License marketplace apps for free in your sandbox

Great news for all Cloud premium, Cloud enterprise customers, and solution partners. You can now install apps on your sandbox environments with a free license if you purchased the licenses for your main instance. This means you can test the apps and setups on your sandbox without needing to worry about time and paying for the app license twice.

📚Article of the week: Unlocking The Value Of Open Collaboration To Drive Enterprise Agility - Study

Atlassian published a study called "Unlocking The Value Of Open Collaboration To Drive Enterprise Agility". Atlassian surveyed 750 IT and engineering leaders from enterprise companies across industries to get a picture of the current state of collaboration, culture, and processes. If you're in the industry, going through the report might bring some interesting insights, or you can read this article that picks up the key data from the report.

To pick up some interesting insight, 83% of leaders say their organization struggles with cross-functional collaboration. And only 54% of respondents said they have access to the right teams and people when they need them.

These numbers are a reality check for the companies that are in the need of change. There is a useful link in the article for a resource hub for CIOs where you can find best practices, more research, and resources.
