Will Watchtower Go Beyond Atlassian? Results of Web Summit 2018

For eight years Web Summit gained the reputation of the largest technology marketplace and conference in Europe. In 2018 Web Summit hosted about 70,000 attendees, speakers, startups, and investors from 159 countries in Lisbon, Portugal. Four Pavilions of the exhibition and Altice Arena with 20,000 of people capacity as the main stage remind an ant hill.

This year Rozdoum participated as a Beta Startup. The company brought the project manager’s pain saving solutions. The core one was WatchTower — one agile board for multiple Jiras aimed to consolidate data and reduce switching between several remote instances. And Requirements Clarity Map for Confluence which visualizes the uncertainty of product requirements and builds a mind-map of the scope, highlighting the risky points.

The company’s expectations for the event comprise the validation of the idea of WatchTower development, networking, and promotion of Rozdoum as an Atlassian services provider.

With Watchtower Rozdoum wanted to check whether it could become one agile board for multiple project management tools and consolidate data from different systems, like Basecamp, Asana, Redmine, and Trello. For further development of WatchTower beyond the Atlassian ecosystem, Rozdoum requires investments, so Web Summit was a chance to enlarge our network of angels and venture capital companies.

Comparing to the previous Web Summit, when Rozdoum presented as an Alpha Startup with WatchTower as an MVP, this year the company gained more acknowledgment as a company itself, and there was more audience recognizing Atlassian as an industry solution for enterprise-level process management.

Rozdoum team believes in long-term aftereffects and connections. It is hard for the company to evaluate the outcome from the event up to the moment. Rozdoum proved a need in WatchTower as a consolidation board for different project management tools. And the team looks into the future with enthusiasm and proceed with the development of some more pain-relieving software.
