At the latest virtual event by Atlassian, Team '21, Mike Cannon-Brookes revealed 5 new Atlassian products merged into Point A. It is an Atlassian program in collaboration with customers to create new products so that the end results satisfy the needs of customers by solving their most critical work challenges. He declared: “This is one of our biggest sets of product announcements in the history of Atlassian. Point A is a game-changer for us. It means we can deliver world-class innovation at a fast pace with our customers on cloud.” 

Point A leverages Atlassian’s investment in its cloud platform to deliver cross-product capabilities – such as a unified search and common user interfaces – and speeds up the process of new product development.

Jira Work Management 

Formerly know as Jira Core, it allows users to track, coordinate, and manage work in one place in a structured manner. Jira Work Management is meant to improve collaboration in business teams, bringing all the power of Jira in a user-friendly, low-configuration interface. Jira Work Management connects smoothly with Jira Software and Jira Service Management, allowing for task dependencies across products and compatibility with features such as Advanced Roadmaps. These new features have been automatically available since April 28 to all cloud business projects, avoiding data loss after transitioning from Jira Core to Jira Work Management.

Jira Product Discovery

Built specifically for product managers! This unique product from Atlassian is the right place to deposit all ideas and data of a product, keeping team engagement up and focused around product plans – from discovery through delivery. Usually, Product Managers switch between different teams like business, UX, and tech and are also the connecting point between departments and customers. Jira Product Discovery is meant to help product managers prioritize what will make an impact on the user's activity and seamlessly integrate it into delivery planning and execution.

Compass

Compass gives software development teams a bird’s eye view of the digital services across their organization. This product was modelled after a tool built by Atlassian for internal use. Later, it was edited and improved to help software development teams recognize the advantages of distributed architectures. Through Compass, development teams can manage the split resulting from distributed architectures, improve their processes, and adopt better ways of working together.

Team Central

The idea behind Team Central is to reduce manual reporting, get rid of repetitive project updates, and avoid the need for external tools while maintaining and tracking real-time progress, keeping teams up to date, and having stakeholders informed automatically. Additionally, Team Central wants to replace outdated status spreadsheets with a user-friendly easy-to-read feed. Kind of like a social media platform for status reporting.

With Atlassian's Team Central, teams can finally break down the silo mentality and have access to real-time progress, updates, potential problems, and priorities. Learn more about Team Central in our Blog post.
