What is JIRA?

Jira is a well-known project management solution that helps users map out, prioritize, and delegate their tasks. Typically used by software teams that build and ship products, the system streamlines the app development process from conceptualization to execution. Built upon more than 15 years of agile evolution, Jira Software undergoes continuous updates to ensure support for the most recent trends in software development.

Jira Software allows teams to flexibly plan in ways that they find most convenient thanks to its support for Scrum, Kanban, and Scrumban methodologies. Furthermore, your teams have access to critical and actionable insight regarding their agile process through the system’s visual, data-driven reporting.

Additionally, the simple yet intuitive interface allows users to easily collaborate with each other and optimize all their work processes. Also, with the platform’s very own JQL (Jira Query Language), custom filters can be used. This allows developers to easily create queries and manipulate data within a short time.

Overview of JIRA benefits

ira Software is a comprehensive issue and project tracking and management solution which offers the following features:

Agile project management

The platform primarily focuses on agile project management, offering both Scrum and Kanban approaches. It also has the capability to capture regulatory evidence at different stages of your development process. Moreover, Jira Software supports all sorts of estimation techniques, be it by hours, story points, or more. This way, you can make sure that you are working with accurate data at all times.

Moreover, users can easily organize the order of the items in their product backlog such as bugs, issues, and stories, through the system’s intuitive drag-and-drop function. Through this, the most important ones are kept at the top where prioritizing them is easier.

Wide range of customization

Jira was projected as an agile system, able to meet the needs of different niches and industries. Driven by such intent, it evolved over the years into a highly customizable and feature-rich solution that uses a hybrid Scrumban approach which combines Scrum and Kanban to adapt to every user scenario.

With Jira, all your workflows, states, fields, and issue types will get sensible defaults you can change upon need, or even create custom workflows and issue schemes in more specific cases. This will take much of your developers’ burden off their shoulders, and empower your project management units to maximize the potential of their idea. If you’re using Jira’s cloud-based solution, the configuration will take even less time.
