Atlassian Redesigns Website; Launches A La Carte, SaaS Service For Product Development
Atlassian, the enterprise software company, has really hit its stride over the last few years. Founded in 2002 in Sydney, the company has today built a solid base of 26,000 customers, which include some big names like Facebook, Zynga, Cisco, and Adobe. In July of last year, the startup raised $60 million from Accel to scale and ramp up M&A. Since then, the company has bought Bitbucket and SourceTree to allow developers to host their source code in Bitbucket (or any other hosting platform) and then manage that source using SourceTree.
Since the beginning, Atlassian?s goal has been to create software development and collaboration tools that enable enterprise teams to quickly and easily plan, build, and launch products. The startup?s flagship software products, like JIRA and Confluence, let software development teams take advantage of issue and project tracking in an effort to improve speed of development and code quality as well as giving those teams a single place collaborate, share, and discuss files, minutes, specs, mockups, diagrams, etc.
According to Atlassian President Jay Simons, the company is currently seeing 40 percent year-over-year growth and $88 million in revenues (up from $56 million last year). Building on this growth, the company is today announcing a series of upgrades and updates that should be a boon to customers worldwide. For starters, the company has moved into new office space at 7th and Harrison in San Francisco, and it is also launching a complete redesign of its website, which goes live this afternoon.
But beyond this, the company is today launching a new SaaS offering called ?Atlassian OnDemand?, which will allow software development teams to use the company?s products (including JIRA and Confluence) at a lower, discounted rate. Starting at $10 per month for 10 users, the multi-tenant, cloud-based SaaS essentially allows users of its software to take advantage of its development and collaboration products with the benefit of easy configuration.
