I think [Atlassian] Confluence is an amazing option for larger companies however for a smaller team of less than 20 it might not be the best choice. It definitely helps our team stay connected while working remotely and we're able to stay on top of projects with ease.

  • Following SAFe process / Multiple Agile Release Trains (ARTs) / Portfolio management
  • Company undergoes regular external audits of their SDLC practices
  • Comprehensive reporting is required
  • Pipeline templating is required
  • Many git repositories are needed having to link to a unified backlog
  • Access to backlog work items and reporting is required for business stakeholders

  • Vast range of Template for Automated Build and Release Pipeline with option to have conditional triggers
  • Code repository mechanism is aligned with GIT which is a well known public repository system
  • Bug Management is also an integral feature of this tool
  • Dashboard creation option of Build and Release pipeline is also available

Cons

Confluence

  • Over the past 6 years the feature set has not significantly expanded
  • Integrations with 3rd party apps (DropBox, Google Drive, Slack) is either through 3rd party plugins or rudimentary at best
  • Frequent interface upgrades and complicated permissions settings makes getting new employees up to speed fiddly in some cases

  • Searching through code can be somewhat cumbersome. It would be nice if there was a way to do general searches in certain areas of the system.
  • Without proper training, the system can be confusing to navigate. This issue can be prevented with good training but it is something to be aware of.
  • Navigation can be clunky at times depending on where you are in the system. For power users, this is not a huge deal but it is a tad bit annoying.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Because we are a Microsoft Gold Partner we utilize most of their software and we have so much invested in Team Foundation Server now it would take a catastrophic amount of time and resources to switch to a different product.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Azure DevOps Server or TFS is a complete suite in itself. From Developer's machine where the code is developed to the production environment where the code is meant to run it take care of complete flow within itself. It acts as a code repository you can check-in check-out codes using GIT interface. It also acts as a Build and Automation Test tool which can help you to judge sanctity of your code. It further acts as a release manager to deploy your application to the production environment. And all these steps can also be performed without any manual intervention with the option to have approval processes. Hence its a perfect blend of all set of tools and capabilities required to bring code to production.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

I have not had to use the support for Azure DevOps Server. There have never been any issues where I was not able to figure it out or quickly resolve. Our Scrum Master has used support before though, and the service has always been prompt and clear with a customer-focus

Alternatives Considered

Confluence

[Atlassian] Confluence is backed by direct, and superior support from Atlassian versus their vendors. For end users, [Atlassian] Confluence provides way more options for layout and content, while also being simpler and easier to use. Most other tools also require a higher level of interaction with IT or global administrators. With confluence, both content creators and consumers can draft an consume content with a much smoother, more intuitive experience.

We're with Microsoft since day one of starting the business. Since then, we've not encountered even a single reason not to be a part of the MS Family.The primary reason for our association is Innovation, Cost Effectiveness, Ease of Use and Great Support.Support and help materials are really awesome. Mostly within 30 minutes, any critical issues are addressed.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • Confluence has increased cross-departmental visibility into content, activities, and projects
  • Confluence has also increased collaboration across teams
  • The lack of a workflow has created a wild west environment where stakeholders are confused of where to create and find various types of content

  • Automated testing saved 2 million a year over manual costs.
  • Automated testing ensured quality of code builds if the test did not pass the build did not go forward wasting both development and test time.
  • Burn down provide a visual of sprint status in real time.
