What is it?
Jira Software (formerly JIRA Agile) is a customisable web application designed to manage software development and other projects using agile methodology.
Jira Software provides two of the most common agile methodologies, Scrum and Kanban. They can be further customised to implement almost any desired agile project management method. Progress is shown on Scrum and Kanban task boards which simulate the well-known whiteboard with sticky notes. The Scrum boards are typically used by teams which use sprints to implement and deliver software or other products. Kanban boards are aimed at teams which focus on continuous delivery of work.
Why is it useful?
Agile project management methodologies have been widely adopted for software development, IT transformations and other projects. Jira Software provides management tool which can implement almost any agile methodology; it gives access to the project status to teams in different geographical locations; and it integrates with requirements management, source code control and test management tools to give end-to-end traceability.
- Traceability – view the lifecycle of all stories and sub-tasks in a sprint including owners, comments, and status changes.
- Create Swim-lanes to categorise issues on your work board – this allows you to group your issues into categories such as priority or assignee.
- Configure a board to meet your existing agile process – add and move columns to match your existing task boards.

In an agile workflow changes to source code should be deployed and tested early and often – as soon as there is a working component you try it out straight away. After working with Automation Consultants all the developer had to do was click a button and wait 20 minutes to register the changes to the advertising platform.
