ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lotusphere 2012 -- AppFusions is announcing integrations with Atlassian Software Systems and enterprise collaboration technologies from IBM, and the release of three new products.
About Atlassian JIRA+ Enterprise Activity in IBM Connections
Large companies often have multiple JIRA systems – being both a corporate-wide solution and team-level issue tracker. Many JIRA customers are also IBM Connections customers.
With AppFusions' solution, cross-team JIRA+ activity streams are accessible within your IBM Connections deployment, continually.
Bringing real-time engineering activity from across the corporation to the front-line is powerful in itself. The "PLUS" part is including activity from integrated "other systems" (e.g., other Atlassian products, Box, Jive, UserVoice, Google Docs, etc.)
This YouTube video provides a glimpse, along with the forward potential (http://youtu.be/j7k0jn5ppTA).
"AppFusions continues to push the envelope as an Atlassian expert in system integrations," saidBryan Rollins, Atlassian's Group Product Manager of JIRA. "Their JIRA integrations incorporate our latest APIs focusing on connecting people, systems and activity. With their IBM integrations, they are exhibiting the continued potential of mixed system integrations, shared system collaborations, and large data trust visibility that, taken together, contributes to higher engagement and accountability by employees across the enterprise."
About Atlassian JIRA/Confluence integrations with IBM Sametime
"We use both IBM Sametime and Atlassian Confluence very actively. We're excited about this solution – seems only natural to collaborate in live discussions in the same place as our written discussions!" said Tom Digate, Director of eBusiness and Engineering Systems at Regal Beloit Corporation.
AppFusions' integrations with IBM Sametime and JIRA/Confluence provide users with work process efficiencies to collaborate more effectively.
Conversations in the enterprise happen in multiple places. For example:
- IBM Sametime -- a real-time UC messaging solution
- Atlassian JIRA -- a prolifically deployed PM and engineering issue tracking system
- Atlassian Confluence Wiki -- a popular collaboration platform
These systems run independent of each other, yet content-rich discussions often find fever pitches in JIRA or Confluence, where project details are actively discovered, discussed, and shared – in writing. With AppFusions' solutions deployed, Atlassian JIRA or Confluence users can see if colleagues are "available" with in-app presence/profile indicators, then launch a conversation directly from within Confluence or JIRA.
If your Sametime subscription includes advanced features (group meetings or video conferencing), these features can also be launched.
"Always-on presence indicators and instant live accessibility lends to many enterprise-wide minutes of saved efficiencies and eliminated workflow interruptions. AppFusions' integrations provide a valued advantage to capture thoughts and collaborate with real-time context," said Sherif Mansour, Atlassian's Confluence Product Manager.
