Atlassian has announced a partnership with Hypothesis, the web annotation solution from Anno, to integrate it into their Confluence Cloud product. This move aims to enhance team collaboration worldwide by bringing team conversations to web pages, PDFs, ebooks, and web apps.
With Hypothesis, employees can add comments and tag their teammates across different types of content, such as websites, blogs, and research articles. The annotations are automatically consolidated and organized in Confluence, making them searchable for easy reference.
According to Dan Whaley, CEO of Hypothesis, this partnership introduces a new era where real-time collaboration is possible anywhere in the browser.
“This partnership introduces a new era where real-time collaboration is possible anywhere you’re working in your browser. Now, teams can work differently, but stay together across more types of content,” added the executive.
Hypothesis was created by Anno, a Public Benefit Corporation, and Atlassian is known for its products such as Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Bitbucket, and Trello, among others. The company has more than 8,000 employees.
The integration of Hypothesis into Confluence Cloud will allow for better remote collaboration, particularly for companies with remote teams or for those with employees working from home. With the pandemic forcing more companies to adopt remote work, this move by Atlassian is timely and relevant.
Hypothesis is a powerful tool that allows for real-time collaboration, even across different types of content. By consolidating and organizing annotations in Confluence, employees can easily access the comments and feedback from their colleagues, regardless of their location. This feature will undoubtedly improve productivity and streamline workflows.
Atlassian has always been at the forefront of innovation in team collaboration, and this partnership with Hypothesis only reinforces its commitment to enhancing the way teams work together. With the integration of Hypothesis into Confluence Cloud, Atlassian is poised to change the way remote teams collaborate, making it more efficient and effective than ever before.
