Scaling Agile with Jira Software and Portfolio for Jira


Why go?
Scaling Agile is one of the biggest challenges for growing organizations. ABN AMRO has self-driven teams and it’ll be interesting for a lot attendees to see how they managed to scale using Atlassian tools.

In 2015, ABN AMRO, one of the largest banks in the Netherlands, rolled out agile across their organization. Within a year and a half, ABN AMRO grew from over 100 to 7000 users, and they are now moving towards using Jira Software Data Center. This growth greatly increased their system complexity, that included 65 administrators that had created over 65 issue types, 250 statuses, and 400 workflows. In this session, ABN AMRO will share the process of introducing scaled agile to their organization, which includes identifying the impact on usability, gathering metrics, and improving system performance and maintenance. You can also learn about how Portfolio for Jira is an integral part of scaling agile across an organization and which best practices you can apply to your own journey. More talks like this

How Hipchat Ships and Recovers Fast with DevOps Practices

Mickie Betz, Software Developer, Atlassian

Why go?
Delivering software continuously has changed the development process a lot over the last few years. Fasten your seat belts and get a full ride from Mickie through the Hipchat development process – from roadmap plans to being prepared for handling disasters.

Hipchat operates a ‘You Build It, You Run It’ service model, where developers are responsible for building, testing, and operating their systems. While we have a high speed of development, things can break – but we also recover quickly. Learn about how we’ve integrated best practices within our planning, building, testing, deploying, and operating processes to optimize for speed and efficiency but also mitigate, prepare for, and handle incidents. Mickie will walk you through five steps for how to operate at a high speed of development and also prepare for any incident — planning, prevention, preparation, management, and collecting feedback— and instruct you on how you can build these processes into your Atlassian workflow (including Jira Software, Hipchat, Bitbucket, Confluence, Bamboo, and Statuspage).
