Unlocking the Atlassian Marketplace with MARS Atlas

By Elizabeth Clor

Your Atlassian tools offer industry-leading flexibility, agility, and collaboration—but does your Atlassian toolstack harness the full potential of the Atlassian Marketplace? 

In our extensive experience working with Atlassian-based organizations, Contegix experts have seen firsthand how the thousands of third-party plug-ins offered through the Atlassian Marketplace can elevate ROI and add new functionality to Atlassian tools. But even if you already use Marketplace apps, you may not be getting everything you can from its offerings. With more than 6,000 applications to choose from, it can be overwhelming to review each app individually and ensure optimal configuration. 

For the past five years, Contegix has been tracking app data in the Marketplace Analytic Research Service (MARS) database. Now, we’re making that data available to the public for the first time, in a new tool called MARS Atlas

MARS Atlas offers an intelligent interface that combines two decades of experience with the Atlassian Marketplace and five years of application and customer adoption data from MARS, which together fuel personalized, AI-powered recommendations. Now IT professionals can access instant analysis on more than 6,000 tools to help them make the right decision for their business.

Powered by app performance and adoption data

MARS Atlas uses AI to combine years of raw data with qualitative recommendations from Contegix experts, together formed into actionable insights to guide decision-makers through the Atlassian Marketplace. When you use the tool, you won’t just gain insight into popularity, usage, growth, pricing trends, and more. You can also see recommended solutions hand-picked by our experts, and explore the database by categories like business type and use case. 

“With MARS Atlas, you won’t just receive data-fueled recommendations,” explains Solomon Gifford, Senior Vice President of Customer Operations at Contegix. “You can tap into the real experience of Contegix experts.”

Alongside each personalized recommendation, MARS Atlas provides a snapshot of relevant data about the application—including how quickly its user base is growing, where the tool ranks among similar solutions, which types of companies it’s best for, recent price changes, technical updates, and more. With this data at their fingertips, IT professionals can immediately see the solutions that are right for their business rather than spending hours or days parsing through thousands of applications. 

A modern interface built on trusted experience

Currently, the AI agent behind MARS Atlas provides tailored, digestible recommendations based on a range of custom inputs. That includes which Atlassian products you already use, hosting type, company size, budget and current company needs. With an easy-to-use interface and comprehensive information, this tool streamlines the app search process. 

We’re also planning to expand MARS Atlas in the coming months to incorporate natural language queries. This will unlock the ability to ask more conversational, nuanced questions of the platform, so you can receive even more sophisticated recommendations.
