War on it
War on IT

  • At some point, we had 3 IT administrators and ~20 servers

  • That was way too much

  • We declared a war on IT – no more servers

  • We migrated:

    • E-Mail/Calendars to Google Apps

    • VCS/Issues/Wiki to JIRA Studio

    • Production servers to Amazon

  • And we’re doing great!

Dark side
Dark Side


    • Doesn’t mean that it’s perfect though. Nobody is.

  • Things that may become problems:

    • VCS: Subversion is the only choice, right now

    • VCS: Forces certain structure of repository, may not be compatible with existing structure

    • Google Docs Integration: Great idea, but needs improvement

    • In general, JIRA Studio is updated few months after standalone versions. For geeks it’s pretty tough.

    • Plug-ins installation has to be performed by Atlassian support (which is very responsive, by the way)
