Akamai's describes the Atlassian implementation journey with governance, Service Desk, and Business Intelligence.

JIRA and Confluence often require governance. With a powerful tool like JIRA and Confluence, it's easy for departments to define their own rules. With adequate governance, JIRA and Confluence can be used to provide a unified, well-running, well-coordinated, organization-wide system. By providing a standardized approach to management, JIRA and Confluence can help provide the best, most effective and efficient, organizational structure.   

After the presentations, we'll have food, drinks, prizes, giveaways, and Virtual Reality entertainment!
