Dreamforce 2017 is almost here and we are excited to announce our participation at one of the most informative events of the year: a fun-filled week of inspiration, innovation, imagination, and entertainment.
DevOps requires a cultural shift in organizations that adopt it. Failing to successfully make the transition from waterfall, agile, lean, or other project management and general management philosophies can destroy a company. But the situation is not all doom and gloom.
The DevOps Enterprise Summit 2017 (November 13-15, 2017 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco) is described by the organizers as 'a conference for the leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes both evolving technical and architectural practices and the methods needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.'
Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017 Stresses Hybrid Integration Platforms as Key to Modernizing Organizations
The IT industry is changing, and if you want to thrive, your organization has to change with it. This was reinforced at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017 from which I’ve just returned.
In the past, it took a lot of work to set up systems that allow users to access Atlassian applications with a smartcard. Administrators who wanted to set up access for smartcard users had to tinker with property files or XML files – frankly, this was a pain.
In part one of this two-part blog series, I discussed how the ConnectALL Integration Platform can enable communication between teams almost instantaneously – processes, data (like status, priority, and assignee data), dependencies between issues (like "this issue depends on this other issue being resolved first"), comments, and attachments can be shared across an organization. The ConnectALL Integration Platform can create an efficient collaboration mechanism. The Platform also reduces the number of licenses needed for an application (ConnectALL only needs one license per application synchronized), and users only have to be trained on one platform. They continue to use the tool they are used to without having to switch to another tool in order to do manual data entry.
Effective application integration is a big deal. It can eventually be the difference between a company's success and its eventual decline. It's so big a deal that IT Advisory Company Gartner studied the topic and created a research paper about it - 'Market Guide for Application Integration Platforms,' (Gartner, Market Guide for Application Integration Platforms, 19 June 2017) a paper that is available to Gartner subscribers.

If you attended last week's Atlassian Summit U.S. 2017, it was easy to get overwhelmed by all the useful information. You would have seen how to make your organization run more smoothly, improve communications, and increase its effectiveness. If you weren't able to attend, you're probably wondering what you missed.
