Jira Service Management

The only ITSM solution built on the Jira platform

About Jira Service Management

Formerly known as Jira Service Desk, Jira Service Management is an IT service management solution built on the popular Jira platform.

IT is in the midst of rapid transformation to build capabilities that enable rapid delivery of great services while managing cost and risk. But old ways of working constrain progress. Rigid processes limit team agility and speed. Disparate, disconnected tools interrupt the flow of information that accelerates good decision-making. Development and operations teams continue to fight through siloed tooling that’s critical to enabling a high-performing digital business. With Jira Service Management, you can:

- Manage work across teams on one platform
- Enable employees and customers to quickly get the help they need with a self-service portal
- Respond, resolve and continuously learn from incidents
- Innovate faster with automated change risk assessments, advanced approval workflows,
- Connect to CI/CD tools like Bitbucket Pipelines, Jenkins, and CircleCI
- Group incidents to problems, fast-tracking root cause analysis
- Gain visibility into infrastructure and understand service dependencies
- Set up a knowledge base to enable self-service
- Set up advanced SLA metrics and report on performance in real-time
- Configure automate rules so users can streamline repetitive tasks and agents can get more done

Jira Service Management is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant, named as a Strong Performer in the Forrester Wave™️: ESM and used by more than 25,000 organizations worldwide.

Key benefits of Jira Service Management

- Simple for your team to get started with ITSM, but also adaptable as you scale: with processes that can be continuously tuned to their unique needs, teams can deliver more value fast while pivoting more easily when needed
- Customized for teams, standardized for global organizations: standardize on tooling that’s flexible enough to support diverse team needs while not sacrificing the ability to work across teams
- Open collaborative platform: Collaborate across the organization more effectively by providing teams with visibility into the work of others
- Track work across the enterprise: Link issues across Jira and ingest data from other software development tools, so your IT support and operation teams have richer contextual information to rapidly respond to requests, incidents, and changes.
- Connect Dev and Ops: Deliver more customer impact while managing risk. Accelerate critical development work, eliminate toil, and deploy changes with ease, all backed by a complete audit trail for every change

In a crowded space for helpdesk apps, Jira Service Desk stood out because of the company that backs it up, its family of related apps and, the current integrations with existing third-party apps out there. Jira SD is well worth trying out.

Pros

From the same company of my favorite and trusted apps like Trello and Jira... We then gave Jira Service Desk a try. The user interface has a modern look and feel and is intuitive enough even for a novice user or admin. It has a pretty standard set of tools to run your usual IT Helpdesk and Support roles straight out of the box (Incident management, Problem, Change, SLA management, etc.). In fact, you can set up your helpdesk well within an hour (of course not counting the per company nitty-gritty). Default setup works, but it's also super customizable based on your company needs. The Dashboard has all the at-a-glance metrics, statistics and graphs to keep you up to speed with the overall status.

Again, coming from Atlassian, it has a ton of possibilities in terms of integration with other apps. I feel the constant stream of dev improvements and updates.

Cons

Even though I mentioned that the third party apps can be easily integrable, we find the documentation for creating one's own integration apps a bit lacking. Also, the creation of tickets can be more streamlined or simplified (perhaps with the minimum number of fields and button clicks) to make it easier or faster to create and then further details can follow.

Initial setup can be complex but it can also be super powerful if you are able to configure it properly. It's visual scripting and workflow tool is really capable and easy to learn

Pros

Its flexibility. It's a simple statement, I agree, and you're probably reading this wondering why I'm being so vague. But JIRA software is a bit hard to summarize simply because it's just so flexible. There's no "correct" way to use it.

It's rest API is pretty powerful too and very easy to extend Jira to "integrate" with 3rd party applications that doesn't have an official Jira integration.

Cons

Creating workflows can easily become very confusing and you can easily break how your projects in Jira work if you aren't careful. With every Jira production license you also get a free dev license so that you can set up an isolated dev/staging environment. This is invaluable and highly recommended. The downside is that there is no easy way to migrate any of your changes from dev to production. But there are 3rd party plugins for that.

