Jira Core and Jira
Jira Core is a tool that enables significant improvement in time, resources and costs of each project by increasing transparency and active project controlling. Workflows are documented and offer the possibility to make all activities in the project transparent.
The Jira software makes it possible to systematically record, evaluate and to track changes so that they do not endanger the success of a project. Projects are supported with recognised best practices. Companies thus achieve:
- Improved project and change management
- Active project control
- Greater transparency
- Effective communication
Jira Change Management Process
Three types of changes:
- Changes that are made within a defined framework of administrative activities. These are activities that are triggered by a customer request, such as creating users, setting up scripts, and so on.
- Changes that are required from system operation and are within the scope of defined administrative tasks for system maintenance, for instance importing new releases or patches, installing a plug-in, etc.
- Changes that cause complex changes in the customer's configuration which are risky and can lead to service interruptions, for instance replacing the application platform, installing a new application, etc.
The standard change process is divided into minor changes and major changes. Minor and major changes differ principally in the risk assessment and in the weighting of the impact of the proposed change. From this, lead times and processing times are derived. The change starts with the change request by the customer. The customer must indicate the description of the change request, the latest point in time for implementing the change and the reason for the change. Based on this data, the service manager creates a change plan. If important information is missing, the service manager will obtain it from the customer. Once the planned changes have been approved by the customer, the planned measures are carried out.
