NCR, a federal government technology vendor, wanted an assessment of how a crucial project team was utilizing Atlassian tools; including Jira, Confluence, Bamboo, FishEye, and Crucible. The firm also needed to identify and remediate security risks with its infrastructure. Modus Create consultants worked together with NCR to address outstanding security issues and update the Atlassian tool suite to its latest version. Our team also created an infrastructure for NCR’s new Agile process and coached them in scaling it.

Atlassian Portfolio and Security Audits
NCR was in the middle of a massive Agile transformation and wanted Modus Create to align the technical requirements of their applications with the newly implemented Agile practices. To support future growth, they also needed to educate their team in best practices and create documentation for using Atlassian. Additionally, NCR’s versions of Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket Data Center on AWS were outdated; opening the company to security risks.
Our Atlassian experts conducted onsite and remote interviews to assess the use, desired outcomes, and hurdles with Atlassian tools and related business processes. NCR’s team was interested in embracing the Atlassian tools but cited training and time as the biggest hurdles to adoption.
Simultaneously, the team performed an extensive security audit to ensure that the client was following best practices and escalating real-time security risks. Based on the findings of that extensive assessment, our consultants shared actionable recommendations with leadership.
From Atlassian Users to Masters
NCR received a roadmap to encourage the adoption of Atlassian tools, standardize processes, and increase security. The roadmap contained recommendations for the short, medium, and long-term. It also included best practices and guidelines for:
- Tool configuration
- Consistency across projects and spaces
- Upgrade paths for expired licenses
- Mitigating security risks
- Support options
- Business process improvements
- Training for both basic and advanced users
NCR is now running the latest enterprise version of the Atlassian suite and enjoying its benefits such as increased speed and security. And, more effective use of Atlassian products now reinforces remote PI planning sessions and other business routines.
