Review: Successful 4th catworkx Atlassian Symposium Vienna

published Dec 03, 2019 04:00 PM
The fourth catworkx Atlassian Symposium Vienna 2019 (abbr.: CASV2019) took place in the venerable "Haus der Ingenieure" (House of Engineers) in the Palais Eschenbach. The motto of this year's symposium was "Making every business process more transparent, faster and more efficient - using Atlassian tools". In the well-attended ballroom of the building, catworkx customers and experts presented their individual solutions in exciting, top-class talks. The conference program was rounded off by the varied product presentations of the international app developers from the Atlassian Ecosystem.

More and more companies worldwide rely on Atlassian's tools to conduct their processes faster and in a more target-oriented way. How companies can optimize business processes economically was the focus of this year's event. Over 100 participants - more than last year - attended the catworkx Atlassian Symposium 2019 in Vienna. "We are registering an increase in visitor numbers of over ten percent," says Anita Frank, Head of Marketing, catworkx Austria, who is also the organizer and person responsible for this event.

Sightseeing and first networking the day before

catworkx Atlassian Symposium Vienna 2019The mood was already good the day before the catworkx Atlassian Symposium Vienna 2019 - the catworkx team as well as some of the app developers and speakers were taken on a two-hour sightseeing tour through the beautiful city of Vienna. A warming mulled wine helped against the frosty temperatures during the stopover at the Christmas market. Good conversations and hearty food followed with dinner in a traditional tavern.

In the morning: catworkx keynote and concentrated product information

The catworkx Atlassian Symposium Vienna 2019 started with a warm welcome by Alexander Frank, Co-Founder and Managing Director of catworkx GmbH Austria. After a short presentation of the agenda Frank handed over to Oliver Groht, CEO & Co-Founder of catworkx Germany.

Teamworkx intelligently combines services, business solutions and apps in a complete enterprise portfolio within the Atlassian ecosystem. The solutions on display met with great interest among the participants, as the feedback throughout the day showed.

Directly after this keynote, the six international app developers ALM WorksTempoSoftwarePlant , eazyBIRefined and re:solution presented their apps for 20 minutes each. "The spice is in the brevity," said Anita Frank. The lively interest of the audience proved her right.
