Great news from the Jolt Awards… Atlassian JIRA 3.4 was selected as a Defect Tracking, Change, and Configuration Management Productivity Winner. Our own Scott Farquhar was on-hand to receive the winner’s plaque at the award ceremony that took place last night at SD West in the Santa Clara Convention Center. Twenty Jolt judges whittled down hundreds of entries looking for products that not only demonstrated innovation, quality, and flexibility, but also products that are “ahead of the curve; universally useful; simple, yet rich in functionality; redefine their product space; or solve a nagging problem that has consistently eluded other products.”
Credit for the award is divided equally between the JIRA development team, which is second to none in building a brilliantly simple and feature-rich product, and our customers who are always helping us improve the application. Thanks, everyone!
The Software Development Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards have been presented annually to showcase products that have “jolted” the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. Jolt Cola, the fabled soft drink quaffed by software developers for sustenance during project development marathons, sponsors the awards presentation.
