Jira is a project management tool that, thanks to its versatility, can be used to work in any industry.

The basic version of Jira has simple functionality for managing projects at different levels using Scrum and Kanban methods. But a huge plus is that this functionality can be expanded with the help of applications, and add functions that are needed for the work of your team.

So, they are like apps for your smartphone.

Even as Atlassian moves to the cloud, plugin functionality continues to offer a great way to customize Jira, Confluence, and other products.

What issues do Jira apps solve?

The most diverse, starting with advanced functionality for project management (tracking working hours, automatic reports, integration of Jira notifications with mail or channel in Slack), interface improvements, test management and development, and ending with integration with other tools (GitLab, GitHub, Figma, Miro, Microsoft Teams, Trello, OneDrive, etc.)
