Ensure JIRA Integration Effortlessly and Seamlessly

  1. 1. Ensure JIRA Integration Effortlessly and SeamlesslyIn the software development process, the software development team uses several tools for improvingthe quality and efficiency of the products and for maximizing productivity and timely delivery. Some ofthese tools include Requirements Management tools, Test Management tools, Issue Management tools,Risk Management tools, Release Management tools, Document Management tools, and IT ProjectManagement tools. Hence, one of the daunting tasks faced by both local and global organizations is withrespect to integration. Take for instance JIRA. JIRA is a proprietary issue-tracking product developed byAtlassian for bug tracking, issue tracking and project management. Hence, the software developmentteam needs good adapters or integration platform to integrate JIRA easily and effortlessly. This helps toresolve integration problems and enable project team to work smoothly. Here is a look at some of thebenefits of deploying best of the breed adapters or integration platform for JIRA integration.  Allows project teams to work on issues from within their preferred tool environment  Automates actions on issues resulting from other integrated tools  Ensures visibility across tools, traceability and micro-level process automationAn integration platform allows organizations to use tools that they own such as Doors for requirementmanagement, Clear Case for configuration management, and Quality Center for test management, orcan use custom-made, homegrown products to support various application lifecycle phases byintegrating them through an integration platform. This ensures cross-lifecycle transparency, macro andmicro-level processes automation and correspondence of activities across disciplines.Consider a situation where the software development team needs to integrate Atlassian JIRA and IBMRational Request. With a best of the breed integration platform, the software development team can:  Gain greater insight into the progress and quality of application development  Enact best practice processes across software development life cycle stages to ensure strict process adherence and achieve consistency, repeatability and predictability  Overcome challenges for globally distributed development by connecting tools across geographies  Foster collaboration between stakeholders even when they are using different tools to accomplish their tasks  Achieve measurable productivity gain for individuals and teams. Deliver faster  Enhance customer satisfaction by breaking down the developer/customer barrier, enabling rapid delivery of customer-driven value and improving overall delivery quality  Obtain actionable metrics and intelligence through data aggregation across integrated application development lifecycle tools to make smart decisions influencing cost, quality and time  Manage change with confidence by establishing end-to-end multi-directional traceability between the lifecycle artifacts and deliverables coming from different Application Lifecycle Management - ALM tools Plug any tool from any vendor any time to your integrated tools ecosystem and follow your best practice process irrespective of the tools chosen.Thus by collaborating with best of the breed solution providers, enterprises can ensure seamless andeffective JIRA integration.Related Links - Integrated ALM
