Many organisations in the world among them a number of our clients are heavily relying on the use of Atlassian Confluence as well as Microsoft SharePoint to build a powerful digital workplace and provide reliably enterprise collaboration and documentation services. The SharePoint Connector was initially developed by Atlassian Inc., a leading provider of team collaboration and productivity software, in order to provide a seamless integration between these systems so that end users can benefit from the best of both platforms.
As of August 15th, 2016, Communardo has taken over the ownership of the SharePoint Connector for Confluence from Atlassian. "We are very proud and honored to have the opportunity to help shape the future of this important software bridge for customers," says Dirk Röhrborn, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Communardo.
"We are thrilled that our investment in Sharepoint Connector will continue to grow under the leadership of Communardo. Their long history of success in our Marketplace, coupled with their technical capability, customer reach and expertise, ensures users will continue to get increased value and functionality from the add-on," says Wendell Keuneman, Head of Confluence at Atlassian.
Together with our partners from Atlassian our teams will ensure a smooth transition for all clients. Based on our strong development expertise in both technologies - Atlassian Confluence and Microsoft SharePoint - we are devoted to the future development of the SharePoint Connector.
Communardo will take care of the maintenance and feature development of the add-on as well as the support for all existing and new clients. If you have any questions regarding the transfer please refer to our FAQ or contact our support center. In addition to comprehensive consulting and technical integration, we also offer the corresponding SharePoint licenses, including licensing and support.
Next steps on our development roadmap are ensuring compatibility of the add-on with Atlassian Confluence 6.0 and Microsoft SharePoint 2016. Furthermore, we will reach out to existing clients to learn about their needs and future plans for the Confluence and SharePoint systems. Our engineering & support team is keen on making the SharePoint Connector for Confluence even better!
