If you could use an assist, we’re here to help, with comprehensive guides, detailed how-tos, advice from industry experts, and more. All the content in The Hub, by Appfire, is engineered to help you make work flow, so you can get more done in less time.

This month we’ve got a Q&A with Appfire experts on the Atlassian Server end of life (and what it means for you), a free migration checklist, tips for measuring progress toward sprint goals, and more.

IT service management is evolving quickly, and organizations are investing heavily in this critical function. But what exactly is changing and what impact do these changes have on IT teams? How do things like a distributed workforce, tech layoffs, migration to cloud, and security concerns factor into priorities, investments, and decision-making for IT leaders like you?
