Gliffy to Support Existing Apps on Atlassian Connect
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Gliffy, Inc., a leader in diagramming and business graphics application,
today announced its intention to support Atlassian
Software's new Atlassian
Connect framework for secure, stable, scaled add-ons to Atlassian JIRA
OnDemand. Gliffy is excited for the potential business opportunities
based on Atlassian's new technology direction and its significance for
With�Atlassian Connect, leaders like Gliffy can now control, develop and
host their own application, while maintaining a tight integration with
the host Atlassian application. This important development allows Gliffy
to leverage the advanced features it has written for other SaaS (News - Alert)
services. Gliffy supports the direction provided by Atlassian Connect
because it will also help the company iterate more quickly and deploy
updates and new features to customers far more frequently.
Marketplace is a tremendous part of our business and we're excited
about the opportunities that Connect will add to this ecosystem,"�said
Han Lee, Product Manager at Gliffy. "We have experience in numerous app
stores and Atlassian Marketplace provides a�strong purchase experience
for our users. Their responsiveness and ability to address business
concerns on the Marketplace model is instrumental to Gliffy's success."
Atlassian Connect will allow Gliffy to capitalize on other third-party
SaaS services, such as Google (News - Alert) Charts, to deliver value by developing new
features at a faster rate for its users. Gliffy recently developed an
initial proof-of-concept of its JIRA plugin, which demonstrates that
migrating its existing Atlassian JIRA OnDemand users to Gliffy's SaaS
infrastructure should be a seamless and efficient process. Gliffy looks
forward to re-architecting its existing diagramming and charting
applications for Atlassian Connect in 2014.
