Kudos to Mike & Scott and the Atlassian Team 🙂

And here is how the community has reacted to Confluence 3.0’s launch.

Gil Yehuda, a former Forrester Analyst:

I found though both formal and informal surveys that Confluence lives at or near the top of the list of Enterprise Wikis when I speak to large enterprises.  I can’t quote the formal data, but I can share the following anecdote:  Many times I’ll ask a crowd how many people use wikis in their organization, then I’ll ask how many of those installations are Confluence.  Typically about half of those who say they are using a wiki will keep their hands up.

Bill Ives

Many large enterprises, like Accenture or Sun, have sanctioned Confluence as their IT approved wiki standard. Customers frequently use Atlassian’s Universal Wiki Converter to migrate other wikis to Confluence.

Atlassian hits $100million of sales

Within a short timespan of 7 yrs, our partner, Atlassian has hit $100 million of sales. This is really amazing considering the fact that the prices for their product is in the range of 4 figures. This means that a lot of people have bought and are using the tools developed by them.

According to their founders, the recipe for the success are:

  • The software had to sell itself with no $$$ for a sales team
  • To sell itself it had to be low price
  • To make money we’d have to sell lots of copies
  • To sell lots of copies, we’d have to build really good software
  •  

    We knew that we definitely made the right choice to partner Atlassian to market Confluence and Jira together with our best practices.

     

    Congratulations to Atlassian on this achievement 🙂
