Whitepapers and Webinars
Since many organizations use Jira for their project execution it makes a great deal of sense to leverage Jira to manage your overall Portfolio rather than buy yet another software solution and pay for an expensive integration.
Advanced real time portfolio, program and project management solutions can be rapidly and cost effectively set up for all your needs.
We recently ran a webinar on Portal apps for Jira and Confluence. Portal apps can be key to bringing context to work for role-workers and helping individuals feel a sense of orientation, especially in large corporate settings. Here’s a recap of all of the main points from the webinar:

Our recent webinar was on “Planning! Planning! Planning!”. Planning is a hugely significant category and we thought that it was about time for a recap, especially with recent developments–in particular Jira Work Management. Here’s our summary of all of the main points from the webinar:
There are many reasons to link issues, and many ways to do so. To use Insight or not? Customers still often ask this question. Issue-linking provides the foundational capability for many of our solution blueprints, from PPM to GRC and beyond. We will review many of the key use-cases for linking issues and third-party apps that provide this functionality. We’ll cover data catalogues, asset records in Jira, requests from Service Management, and the power and limitations of object graphing.
