Enterprise collaboration solutions provider Atlassian (Nasdaq: TEAM) recently announced its fourth-quarter results that sent the stock soaring 24% in the after-hours trading session. Like others in the industry, Atlassian too is betting on AI to improve its offerings.

Atlassian’s AI Growth

Recently, Atlassian announced its partnership with Accenture, working to help companies achieve enterprise agility. The partnership will combine Atlassian’s collaboration products with Accenture’s global professional services capabilities, allowing customers to transition from project-oriented to product-centric development as well as from on-premise deployments to cloud-based services, thus reducing administrative overhead, identify value streams and implement value stream management solutions, select and prioritize programs to achieve goals, and implement lean portfolio management to connect a strategy to its execution.

Atlassian is investing in generative AI technology and recently announced plans to add AI features to its offerings. For Jira, Atlassian will leverage OpenAI’s GPT-4 large language model to help with tech support inquiries in Slack. For Confluence, users will be able to click on terms they don’t recognize and find explanations, links, and receive automated answers based on information stored in documents. The new features will be available under the brand Atlassian Intelligence and will be released over the next few months. Atlassian has been testing the benefits of the technology internally.

Atlassian’s stock is trading at $184.15 with a market capitalization of $47.3 billion. It touched a 52-week high of $267.58 in August last year and a 52-week low of $113.86 in November last year.
