Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) January 16, 2006 — Atlassian Software Systems today announced its selection by Deloitte in the Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific. With three-year revenue growth exceeding 900%, Atlassian has not only positioned itself as one of the fastest growing software companies in Asia Pacific, but also the fastest growing software company in Australia.
In just four short years, Atlassian’s unique approach to software development has seen its two software applications, Jira & Confluence, embraced by teams in more than 3,000 organisations in over 55 countries around the world. Atlassian’s customers span every industry sector and include organizations such as Oracle, Citigroup, NASA, Honda, GlaxoSmithKline, and the United Nations.
“Because Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific measures sustained revenue growth over three years, being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific is an impressive achievement,” said Ian Thatcher, partner in charge of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific program.” Atlassian deserves a lot of credit for its remarkable growth.” In its 4th year, the program ranks the fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific, highlighting both established and emerging companies. Atlassian ranked 43rd overall, and among Australian companies was ranked 4th fastest with three-year revenue growth of 945%.
“We are all really honored to be recognised by Deloitte,” said Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-founder and CEO. “In 2002 we set out to build a different kind of software company: one that really listens to its customers, is highly open and transparent, is committed to legendary support and maintains an unrelenting focus on innovation. It’s great to see just how well this is working for us.” In addition to direct sales, Atlassian has been rapidly expanding their partner program. Today, over 40 resellers around the world distribute Atlassian software and provide value added services including customisation and training.
Atlassian’s software enables organizations to collaborate and manage knowledge projects within, or across, diverse teams. Atlassian Jira, the leading bug and issue tracking software, and Atlassian Confluence, the world’s most popular enterprise wiki, meet the needs of organisations and projects of any size. Customers receive enterprise-level performance without the typical cumbersome enterprise licensing terms. Together with a transparent development cycle, source access, incredible features, active communities, and legendary support, Atlassian is reinventing the way users acquire and use enterprise software.
