Jira is a great tool that unleashes the potential of every team. It is used by any and all teams, and can be bent in many different ways to meet their needs. As teams start to scale, reporting up and down the organization can be difficult. For example, different executives in the C-Suite want to see specific data sets, in a specific way, in simple reports. When will this initiative be done, and what is the current status across all of my initiatives? Product Managers that work in different scaled agile methodologies have a certain set of reports needed, that can help them quickly answer questions. What is the velocity across all of my teams? What are my cross-team dependencies, and which team(s) will be working on specific features in specific versions? This is where custom reporting that is designed to visualize the data of multiple teams becomes critical. In this talk, Evan Golden, Senior Solutions Engineer at Smartdraw Software, will talk about reporting for organizations building products with multiple teams at scale. The presentation will include real-world problems, and how they were solved with different custom reports using the Visualscript product.
