The Austrian project management world is somewhat special, when compared to the rest of the world. We got it during Jira and Confluence Solutions Day 2018 in Vienna. Celix Solutions GmbH upgraded its event spot this year, so there was plenty of space for Atlassian vendors.

How special is the Austrian market?

As we talked to Thomas Rieder, Leader of Software Engineers Team, we found the Austrian project management market quite special, or unique:

  • 95% of celix customers use Jira Server and only 5% – Jira Cloud.
  • Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) gained more popularity in Austria than SAFe®.
  • Team-Centric View on Resource Grid in BigPicture, especially combined with Cross-Program View was welcomed, as celix customers have many cross-program teams.
  • In Austria few people use Tempo Teams, as the Austrian law forbids co-workers to know each others’ working hours and tasks, and unfortunately Tempo Teams make this piece of information available to team members. Nevertheless, Tempo Timesheets is very popular.
