Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) July 14, 2016
Smartsheet, the collaborative work management platform redefining the way that individuals, teams, and organizations deliver great work, today announced an exciting new integration with JIRA, a leading software development tool by Atlassian. Smartsheet for JIRA unifies and automatically syncs data across these award-winning applications, driving broader transparency and faster progress for complex projects and processes.
“This integration breaks down barriers that can exist between developers and non-technical team members by providing a common data platform,” said Mark Mader, president and CEO of Smartsheet. “Smartsheet for JIRA provides the visibility enterprises need by syncing information between JIRA and Smartsheet, thereby allowing teams to access common data while working in the tool that makes the most sense to them.”
JIRA has been a staple of Atlassian’s core product lineup for years, embraced by IT operations, software developers, and technical teams that prefer customization across elements such as unstructured data-driven fields, plugins, and scripts. This integration delivers on requests by Smartsheet users to import JIRA’s technical workflow into Smartsheet’s platform, creating an easy-to-use view of overall project progress through to completion.
Smartsheet for JIRA reinforces the company’s commitment to a frictionless, interconnected ecosystem of data integrations, applications, and tools that delivers positive business impact. By bringing more choice and customization, the new offering helps individuals, teams and organizations drive real-time visibility and enhanced efficiency in any cross-functional workflow.
Specifically, Smartsheet’s JIRA Connector provides:
● Improved Visibility: Business and project managers now have instant visibility into IT operations and software development projects. Multiple linked Sheets, Reports, and Sights can all be used to roll up statuses across teams or categorize cases by any element, empowering cross-functional status insights such as budget/actual, and time-to-done performance metrics fields.
● Customized Views: Executives and business users can easily customize Smartsheet to only sync and view relevant fields from JIRA. Users are also given the ability to visualize work their way using other Smartsheet views: Gantt View, Calendar View, Card View, and Sights.
● Enhanced Collaboration Support: Users and teams can manage multiple sprints or backlogs simultaneously, furthering collaboration with unlicensed or non-technical users. Smartsheet for JIRA can link sheets to multiple JIRA projects, capturing cross-functional efforts across teams and projects.
This new JIRA integration is available for use today. Smartsheet for JIRA is a premium capability available for additional fees to customers with Team and Enterprise plans. For more information or to begin a trial of Smartsheet, please visit http://www.smartsheet.com.
