Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"With respect to our experiences with Confluence, we haven't had any issues.""It's extremely intuitive.""The most valuable features are the ease of creating documentation, as well as charts.""The integration's very good. You still have integration with lots of third party products, and it's very good.""There is a good library of templates for a wide range of needs.""What I like the most is the Wiki software that comes with Atlassian Confluence.""It integrates well with other Atlassian products""It is just the fact that it is a one-stop shop for all project documentation. It is compared to storing things in files and directories and stuff like that. It provides the overall usability and accessibility of many projects and documents in one area."

More Atlassian Confluence Pros »

"This solution has automated protection from downtime. High-availability is built into every component, and the backups are completely automated.""We have really high level of services, performance, availability, and it is stable. Everything works together really well."

More Oracle Beehive Pros »

"The product should have a workflow with approvals out-of-the-box.""Atlassian should rethink its withdrawal of the self-hosted version of the product. They only offer cloud-based service or the "datacenter-edition", which is quite expensive for small companies and private users.""It would be interesting if they had graphical templates that allowed typical agile ceremonies to be documented better.""I would like to see integration with Slack.""The UI is good but bland. It could be updated a bit to make it more modern and interesting to look at.""Some aspects of the drawing perspective could be improved. When we upgrade a design and make technical architecture drawings to publish, we still use Visio first and then copy and paste it. If this feature were available on Confluence, it would be a useful tool.""Space maintenance could be made a little more user-friendly.""It would be good if they can continue working towards making documentation and editing as quick and easy as possible. It has got a lot of capability, but I don't know how to use it. I don't find some of the things that intuitive. Sometimes, it doesn't seem obvious to me how to use it, but it is like learning any new tool. You actually need to get trained on the tool to get maximum out of it."
