This is a guest blog post by Justin Witz, CTO and project manager at PlanTools.
As a CTO and project manager of a remote team, I am particularly sensitive to issues that cause project failures. For my company, PlanTools, failed projects can mean lost profits, dissatisfied customers, reputation damage, lost opportunity for future engagements, and failure to secure a reputable referral source. While project management always has challenges, the particular obstacles of doing so with a remote team are unique.
If you’re a systems administrators or application admin, you probably spend much of your day in the command line interfacing with version control systems, initiating infrastructure jobs, and monitoring (allthethings). You probably also spend your day in HipChat communicating with your team. The new Puppet Enterprise for HipChat integration bridges the gap between conversation and action so you can run operations within chat, initiating a ChatOps collaboration model.
The cloud is a large, infinite place. Or so it may seem. With the new TOPDOX integration, the cloud feels accessible from chat in the simplest way.
TOPDOX connects cloud services Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive to HipChat. Rather than searching each cloud service individually to share or find a file, this integration consolidates the search process right inside of HipChat.
It’s the age-old lesson, and it continues in HipChat. Do good, and good will come to you. Karma Bot makes sure this is so.
Karma Bot enhances camaraderie and teamwork in any HipChat room by giving your team a fun, easy way to celebrate and encourage teammates. Using this bot, you’ll be able to give (and take away) karma points to teammates in your HipChat rooms, and this wise bot will keep tally.

Designers, marketers, engineers, and meme-lovers alike will fawn over the new Adobe Image Editor in HipChat. Instead of uploading and downloading images all day, you can now edit and create beautiful images right inside of HipChat using the power of Adobe. And that is some serious muscle.
If you’re a HipChat newbie, welcome! We’re super (content) to have you aboard. HipChat is easy to use and set up, so don’t worry about reading tons of boring instructions. Just do these three steps, and you’ll be smooth sailing.
Engineering, Operations, Support, Marketing, and Business teams – There is no other tool that lets you do as much inside of chat as HipChat.
Six months ago at Atlassian Summit, we introduced our new integrations platform powered by HipChat Connect, allowing developers to build apps that run inside of chat. Today we’re thrilled to see over 35 new integrations in the HipChat marketplace that let you do more inside of chat than any other tool.
