About this event

Onsite expert, professional speakers following our Boston AUG 2018 PMO series!

Leveraging Existing JIRA Data to Reveal Vital Business Information

Jeremy Stark will show how you can use JIRA data to determine what people were working on and when by rolling up the costing through the scope definitions, workflows, and financials. He'll compare data extracted from JIRA and reports of time tracking data from Clarity for validity. This will reveal critical information about operational budgeting and spending.

Automated Integration of Initiatives between Jira and Confluence

PPM - Funnel Overview

Executive leadership teams are frequently overwhelmed by the volume of implementation requests that demand satisfaction. Adding to this complexity is that project requests can come from both formal and informal request channels.

William Rojas will look at Initiatives and how these capture information from ideation through development and delivery. Though this ends up requiring multiple Atlassian tools to manage the different stages and information formats associated with an Initiative. Along with multiple tools comes duplication and the need for synchronization. But no worries, with ScriptRunner for JIRA and ScriptRunner for Confluence and some well thought out configuration all this integration can all be automated; allowing to seamlessly manage Initiative information across multiple tools without copy/paste or manually synchronizing each side. In this presentation, we will show a sample implementation of just type of automated integration between Jira and Confluence.

* What and Why Initiatives
* Initiative Funnel
* Splitting information across multiple tools
* Integrated process
* Demo sample implementation
