Making a leading software company even more agile
Atlassian is a software company based in Sydney, Australia. Its most popular products are the issue tracker JIRA and the collaboration tool Confluence. Today, it has annual sales of $160 million, over 40,000 customers and more than 1,100 employees in Amsterdam, Austin, Gdańsk, Ho Chi Minh, Manila, San Francisco, Sydney and Tokyo.
Atlassian's mission critical website was aging and becoming unmanageable, and it decided to start looking for a content management system. With Magnolia, Atlassian is able to utilize its website as an ever-evolving global marketing and sales channel for its growing business. Magnolia has increased the interactive marketing team's agility significantly - just like Atlassian's tools make developers more agile.
As a developer-focused company, we're constantly preaching to developers that they need to be more agile. So we were looking for something that brought that agility to the content management of the website. Magnolia was recommended by a colleague and I found it really straightforward to get installed. Once it was on my laptop, I just knew that this was it. It was so easy and made sense to all our content editors and translators.
