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 509 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 82% of all instances. These 509 apps all have the distinction of having more than 500 instances.
Congratulations to the following vendors for their October 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, including ProForma: HR Onboarding Workflow, Refined for Confluence Cloud, and especially OKR for Jira.

This month we’re also giving you an insight into the fastest movers in the marketplace. In absolute terms GitHub for Jira added nearly 2,000 instances, a remarkable feat. Meanwhile, GitLab’s 842 instance growth is very impressive and means it features as the second fastest growing app in both absolute and percentage terms. We can also see that COING’s free Clockify app is pushing forward and challenging in the increasingly competitive Time Management category.
