Scaled Agile Reporting for Enterprise

Most enterprises view agility and collaboration as critical to their success. Agile management often starts in small pockets of teams across an enterprise. As organizations expand their Agile approach, they often to look to implement a formal system like Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®). SAFe has provided a set of guidelines for helping enterprises scale Lean and Agile practices across their organizations.

All levels of SAFe® can be implemented with some custom configurations of the Atlassian tools. However, using Jira and Confluence for SAFe® is not without its challenges. Jira does not provide out of the box cross-team reporting for organizations at scale.

VisualScript can fill this important gap using a variety of reports on a custom dashboard to let you connect requirements and dependencies, gain actionable insights, allocate resources more efficiently, and deliver what customers and stakeholders want faster at scale.

You can get a dashboard of reports that let you see across multiple teams without any manual collation. All while still in Jira, your single source of truth to managing all Agile initiatives.
