As a Gold Sponsor of the Atlassian Summit 2019 (April 9-11, Las Vegas), we are proud to also sponsor the annual PreSummit event organized Monday, March 25th by the New York Atlassian User Group.
Previously Blended Perspectives’ CEO Miles Faulkner presented our A Round Up of Third Party Testing Apps for Jira Server; What’s the Secret Sauce for selecting the right solution for you? whitepaper – and we will publish a new version shortly. 

It is a good opportunity to hear live some of the speakers if you’re not going to the Summit:

Enabling Business Management with Jira – Brian Bobryk – Product Owner, Engineering Management Tools, Bloomberg LP

Working in a mature, established organization can present challenges in adapting Agile practices at the team level, while also collecting and providing information about various projects and initiatives that senior management requires to manage the overall business. Agile frameworks, such as SAFe, may offer a useful way forward, but it may not align directly to existing business planning and management practices.  New concepts, such as value streams, are introduced, while traditional concepts such as projects and programs disappear. Learn how we created our own Scaled Agile Framework- managed using Jira – that leverages the best of both worlds — supporting traditional business management practices without hindering the agility of our software development teams!

Embracing Jira Cloud: Tips from an ex-Server admin – Russell Zera – Russell Zera – Lead Delivery Manager, Agile Coach, Elsevier, Inc

Most long-time Jira Server Admins, like Russell, were skeptical of Jira Cloud. But now, he’s a proud Jira Cloud convert. Join him on his journey of migrating to Jira Cloud and learn the tips and tricks that helped him survive and thrive in a cloud world. He’ll share the techniques to keeping your instance running smoothly (even when you can’t log into the system to troubleshoot issues, restart it, or see where slowdowns are occurring). And, you’ll learn how to navigate critical concerns areas around information assurance and security on the cloud. Russell is also a fellow AUG leader for the Philly area so we are extra excited to have him spend the evening with us.
