Snapshot of the Jira Service Desk Announcement

October 3, 2013

So what is Jira Service Desk?

Jira Service Desk is a well thought out application that builds on the experience of customers who use Jira for this purpose. It is a simple new interface that can be provided direct to customers/users for issue capture. Service teams can allocate SLAs to items and then track and prioritise based on the “clock ticking” against these SLAs. We think this is a great first step for clients wanting to adopt Jira for wider use. In addition, it can plug directly into other ITIL style issue types. There are very cool visual status dashboards for teams to quickly see and reprioritize tickets. At Blended Perspectives, we find the visual dashboards much more effective than Jira’s previous efforts.

Another key feature is the integration of Confluence into the application as a knowledge base. This is so that users can see if their issues already have solutions. As we know, Atlassian holds integration close to its heart. This interconnected nature between Confluence and Jira Service Desk will undoubtedly add value to many organizations. This new offering also has excellent out-of-the-box reporting, a feature that many small organizations will find very useful.
