Does Jira Service Desk do these things...

The company I work for is potentially looking for a new service desk product, and I suggested Jira Service Desk as I love the work you guys have done with the product.

What I got back from management was though:

"It does have a competent Service Desk capability, however it also lacks other ITIL attributes such as CMDB, multi work-flow, segregation and problem, request and change management. For small organisations Jira is a credible option, however our needs are more complex"

From what I'm aware of Jira Service Desk does have these, all within easy reach:

CMDB - ?????????  Is this it ?

Multi work-flow - - anything better than this?

Problem/Request/Change -

Any comments and suggested info I can provide back would be appreciated.

Hi James

1. CMDB - ?????????  Is this it ? - You can achieve this through customfields and prepopulated values to the suystem using some code or you can use insight plugin for JIRA servicedesk for asset management

2. Multiworkflow - Each issuetype can have individual workflow, but not individual workflow based on roles. 

3. Problem/Request/Change can be managed and configured based on issuetype using Component.
