Advanced Roadmaps for Jira by Michael Brown, Ascend Integrated

Organizations are increasingly seeking to become more agile and also meet increased demands for resources and program-wide reporting capabilities. Advanced Roadmaps for Jira, now a free offering with the Data Center deployment, provides teams the capability to manage resources and milestones in order for your organization to reach its goals. In this session, we will be reviewing Jira Software (Agile & Kanban capabilities) and diving into the program management functionality of Advanced Roadmaps, and review resource management, project schedule views, milestones, and integration capabilities with Confluence.

Cross-team project management for Jira Cloud by David Niro, ALM Works

Jira software offers a lot of capabilities for individual teams, providing them the tools to efficiently manage their work with Kanban and Scrum boards. However, it can be a bit more complicated to keep things on track once you have multiple teams working together across a variety of Jira projects. How can you stay on top of things as you grow? During this session, you will learn how to use Structure for Jira to improve visibility and tracking across teams and projects. We'll also demonstrate project planning with dependency and resource management using Structure, Gantt.

Spreadsheet issue editing for Jira: Introducing JXL by Hannes Obweger, Fine Software

As powerful and versatile as Jira is, sometimes nothing beats good old spreadsheets. In this talk, we introduce JXL - the new spreadsheet issue editing app for Jira Cloud. Combining the power of Jira with the familiarity of Excel or Google Sheets, JXL makes project management, roadmap prioritization, sprint planning, or requests triage a breeze. Join us to take JXL from setup to action in real-world use cases, from small teams to enterprise scenarios with thousands of issues. We show how JXL integrates with Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Work Management, as well as your very own Jira customizations, and a glimpse into the internals of an app that was built ground up for performance, scalability, and security. We share what’s ahead for JXL - and couldn’t be more excited to hear how it could fit your workflow.

Many thanks to ALM Works for sponsoring very generous prizes for this event!!!
