Summit_Logo_Transparent.pngThis is another post in our ongoing preview of Atlassian Summit 2010. For the next few months leading up to Atlassian Summit, we’ll be publishing interviews and guest posts from our speakers and sponsors at the event.
This interview is with Doug Piper, Vision Solutions, who will be speaking on Getting Agile with Your Requirements.
59dougster.jpgWhat’s your title and role within the organization?
Vice President, Product Strategy.
What product(s) will you be presenting at Summit?
Confluence and Jira: how we are using these tools to manage our software product development life-cycle … cradle to grave.
How is your team using these tool(s)?
Confluence is the primary tool that our R&D, Product Management, and Marketing teams use to collaborate across five development centers in four time zones. We use Confluence as a central portal by integrating content from Jira, SalesForce, and RightNow that allows us to manage requirements, maintain product roadmaps and product profitability dashboards from a central location.
Please give us a short preview of your presentation.
We are going to take a quick tour of the systems, workflow and dashboards we have created and the key success factors that enabled us to deploy a robust solution very quickly, with limited resources.
What do you hope to get out of Summit yourself?
I am always looking for new innovative ways to streamline the way we develop products and collaborate effectively across dispersed R&D centers.
