Cloud Stocks: Atlassian Expands Beyond IT Teams To Enterprise-Wide Offerings

According to a Mordor Intelligence report, the enterprise collaboration market was estimated at $36.24 billion in 2020. It is expected to grow at over 10% CAGR over the next few years accelerated by the adoption of cloud-based technologies as a result of the work-from-home conditions propelled by the current pandemic. Atlassian (Nasdaq: TEAM) is looking to expand in this market through product release and acquisitions.

Atlassian’s Financials

During the quarter, Atlassian added a record number of 12,815 net new customers, up 105%. The significant growth in customer metrics is indicative of the positive impact the Cloud-first focus and free tier have had on its market expansion. Its total customer base increased 19% to 204,290. Including the single-use Trello customers, it has almost 213,000 customers, up 24%.

Atlassian has not shared details on its marketplace revenues, but the above forecast reflects the impact of the lower take rates from its developer platform. Last year, Atlassian reduced the rates on app sales from 15% to 5% to promote more development for the cloud portfolio. The 95% revenue share split is among the most generous in the industry and is inspired by Atlassian’s belief in the platform ecosystem.
