St. Louis, MO, USA (PRWEB) August 19, 2005
Contegix has today announced a strategic alliance with Atlassian Software Systems, to offer enterprise hosting for AtlassianÂs award winning issue tracking application, JIRA and their enterprise wiki application, Confluence. Propelled by growing customer demand for managed solutions, Atlassian partnered with Contegix to offer turnkey solutions for both JIRA and Confluence.
Atlassian has carved a unique name for itself in the field of enterprise software solutions with a client list of over 2,500 customers across more than 50 countries. JIRA has established a reputation as the defacto issue and bug tracking application for software projects, and Confluence, with the recent gain of its 500th customer, is arguably the worldÂs most widely deployed commercial wiki.
With its Beyond Managed HostingÂ service, Contegix offers its clients a comprehensive management of both JIRA and Confluence on a simple, monthly-fee plan. The solution includes comprehensive managed services that range from setting up the server hardware, installing the operating system, deploying the software in an optimal configuration, to managing licensing, maintenance renewals and wide ranging support.
Managed solutions are viable options for companies for various reasons; smaller organizations lack sufficient in-house IT support and infrastructure, whilst larger organizations prefer to focus on their core business by outsourcing non-core functions. Many companies are drawn to managed solutions for their reduced up-front cost. It is little wonder that Contegix boasts an ever-growing list of clients, including many prominent Java companies, not to mention Atlassian itself.
ÂCompanies typically make significant investments deploying and maintaining enterprise applications such as JIRA and Confluence,Â said Mathew Porter from Contegix. ÂOur managed solutions dramatically reduce the required investment and allow customers to focus on their core business. The simple monthly-fee also helps manage a company's cash flow.Â
With its team of highly qualified engineers, Contegix offers its customers continuous and dedicated support 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Their engineers seek intimate knowledge of the products they host to provide customers with unparalleled service, truly setting Contegix apart from other providers.
Contegix's legendary service was the main driver when forming the alliance between the two companies. Scott Farquhar, an Atlassian company director added, ÂWhen we moved our hosting to Contegix from our previous hosting provider, they blew us away with their proactive service and support. With our old hosting provider, we had to chase them for support. Today, Contegix chase us!Â
Previously, companies seeking a managed solution often had to settle for sub-standard products. For those companies who have been waiting for a managed offering to be able to run the worldÂs best issue tracking and knowledge management applications, AtlassianÂs partnership with Contegix will come as welcome news.
