O'REILLY WEB 2.0 SUMMIT, SAN FRANCISCO (Business Wire) October 17, 2007—At the O'Reilly Web 2.0 Summit today, Atlassian announced the integration of Microsoft (MSFT) Office SharePoint Server 2007 with Atlassian Confluence, the world's most popular enterprise wiki. Users of SharePoint and Confluence will be able to access and share content across these two popular technologies.
"Both Confluence and SharePoint are popular with our users. Currently the data is separate and people can only collaborate in one or the other," said Geoffrey Corb, IT Director at Johns Hopkins University. "Bridging these can only help the loyal Microsoft users and the committed Confluence users."
The Connector features:
Search: Users can search SharePoint and Confluence content together from one place.
Content sharing: From within SharePoint, users can embed Confluence page contents allowing users to blend content.
Linking: Within Confluence, users can access SharePoint document facilities. Including SharePoint lists and content within Confluence, users can edit Microsoft Office documents in a single click.
Single Sign-On and Security: With one login, users can access both systems while seeing only what they have permission to view.
"Many of our customers have asked us how to get Confluence and SharePoint Server 2007 to work together better," said Atlassian CEO and co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes. "Starting today we can provide them with a complete solution."
"In the enterprise, customers want integration," said Derek Burney, SharePoint General Manager at Microsoft. "This integration further validates our strategy to design SharePoint Server 2007 as a platform for best-of-breed Enterprise 2.0 solutions. By combining the market leading collaboration, social computing and enterprise content management capabilities of SharePoint with the Confluence wiki, customers can now integrate the two products together to achieve their business goals."
The SharePoint Connector for Confluence is available for download now on the Atlassian Web site at
