Jira Software

Jira Software is the #1 software development tool used by agile teams to plan, track and release world-class software. Jira supports scrum, kanban, or your own unique flavour of agile methodology. Jira can help your team implement Agile development using easily configurable boards, project settings, and workflows. The heart of Agile is the project board. Jira comes with Kanban and Scrum style boards, but both are easily customizable to meet the needs of your team.

Kanban

The Kanban project gives you an out-of-the-box workflow with Backlog, Selected for Development, In Progress, and Done. This lets the product owner add tasks to the backlog, and move them to “ready for development” once the task or user story is fully baked. New statuses and filters can easily be added to customize the Kanban board to adjust to your teams needs.

Scrum

The Scrum framework enables software teams to manage complex projects by creating a culture of collaboration. The Jira Scrum Board is the tool that unites teams around a single goal and promotes iterative, incremental delivery.

Reports

From agile boards to reports, you can plan, track, and manage all your agile software development projects from a single tool. Pick a framework to see how Jira Software can help your team release higher quality software, faster.

Deliver fast and reliably with DevOps and Atlassian

At Highway Three Solutions, we have been implementing CI/CD and DevOps workflows for 20 years. In the past few years, incredible advancements in pipelines, cloud technologies, and serverless deployment options have made CI/CD even more achievable.

High-performing teams deploy more often with fewer failures and faster recovery. Atlassian provides the tools and best practices for building a culture of collaboration for your DevOps transformation.

Workflow Customization and Automation

Jira Software allows you to totally customize and automate your workflow. Automation for Jira is now provided with all Jira Software licenses, and gives each project the ability to automate their processes, whether it is transitioning an issue to another status, notifying users, or posting a slack message.

Lean Approach

How does Highway Three help your organization implement Jira? We subscribe to the Lean Methodology. At its core, Lean is a business methodology that promotes the flow of value to the customer through two guiding tenets: continuous improvement and respect for people. Whether we are helping new customers onboard to Jira, helping with an Agile transformation, or just helping achieve your maximum potential with Jira, we follow the principals of Lean and Agile methodologies. Our planning workshops help to clarify your current processes: intake, how work gets done, how you verify and quality control your work product.

We design a solution tailored exactly to your business needs, and then implement it directly in your system. Finally, we provide user and administrative training so that you get the most out of Jira. We always provide a detailed project plan and estimate to help you understand the costs and timing of your Jira project.

Migrating to Cloud

The Cloud Platform is the foundation of security, compliance, reliability, privacy, and controls that span across Atlassian’s Cloud products. They have made several updates to their Cloud Platform, including the addition of encryption-at-rest for all customers and new end-user profile privacy controls. Atlassian Access, which includes enterprise-grade security and centralized administration across all Atlassian products, is also a part of the Cloud Platform.

One of the most exciting features in the cloud is the Next-Gen projects – easily configurable, out of the box visual roadmaps (now available for software projects too!).

At Highway Three Solutions we have been working with Canadian public sector organizations for over 20 years, doing both custom development and server configuration and management. We understand the complications these organizations face when making major changes to core tools like Jira, which are typically on-premise. With our experience and assistance we can make your cloud migration project a success. Reach out to us for a personalized demo and to discuss if cloud is right for you.
