Atlassian Announces Confluence 1.0 – The Professional Wiki

Today, Atlassian Software Systems announced the release of their latest product: Confluence 1.0. Confluence, the professional J2EE wiki, is a knowledge management tool designed to make it as easy as possible for a team to share information with each other, and with the world. Confluence's simple but powerful editing and site management features help sharing information, collaborating on documents and brainstorming ideas, all from a single web-based location.

Wiki technology, established by Ward Cunningham in 1995, has been gaining traction in the market place due to the growing interest in knowledge management and collaboration and of course the ‘network effect’. Confluence builds on these foundations, making it easy to create, edit, link, search and organise pages using an easy-to-learn notation. Confluence takes the concept further by adding sophistication and professional qualities customers now come to expect from Atlassian software. Further indeed, recently a customer was quoted as saying: "I hate wikis, but I love Confluence".

Speaking of Confluence’s development, Mike Cannon-Brookes (Atlassian’s CEO and co-founder) said, "Our aim was to build an application that was built to the requirements of an enterprise knowledge management system, without losing the essential, powerful simplicity of the wiki in the process."

Each Confluence site is divided into discrete spaces. Within each space, users can create, edit and link pages using an easy-to-learn notation. Powerful editing features such as intelligent page renaming and page hierarchies make it simple to maintain and organise the content. Full text searching across all content and attachments (including Word and PDF files) allows information to be looked up rapidly. As the site grows, users can track changes as they occur, either through the site, with an RSS newsreader, or be notified by email of each change.

Confluence adds professional features rarely seen in wiki software (and especially not all in the same wiki package): flexible privilege-based security management, blogging, automated refactoring, exporting pages or entire spaces to HTML or PDF, a comprehensive remote API, easy “unpack and run” installation; all wrapped up in Atlassian’s “Legendary Service”.

Talk to anyone trying to introduce knowledge management applications into organisations and you will quickly understand the difficulties involved in obtaining buy-in and participation from the organisation. Confluence is a major step-forward in breaking down this barrier, making knowledge management, perhaps for the first time, truly practical.
