We use Microsoft Teams as our primary workplace collaboration tool. It enables our team to work remotely and still collaborate on projects - with integration to JIRA and Confluence, the tool enables us to create War Rooms when problems occur and also provides information-sharing capabilities. Replaced HipChat.

We use Trello to manage our tasks, including the backlog, currently active development projects and aspirational work - ie. new ideas. Trello helps us to manage work without being overly process-oriented.

We use Bitbucket because it is the best on-premise code management tool available at the moment and provides us with the security features required - above and beyond GitHub and Bitbucket Cloud.
