Achieve a Best-Practice Approach to Traceability
To comply with industry standards, engineering teams in regulated industries must achieve requirements traceability across siloed teams and tools. Most software development teams have chosen Jira as their preferred task management tool and refuse to switch to cumbersome legacy ALM tools that would negatively impact their productivity. And some attempt to compare Jama Connect vs. Jira for complex product development. But, attempts to try and achieve Live Traceability with Jira or Jira plugins break down quickly as the complexity of approvals, versioning, change impact analysis, baselines and variant management overwhelm a task management approach. This is where Jama Connect can help.
The best-practice approach implemented by hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies and startups alike, is to use Jama Connect to create Live Traceability™ across a best-of-breed toolchain including Jira or Azure DevOps for the software development team. This approach simultaneously solves the need for Live Traceability AND causes no disruption to existing tools, processes, and even field names for the software development team in Jira.

Learn How to Better Reduce the Risk of Negative Product Outcomes
Some companies try to manage traceability in a 100% manual manner between Jira and dozens of other tools and spreadsheets. This leads to a significant drag on engineers’ productivity and morale, and leads to significantly more defects, rework, delays, cost overruns, audit failures, and uncovered user needs.
Minimize Late-Stage Changes by Linking Requirements and Tests with Development Activity
Learn how Jama Connect links Jira tasks and defects to requirements for Live Traceability through the product/system development process. Product and engineering teams can connect product planning to execution and stay in sync to ensure accuracy and quality of work.
