Technical teams in many companies work happily and successfully with Jira – but software that has a reputation for being a development system is not normally something which the Average Joe can also use for their work. When such a person starts working with Jira for the first time, they may be a little overwhelmed by the depth of the system’s many features and functions. Nevertheless, we and many of our customers use Jira with completely different teams and company departments. The advantages of Jira are not limited to just our technical teams. You can clearly see the advantages that Jira brings to all sorts of teams when you focus on its ability to be transparent, its visualizations and how it inspires collaboration rather than technical integration.
I have been using Google G Suite as an office environment for communication and collaboration for about six years. In the following post, I’ll describe a situation that should sound familiar; in this case a meeting with a mixed group of participants. Distributed meetings are one of Google G Suite’s strong suits.

Microblogging for Confluence is a simple, transparent and effective way of centrally organizing team communication in a collaborative project.
When 15 teams in a large organization develop a product together, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is right around the corner. The Program Increment Planning, or more commonly PI Planning, is carried out four to five times a year. Scaled Agile underlines the importance of PI Planning in SAFe®.
According to Gartner, Atlassian offers a comprehensive solution for the implementation of agile as well as more traditional projects in that it has limited requirements for functions at the portfolio level.
With scripts, you can extensively customize Jira (screens, custom fields, and more), automate complex workflows, create custom listeners to react to specific events, and enhance Jira’s reporting and integration capabilities. However, many scripting apps that plug into Jira don’t give you access to the full API, or use horribly complex scripting languages. But Power Scripts for Jira makes scripting easy.
