Atlassian Analytics Open Beta

Great news if you want to take your work to the next level with Atlassian Cloud Enterprise products!

Atlassian Analytics and Data Lake are now in Open Beta. This means that if you're on Jira Enterprise, you can start taking advantage of these new products.

Why the hype, you would ask? Atlassian is launching a platform to enable you to unleash the raw power of reporting. Bring all your work data under a centralized roof with the new Data Lake. And create valuable insights using the Atlassian Analytics dashboards.

Atlassian announced his exciting new tool at Team 22 in April. Since then, the Analytics team has been hard at work getting feedback from early access users. They made the Data Lake connections and chart creation simpler and enabled more analytics based on early feedback. Now, the tool is stable and is open for proper usage.

The Atlassian team added a feedback button on the platform. You can drop suggestions while still in Beta and share your feedback at the open community group.

If you're keen to give it a try, add the product to your organization or ask your admin to do it. And invite your team. You should be ok to use it in production.

It seems they're not planning any major migrations of data, so the Beta version is stable for proper use now.

πŸ“š Article of the week: The Johari Window: a fresh take on self-reflection

As the article of the week, we chose The Johari Window: a fresh take on self-reflection.

You can use this technique for your team-building exercise and get to know each other better. The Johari window technique can help you get a better understanding of yourself and how others see you.

People tend to think that they are self-aware but as research shows, only 10 to 15% of people are actually self-aware.

The Johari technique is quite simple: you get a list of adjectives from which you choose 5-6 that describe you well. Then send this list to your team and let them choose the ones that they feel fit you best.

Draw a quadrant with 4 boxes and categorize the adjectives. You'll find the ones that both you and your team agree on. You'll also see the hidden area - adjectives that you selected but your team didn't. And define the blind spots - the ones that your team used but you didn't.

Use this tool to find out what you could work on to improve. It also helps you find the qualities you didn't know you have.
