  • Hello everyone, and welcome to the webinar Meet JIRA Software.

  • My name is Jake Brereton

  • and I'm the Senior Product Marketing Manager for JIRA Software.

  • I'm joined by Jason Wong, JIRA Software's Principal Product Manager.

  • We're thrilled that you joined us today

  • and can't wait to tell you more about JIRA Software.

  • JIRA's first purpose-built experience just for software teams.

  • Over the next 25 minutes, we'll be introducing you to JIRA Software

  • and giving you an overview of what it is,

  • why we built it and, most importantly,

  • how it can help your software team plan,

  • track and release world-class software faster than ever.

  • The entire JIRA team has worked so incredibly hard

  • to build and ship JIRA software.

  • It's truly our pleasure to introduce it to you here today.

  • Here's a quick rundown of the things we'll be covering in today's webinar.

  • First, I'll take a moment to introduce you to JIRA software

  • and tell you what makes it such a revolutionary product,

  • both for Atlassian,

  • as well as the millions around the world using JIRA for software development today.

  • I'll then give you a bit of context into the market trends

  • that have guided and shaped the development of JIRA software.

  • We're proud to say that this product has come from years of learnings,

  • data, trends and feedback from teams around the world

  • who have been using JIRA for software development.

  • Next we'll talk about what these trends mean

  • for great software development in today's world.

  • The world of software is rapidly changing and evolving,

  • and today, there's more pressure to release better software

  • more often than ever before.

  • We designed JIRA software knowing

  • that the best teams need to release early and often.

  • So I'll show you how it's the one tool your software team needs

  • to meet the pressures of a rapidly changing industry

  • and surely deliver world-class software fast.

  • After that I'll provide you with three customer success stories

  • and talk briefly about some of the amazing software development

  • being done with JIRA software today.

  • Next, I'll turn it over to Jason,

  • who'll give you a brief demo of the product.

  • Planning, tracking, releasing and reporting

  • are all essential to the software development process.

  • Jason will walk you through each of these sections

  • and talk about how JIRA software comes ready to do all of these things

  • right out of the box.

  • We will then finish the webinar with a live Q & A.

  • Since there will be a live Q & A following the presentation,

  • we strongly encourage you to ask questions in the Q & A dialog box

  • in the upper left hand corner of your screen.

  • We've actually, intentionally created a shorter webinar today

  • to provide extra time at the end to answer questions.

  • So please ask any and all questions you may have

  • over the course of the webinar,

  • and we'll get to as many as we can in the alloted time.

  • So let's get started.

  • Before we delve in the market trends,

  • I like to begin by giving you a brief overview of three biggest values

  • that JIRA Software brings to software teams everywhere.

  • First, we're extremely proud of the fact that JIRA Software

  • is the number one software development tool

  • used by agile teams.

  • In other words, more software developers use JIRA Software

  • to do Agile software development than any other Agile tool in the market.

  • It's trusted through and through by teams all over the world

  • who are shipping higher quality software fast.

  • Secondly, JIRA Software is JIRA's first product

  • that is purpose-built for software teams.

  • While JIRA's DNA has always been in software development,

  • over the years teams of all shapes and sizes

  • have adopted JIRA across their organizations

  • for a whole host of different purposes.

  • With JIRA Software, for the first time in 13 years,

  • we're doubling down on software teams and building a tool specifically for them.

  • With the addition of this purpose-built experience,

  • we will now be able to make improvements to JIRA Software, fast and furiously,

  • knowing that everything we added to the product

  • is designed to make your software team more effective and more efficient.

  • And finally, building the best parts of JIRA Agile

  • which was Atlassians former add-on into JIRA,

  • have allowed us to create a true project driven experience.

  • A teams project is where they can connect and align,

  • and where everyone stays up-to-date on the teams' progress.

  • In the world of JIRA and JIRA Agile,

  • a team's project wasn't always at the center of their work

  • and this is something that we fixed in JIRA Software.

  • In JIRA Software teams will always have full visibility in context

  • into what everyone in their team is working on,

  • and how they're tracking towards their goal.

  • For the first time team members will also have everything they need

  • only one click away.

  • So now that you know what JIRA Software brings to the table,

  • let's take a quick glance of the product.

  • What you see here is a typical Scrum board in JIRA Software.

  • This is the view that any member of the software team will see everyday

  • as they work through issues and stories.

  • JIRA Software comes ready out of the box for Scrum teams, Kanban teams,

  • or teams who work in a mixed methodology.

  • The product also includes deep developer tool integrations,

  • which you can see on the right side of your screen

  • in the development panel.

  • The biggest visual change you'll notice in JIRA Software

  • is the addition of a new sidebar at the left of your screen.

  • After months of iteration, testing and feedback from many of you,

  • we've designed this new sidebar so that everything a software team needs

  • is now only one click away.

  • The new sidebar also allows teams to add custom links

  • and personalize the space, so that any useful items,

  • anything from confluence page specs to HipChat rooms,

  • to BitBbucket repos, and even external websites

  • are only one click away.

  • As an add-on,

  • the JIRA and JIRA Agile experience felt disjointed in some places.

  • With the addition of this new sidebar in JIRA Software,

  • we brought everything a software team needs to one place

  • and send it around the team's project.

  • As a result, everything a team member may need

  • is truly only one click away,

  • no matter where they are in the product.

  • We'll return to the product again later for a full walk-through,

  • but in the meantime, I'd like to give you a bit of backround

  • into some of the market trends we've been tracking,

  • and how we built JIRA Software to meet the needs of these trends;

  • in particular, software teams who ship early and often.

