Samuel Titka

Senior Atlassian Consultant at EEA


Samuel Titka works at EEA, a Slovak software house that is a member of the BiQ Group, as a senior consultant for the integration of Atlassian’s tools Jira and Confluence. In his career, he has been involved in a number of successful deployments in the IT, banking and insurance sectors, as well as industry and rail transport.

Samuel graduated in Applied Computer Science from Comenius University in Bratislava. After that, he was attracted to the world of Atlassian software, in which he has been working professionally for 8 years. He focuses on Jira integration for clients who want to streamline project management―ranging from recruitment processes in HR over test management to release and delivery―as well as processes based on agile transformation needs or project management using various methodologies and frameworks including SAFe.

In addition, he trains, conducts workshops and actively follows the latest trends in these topics. If he’is not spending time consulting with a client, he is likely creating reports from Jira data. He holds the Atlassian Technical Sales Professional accreditation.


Zdenko Matejček

IT Process Manager

Tatra bank

He has been using his extensive experience from industry and services for the seventh year in the IT department of Tatra banka as a process manager. He always tries to assess changes in processes based on data because there is logic in it.

Zdenko is part of a major agile transformation that is understandably impacting many IT processes in the bank.

He always evaluates the success of new processes with hindsight, as only then will the real impacts that were triggered by the changes become apparent. He believes that processes should be as flexible as the market demands.

He is Six Sigma certified.


Implementation of the SAFe methodology in JIRA at Tatra Bank

In 2020, Tatra banka became the best digital bank out of 300 registered banks worldwide. Such a first place can be obtained mainly by making the right decisions when managing such a large company. That is one of the reasons why the bank has been undergoing an agile transformation.

Tatra banka has been working with EEA Atlassian team for a long time. When the requirement came for a tool that supports the SAFe methodology and would be used to keep track of work, for development and planning, then implementing SAFe in Jira was the obvious way to go.

The presentation will be delivered by both the customer and the provider together. They will talk not only about their success, but also about what was in the end different in practice than expected.
