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 Agile Software Backlog

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.

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.
