All Agile Methodologies play well with Jira Software
No matter what your company’s approach to the SDLC is, Jira Software helps your team adapt to changes quickly, accurately, and with confidence.
Scrum’s framework drives teams to achieve incremental, iterative delivery of features and products. The scrum framework ensures the team’s work as collaborative builders of the system or solutions. You can create scrum boards for every type of team that forms part of the continuous development cycle.
Jira Software supports sprint management, backlog tracking, epic creation and issue tracking to name a few. With swimlanes and user stories, you can manage every activity during the process to improve your code quality.
Using Kanban boards ensures your current and future workloads are visible to the team, allowing them to plan their activities accordingly. With better insight into the complete delivery pipeline, your team will deliver better code, more frequently.
Using roadmaps to communicate the bigger picture to all stakeholders, Jira Software helps you make better daily decisions. You can drill down into the exact stages of the associated epics and review the sprints still required, making everyone work consistently towards the same goals.
Roadmaps allow you to create visual timelines, track forecasts, team capacities, and to connect the requirements (epics and user stories) directly to the real-time visuals.
Jira Software brings Agility to the Entire Company
Jira Software can improve any team’s collaborative efforts no matter the business unit. By employing the power of scrum cards to other functional departments, the operational efficiencies increase while information is more transparent.
For any situation where teams have to work towards a unified goal, (such as planning a marketing campaign or staffing an upcoming project) Jira Software will help them achieve their targets.
Reporting and Efficiency Tracking
Reports for each sprint provide you with actionable insights of the entire process. From burndown charts to cumulative Flow diagrams, Jira Software has out-of-the-box (OOTB) analytical tools that drive process efficiency for each sprint cycle.
Some of the OOTB reports are:
Allows teams to track their outstanding work and see lags early. Using the burndown chart will help teams make better decisions for each sprint, also improving the estimations.
Establishes the team’s overall performance over time. You can determine how much work is pushed to the backlog and adapt the plan accordingly.
Cumulative Flow Diagrams
Cumulative flow diagrams track the scope of work regardless of the completions. It gives the team an overview of each project size and its required effort.
Jira Software Deploys Quickly and Easily
For scalability, Jira Software you can host in the cloud or from a datacenter. If you need to secure your code infrastructure on-site, server deployment ensures control. No matter what your company’s SDLC requires, Jira Software will improve teamwork and departmental transparency.
