YPG's mission is to support neighborhood economic growth by building strong relationships between Canadian businesses and local consumers. It does this through YellowPages.ca, RedFlagDeals.com, and various mobile applications for iOS and Android that connect businesses with their target customers.
More than 10 development teams work on the media properties, and they’ve gone agile with the help of Atlassian. YPG's various product teams manage development work in JIRA and use Confluence Team Calendars for cross-platform release schedules.
“By making better decisions, we're able to release software more quickly,” says Maurizio Mancini, director of QA at YPG.
Even non-development teams like Marketing, Manufacturing, and Service have jumped onboard with JIRA – about 1,000 people total. YPG was able to get everyone up to speed quickly.
