Technical Account Manager, Atlassian
In the enterprise there are rarely simple solutions to highly nuanced problems that satisfy all needs. Several customers might each ask "How do I make Jira/Confluence faster?" and each require a different answer. Using this example, this talk will pick apart the inputs, outputs, concerns, and realities of answering a short question with a long answer. We'll then discuss real-world examples from our own internal instances, to give you a taste of the process we've gone through to solve our own performance problems, and to show why there is no simple playbook; "it depends" on a lot! The key takeaways are:

Traditional Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) tools are big, expensive, and challenging to manage and integrate. They typically require an army of people to implement and maintain. At Atlassian, we use the power and flexibility of JIRA Software and Confluence to manage our GRC for a low cost, while seamlessly integrating with our existing processes and teams. Join us if you manage risk and compliance, work in information security, conduct audits, or if you are just tired of chasing audit remediations. We will share best practices that organizations in all industries or geographic locations can leverage to manage their governance, risk & compliance needs.
Dan Hardiker is CTO / Co-Founder of Adaptavist and has been leading a team of experts manage Atlassian applications at scale for over a decade. Working with the largest Atlassian customers across the globe has given Adaptavist the opportunity to develop best practices for managing, monitoring and maintaining applications of all shapes and sizes. Dan regularly speaks at tech conferences around the world, but usually spends most of his time helping Adaptavist's clients get the most business value out of their Atlassian application stack, and the ALM processes that they support.
Atlassian products contain lots of data, and often there isn't just one Jira system in use. Be it moving to or from the Cloud, or between instances - merging and migrating data can be hard. Dan Hardiker from Adaptavist will share the challenges they face and solutions they've found to common data portability issues. Learn some best practices, including their standardised Export-Transform-Load approach, and uncover many hidden gremlins you may trip over along the way. After this sessions you'll be ready to fearlessly move data from one Jira instance to another!
Running applications at enterprise scale is hard, and when you add in secured and restricted infrastructure, it becomes even harder. The best way to achieve the success of IT service at enterprise scale is to reach the point of standardization. Learn how a large international bank implemented a standardized process, and went from 25 Jira instances each with custom processes implemented, to now running a single instance of Jira Software Data Center with only 2 processes shared across 25,000 users! We'll share our experiences, challenges, and best practices for managing and supporting tools with more than 25,000 users in single instance of Jira, Bitbucket, Confluence, and Fisheye/Crucible.
