Associate DevOps' year long approach at Confluence

If you are looking for a scalable solution for confidential notes, knowledge, or for a place to throw a general memo, then Confluence is a great system.
This system carries quite a cost to it, so if you aren't willing to fork out the funding or if you don't have a large enough user base (I'd recommend at least 500 active users), then there are alternative solutions that are rather effective such as Sharepoint or a Gsuite equivalent.

Confluence is the best project management software for each and every type of
organization regardless of their size and working resources. Moreover, this
product is beneficial enough to make my work history at a safe place for longer
period of time. I would definitely recommend it to others to take benefit out of it.

Powerful tool with no design inspiration

We find it can be a good "knowledge base" for projects and ideas. You can load up process ideas and finalised processes easily, documents, tables for marking off progress. I personally find the design and styling uninspiring and I think that is why usage in the team is lower than I would like.

Simplicity at its core

Likelihood to Recommend

Atlassian Confluence is well suited for managing a knowledge base for an organization. It is easy to search for information that one may need about a particular project or subject. It is, however, more of a wiki and less of a document management platform, so if there is a need to manage heavy documents, then this may not suit that need.

Confluence Great for Large Companies

Likelihood to Recommend

Large companies would do well with Confluence. Small companies who don't need broad communication would be wasting money. It's hard to get important info easily accessed with larger companies, and Confluence allows that information to be readily available to anyone who needs it, regardless of position.

Very good support for all main scenarios such as team collaboration on documents, organization of work and tracking the progress. It provides a clean, nice view of the actual version of documents of any kind, including graphics, schemes, and diagrams, etc. Supports mobile devices with a responsive interface, allowing us to keep in touch with other content creators on the go.

Atlassian Confluence - Easy and Intuitive Knowledge Sharing

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Atlassian Confluence is extremely well suited for capturing knowledge and sharing it with your organization. Whether that takes the form of blog posts, technical documentation, or project status reports, Confluence can handle it all. Anytime that written documentation with detail would be valuable to your organization, Atlassian Confluence is THE tool to use.

The only time I'd say that it is less suited for use is as a substitute for a face-to-face conversation. Sometimes people will use Atlassian Confluence as a communications vehicle when an in-person dialog would be much more expedient. Of course, you could always capture the output of that conversation as a Confluence page!

Confluence is very good in situations where you need to share with the customer what are your instructions and procedures to resolve a specific problem. When asked, you only need to send him the knowledge-base article as a proof of work. We also use it to share this kind of information with the overseas team, as we are in a country and some of our coworkers live in another country far away.

A Major Organizational Value-Add If your Culture is Right

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Confluence allowed our Marketing Department to share things like workflows, best practices, templates, and meeting agendas. This facilitated any of us knowing what the others did, and how to back them up in cases of absence, as well as providing intellectual continuity with former employees, who's work persisted in Confluence beyond their dates of employment.

I would NOT recommend Confluence for offices that struggle with QA or employee motivation, as it is very easy to not record your work or new developments in Confluence. It requires an intentional work culture and a core of power users who are handy with organization and can take lead on visioning.

Confluence for great documentation of your projects and company

Great for creating company documentation and/or manuals. Being able to create spaces makes organizing your wiki easier. It is better than many free or cheap/open-source alternatives where you would have to do a lot more work to create something similar. Having add-ons for further features is excellent.

Atlassian Confluence is a great tool for documentation and integration into Jira Service Desk and Software apps

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

The Service Desk utilizes the Confluence sections where access has been granted for customer visibility so that when they are looking to submit a ticket, it gives recommended solutions prior to submitting the ticket. Also, from the agent side on the Service Desk, they will be giving a few possible solution documents to the ticket in question. We have not built out our documentation that much, but I can see this being EXTREMELY helpful for troubleshooting tickets.

Atlassian Confluence is great as a central place to take and store meeting notes. It's also very nice because multiple people can edit the same page at the same time. It is also a fantastic place to store project status information to make it easily accessible to many people. We find that because Confluence is so easy to use that our employees are much better at creating documentation and keeping it up to date.

Organizations that are fast-growing and/or geographically dispersed would benefit from Atlassian Confluence. Where things move quickly, it's helpful to have all processes and systems documented so new hires and other teams do not have to rely on individual people passing the information along. They can find everything they need in Confluence.

User for collaboration with IT on HR Projects

Confluence can link to Jira and be utilized as part of your project management solution. I think if you are using Jira this application may make sense to utilize for tracking all important details. However, I haven't seen other projects that have a connection to Jira to say that this is the best product available. With big projects, the document trail seems to be a little messy.

Highly likely to recommend especially if IT organization is using JIRA. They work well together and it can be a good replacement for SharePoint if you are using that for housing requirements on IT projects. Easy to work with support team when issues do come up, create a ticket and response time is very good.

A Good Collaboration and Information Management Tool

Likelihood to Recommend

Confluence works well in a system where a lot of people are collaborating. It keeps everything organized and is located in one easy to access location. It is ideal for working on projects together. Especially projects that require information sharing. Compared to email communication, Confluence holds the information from all users. This is compared to using traditional file folders and email, whereby there are access issues and not all information is shared or searchable.

If you want to write something down-- it may be design flow, project document or something else-- Atlassian Confluence is just the best option to use. It has lots of plugins available like Gliffy and Codeblock, which makes your doc more clean. Outside this scenario, I think it is not well-suited. One more thing-- it is too costly to use it on your own.
