Viva Las Summit – We’re back!

April 26, 2019

It’s been an exciting year so far here at Automation Consultants and it doesn’t stop there as April 8thmarked the start of our third Atlassian Summit. While Atlassian themselves celebrated their tenth Summit, welcoming more than 4,000 attendees and delivering the best Summit to date!

As you can imagine the days flew by with a jampacked schedule full of keynotes, breakout sessions, partner and developer days, coffee, great food and amazing company. We loved catching up with you all and meeting a host of new faces both in and out of the expo hall and by now I’m sure you’ve heard more from us.

The Summit provides a great opportunity for us to engage with our customers and existing Atlassian users – hearing real-life issues, requirements and experiences and how our three-tiered approach of ProductsConsultancy and Support can help. But we’re not all talk, our consultants were at the ready to demonstrate our top Marketplace Apps throughout the Summit, including: Optimizer for JiraApprovals for Confluence and Compliance for Confluence, all of which featured a bright new look this year!

A snippet into our time at the Las Vegas Summit

We hope you made it round to Booth 213 if not for our conversational skills or demos but for the swag and our dance competition… congratulations to Michael Brown who danced his way to an undefeated score of 45,615,856 and a Bose speaker!

And if we didn’t think the Summit could get any more exciting, Optimizer for Jira (previously Cleaner for Jira) was a key feature in talks from Airbnband IBM, notably on how the App helped them scale their Jira to support a growing user base. Discover how Optimizer for Jira could help you and your user base today at the Atlassian Marketplace and start your free trial for Optimizer for Jira, available on CloudServer and Data Center.
