Lightning Talk: The economic impact of Atlassian work management

Join us for a conversation with Enterprise Strategy Group about the benefits, cost savings, and the positive impact that Atlassian’s work management solution can have on your organization.

Are you an organizations that increasingly grapples with collaboration hurdles – frequent interruptions, dozens of disparate tools, information silos across each team and distributed workforces across time zones. You are not alone.

That’s why Atlassian recently commissioned a report with TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) to dive into the impact and benefits that customers saw after adopting a unified work management system. ESG found that organizations using Atlassian’s work management solution saw:

  • a 25% reduction in the length of projects
  • a 50% drop in time spent searching for information
  • an increase in project success from 57% to 75%
  • and much more!

Join us for a fireside chat between ESG and Atlassian as we walk through the current challenges for organizations, key findings from the report, and customer stories highlighting the impact of a work management system.
