Partnering with leading vendors and releasing new solutions helps top off six months of unprecedented growth at Adaptavist.

At the Atlassian Summit in Vegas, April 9-11 (booth 1131) we will be showcasing our latest products, services, and partnerships with Atlassian ecosystem heavyweights ALM Works, Riada and Tempo.

“The past twelve months have been an incredibly exciting time for Adaptavist. In the past year, we’ve increased overall revenue 40+ per cent, our employee base by almost 50 per cent, and widened the breadth of our product and services to help our customers gain a competitive edge in the age of perpetual change,” explains Simon Haighton-Williams, CEO of Adaptavist. “As digital transformation becomes the new norm across borders, teams, and industries, Adaptavist has leveraged new technology, the concept of continuous integration and cultural disruption to meet the needs of enterprise customers.”  

At Atlassian Summit, we will be highlighting:

Automation power to the people: Introducing AutoBlocks for Jira

AutoBlocks for Jira is our visual, low code tool, based on Google’s open-source Blockly technology, that allows all users of Atlassian tools (business or technical) to create complex automations and customisations to mold Jira to meet their needs.

"Automation is critical to modern IT success so we're thrilled AutoBlocks now makes it easy for both technical and non-technical users to tap into the power of automation and enable agile workflows across the entire company running on Atlassian," says Joff Redfern, VP of Product at Atlassian. "It's great to see top Marketplace vendors team up, think customer-first, and solve challenges together. This open and collaborative approach shows how Atlassian's culture transcends into its thriving ecosystem."

In the spirit of DevOps and continuous integration, we've partnered with leading Atlassian Marketplace vendors, ALM Works, Tempo and Riada to enable the use of this powerful technology with other apps that have a presence across Atlassian’s customer base.

"We are happy to support our long-time partner, Adaptavist, in their effort to make automation simpler and accessible to a larger audience,” says Igor Sereda, CEO, ALM Works. "Our app, Structure for Jira, is perfectly fit for integration with AutoBlocks. The combination should provide greater flexibility for users and enable a wider range of solutions for our customers.”

"When it comes to providing better customer experience and remaining on the forefront of innovation, we at Tempo are glad to have Adaptavist as partners to spearhead that movement,"  adds Ingi Brown, Project Management Lead at Tempo.

"We are always aiming to make things easier for our customers and Autoblocks can provide an easier way for our customers to tailor the Insight automation framework. We’re therefore looking forward to work with Adaptavist to enable Autoblocks for Insight," says Tommy Nordahl, CEO at Riada.

Disruptive digital transformation offerings to be showcased at Atlassian Summit

VisualScript Studio launches to provide data visualisation for Jira and Confluence. Now development teams can track and create visual reports and dashboards to see complex relationships and create transparency across departments. And customers are already finding value. "We have always used a physical whiteboard to visualise Sprint dependencies, features and relevant milestones during our PI Planning. VisualScript Studio has provided us with a real-time dashboard in Jira to visualise this data. As a result, we have started to see improvement in collaboration and efficiency across globally distributed implementation teams”. Rob Negus, Director of IT Product Delivery, Agile and Delivery Management Office, Arm IT.

Introducing best practice admin as-a-service to the Atlassian ecosystem

Assist is our on-demand Atlassian administration offering, which brings ‘best practice-as-a-service’ to the Atlassian ecosystem. The service was designed in response to growing demand from customers looking to supplement existing in-house capability or fully outsource day-to-day Jira and Confluence administration.

Scaled Agile Framework for Enterprise® implementation via the Atlassian toolset

We're also launching a new best practice solution for implementing SAFe® with Atlassian tools. This out-of-the-box solution provides the framework for global enterprises to leverage SAFe methodologies and agile development practices.
