For Immediate Release

Austin, TX  

7/9/2014

In early June, Praecipio Consulting's Christopher Pepe and Isaac Montes boarded a plane to Berlin, Germany for AtlasCamp 2014. One of only five U.S. companies invited by Atlassian, Praecipio Consulting received the first pre-release training to implement and support the revolutionary new Enterprise offering, Data Center. This cutting-edge product, Atlassian's most ambitious to-date, offers scalability, clustering and failover to high-usage, high-performing Enterprise companies. Over the course of AtlasCamp, Praecipio Consulting was downloaded on the unique benefits of the high-availability platform and immediately began planning to provide customers the first, and best, service for the product. "We're excited to have a more robust solution to help large enterprises scale their collaborative and software development tools." says Praecipio Consulting partner Christopher Pepe.

Offered to Enterprise customers, Data Center utilizes a system of clustered nodes with load balancing and failover capabilities to run processes for the largest of companies with the greatest demand for scalability. Boasting the most minimal downtime possible, Data Center allows for company evolution as teams grow as resource requirements increase and reliability needs become more critical. With JIRA and Confluence compatibilities, this platform maximizes processes by intuitively managing limitless functions for faster, smarter processes that drive down costs. The release of Data Center typifies Atlassian's commitment to developing tools for Enterprise clients and allows Praecipio Consulting to continue bringing best of breed practices for the world's largest companies.

Following the release of Data Center, Praecipio Consulting is first out of the gate in developing resources and training for the new offering. Our upcoming webinar, "Atlassian in the Enterprise" on July 17th with Praecipio Consulting partner Christopher Pepe, highlights the beautiful functionality of Data Center and provides a first glimpse at Atlassian's biggest product of 2014. In addition, Praecipio Consulting now offers Data Center compatibility analysis, recommendations and implementations for Enterprise companies interested in Data Center. "Given our large Enterprise client base, we're excited to bring these enterprise-scale solutions to our clients and further round out our services offering" says Praecipio Consulting founder and partner, Christian Lane. Data Center is a landmark step for Atlassian, and Praecipio Consulting is committed to providing the most knowledgable, current, cutting-edge support and innovations for Enterprise clients.

Whether we're finding new, innovative ways to bring the Atlassian suite to clients or challenging ourselves to live our healthiest lifestyle, Praecipio Consulting strives daily for good practices in all spheres of life. Our experts believe in pursuing greatness not only in technology service and support, but in our daily lives- from staying in great shape to having great times together. We're a curious and competitive bunch, which makes us leading Atlassian Platinum and Enterprise experts; it's also why you'll find amongst our team an assortment of outdoors-loving, musically-inclined, organic & sustainable cooking folks with a penchant for craft beer (We'll let Dave continue to believe Coors is a craft beer.) Praecipio Consulting understands that a happy, healthy team gives us a competitive edge, which is why we invest in our experts- mind, body and soul!

MIND

Praecipio Consulting's international reputation as a top Atlassian expert service provider is founded upon the collective experience, knowledge and innovative insight of our team. Enjoying an open work environment, both in our home office and through collaborative, transparent products like Confluence and JIRA, our experts share visibility of information, allowing us to engage in discussion and dialogue that capitalizes on our various areas of expertise to provide the best solutions. Praecipio Consulting experts regularly weigh-in on projects, training and other issues to deliver the highest quality results to our clients every time. "This is the first job that's pushes me to be better," says Praecipio Consulting expert Hernan Montes. "I love being challenged to reach my fullest potential." Praecipio Consulting experts don't just provide great solutions to clients; they flex their technology prowess in Atlassian internal competitions and challenges such as the Tour de Confluence Questions (which our Charles Wells dominated!) and Atlassian's Dragon Slayer challenge.

With twice weekly company "stand-up" meetings, our expert team shares their current projects and blockers to leverage our collective expert knowledge for the most thoughtful and efficient solutions to clients' most difficult issues. Beyond technology practices, Praecipio Consulting experts' outside interests keep their minds expanding. "We have a multi-lingual office, so you end up expanding your vocabulary without trying." says Marketing & Sales' Erin Davis. "Any given day, you might hear Spanish, French, German or Thai." Our experts love to learn and develop their creative abilities, from developing custom add-ons for clients to staying well read and informed in their downtime.

BODY

Praecipio Consulting experts are an active bunch! When we're not rising to meet technology challenges, we're setting goals and making time to keep at our personal best. Each team member is provided a wireless bracelet that tracks and shares your daily activities, from how many steps you take to how long you sleep, allowing us to set internal goals and cheer each other on. "You won't meet a better team of people working to help each other improve professionally and personally." says solutions architect Brian Nye.

With our home office in scenic Austin, Texas, our team capitalizes on the many outdoor amenities the city has to offer. Our weekly "Board Meetings" get our experts wakeboarding on the lake. The Praecipio Consulting team can often be found swimming at Barton Springs, hiking Enchanted Rock or joining a pick-up game of soccer at Zilker Park. When it comes to team get-aways, our company retreats allow for activity interspersed with productivity. We look forward to these opportunities to spend time together outside of the office- dreaming up some of our best plans whether in the mountains or on a ranch.

SOUL

18th century poet Sir Thomas Moore once wrote "finding the right work... is like finding your soul in the world." At Praecipio Consulting, our souls find joy in our daily work through helping our clients achieve greatness- but it doesn't stop there! Our work environment considers our team's comfort and enjoyment. After all, who wants to work someplace they don't enjoy being? In between projects, Praecipio Consulting experts share downtime lounging in oversized bean bag chairs, or strumming on one of the guitars we keep on hand. (After all, Austin is the Live Music Capitol of the World!) Need a break from your desk? Try working away in our extra-large hammock (though if it lulls you to sleep, you will dream of JIRA workflows). If we haven't mentioned it already, we enjoy a good beer. Carrying on the Atlassian tradition, Friday afternoon is Happy Hour at Praecipio Consulting- a great way to celebrate the week's successes and start making plans with co-workers for the weekend ahead. Yes, our team truly enjoys spending time together- even outside of work! "We're more than just a company- we're a family," says business development's Shayla Sander. Office manager and human resources' Robyn Lane concurs, "It's like working with your favorite brothers and sisters!"
