JIRA introduction

Atlassian JIRA is a versatile tool that lets its user plan, work and report in a centralized and effective structure. It is a tool that has been widely used in the software development industry and is now a great option for incident management in both Agile and Traditional model projects.

  • JIRA is a client-server database architecture application. It comes in both the cloud and the server versions.
  • It is used by developers to create the requirements, plan them, track them and work on them – all from one place. It also integrates with source code management tools to make the status changes are automatically updated.
  • Core JIRA for testers can come in handy in the areas of defect management and tracking miscellaneous QA tasks. However, to extend this to test management, the testers will have to add other add-ins.
  • This is a really cool aspect of JIRA. We can add only those features that we need. This will keep installations and expenses light.
  • JIRA presents the information in various graphical and tabular formats making it a perfect analysis tool

As always, our courses are concrete in terms of syllabus, professional in execution, interactive and effective.
