Software Development Center
Software development platform at an automotive manufacturer
Approx. 15,000 users for Jira and Confluence as well as other tools in software development. Use of JIRA in the version Data Center, Confluence and many other systems incl. very many intelligently linked plugins:
Additionally some custom extensions were developed:
Tasks: Development, support and consulting
Introduction of Jira
Manufacturer of automotive pumps
For various processes in the area of project management, Excel-based sheets were used at the customer. These sheets are to be replaced by systems from Atlassian that precisely map the functionalities:
Support and other processes with Jira
With the introduction of Atlassian tools, especially Jira ServiceDesk, a modern solution that is prepared for the future and easy to use for users is introduced. The following goals are being pursued:
In addition, Atlassian tools will be introduced for the digitalization of further processes and tasks.
In order to be able to optimally implement the digitization of the processes, Jira had to be integrated into the existing system landscape. For this purpose, mgm developed a Common Connector App. This communicates with the neighboring systems via a company-wide REST API.
Knowledge management with Confluence
Development program with approx. 2,000 employees
Consulting on the use of Confluence as a tool for knowledge management in consideration of ISO 9001
The management of knowledge covers the entire cycle from definition and generation to processing, dissemination and use. The goal is therefore to ensure efficient retrieval of information by means of clear structuring and presentation as well as intuitive operation. Additional functions such as commenting and other possibilities for interaction support the achievement of the goal.
The documents mentioned above are managed in the wiki, but also a QM manual. The basic principle is that all managed documents are stored there. In addition, committee resolutions that are binding or minutes from decision-making circles that document important decisions are also stored there. Normal minutes can also be stored in the wiki, but are not subject to ISO 9001 compliance. In the solution for the new wiki, it must be taken into account that content that has a default character is subject to an ISO-9001-compliant creation and release workflow.
For this purpose, there will be a workflow that basically includes the following statuses: in progress, reconciled, reviewed and released. Attributes such as document class, document control (author, version, releaser, reviewer), validity area, ... will also be managed. It must be possible to set up authorizations for changes to documents, status, etc. for specific roles or persons. This is much easier to solve in a wiki, which is also accessible for partners from outside.
Worldwide introduction of JIRA ServiceDesk
Shipping company with more than 10,000 users for the entire IT support.
With the introduction of Jira ServiceDesk, a uniform solution that is easy to use for the users is introduced. This is based on the proof-of-concept conducted at the customer's site.
The goals include:
Introduction of Jira and Confluence
JIRA and time tracking: Mapping of the complete project planning, documentation, time tracking and provision of performance records with JIRA software and Confluence
Installation of JIRA and Confluence (+1,000) for the customer in the Elster Online project.
This implementation includes JIRA (80 projects, 175 workflows &175,000 tickets) and
Confluence (60 global areas, 380 personal (project) areas & 19.000 pages)
Our tasks are:
The usage by the customer includes:
The Atlassian tools come with a lot of excellent, usable features. This is shown by the success in the market in very different usage scenarios. But it is also always necessary to add more functions to the systems by using apps (formerly called plugins or add-ons). This is the only way to meet the requirements that are indispensable for the respective application.
The Marketplace is therefore a very good way to search for such functional extensions. We support our customers in selecting the right apps, taking into account the functions, but also the stability etc. of the respective manufacturer. mgm has extensive experience and knowledge of the market to assist in this decision-making process.
mgm is also present on the Marketplace. In 2018, we started to develop apps and market them on the Marketplace:
Hierarchical Calculation Field
Sum up values from multiple numeric fields and transfer the result from the sub-task to the parent issue
Smart Panels for JIRA
Get more from Jira and Confluence by providing issue-sensitive data when working on a Jira issue!
Link Workflow Graphic for JIRA
Replace the Jira standard workflow diagram with your own customized graphic
Development of customized apps
This puts the user in a position to provide additional functions that are indispensable for company- or industry-specific use. This expands the possible range of applications for the tools in a diverse and far-reaching way.
The development of such apps is not witchcraft. Based on our knowledge of the underlying framework and our many years of experience, development can usually be accomplished with clearly defined and manageable effort.
