New Atlassian Marketplace Launches with Easy One-Stop Shopping for Hundreds of Business Solutions

Atlassian, the leading provider of collaboration software for product teams, today announced the immediate availability of Atlassian Marketplace (marketplace.atlassian.com), its one-stop shop where its customers can easily discover, try, buy and manage more than 1,000 free and commercial add-ons and third-party integrations that complement Atlassian products. Atlassian co-Founder and co-CEO Mike Cannon-Brookes will formally introduce Atlassian Marketplace during this morning’s keynote address at Atlassian Summit, the company’s largest user conference, taking place here May 31 - June 1 at the Design Center Concourse.

“The Atlassian Marketplace is like the App Store for our 20,000+ customers,” said Cannon-Brookes. “Now anyone can easily try and buy a new business software solution in minutes without leaving our products or our web store. Whether you're looking for testing apps, CRM integrations, diagramming add-ons or a host of other solutions, Atlassian Marketplace offers the best of the web for software teams.”

Atlassian Marketplace is launching with more than 1,000 free or paid add-ons that complement and extend the functionality of Atlassian’s suite of software products – including JIRA, the industry-leading issues-management system, Confluence, its collaboration software, BitBucket, a web-based source code hosting service, Bamboo, its continuous integration server and the newly-released, Stash, a Git repository management product for enterprise teams. More than 85 percent of Fortune 100 companies use Atlassian products.

“Marketplace offerings in general are a win-win, simplifying discovery and integration for customers, providing developers with an additional channel and broadening the functionality of the underlying platform,” said Stephen O'Grady, Principal Analyst with RedMonk. “Atlassian Marketplace is no exception here, and should be of interest to customers and developers alike.”

A Joy for Customers: Easily Discover, Buy and Manage New Add-ons

The Atlassian Marketplace offers a simpler experience for Atlassian customers to find, try, buy and manage add-ons from thousands of third-parties and individual developers. Benefits include:

  • A simpler way to discover, purchase and manage for-purchase add-ons directly within the Atlassian Marketplace or within an Atlassian product.
  • A seamless experience for ordering, shopping and license management.
  • Social features to rate, review and learn more about add-ons from other users.

A Boon for Third-party Vendors: Leverage the Atlassian Platform

Third-party partners who build businesses on top of the Atlassian platform can now offer and market their software solutions directly to 45,000 of the world's best development teams who are using Atlassian's products to streamline product development. More than 4,000 add-ons are downloaded each day from the Atlassian Marketplace. ALM Works, AppFusions, Balsamiq, K15t, Stepstone Technologies, Tempo and Zephyr are among the companies joining Atlassian at launch to offer their commercial solutions through the Atlassian Marketplace. While the marketplace is home to more than one thousand free add-ons or commercial add-ons sold through third-parties, the benefits to vendors selling commercial products on the Atlassian Marketplace include:

  • Simplified end user license agreement (EULA): establishes minimal EULA terms for third-party add-ons sold through the Marketplace, simplifying the procurement process for vendors and customers.
  • Billing, invoicing and licensing services: includes managing credit card processing, customer invoicing and collections.
  • Consolidated customer renewal processing: Atlassian renewal teams help coordinate customer renewals, and customers can synchronize renewal dates of product and for-purchase add-on licenses.

“When I first heard about Atlassian Marketplace, I knew I needed to join. We participated in the beta program and the results surpassed our expectations – our rate of product evaluations more than quadrupled,” said Darryl Duke, founder of Stepstone Technologies. “Atlassian Marketplace has lifted a huge burden from our shoulders by helping us with the administrative work so we can focus on what we do best – building great products like Zen Foundation. Our customers can now enjoy simple, convenient one-stop shopping for industry-leading business solutions – all based on the high-performing Atlassian platform.”
