2007. Al Gore won the Nobel Peace prize. Steve Jobs announced the release of the first iPhone. AC Milan defeated Liverpool to lift the UEFA Champion's Cup. And, in a small cubicle just outside of Vancouver BC, Roberto Dominguez coded what would become Comalatech's flagship add-on for Atlassian's Confluence - Comala Workflows. Of course, things were different back then; the product was called "Approvals Workflow Plug-in", Confluence was known as the "Instant Enterprise Wiki", and to most people "the cloud" was just something that could ruin a picnic.
We enhance the Atlassian platform with amazing add-ons that help you manage workflows, contribute content, visualize ideas and collaborate better.
Manage, review and approve your Confluence pages

The name ‘Comalatech’ was inspired by the Roberto’s favourite book, Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo. It tells the story of a young man who visits the town of Comala, a literal ghost town populated by the spectres of long-dead residents. Being a fan of depressing books (see his bio above), Roberto fell in love with Rulfo’s words, and decided to name his company after the book’s mysterious setting. It’s a little different, sure, but it’s a lot of fun, and guaranteed original. After all, how many other Atlassian add-on providers would put skulls on their swag?
