Otter Networks service ask “Why can’t we build this on Sharepoint?

A new study conducted by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth’s Center for Marketing Research confirms the trend I've seen especially in the past year - that as soon as people and organizations understand the wiki and its potential, it becomes an indispensable tool. The survey looked at members of the INC 500, a list of companies selected by growth rate rather than revenue, found that for two out of every three, social media tools were either very important or somewhat important to their business

Your Vote on a Read/Write Intranet

Rod Boothby, Innovation Creators blogger, writes that organisations should consider implementing a Read/Write Intranet, which is precisely what many of our customers have done using Confluence.

Content was lost, misplaced, difficult to find, difficult to share, and difficult to version. At Atlassian, our intranet

Wikis Reviewed

Just about everything in Confluence shows polish and attention to detail. You can instantly create pages in the designated space and edit with standard wiki markup code or a rich-text editor. Linking to other pages is simple, and the system ensures links don’t break if you reorganize pages into a different hierarchy. Further, categorizing pages into logical parent and children groups is point-and-click simple. Each page has a printable view and can be exported to PDF. Read the complete InfoWorld

Confluence at IBM Redbooks

Just a quick blog mention and interesting customer example: IBM is deploying wikis both internally and externally, and point the way to some interesting uses for a wiki for their development community. I also saw that IBM are also using a wiki to build new redbooks, a fine thing, as Tesha wiki at SAP would attest. If you visit the Redbook wiki, and you dig around carefully, you will see that it is powered by not Notes, not Qedwiki, not Ventura but by Confluence. That quote is swiped from Vendorprisey's
