Also helping companies remain agile and responsive, are companies like Atlassian who this week increased the number of tools it offers for free. Organizations can now freely access cloud-based versions of Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core to help communication across an increased number of remote work employees.
