Confluence

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.

I would recommend Lucidspark to any colleague who's looking to easily translate a program or campaign plan. I think the product is probably best suited to a program or campaign with a lot of moving pieces, as the tool makes it easy to see how things are connected, when different pieces of the project are starting/ending/etc. I think Lucidspark would likely be less appropriate for use in projects that are actively up and running or for use in a post-project debrief. I think the product's real strength is being able to plot out a project and get sign-off from a group of stakeholders, as the tool makes it very easy to quickly grasp what's included in the project.

Pros

Confluence

  • 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
Binoy Shah | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • It is very easy to get started. You can open a board and start putting stick notes on it right away. It's intuitive enough that anyone can dive in and use it.
  • It is very simple and unstructured. While Lucidchart was geared toward flowcharts (and I co-opted it to my own purposes), Lucidspark is open to whatever format you need. There are templates available which are helpful, but you can also free-form as much as you like.
  • It is easy to collaborate. You can share a board with colleagues, use it real-time to collaborate on a story map by putting sticky notes together from an entire team, or take notes together.

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
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • Sometimes we need to add images directly, which is not there in Lucidspark.
  • Not sure of the benefits of buying a premium version.
  • While collaborating, we are unable to track what the users did. I myself forgot, what i have put in the chart. Confused me. At least the user should know their tracks in the collaboration.

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.

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.

Lucidspark has a very simple and intuitive interface, I agree wholeheartedly. I started to use it on the first day of my job and I was unsure at first if I would be able to catch on quickly. Later, I was creating an organizational chart using Lucidchart and it was very easy to do.

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.

For the past 1 year, we have limited reasons to ask for any extra help or support from the Lucidspark support team as it has been a breeze using the platform. Generally the students were able to use the platform without much hassle and we observed that students could manage their projects most of the time

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.

Lucidspark

I have not utilized any other products similar to lucidspark. I have tried to utilize pre-templates created by microsoft but it did not give me the results I was needing or wanting as Lucidspark has provided me with. When I submitted my pre-templates that I created through Lucidspark my instructor was excited about the overall project due to the layout of the graphs

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
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lucidspark

  • Use of the tool has definitely improved engagement during online meetings, resulting in better productivity
  • Reduced time cost in "writing up" afterwards, as text and images can be exported or even copied/pasted out
  • License costs compare favorably with some market alternatives
