Take home message: Your final reason for delaying the implementation of the Atlassian stack has just evaporated. It’s time to simplify project management; improve tracking; increase accountability; and build collaboration across your teams.

Why read this post: You know you should be using the Atlassian stack. You also know it needs to be configured in the right way. The problem is, everyone in your team is flat out and your budget is tight. You need something that is ready to roll.

What’s new: Design Industries has built a best-practice configuration for JIRA, JIRA Agile and Confluence that will work for any team. Scalable Atlassian implementation is now quick, affordable and low risk. We call it Streamline.

Chances are you already know that Atlassian’s JIRA, JIRA Agile and Confluence are going to help you dream big, work smart and deliver fast. Atlassian is a powerful and reliable stack with competitive licensing that enables managers and teams to plan, track, report and collaborate in an integrated project management environment.

You’ve heard the reports. You’ve read the reviews. You’ve checked out the free trials. You’ve seen the size of the user community. We can assure you that it’s all true. It will save you time. It will improve your decisions. It will result in better products and faster delivery.

So, what’s holding you back?

That’s the question the team here at Design Industries has been asking our customers who delay their Atlassian implementation. And the answer is surprisingly consistent. “We don’t have the time and resources to set up our instance from scratch”.

Which got us thinking. What if there was a pre-configured instance of the Atlassian stack? While every team is different, there are many things that every team needs to ship great product.

You actually don’t need to start from scratch. Implementation should take hours, not weeks.

So, we built Streamline. It is a pre-configured, ready-to-roll instance of JIRA, JIRA Agile and Confluence that makes Atlassian implementation quick and inexpensive. It gives you an immediate, positive return on your Atlassian investment. Inside the first week, you will be saving hours of duplication and clearing the space to make better decisions. You’ll manage errors before they become problems. You’ll drive improvement rather than reacting to under-performance.

With the Streamline configuration, the interface between JIRA, JIRA Agile and Confluence has been honed to the finest point. Everything works – at velocity – from the beginning.

You want custom dashboards for different members of your team? We’ve already built them for you. You want all the artifacts that you need for planning and reporting pre-loaded into Confluence. They are there at the outset. You want your management reports to write themselves as you go about your daily tasks? We’ve automated the process. You need a knowledge library that self-directs your team. It’s already been written.

Streamline has been exhaustively tested and is being used by teams right now. It is adaptable and flexible to changing products, team structures and strategic priorities. It can scale up with your business growth – the same basic configuration applies for 50 or 5000 users.

Streamline has been built consistent with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) – a proven, publicly available framework for applying lean and agile practices at enterprise scale. The SAFe framework provides three levels of planning (portfolio level, program level, and team level) that can be applied to just about any organisation.

Teams already using agile practices can adopt Streamline instantly, but it’s also adaptable to any team that needs to collaborate and track work to deliver products.

Put simply, if you see value in Atlassian, you will see great value in the Streamline configuration.