  • There were too many market forces that helped guide the development

  • of JIRA Software.

  • The trends we were seeing internally, among our own users

  • and the trends we were seeing

  • across the larger software development community as a whole.

  • Most of you are probably familiar with Atlassian's first product, JIRA.

  • Launching a bug tracker in 2003,

  • JIRA has since grown to be the trusted project tracking

  • and workflow management system

  • for over 35,000 customers around the world.

  • And while JIRA has become ubiquitous

  • for teams looking to plan and track virtually anything,

  • JIRA's roots have always been deep in software development

  • and with software teams.

  • And not just any software teams, Agile software teams.

  • One 2014 survey revealed that nearly 70% of software teams using JIRA

  • were leveraging JIRA with JIRA Agile,

  • and enjoying all the powerful Agile functionality that comes out of the box

  • with what used to be our most popular add-on.

  • Based on this trend, which we saw across JIRA's enormous user base,

  • it was clear that Agile software development

  • was no longer an exception, but instead had become the norm.

  • And this trend wasn't something

  • we were just seeing within our own user base.

  • Over the past decade, the state of software development

  • has been steadily moving away from larger teams

  • and towards smaller, more agile and more autonomous teams.

  • Software teams of today aren't working on anything less ambitious.

  • In fact, it's quite the opposite.

  • But these days, software teams

  • are tackling their projects in smaller chuncks

  • and with more nimble teams

  • that are delivering value to customers more often.

  • This is a trend that we've heard over and over again in customer interviews

  • and continue to hear today with companies of every shape and size.

  • These smaller and more agile teams

  • are often working together on a single project

  • but each require a different, more personalized experience.

  • An experience that allows each team to work the way they want to work,

  • increases ability across their software team and project

  • and continue to improve over time.

  • This is exactly what JIRA Software enables them to do.

  • But a move towards smaller, more autonomous and more agile teams

  • isn't the only trend we've been tracking.

  • Additionally, we've seen a greater focus on teams releasing software

  • more often than ever before.

  • For this reason, in JIRA's 6.4 we launched Release Hub

  • which gives software teams the ability

  • to check on the health and status of upcoming releases.

  • In the short time since its launch,

  • Release Hub has seen the highest adoption of any JIRA feature we've every released.

  • Our recent study of over 5000 Agile projects

  • found that teams that release most often have 11 major contributors per release,

  • are able to release 20% more often,

  • and stick to an average sprint length of 10 days.

  • These numbers not only further solidify the importance of smaller,

  • and more autonomous agile teams,

  • but also that releasing early and often is an advantage

  • and something that teams are actively striving for.

  • So whether you were looking at the cone or ship rate of the JIRA user base,

  • watching external market trends of smaller and more autonomous agile teams

  • or analyzing what teams look like who release software early and often,

  • the market need was clear.

  • Software teams needed one tool

  • that married great out-of-the-box agile functionality,

  • with a flexible workflow management system and deep developer tool integrations

  • that in turn could power things like Release Hub.

  • So that's exactly what we've built in the JIRA Software.

  • It's all the flexible workflow and deep development tool integrations

  • that teams love about JIRA,

  • married with all the flexible Agile functionality

  • that gives teams their freedom to work in the way that's best for them.

  • Srum boards, Kanban boards, Release Hub and countless Agile reports

  • are just the tip of the iceberg in JIRA Software.

  • It's all available and ready to ship right out of the box.

  • Knowing this, it's hopefully clear why JIRA Software is the tool

  • your software team needs to realize their potential

  • as a high performing Agile team.

  • Planning, tracking and releasing world-class software fast

  • has truly never been easier.

  • Now that we've covered the market trends that help shape JIRA Software,

  • I'd like to discuss what it takes to build great software today.

  • The software industry is rapidly evolving in a constant flux,

  • and that means that software teams of today

  • need to be able to meet the ever-growing and every changing demands of their users.

  • As I mentioned earlier,

  • JIRA Software was built from years of learning, data,

  • trends and feedback from teams around the world

  • who have been using JIRA for software development.

  • To highlight some of the pain points we've heard

  • in customer interviews, time and time again,

  • I've grabbed some quotes to share with you.

  • I'll briefly follow each quote with an explanation

  • of how JIRA Software solves that particular pain point identified.

  • The first pain point we often hear

  • involves different team members using different tools

  • and the lack of collaboration and communication that arises

  • as a direct result.

  • In a customer's words,

  • "When different team members are suing different tools

  • for planning and tacking,

  • it's impossible to know if what we're all looking at every day

  • is the whole picture, or even accurate.

  • For this reason, we didn't design JIRA Software

  • for a single person or a single role.

  • JIRA Software was built to be the single tool

  • that every member of your software team can use

  • to collaborate, track and ship software.

  • Developers, product managers, Dev managers, quality engineers,

  • designers, tech writers, the list goes on.

  • But no matter who you have involved in your software development process,

  • JIRA Software was made with them in mind.

  • As a result of having everyone using the same tool,

  • JIRA Software captures real time performance data

  • on all teams and team members.

  • The bottom line is accurate up-to-date data at your fingertips.

  • Data that is crucial in performing retrospectives

  • and determining how to best improve team performance each and every sprint.

  • The second pain point we ran across

  • involves the desire for teams to choose a way of work and a work process

  • that works best for them.

  • Every team is unique, as this quote captures:

  • "No two teams in our company work the same way,

  • and we
