Space, a collaboration and management solution for software development

Space is positioned as an extensible collaboration solution and all-in-one for software development, project management, teams, and communication.

Space is developed by JetBrains and stands out for allowing you to manage all collaboration and development processes. Space aims to unify tools and information within the organization, in order to improve the effectiveness of collaboration between teams and globally throughout the company.

By providing a platform on which team members can communicate, share information and collaborate on projects, Space breaks down silos within organizations.

Whether it's software development, design, administration, or any other type of role, Space enables everyone to improve their productivity and make the most of their potential.

Space includes all the necessary tools to support software development pipelines of any size, including the following:

  • Source Control Hosting (Git).
  • Code review with merge requests and quality criteria.
  • Automation tasks to build and deploy applications.
  • Project management tools: planning checklists, ticket tracking and visual dashboards.
  • Packaging records and containers to publish artifacts.
  • A directory of teams that manages, among other things, the organizational structure of the company, permits, absences and various geographical locations.
  • Communication and information exchange tools such as chats, blogs and documents.
  • Management of meetings, personal agendas and task lists for task management.

And above all, to enable effective collaboration, Space combines these elements with organizational and communication tools. 

By gathering so much data in a single tool, Space offers many possibilities, such as unifying all kinds of notifications into a single flow or reducing interruptions when you are busy and for example avoiding assigning tasks to team members who are absent.

JetBrains believes that the combination of functionality of a complete set of tools in a single application can reduce initial and maintenance costsas well as indirect costs by reducing training requirements, with all teams in the organization using the same solution.

In 2020, JetBrains, like millions of other companies around the world, had to quickly adapt to teleworking. Having a single, integrated environment for teamwork has proven to be a huge advantage in getting it done quickly.

Space was designed to evolve as the organization grows. In addition, the solution works in the form of self-service, which facilitates the start-up, Space adapts to the evolution of your teams and your organization, in order to always be able to satisfy their needs.

JetBrains recognizes that every organization is unique As an extensible platform, Space can support a wide range of workflows and business processes. This creates many opportunities for partners, who can meet the needs of their customers by helping them get the most out of Space. JetBrains has created three partnership programs that cover the main partnership models: a distribution partnership, a service partnership, and a technology partnership.

For this public release, the publisher has focused on supporting workflows for software development teams.

JetBrains plans to support more collaborative workflows for different types of teams, including design, marketing, sales, human resources, and legal. Collaborative work on documents is essential for many teams. Therefore, JetBrains plans to support, among other things, the process of creating and managing specifications, functional requirements, campaigns, roadmaps, legal agreements with formal reviews.

The roadmap for 2021 includes:

  • An on-premises version and migration path from the cloud version to the on-premises version of Space. So you can start testing the cloud version of Space now and seamlessly transition to the local version later.
  • Localization, so that Space speaks your language.
  • Video calls, internally and through integrations with external tools.
  • Improve, adapt and perfect the existing functionalities of Space.
  • Other migration options and integrations, for example, calendars integrated with Google
  • Calendar and Outlook / Office365.
