Australian Data Residency
The team at Atlassian announced the introduction of Australia as a data residency destination. If you're an Australian-based company using Jira, Confluence, and JSM you can now choose to host your data in Australia.
Now Atlassian customers get a selection of US, Europe, Australia, or Global when creating a new Jira or Confluence Cloud instance. Data residency is available across all tiers, no matter if you're on an Enterprise plan, Standard, or Premium.
Furthermore, in this post, there's an update with ETA on when existing Standard and Premium customers will get the ability to move their data to the desired data center location. It does seem like there's a phased rollout scheduled to start on the 15th of October.
Star in a Migrations Marketing Video!
If you recently migrated from server to cloud and you want to star in one of the Atlassian videos and on social media then here is a great opportunity for you. Jess - senior marketing manager at the Atlassian Enterprise migration team is looking for customers who recently migrated over 1000 users to Cloud to create a documentary-style video about Cloud migrations.
If you're interested you can fill out the form in the post and Jess and the team will get back to you.
No Question Left Behind Community contest
There is a "No Question Left Behind" competition running in the Atlassian Community from the 1st of September 2021 until the 28th of February 2022. This competition is meant to incentivize the community to help more and answer Confluence product-related questions.
The neat bit is that every month there will be 3 winners announced that will get increasingly awesome prizes. And it will culminate with a $1000 prize to be awarded to the person who answers the most questions over the entire period of time.
The winners for September are Kishan Sharma, Brant Schroeder, and Alex Koxaras. Each will get branded North Face backpacks and Contigo metal tumbler.
This month's prizes have been announced as well: $200 food delivery gift cars. So you better get on the action and answer all the Confluence questions you can find!
High velocity ISTM tour
On 10th November there will be an ITSM world tour called High Velocity. The event is 2 hours long, with 3 main talks and Q&A and it's broadcasted twice over the 10th of November to cover all time zones. The talks are focusing on the IT teams and Service management and the style of the event and website resembles a rock concert 🎸⚡️.
Submit your Jira Service Management use case and win!
Atlassian is inviting customers like yourself to submit a unique JSM use case. You got until the 14th of October to fill in the form and tell Atlassian how JSM is helping your organization. The judges will select a group of great submissions as the finalists which will have their use cases presented at the High Velocity event where the attendees will vote to crown a winner. If you win Atlassian will donate $5000 to a charity on your behalf. How cool is that?
📚 Article of the week: Designing something new with the Atlassian Design System
The Atlassian design team decided to test their design system by redesigning already existing products using the Atlassian design system. This was really nice experiment and a way to get feedback from their team. There are a few selected designs in this post like a Habitat app aka AirB&B, Pinterest, Youtube, or Spotify redesigns.
If you're an Atlassian Marketplace partner like us this post is a great, short read and you can get some more UI inspiration and see how the Atlassian team uses their UI elements in different contexts.
