    Likelihood to Recommend

    Atlassian

    It has a comment option on the page, where you can tag other teammates tagging them. it sends the mail notification. Comment at the page end is pretty good for referring to other stakeholders and future references of the topic on the page. Creating the highlights of the discussions, and meeting held points with highlighted tagging. Easy shortcuts such as to add a date just type "//". The interface is cool and has easy shortcuts for quick page making.

    Liquibase

    Liquibase works really well for CI/CD and version control if configured properly. It did take a lot of tweaking and reworking some items to really understand a lot of how the pieces fit together. I wouldn't recommend using it without pairing it with GitHub or other source control repo applications though. It feels like it really shines when working in tandem.

    Pros

    Atlassian

    • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
    • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
    • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
    • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability

    Liquibase

    • Tracking changes through DATABASECHANGELOG table
    • Works with different DB tools (Oracle, SQL etc.)
    • Rollbacks are easier with tag if you have rollback scripts in place.
    • Comparing databases (in different environments) or their states or even creating a new data base with existing changesets.

    Cons

    Atlassian

    • Navigation. Similar to other Atlassian products, users have complained that aspects of Confluence are difficult to learn right away[.]
    • An issue that users can face when using Confluence is attempting to edit a document while someone else is editing. Although users can access the document and save it, they are unable to see the changes happening in [real-time] that other users are implementing until they refresh their page. Some users have also noted that this can result in loss of edits.
    • Another drawback of using Confluence is its specific organizational structure. All information is stored within one page or project, although the page is able to be broken up into sections, some users do not prefer this style. Users can use the ‘page tree’ on each page to organize the different elements of each project.

    Liquibase

    • the build has a very tedious process - taking backup and restoring for every script to be processed
    • Error handling, many errors are left unmanaged due to which finding the root cause of the issue is difficult
    • HTML reports can be optimized for low space
    • Permissions management i.e. in case of the build is failing, permissions can be checked beforehand. rather than failing in process execution.
    • Project creation from TSV files makes it complicated

      Atlassian

      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.

      Usability

      Atlassian

      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.

      Performance

      Atlassian

      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.

      Support Rating

      Atlassian

      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.

      Liquibase

      I have given this rating because there aren't too many products that do what this solution does, which is to group packages of SQL code that implement a database change request. It's a unique product. So far, it's been quite a good solution for us. And the vendor continues to enhance the product. It is good software.

      Implementation Rating

      Atlassian

      Overall, I am very satisfied with the initial implementation (and the subsequent upgrades and implementations made over the years).
      This product has never rose to the level of being an major issue at an executive level. It has quietly and valiantly done it's job for our company!

      Alternatives Considered

      Atlassian

      I haven't use any other software that I could compare to AtlassianConfluence. The closest one would be Sharepoint, but it's a different beast. Sharepoint has more feature, but it's a lot harder to use and understand. Furthermore like many Microsoft solutions the UI is terrible and very difficult to understand sometimes. Atlassian Confluence is just plain easy to use.

      Return on Investment

      Atlassian

      • We've gone from folders and folders of Word documents and PDFs into a single system with a search feature to bring all of our data together and trackable
      • While onboarding took a bit longer for the company (to switch from a Word document centric mindset - to a web-based one), overall the company has embraced the features and power of Confluence within the working stack
      • However, as costs continue to climb for the Atlassian product, we are forced to continue our evaluation of the product - with replacing it a remote possibility if it begins to outprice its usefulness to us.

      Liquibase

      • No database mishaps. It happened before when we were doing all the database management manually and we dropped one too many columns, and you really don’t want to do it by yourself. Liquibase has helped us mitigate that.
      • We have experienced zero downtime apart from the planned maintenance windows. The updates happen quickly and we have reduced the amount of time we leave the software offline.
      • By being so quick, we have reduced the deployment time by a considerable margin. We know we can trust the software to do all the heavy lifting for us.
