The Atlassian Product Suite
Jira is a platform to track projects and workflows. Jira allows an object to be guided along a predefined workflow. That’s why we most aptly describe Jira with the term workflow-engine.
Object and workflow, the steps, can be freely defined and designed flexibly. Packages can represent tasks, task packages, documents, milestones, risks, requirements, and more. Depending on demand, the objects are equipped with general and specific attributes. With some imagination, from a change process, to requirements engineering, to a review database with action tracking and much more, Jira reflects it. As a result, Jira meets the needs of modern companies, where multidisciplinary teams and projects interact locally and globally.
Enable effective collaboration is central to all Atlassian products. Jira involves all stakeholders in the process by mentioning and observing objects, nominating employees, and commenting and sharing content, creating transparency and clarity. The latter is ensured by providing detailed reports and dashboards, created to convey the necessary perspective of everybody involved, from each individual to the organizational leadership. The user interface is structured clearly and its use is fun and motivates – even independent of the content.
Currently, Jira is divided into the following products:
Confluence complements Jira with a strong integrated interface to provide a strong and flexible platform to store and share knowledge, similar to Wikipedia. This shared platform enables simultaneous creation, sharing, annotation, and standardization and digitization of requirements, meeting notes, proposals, and reports. This promotes transparency, clarity and sharing of information.
