We made a lot of announcements at Summit, and so too did many of our lovely sponsors. If you’re interested in Atlassian plugins, add-ons and product integrations, then you should get your mouse poised to click on some of these puppies:
CustomWare, the Summit platinum sponsor, made two announcements: A Get Satisfaction + CustomWare + Atlassian JIRA Connector and an integration between JIRA and Zendesk, built by CustomWare, built using the Zendesk Network Help Desk API
Stepstone, winners of this year’s Summit Launchpad competition, showed off Zen 4.0 Beta, a powerful add-on to Confluence for drag-and-drop page design, micro-content editing, improved drafts & publishing, and more.
Valiantys, whose plugins SQLFeed, VertygoSLA and PowerReport are all available for JIRA 4.3, announced the addition of Xpand IT (Portugal) to the growing list of Atlassian Partners who distribute and integrate Valiantys plugins around the world.
Zendesk announced a new open standard to improve customer support and service called Networked Help Desk.
Catch Limited released the latest version of their JIRA-integrated test tool, Enterprise Tester 3.2.
Once again, many thanks to all 24 sponsors who joined and helped us make Atlassian Summit 2011 a success!
