Product Details

What is Jira Software?

Jira Software is a software development tool used by agile teams and supports any agile methodology, be it scrum, kanban, or a team's own unique flavor. From agile boards to reports, users can plan, track, and manage agile software development projects from a single tool, helping teams release higher quality software, faster.

And since not every team works the same way, Jira Software allows teams to customize workflows, permissions, and schemes to match the unique needs of each team.

With Jira Software, teams are able to:

  • Track versions, features, and progress at a glance
  • Easily re-prioritize user stories and bugs
  • Estimate stories, adjust sprint scope, check velocity, and re-prioritize issues
  • Estimate, track and report on story points; become more accurate
  • Report on agile metrics to provide real-time, actionable data on team efficiency, quality, and overall performance
  • Integrate with all the tools their dev team is already using, from the rest of the Atlassian suite (Bitbucket, Bamboo, Fisheye, and Crucible) to other popular developer tools on-premise or cloud (e.g., GitHub and Jenkins).
  • Provide greater flexibility to curate which teams have access to which information with sprint and project-level permissions
  • Flexibly tailor Jira tasks and their workflows to a specific team's use case
  • Extend Jira with over 1,800 apps from the Atlassian Marketplace to fit any capability not provided by default

JIRA Review - SL

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Incentivized
We primarily use the Agile methodology that JIRA offers. We started using it all across the board a couple of months back. Initially it was just the project management team that was using it a few months back. The organization made a decision to use it all across the board and now it is being used by all departments. We use it to track all of our projects, timelines etc.
  • Very intuitive tool. Ease of access is the primary reason why I would recommend this tool. Both from a end user's standpoint and administratively
  • Comes with a lot of modules for different kinds of business types, structures.
  • Very customizable to your individual business needs
  • Very well known tool and has great documentation by users and Atlassian
  • Customer support is not always as responsive as you would want them to be
  • Version upgrades can be handled better.
Some of the key questions I would ask:
  • Is it the right tool for the business objective I'm trying to achieve?
  • Is it worth the cost?
  • We tracked all of our projects within this tool. Since we were dealing with a lot of projects at any given time, this tool helped a lot with tracking and visibility
  • The security restrictions are well layed out and that helps with beung able to give upper management the visibility into all the overall projects that are being tracked by each dept.
I have not used other project management software
Since it is so widely used within the organization and it has made so many processes more efficient, I foresee the use of the tool for a long time.
One of their strong points i stheir documentation. Almost all of the basic set up needed within JIRA is available online through atlassian and its easy to find and very precise. The more critical issues need to be addressed as well and hence the rating of 8 instead of a 9.
