Hi @Claire De Cort,
May I ask what specifically you are looking for? Jira Align, while supporting SAFe, also supports the other agile at scale frameworks.
Most of what is included/added in SAFe 5 is currently supported in Jira Align. Are there specific areas of interest in SAFe 5 that you don't see in Jira Align?
Currently (version 10.61) Jira Align supports the following SAFe 5 constructs:
If you are asking about how Jira Align supports the areas like Business Agility's Measure & Grow, there are many reports in Jira Align that support this area. There is also the option of using LEO, the business intelligence add-in, to create additional metrics views.
If you can possibly be more specific in your question of what you are looking for, then I can probably give you a more specific answer from an implementation and user perspective.
@Peter Jessen hit the nail on the head with this response, so thank you, Peter.
I'll add that our Jira Align leadership has and continues to work closely with the SAFe organization to keep a pulse and collaborate on agile-at-scale trends. As a result, we proactively consider SAFe methodologies when planning our roadmap and feature work (this was the case for the SAFe 5.0 framework as well).
In addition, along with the Program Board, Jira Align supports Risks and Dependencies, two key SAFe 5.0 PI Planning functions for visibility. Also, you can use Jira Align -> Story Backlog : Iteration View for a teams Plan and Load by iteration view. Even if teams are planning iterations in Jira, the stories and view are available in Jira Align through the integration.
Thanks @Peter Jessen - we're already using a lot of that functionality which is fab but I was hoping to find out if anything new is coming along?
One of the challenges we have with Jira Align is around business stakeholder and cross portfolio tracking of work and roadmap using JA (we found Leo too expensive to justify cost/benefit) and native JA struggles with volume. This has become more important in SAFE v5.
Hi @Claire De Cort - I certainly agree with you on some of your points. As for a roadmap of new or improved functionality, I will need to defer to the members of the Atlassian Jira Align Team.
(Or, What to expect when you’re expanding.) Once you've completed your Jumpstart, or your initial assessment of Jira Align, you'll start to think about how you can roll it out to the rest of your e...
