Saving Time by Automating Reporting for Project Maintenance

"I didn't think this information could be gathered in any other way than manually. With VisualScript, I can get the information I need in just a couple of clicks that previously took me hours to compile."

Background

Managing Projects for the Federal Government

ASRC Federal Vistronix is a software developer and solutions provider solving complex data challenges for clients like the Bureau of Land Management in the United States. They design, develop, and deliver software and solutions to collect, process, analyze and present large and complex data for critical mission sets of national significance.

They utilize multiple DevOps tools, including the Atlassian product suite.

Challenge

Labor Intensive Process of Identifying Old Projects

ASRC Federal Vistronix manages around 50 active projects at any given time for a number of teams. To make sure their servers continue to handle the complexity efficiently and to remain in compliance of data retention policies, they regularly need to identify old projects and place them in an archive. To identify which projects are candidates for archiving, the old process was checking each project manually to see when the last activity was on the project and then making note of the contact on the project. The information would be gathered manually and entered into an Excel spreadsheet in a laborious process that would take hours.

Solution

Automating Reporting with VisualScript

The VisualScript team worked directly with ASRC Federal Vistronix to develop a custom solution that queries their Jira data, presents a high-level view of the last time their individual Jira projects were updated, and shows the assigned project lead. This report allows them to quickly identify and contact who is responsible for old projects. VisualScript was able to streamline the archival process. What used to take hours of manual labor, now just takes seconds.
