How to Make It Easy for Your Team to Work on Requirements and Tests in a Single Place by Jaroslaw Solecki, Devinti
Description The presentation shows that it’s possible to effectively use Jira for testing in order to perform the whole software development process in just one place. As the majority of companies knows Atlassian’s suite, the approach makes it possible for all the team members, including business analysts, to stay involved throughout each stage. Requirements and Test Management for Jira allows to begin the work with requirements documentation. The app lets its users verify the coverage of each requirement by related test cases so that nothing’s omitted. Seamless integration with Jira enables using its native functionalities, like automated rules, which support the workflow even when it comes to the most complex projects. Test executions can run smoothly, which is almost impossible if the project is scattered in many separate tools.
Enterprise Reporting in Jira Using Dataplane & eazyBI by Thad West, Isos Technology
The out of the box reporting options in Jira lack the power to generate meaningful, actionable custom reports across the organization. Enter the two most popular reporting engines available for Jira: Dataplane and eazyBI. Even though both of these tools are looking to fill the Jira reporting gap, they approach solving the problem from two different angles. We will take you on a tour, using real-world examples, on how to get the most out of these tools. When you leave this talk you should know which of these tools are a good fit for your organization and have the confidence to start using them immediately.
Using a Shared, Flexible Workflow to Reduce Maintenance by John Funk, Atlassian Architect
As Jira Administrators and/or workflow and process architects, we are often labeled as too rigid or inflexible by users and business stakeholders. Or maybe you just have LOTS of separate workflows that vary by two or three statuses (or even one!).
This presentation will show you how to create a truly flexible workflow that meets user needs. AND can be shared across projects. And the best part – all while reducing system maintenance for yourself.

John’s ability to advocate for the customer as well as maintain the integrity of the organization is unmatched. When I reported to him, he had just taken over the Operations portion of a project on which we were both working. He immediately crafted a plan to complete the application along with processes for testing and documentation. John handled the details of each screen, trained the developers and engineers on how the system worked and edited the documentation to convey system specifics. He was ever available to discuss the project and was always open to new ideas and putting them into practice. Working with John has taught me so much about business and how a good management style can inspire a team.
