As any enterprise will tell you, implementing and managing large-scale Jira instances has its challenges. For organizations that are rapidly growing, there is a lot to learn. To help prepare our enterprise clients for large-scale Jira implementations and ongoing management, and to support clients as they grow, we’ve created a detailed guide: Managing Jira at Scale: How to Optimize Jira as Your Company Grows.
This new, comprehensive resource explores common pain points that enterprise organizations encounter in scaling Jira, including:
- Governance: As organizations scale, they need to align everyone to a similar way of working—i.e. refine how they use Jira to fit the needs of many vs. the needs of a few. In our guide, we cover consolidating Jira administrators so fewer people can make changes, formalizing a way for users to request changes, creating project templates and documentation, and instituting a governance-related feedback loop.
- Managing Instances: There are so many things to consider when it comes to setting up your Atlassian environment. Some of the things we cover in the guide include defining your node architecture, addressing high availability and disaster recovery, and determining how to monitor and report on the health of your environment and tools.
- Users: Managing users at scale isn’t difficult, but there is a fair amount of legwork involved. We cover distinguishing between user groups and project roles, onboarding and offboarding, and cleaning up after deactivated users among other topics.
In addition, Managing Jira at Scale: How to Optimize Jira as Your Company Grows is full of useful guidance, tips, and tricks. If your organization is managing Jira at scale or simply scaling up, you won’t want to miss this great resource!
