Top Apps of 2021 (so far…)

April 29, 2021

At Blended Perspectives we believe that, as Atlassian focuses on Cloud and performance at scale on Data Center, how you leverage 3rd party apps is going to make a huge difference in terms of your Atlassian ROI.

However, the Atlassian Marketplace can seem a daunting place at times with over 3600 apps and over 1.54 million active instances. Therefore, at Blended Perspectives we created our Marketplace Analytic Research Service (MARS). MARS is our database for tracking 3rd party apps: we have over 2.5 years worth of detailed marketplace data that can be compiled into customized reports encompassing any sphere of the Atlassian Marketplace.

Here we have compiled a report on the top ten apps by absolute and percentage growth for both Jira and Confluence. The absolute growth tables provide as good indication as to which big players in the marketplace are really pushing forward and establishing themselves as true leaders in their respective categories. Meanwhile, by seeing which apps are growing significantly in percentage terms some rapidly growing smaller apps come to light–perhaps some hidden gems that you may not have encountered before.

In this analysis we have restricted ourselves to observing paid apps with over 500 instances. The 500 instance threshold is important to us at Blended Perspectives as it represents the boundary at which we start carefully categorizing apps, i.e. our 500 Club. The 500 Club is important as apps with over 500 instances, despite making up only 15% of all apps, make up 83% of marketplace instances.
