Like many of you, ALM Works is experiencing a number of coronavirus-related disruptions to our normal routines. The new normal for ALM Works consists of:
Working from home
Lots of video calls and meetings
Daily standups across all of our teams
Rethinking our customer and partner outreach (normally, heavily dependent upon industry events, like Atlassian Summit).
For ALM Works, the shift to the new normal was not difficult. Nearly everyone here was already used to working from home or on the road from time to time. We want to reassure all of our customers, prospective customers, and partners that as far as you need to be concerned it is business as usual here at ALM Works.
ALM Works temporarily closed its Boston (HQ/Worldwide Business Operations) office on March 16th and our St. Petersburg (Development) office one day later, on March 17th. We asked all employees to work from home until further notice. Despite this change, all business operations of the company continue to function normally.
The company is financially stable and has sufficient cash reserves to help us weather any downturn in our business (should there be one). Moreover, based on previous experience with external market/business disruptions, we remain confident in the resilience of the Atlassian ecosystem.
So far in 2020, Structure Cloud has been fully operational 99.85% of the time. We do not expect our office closures to have any negative impact on this statistic.
Our DevOps team was and remains capable of monitoring and maintaining our Structure Cloud infrastructure 24 x 7 x 365
Our systems run on AWS (Amazon Web Services) — one of the most reliable and stable SaaS platforms in the industry
Our Cloud support team is well-connected and working normally (on the same schedule they were before the decision to temporarily close our offices)
Our Structure Cloud product development team is also working a normal schedule. There will be very minimal impact to our Structure Cloud product roadmap.
