New Apps in the 500 Club! – November 2020

December 3, 2020

Welcome to the new Apps in the 500 Club! When we started our analysis over a year ago, we wanted to understand if there was any major Pareto effect in the marketplace. Also we needed a way to determine who we should prioritize in adding to our categories.

As a reminder vendors self select their categories on the Atlassian marketplace. Its certainly democratic yet it can mean if you want to know who the real players are in any category, there is a lot of “noise”.

We’re now tracking 531 apps which are the real movers and shakers in the Atlassian marketplace – why? In the chart below you can see that 15% of all apps make up 83% of all instances.
These 531 apps all have the distinction of having more than 500 instances.

Congratulations to the following vendors for their November results. You can also see how we’re categorizing them. We can see that there are a number of apps showing spectacular growth this year, particularly 1667 Bug Workflow and Gantt Suite for Jira with 5360% and 7486% growth this year respectively.
