Why Atlassian?

Confluence often comes out as our recommendation for clients demanding an Enterprise-capable in-house wiki solution. Featuring intuitive controls, Confluence is low cost and highly usable, giving adoption a tremendous advantage over wikis that present a steeper learning curve. Atlassian release multiple free updates throughout the year tightening security and adding features. Additionally the community has produced hundreds of free-to-use plugins and a growing number of stellar commercial ones. Featuring Microsoft SharePoint integration, Confluence simplifies search and user authentication, and can round-trip documents produced in Microsoft Word with wiki authored documents.

Why choose Blended Perspectives?

Clients we have served that run Confluence have included Rogers, Grand & Toy, National Express Corporation and St. Joseph’s Hospital Hamilton.

To name a few of past engagements: we have conducted strategic assessments, conducted risk profiles, selected Confluence and recommended architectures, implemented in-house and managed hosted and virtual private network installs, themed sites and built custom training.

Background

In 2000, working for Arthur Andersen in London as a manager in Systems Integration, Martin sought a better, web-centric way for his team to collaborate.

After convincing management of the potentials of a wiki, Martin was granted a leadership position for a worldwide deployment of TWiki within the Andersen infrastructure. He lead a team of 8 developers and designers to port TWiki to Windows, deploy into the infrastructure, customize to in-house standards and integrate with Microsoft Index Server’s search.
