It’s been a while since we covered planning but it was one of our most successful webinars. So we’re gonna give you an update.
There have been a lot of developments in the category. The most notable being Jira Work Management. We will be doing a comprehensive review of JWM and it’s role vs. 3rd party planning apps. We have some interesting conclusions which suggest a powerful combination of both JWM and heavy-weight planning apps is the best strategy. We will also cover the latest developments in Jira Align.

Watch our previous webinars:
Webinar highlights: Traditional planning is making a comeback in Jira – growth in the last year is well beyond pure Agile – long live the Gantt! Simple Calendar planning and checklists are increasingly popular. The main players – SoftwarePlant, Tempo and Atlassian – own close to 50% of the market between them.
Our recent webinar was on Issue Cross-Referencing Apps. There are many reasons to link issues, and many ways to do so. Furthermore, issue-linking provides the foundational capability for many of our solution blueprints, from PPM to GRC and beyond. In this webinar recap we’ll go over all of the main points from the webinar such as the key use-cases for linking issues, third-party apps that provide this functionality, data catalogues, asset records in Jira, requests from Service Management, and the power and limitations of object graphing.
Watch this webinar about the increasingly popular Atlasssin Marketplace category – Diagramming – (the fourth largest by total instances) we will identify the major players, market size, main use cases and savings you can make by moving all your diagrams to Confluence.
Watch this webinar as we provide a context for assessing testing apps, identifying the relevant ones for discussion, analyzing their strengths and weaknesses.
As a development team scales up, Jira’s default ticket hierarchy (epic/story/sub-task) can lead to a project visibility problem: You can’t see the forest for the trees. Watch this webinar to learn how BlueCat visualizes their work, and tames scale and complexity.
[Webinar] Atlassian Integrations: A Practical Demo with yasoon’s Microsoft 365 for Jira – Feb 10, 2022
Integrations are the largest market segment in the Atlassian Marketplace and grew by an impressive 30% over 2021.
Using our MARS™ database of 3rd party applications we’ll delve into where this growth is coming from, which tools users are choosing to integrate to (and which they’re not), and why effective integration between Atlassian and other products is more important than ever.
Who are the movers and shakers, a special segment on Appfire, and the implications for customers and vendors? This webinar will cover all major categories of the marketplace including category leaders, analysis of free vs. paid, the most interesting use cases. We will be highlighting fast-moving categories and apps which will help organizations understand better how best to leverage their Atlassian investment.
This webinar will cover all the essentials of what makes a world-class PPM in terms of processes and tools. By architecting Jira and Confluence with a range of additional apps we can show how real-time consolidated reporting can be achieved reducing integration costs and complexity, huge savings in PM administrative time, improving tactical team performance and a range of other benefits.
At Blended Perspectives, we’re keen to share our extensive knowledge on all things Atlassian through our webinars and we’re very happy that so many of you choose to join us both live and on-demand. However, we also recognize that in the busy work day many would be viewers struggle to find an hour to set aside. Therefore, from now on all of our webinars will be accompanied by a brief summary that covers all of the key points so no one has to miss out.
Our recent webinar was on “Planning! Planning! Planning!”. Planning is a hugely significant category and we thought that it was about time for a recap, especially with recent developments–in particular Jira Work Management. Here’s our summary of all of the main points from the webinar:
