Atlassian helps enterprises get Git

Launches 'Atlassian Git Essentials'

Atlassian has taken the wraps off a new Git-based product bundle designed for enterprises. 'Atlassian Git Essentials' bundles the company's issue tracking system, JIRA, planning tool JIRA Agile, CI tool Bamboo and Atlassian's on-premise and cloud-based source code management tools, Stash and Bitbucket.

The out-of-the-box integration of Git and JIRA means that the latter can act as a single source of truth for issues. "The JIRA development panel offers a detailed view of assigned tasks, ability to manage tasks and permissions, and insights into code under development and being tested. Team leads can easily see when builds fail, or when changes have not been merged, and make decisions accordingly," a statement from the company said.

The package is already being used by Boeing, Cisco Systems, LG Electronics, Planatir, Rakuten, Southwest Airlines, Starz Entertainment and Volkswagen, a statement from Atlassian said.

"We’ve taken away many of the headaches that prevent development teams from getting software to their customers quickly," said Eric Wittman, Atlassian’s general manager of the developer tools business unit.

"Our goal is to optimize software development so that developers can spend their time writing awesome code and managers have critical insights needed to ensure on-time delivery."

Atlassian is offering a 30-day free trial of Atlassian Git Essentials; on-premise licences start at $40 for 10 users. Atlassian's hosted offering starts at $40 a month for 10 users.
