[Enterprise-Grade] SecurityUse the popular Atlassian tool and feel comfortable uploading your files and personal information to the public. Confluence features [enterprise-grade] security across entire organizations.

If you have more than 2 developers this thing is basically a requirement within github to manage sprints if you use agile methodology. Why use a different website entirely when you can run your entire board right from github itself? I've tried other solutions but basing everything on github issues makes it so no duplicate work has to take place. If the UX quirks and mobile were fixed this would be 10/10 for me!If you're only one or two devs on a team it may be overkill to use, but if you're going to scale it's better to put the process in early.

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

ZenHub

  • Integration with GitHub.
  • Great Kanban board functionality.
Kurt Martin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Confluence

  • Some of the components can be a little clunky to use and configure on pages.
  • I've run into a few issues where edited pages refuse to publish and work is either lost or time wasted copying and pasting to a new document that will publish.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZenHub

  • The software seems to at times have hiccups, and is not accessible
  • The software sometimes throws errors that it can't do something, or save, and you can't determine why, and typically need to start over
  • The admin type functions/entering values, codes, projects, releases, those sorts of things, do not seem to be logically located

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.

ZenHub is one of the best GitHub repo-management software integrating the usage of work-boards and task management, with the ability to integrate several team members to the work table. This method makes the team more organized since everyone can keep track of their time and tasks of themselves and also others, so you can see how fast your teammates are working or if they need any help with something they're working on.

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.

Support is good, but quite honestly, I haven't needed any support since 2015. As I remember, I was required to open a ticket and had to wait a few days for resolution. I give it a rating of 8 because of the lag in getting a solid resolution, but it was resolved adequately.

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

Confluence

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.
Benoît Desroches | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZenHub

I have used Workfront in the past, which in my experience, is best with a traditional waterfall methodology, similar to Microsoft Project and the other more traditional project management software projects. ZenHub is truly designed around the agile methodology. Other products that claim they are agile oriented seem to just be adjusting and tweaking their traditional product to include a few agile features.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • 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.
Brandon Patton | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZenHub

  • Saving dev time, making it easier to create a process they enjoy and use without issue (intangible)
  • Making conversations between developers and product teams/easy to facilitate (intangible)
  • Sped up the entire process (intangible)
