Gartner evaluated 16 tool vendors in terms of agile business transformation: The leading tool in this category was Jira Align(formerly AgileCraft) by Atlassian. Jira Align by Atlassian supports the agile transformation of a company through the comprehensive networking of acting persons and teams.
Why Gartner positions Atlassian as a leader in its assessment
Large companies in particular are often unable to react quickly to rapidly changing market requirements if their internal structures lack flexibility. Agile working, thinking in short project cycles, transparency and a high degree of personal responsibility are – in contrast to hierarchical structures – a success factor to meet the market requirements. Jira Align was developed precisely for such companies: The software is a solution specifically developed for large companiesfor agile product and portfolio planning aswell as for transformation and the resulting implementation – also with regard to corporate strategy.
Special features of Jira Align
Jira Align has special features such as real-time view of all operations and information and alignment of individual teams with business strategy. Every team member in the organization stays informed about the scope, timelines, and deliverables, as well as interdependencies between teams. Agile frameworks such as SAFe®, LeSS or Scrum@Scale can be mapped by Jira Align when transforming a company towards agility. The integration of an already existing Jira software instance is also guaranteed.
Jira Align has rightfully been recognized as by far the best product at supporting agile transformation in large enterprises.
