Need Jira - which flavour?, On prem/cloud?, portfolio/jira software? :(

Hi everyone,

I have been tasked to have Jira installed at my client's office, and I need to know the 'system, infrastructure, team and other requirements' before I can move forward. Could someone lead me to the right place?

Thank you,

Hi @Srikanth SV

Here I want to explain the available Jira "flavours" as simple as possible:

  • Jira Core is just plain simple Jira. Our favourite issue tracker with great collaboration and workflow capabilities. :)
  • Jira Software is Jira Core with Kanban and Scrum boards, and a few other features for more structured working. This is very important for software development teams as well other teams working with Scrum or Kanban.
  • Jira Service Desk ads a Customer Portal and a few communication features to Jira to use it as helpdesk / service portal for your customers.

Portfolio is just an add-on for Jira, a agile roadmapping tool. Enabling you to plan in Portfolios, if your client needs to work an agile way.

If you want Server (on prem) or Cloud also depends on your requirements.
Maybe Pros and Cons of Cloud vs. Server can help you make a decision.

Cheers
Niklas
