Jira Portfolio 2.0: Enterprise Agility

June 7, 2016

Exciting news – Jira Portfolio 2.0 has arrived!

Jira Portfolio 2.0 has landed and it now features a new integration model with JIRA Software. By loading data dynamically from Jira Software, you can now plan in real-time and know that everything is always up to date. In addition, you can create a portfolio plan from your existing data in Jira and get visibility across all teams and projects.

With Portfolio for Jira, you can:

  • Make fast prioritization and trade-off decisions so you can answer ‘what-if’ questions and instantly see subsequent impact.
  • Manage team availability and skill-sets so you can ensure the right people are available when needed.
  • Plan and forecast realistic release dates and optimize your schedule in real time, so you know when you can deliver.
  • Set business goals and track progress to ensure everyone is aligned to the same priorities.

Most importantly Jira Portfolio enables a custom hierarchy view of work which has been a long requested feature for Jira. This also means that you can now view your projects via the lens of Portfolios, Initiatives, Platforms, Features. We believe this provides a more strategic project view and Agile activity, whilst supporting foundational Scrum and Kanban boards. 

Contact us today for a demo of Portfolio for Jira. Alternatively, we can have a discussion of how your teams can get the visibility they need to make better plans.
