For those in the Atlassian Community that haven't yet heard, Asana recently launched an integration with Jira Cloud to streamline collaboration between business and technical teams. With this integration, you’ll be able to create connected workflows across business and technical teams for real-time visibility into shared work.
When teams bring together the right people, processes, and ideas from across their organization, they can accomplish amazing things together. Unfortunately, not all teams work and communicate in the same tools, creating challenges for cross-functional collaborators and slowing down work on shared projects.

For example, technical teams will be able to execute smoother handoffs during:
