Atlassian recently announced it has acquired Trello, one of the fastest growing project management services available with over 19M users. In a blog announcing the acquisition, Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes said: “Trello will become an important part of the Atlassian portfolio, offering a fun new way for teams to organize the often messy range of information that feeds into great teamwork.”
We’re excited about many things on our Add-ons roadmap so we decided to share a glimpse into what we're working on.
Fall is tech conference season in Silicon Valley, and the biggest conference for ServiceRocket is the Atlassian Summit, which occurred the week of October 10 in San Jose, CA. We have participated in Summit since the very first one almost ten years ago. This year, as participation grew, we wanted to improve how we planned, organized, executed, and recapped our participation. We also wanted to maximizing participation in the conference, even with employees who could not attend in person. We used the Events feature in Workplace by Facebook to engage the team participating in the conference and employees around the world who could not attend.
Using the right applications to become more agile and innovative is everyone’s business.
Each year businesses invest IT budgets on a range of software tools and applications to manage specific tasks like customer relationships and financial accounting. But what about the process of managing work itself? It’s time to review how well work is managed and the options for modern tools that can deliver a positive outcome for any type of task.

After my interview with Matt Doar, I had the opportunity to interview Mikey Schott, Technical Consultant and Coauthor of the book, Practical JIRA Administration: Using JIRA Effectively Beyond the Documentation. Mikey Schott contributed entirely new topics to the book to address specific issues he helps JIRA administrators with every day. I caught up with Mikey while he was on the east coast of the U.S., between JIRA training classes.
