Underneath the Atlassian Spotlight: GILT

July 27, 2015

Who or what is GILT?

GILT is a very hot “daily deal site” and has enjoyed phenomenal growth with now over six million members. Atlassian has spotlighted them with an interesting lead from their PMO team. Their website can be found here: http://www.gilt.com/company/news.

This case study highlights the benefits of Atlassian tools. Featuring tools such as JIRA Agile and HipChat, PMO Director, Justin Riservato states;

“JIRA Agile has been great for us because it’s been so flexible and it adapts to all our different workflows and processes across the company”

 The case study goes on to comment further;

“But individuals in the PMO organization most appreciate HipChat for its integration with JIRA. When an issue is created or updated in JIRA, the program managers receive a HipChat notification. Users can click on and seamlessly view and update a ticket all from Hipchat. This in addition to attaching files, adding comments, and immediately responding to questions.”

It’s also another reminder that best in class development organizations view program management and Agile execution as one integrated continuum. This includes the seamless support extended across all teams, no matter their size.