Do you want a tool that does 1000 tasks but all of those tasks are 10% of what you need? GET THIS TOOL.
Do you want a tool that has a million different customizations, yet none are what you want and everything is wrongly done? Get it !

Sure it's """cheap""" but with all the time you loose, not worth it.

BTW, that 24/7 support, yeah, no, does not exist.

Pros

Well here's a tool that does everything, SD, incidents, KB, alerts, yes, it does a bit or everything.

Cons

It's awfull at doing things good. The new projects are barely compatible with new solutions, incidents and request are not configured correctly and can hardly be put in the same ticketing catalog. No advanced roadmaps (premium feature) in next gen projects. Automations are bad, tickets custom fields are sometimes not uderstood by the automation.

Overall we are very happy with Jira Service Desk; it has allowed us to provide a higher level of support to users than our previous service desk, and non-profit pricing was very beneficial for us. The software is usable in its default setup but we have found that there is still plenty of customisation that can be done if needed to suit more complex requirements.

Pros

I find the UI of Jira Service Desk very clean and modern compared to other service desks software on the market. Included with the service desk is a customisable user-facing portal for users to raise tickets in, which proved very popular with staff when raising tickets alongside traditional email tickets. Due to the way Jira splits service desks into different projects, we were able to create service desks for other departments in the organisation which helped improve productivity and workflow. There are some very useful and well-designed default reports included for ticket statistics (which can be used to keep management happy!). We found the default setup of Jira Service Desk fit our needs very well, but it is very easy to customise ticket workflows and other features to suit more complex needs.

Cons

For a service desk technician using Jira Service Desk the back-end UI for managing tickets can be a little overwhelming, however this can be fixed by editing the default workflows for tickets to hide not required information and details. The administration settings are somewhat unintuitively set out for system administrators, but once you get to grips with the layout it becomes easy enough to find what you need from the settings page. We found the instructions on the Atlassian website for setting up an external redirect with a custom URL in IIS a little sparse on detail, but a quick trip to the Atlassian forums cleared up any queries we had with the process.

Prior to using Jira Service Desk, were using a combination of Excel and SharePoint with workflows. We couldn't get great reports. It was hard to customize. Workflows broke without a reason because, you know, it's SharePoint. And the entire process of serving customers was dead slow. We brought in Jira Service Desk as a test bed. Within 2 hours, we were testing and customers were putting in tickets. While we used most of the default settings, the value we were generating was way beyond we ever had. Then, we set up SLAs and watch reports for a few days. We were able to see everything we wanted - who reported the issue, when, what was the priority, how many comment exchanges happened, how much time did we spend, did we meet SLAs, what was the solution, etc. Fast forward 2 years. We are now able to create strategies to service internal and external customers better based on the data from Jira. It has helped us go from making gut-feel decisioning to data-centric decisioning. Good data wins debates. Jira helped us with good data.

We are also utilizing Jira's excellent searching, dashboarding and API functionality to feed data to other systems and drive changes beyond just customers.

Pros

Jira Service Desk was very easy to get started with. You could literally sign up for it and begin using it within an hour. Ticketing system is very customizable and powerful. Customers can be added in bulk and customers can sign up for entering issues. We were able to create different projects (or service queues) so that customers could send requests for IT help, or administrative help, or help with projects. Each such project/queue had different fields. Metrics are all built into the software, so we can know how often Service Level Agreements were breached, who breached them etc. The sheer amount of customizability is a joy. However, without discipline and thoughtfulness, it is very easy to customize it the wrong way.

Cons

We feel that the price point could be lower and the speed could be a little faster. Atlassian has made improvements with speed. If a company had 5 people manning different queues and the issue volume is low, the cost would be ~1500/year for those 5 users. So, it would may not be cost effective for a small company that is watching their costs closely. We also felt that a Wiki is not built in. So, if a common solution needs to documented that spans multiple tickets, there's no way to do so. We could buy Confluence from Atlassian for an additional cost.
