Enterprise Wiki Market Heats up with New Hosted Version of Atlassian Confluence
Confluence Hosted Offers Enterprise-Grade Wiki With Zero Deployment Cost for All Organisations
SYDNEY, Australia-Atlassian today announced the release of Confluence Hosted, a new hosted service to make wiki-based collaboration more accessible for small, mid, or large organisations or groups with limited IT resources. Confluence Hosted is based on Atlassian Confluence, the world's most advanced enterprise wiki. By bringing its enterprise experience to the hosted market, Atlassian can now offer enterprise-grade functionality and scalability without the deployment requirements of a traditional enterprise platform. A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation of Confluence Hosted is available at atlassian.com/software/confluence/hosted.jsp.
Today wikis are used extensively for knowledge management and collaboration within organisations of all sizes. Increasingly, wiki software has been chosen for corporate intranets, extranets and web content management. Confluence Hosted is ready to use in seconds, eliminating any installation or maintenance for individual users. This relieves dependency on IT resources, time and budget allocation. Its tiered pricing model starts at US$49 per month.
Business Objects (NYSE:BOBJ) tested an early beta of Confluence Hosted and ultimately standardized on Confluence for internal collaboration. "We were able to set up the wiki quickly and painlessly. It spread from a hosted departmental solution to an on-premise enterprise-wide solution," said Troy Angrignon, Emerging Technology Strategist at Business Objects.
He added, "Atlassian's quality of service was tremendous, they were extremely responsive to our questions and needs. Since the beta, we have transitioned to a full on-premise solution that integrates with our Exchange and Active Directory. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a hosted or on-premise corporate wiki to consider Confluence."
"Every organisation, from a two-person start up to a multinational corporation, faces collaboration challenges," says Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes. "We're pretty excited that we can now make the leading enterprise wiki accessible to an even broader audience with Confluence Hosted."
