    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.

    Your organisation has to support the type of document and records management needed for this to work. In an organisation that only needs to store documents and maybe share with many different parties, this might not be the best-suited software. In a large organisation with stringent document and records management policies, this suite is well suited. It makes management of documents across business units easy to manage and control.

    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

    • I like that OpenText Content Suite [has] many versions and therefore every department can get a version that meets their needs.
    • Documentum version is very secure and makes content management seamless.
    • ECM OpenText also makes many processes easy, more so in the finance department.
    • The software is easy to use despite being very resourceful.

    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.

    • The user interface and configurability of that interface lack a lot of flexibility and modern tools.
    • There needs to be stronger and more powerful integration to electronic forms and workflow capabilities which are core to modern ECM.
    • Management of audit and content history needs to be modernized and made more dynamic and sustainable.

      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.

      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.

      • It has ensured that some processes can be expedited through the document management coupled with workflow. This give us the ability to provide a better services to the public.
      • It has reduced the use of paper since you can now access your document from your laptop or mobile device to use within meeting or even working from home.
      • It has saved on time by sharing document with parties thousands of kilometers away. and they can collaborate and the document is available immediately for access on this side. There is only one version available and multiple document attached to emails.
