We have two problems to resolve using Jira and Confluence. We want a cross-team view with a hierarchy that streches above Epics to Deliverables and Initiatives for instance. Also we would need a timeline or roadmap to follow up on the overall view. How?
have you looked at Cycle Control, its a add-on seamlessly integrated in JIRA where each initiative can be customized with fields as it has representation to an issue. Each initiative can be visualized on a Release Calendar timeline.
In addition it has a lot of means for cross team coordination and status definition - such as stages, milestones, checklists, gates and completely custom metrics with historic trends.
Take a look and let me know if it looks interesting. We will be happy to give you a demo, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sounds like a good usecase for Portfolio for JIRA - the new live plans provide you with configurable hierarchy (so you could define initiatives etc. above epics and build a hierarchy), and create a timeline based on team capacity and targeted release dates: https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/portfolio
Sorry, I should have been more specific. The problem with portfolio is that the themes and initiatives are not issues in themselves. There is no place for entering data about the themes and initiatives... They just have a name and a place in the hierarchy and that's not enough for us. Any other tips?
