Atlassian's suite of tools has grown over the years, as has the company itself. Here, we look at what these solutions can offer users, and how they fit together.
As an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner, we’re often asked by our clients to advise them on the best way to integrate Atlassian tools into their existing setups, or to implement the Atlassian suite in its entirety as part of a brand new development environment. Often, teams will try one tool, such as JIRA, and then want to use more Atlassian tools when they discover just how intuitive and powerful these solutions are.
With the Atlassian tools implemented, a software development team has everything they need to design, build, test and release software in a controlled, manageable environment.
Software Development Life Cycle
JIRA Software is the number one software development tool used by agile teams to plan, track and release world-class software. JIRA Software is designed specifically for software teams and provides best-in-class agile tooling, deep developer tool integrations and a focused project experience for your entire software team.
Bamboo is an excellent tool for continuous integration and automated build and testing. It has a comprehensive range of features and integrates closely with JIRA.
Bitbucket is a Git repository management solution designed for professional teams. It provides the tools to encourage collaboration around your source code, the extensibility to ensure it integrates into your workflow, and the ability to massively scale as your team grows.
Atlassian Clover identifies the riskiest code in your projects so you can focus on testing where it’ll have the most impact. It runs in your integrated development environment (IDE) or your continuous integration system (Bamboo), and it includes test optimisation to make your tests run faster and fail more quickly.
Crucible enables you to review code without the hassle normally associated with this part of the development process. Review code, discuss changes, share knowledge and identify defects with Crucible’s flexible review workflow.
Whether you’re coding, debugging, testing, refactoring, or just keeping an eye on the codebase – FishEye puts the info you need where you want it, in JIRA issues, Bamboo builds, email/RSS alerts, OpenSocial Dashboards or your IDE.
