Atlassian launches Bitbucket Pipelines

Door to new opportunityAtlassian has announced a number of new developments within its team collaboration software portfolio, including the launch of Bitbucket Pipelines platform.

The new platform extends its cloud-based Bitbucket code repository to provide teams with entire continuous delivery workflows from source to deployment in the cloud. The team claim the new proposition helps developers who are struggling to apply on-premises continuous integration and delivery tools as software development and production applications are shifting into the cloud.

“Atlassian is helping teams across all industries do amazing things. We’re helping developers at Cochlear build aural implants to help people hear, The Telegraph to inform millions of readers each day, and Lufthansa Systems to provide IT services for everything from aviation safety to entertainment,” said Sri Viswanath, CTO, Atlassian. “The common thread between these teams and your own is the need to work smarter and faster. We’re seeing more and more of these teams choosing to collaborate in the cloud. In fact, over half of our customers choose to collaborate in the cloud and an even higher number of new customers select our cloud offerings.”

Elsewhere, the team also launched a native mobile platform to increase connectivity between departments who are using the Confluence and JIRA tools, building on the enterprise mobility trends, as well opening up its JIRA Service Desk product, to developers to build add-ons that create and update requests or extend JIRA Service Desk’s automation capabilities to react to changes in requests.

The company has also joined the Open API Initiative and replace the company’s existing API documentation, using a custom site generator, RADAR and it has released this software as open source to be used by any Open API provider.

“Collectively, we have a lot to gain from an open, widely accepted definition language for REST APIs,” said Viswanath. “We’re committed to actively contributing to the standard and are now a member of the Open API Initiative and the Linux Foundation, alongside industry leaders like Google, Microsoft, PayPal and others.”
