Atlassian Team ‘24: a wrap-up of our favourite moments

Atlassian Team '24, our favourite moments. Banner with lightbulb

Last week, The Adaptavist Group headed to Las Vegas to attend Atlassian's annual flagship event, Team '24. Over the three-day event, we heard from Atlassian founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar and President Anu Bharadwaj about new updates for the Atlassian suite, alongside great sessions from partners and customers to help you make the most of your tools.

Here are some of our best bits: 

Founders keynote

Of course, one of our highlights was hearing directly from Atlassian founders about the great new features and updates coming to Atlassian tools this year. From new product launches like AI-powered Atlassian Rovo, more security features with Atlassian Guard, and the combining of Jira Software with Jira Work Management to become simply Jira, this year is shaping up to be an AI-fueled, teamwork driven, opportunity for all departments to collaborate better.

"From the announcements at Team '24, we can see the consolidation of tools. With Jira Software and Jira Work Management combined to be Jira, and Atlassian Access grouped with Beacon to become Atlassian Guard, where you previously had to go to different tools, now it is so simple for our customers to really take advantage of."
Jarin McClinton, Global Head of Professional Services, The Adaptavist Group

What does this mean for your teams?


More than 30 new AI features are coming to your Atlassian toolset to streamline the way your teams work. Atlassian Intelligence is becoming more intelligent, providing more opportunities to collaborate better across your global teams. These include better brainstorming with AI-powered Confluence whiteboards and embedding Smart Links within your Confluence page lists.

With the introduction of Atlassian Rovo, searching your knowledge base and unifying your users has never been easier. Atlassian Rovo is designed to revolutionise knowledge discovery and enable you to identify the right information quickly and effectively for all your teams. Rovo brings unified search to all the Atlassian products and more, providing easy access from every tool. Plus, Rovo Agents provide task-driven AI agents, streamlining your processes and enabling your users to deliver high-quality work faster.

Work management

The combination of Jira Software and Jira Work Management allows all teams to benefit from a single product, Jira. With Jira, teams across your organisation can work together in one tool, in a way that suits their needs while focusing on the shared priorities and business goals.

Service management

Jira Service Management (JSM) is not just evolving; it's revolutionising how it supports functions beyond the traditional IT team. Imagine the integration of intelligent AI enhancements designed to empower all teams, making their daily tasks more manageable and enabling them to deliver exceptional service experiences. 

Virtual Agent is already helping JSM users cut down on support tickets that require a human touch, and now it will be available in JSM's help centre, too. All your customers need to do is type their question into the help centre's search box, and Virtual Agent will fetch the answer they need along with links to any related resources.

One additional feature we're especially excited about is Instant Service Desks. Powered by AI, you can summarise what you want your service desk to do, and JSM will create a service desk for you without the fuss.

Atlassian has unleashed some exciting AIOps innovations to help operations teams better detect, prevent, and resolve incidents. AI-powered insights will also make it easier to understand past alerts and responders and take quicker action. With this feature, JSM can also suggest potential root causes and recommend appropriate resolution resources, like runbooks and knowledge-base articles. Expect automated post-incident reviews, too, to help prevent future incidents.

From alert consolidation, which ensures you get fewer notifications with better-quality information, to ticket comment summaries, which provide a quick view of previous actions, to AI-powered auto-assigning for tickets, there's a lot to celebrate from the JSM side.
