Old Street Solutions is a Global Platinum Atlassian Marketplace Vendor that makes software designed to simplify and demystify Atlassian’s powerful tools.
The most challenging thing from the start was to create a platform for Custom Charts for Jira and Confluence that would simplify development deployment and maintenance on server cloud and data center platforms.
Creating a generic front-end to work in all of these environments with minimum effort, which harnesses the benefits of each environment seemed a difficult challenge.
They also needed a lightweight cost-effective infrastructure capable of scaling up to handle huge loads of data requests.
Old Street Solutions had heard good reviews about Hotovo from several people in the Atlassian ecosystem. The right moment came after market research showed the demand for a reporting product with great UX. Various parameters fell in place and the two companies started their journey.
3 years of collaboration between OSS & Hotovo
Hotovo was responsible for developing a Confluence server and cloud MVP version to demonstrate that we are capable of delivering the add-on with the required functionality, built on a generic platform.
After a successful demonstration of the MVP, we started working on a Jira application, and we’ve continued to develop it ever since.
The development did not finish yet as we still work on new features which make the add-on even better.
Many new ideas have been discussed during our time together, including some outside of the Atlassian space. When we spot a product-market fit that can capture the stellar results mentioned above, these ideas will be explored. Hotovo is ready with all the skills and knowledge required to fulfill these needs. The future looks bright.
