JIRA Benefits

Alexander Dobry
Fachbereichsleiter with 10,001+ employees
It's a tool that won't change the way that you work, but it supports the way that you work. Agile is changing your teams, changing your organization, the way that you work, and then JIRA will help you doing that across multiple locations, for instance. We don't do physical boards. I run a team with four locations, in three time zones. I need to work with online tools, and this is where the tool helps me. It helps me to use virtual Scrum boards across four locations, three time zones, and to plan my work. View full review »

Based on the flexibility that it offers us, we can adapt to different projects with different cycles. Based on whatever cycle we are working on for a particular project, we can configure the solution to suit us. This helps us to manage the work, essentially in one place, and we have visibility of all projects that are going on in the company. View full review »

Jonathan Machado
Senior Test Engineer at a venture capital & private equity firm with 10,001+ employees
Before JIRA we had to create our PRDs, our product definitions requirements in another feature, then using another tool to organize the combine with all the JIRA tasks. Now with JIRA Tasks, our product technicians can use the JIRA module to manage tasks by creating PRDs and user stories in JIRA, or even in Confluence (another product from Atlassian). Then, our PBAs, our business analysts, use Confluence to create all the definitions, which we can then use to create user stories in JIRA using the combine module. View full review »

* Visibility * Avoids emails and exchanging information in an informal way. I would rather have a tool that we do everything on. Also, we have access to end user policies where we can configure them and give access to the correct person. We have tracking of who works on what and why over the history of a project.

Transparency of development projects, as well as approval processes for some business projects, has improved massively.

Pre-Sales Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Most of the projects which we have taken in were using a waterfall model, which is very hard to convert into an agile or Scrum model. It helped our customers have visibility into requirements and reporting, since they were mostly using spreadsheets. We could help give them a clear cut view of what was happening on ground with development and the test database. View full review »

Also, JIRA is very customizable, for example, you can add unique fields or remove the existing ones. Reports, analytics, and a ton of widgets, they are great and intuitive. Perfect for an agile team.
