Atlassian acquires enterprise agile planning platform AgileCraft

Atlassian, provider of collaboration and productivity tools, announced it will acquire AgileCraft, a provider of enterprise agile planning software. AgileCraft helps enterprise organizations build and manage a ‘master plan’ of their most strategic projects and workstreams. The acquisition of AgileCraft will allow Atlassian to connect the work of its productivity tools, such as Jira to customers’ outcomes of the entire enterprise and is expected to add approximately $1-2 million to Atlassian’s revenue.

From the release: “We know loads of time is wasted collecting status updates across hundreds of agile teams, getting unstructured snapshots of capacity, and trying to measure value generation. These challenges require a different set of tools – ones that give leaders critical visibility and allow them to adapt in a timely way,” wrote Scott Farquhar, co-founder and co-CEO of Atlassian. “We’ve heard from our enterprise customers that these problems are really hard to tackle – and they need our help along the way. That’s why we’re excited to share we’ve entered into an agreement to acquire AgileCraft, a leader in enabling scaled agile transformations. Many Atlassian customers, including AT&T, Anthem, NCR, TIAA, and Duke Energy trust AgileCraft to scale their teams’ agile practices.”

BlueVenn launches new CDP Unify

BlueVenn has launched Unify, a Customer Data Platform with a focus on data loading and tools for non-technical users to automate the ingestion and transformation of data into the platform. The data management of Unify was previously only available as part of BlueVenn’s complete customer analytics and campaign management solution, but has now been decoupled from the complete solution and available as a plug and play platform that organizations can purchase on its own.

From the release: “BlueVenn Unify enables the marketing team to connect to infinite data sources, real-time or batch, and automate the deduplication, cleansing and consolidation of their data. It scales from hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of customer records, and as new data sources or channels become available, adding them is a simple process for the marketing team to load and link them into Unify. Marketers are stifled in their ability to work with data effectively and it leads to inaccurate insights, untargeted marketing and too much time manually wrestling with their data day-by-day,” Steve Klin, BlueVenn’s CEO said. “Unify will be transformational for these businesses!“
