Obsidian to showcase collaboration potential at Atlassian-focused African conference

Bookings for the Atlassian in Africa conference from 23 to 24 October at Turbine Hall in Johannesburg is open. Hosted by Obsidian Systems, a South African Atlassian Solution Partner, this is the first time the Australian enterprise software company will be part of an event of this magnitude on the continent.

This two-day event is designed to provide delegates with theoretical insights as well as practical training and certification to equip them with the skills needed to optimise working collaboratively in a digital environment.

The event builds on the recent success of the Atlassian in Europe summit that attracted interest from around the globe. It creates the perfect platform to position the organisation on the continent and gather some of the best minds in the industry to showcase the trends and practical elements of working collaboratively and growing business success.

Day 1 will have world-class international speakers sharing their strategic insights on topics as diverse as overcoming the fear of innovation, digital business models, transformation strategies, as well as several customer journeys showing these components in action.

The second day will be focused on training and certification. There will be a session for non-technical people while other tracks will be geared towards users of Jira, Scrum Masters, and product owners and developers.

“This conference has been designed to be a very different experience to what South African delegates are used to. By gathering some of the leaders in their field to provide unique insights on how to get the most out of teams, this event promises to provide something for all level of user,” says Muggie van Staden, CEO at Obsidian Systems.

Speakers include the likes of Howard Feldman, one of South Africa’s leading entrepreneurs; Grant Finnemore, CEO of GuruHut; Raimonds Simanovskis, founder and core developer at eazyBI; and Tony Grout, Agile and DevOps transformation director at Atlassian.

There are a variety of passes available with some great Early Bird specials. Bookings have opened and are expected to sell fast.
