Unleashing Team Potential: Hypothesis and Atlassian’s Partnership Breaks Down Barriers

By Julie Schochet | 18 April, 2023

A Revolutionary Partnership: Atlassian and Hypothesis

We are thrilled to announce a groundbreaking collaboration between Hypothesis, the pioneering web-based open-source annotation platform, and Atlassian, the renowned software company behind popular tools such as Jira, Confluence, and Trello. This strategic partnership promises to revolutionize the way teams collaborate and share knowledge in the digital world.

This new partnership brings teams, content, and communication together anywhere on the web and opens up a new future for team collaboration, no matter what website or app you are using.

What is the problem?

The world of team collaboration and productivity software has seen explosive growth in recent years. But that explosion of apps and tools has come at a cost. To get our work done, we need to work across dozens of apps, websites, and documents daily, and there is nothing to bring it all together, in context with the people and content in one place.

Email and chat have been the solution for part of the problem until now but fail to bring the collaborators and the content together, in context.

Annotation Meets Collaboration

Hypothesis, a service within the public benefit corporation Anno, has been a leader in web annotation for close to 10 years now. With over 50 million annotations and counting, our tool has changed the way students, colleagues, and friends have collaborated and connected over all online content. Partnering with Atlassian, the leader in team collaboration products like Confluence, Jira, and Trello, allows us to integrate our annotation tools within their powerful teamwork platform, turning anything in your browser into a place for secure collaboration with your teams.

This partnership is a game-changer for teams that collaborate inside and outside their company walls. There is no better time for Hypothesis and Atlassian to join forces. The explosive growth of web-based collaboration and SaaS apps has made it more complex/difficult for teams to work together. Through this partnership, Hypothesis and Atlassian will make it easier to work differently, together across anything/apps in your browser.

Better Teamwork, Happier Teams.

In Q3 of 2023, Hypothesis will be integrated with Atlassian’s team collaboration product Confluence. By integrating our annotation tool within Confluence, users can now collaborate effortlessly across the entire web. Using Hypothesis for Confluence enables users to add comments, share content, and have conversations on both Confluence pages as well as any web content, breaking down barriers between team members and fostering a truly collaborative environment.

Teams Unified: All Within One App

In today’s fast-paced, digitally driven world, effective communication is crucial for the success of any team. However, with a multitude of SaaS tools available, teams often struggle with disjointed communication channels and isolated data silos.

With Hypothesis integrated into Confluence, users can collaborate all within one app, streamlining communication and eliminating the confusion or disconnect that can happen when using multiple tools. This powerful integration makes it easier for teams to stay on the same page and work more efficiently together.

Cross-Platform Collaboration Made Easy

As the explosion of SaaS apps and web content continues, users demand better experiences that make it easier for them to work together, regardless of the underlying vendor. The Atlassian Confluence Hypothesis partnership serves as a shining example of the future of collaboration in the SaaS ecosystem. By embracing broad standards and prioritizing interoperability, technology providers can create better experiences for customers no matter what app they are using. The adoption of these standards will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of work, a future where work becomes more open and teamwork becomes easier.

The Hypothesis team will be announcing this new partnership during their work management keynote at the Atlassian Team ‘23 Conference in Las Vegas from April 18-20 to showcase the new integration to collaborators everywhere, and especially Atlassian customers and partners.

We are thrilled to be a part of this innovative partnership, and we can’t wait to see how it will transform the way teams collaborate online.
