Integrating Jira with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management

Integrating Jira with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management


Atlassian Jira and IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) play critical roles in systems and software engineering for companies developing mission-critical systems.

Epics, Stories, and Defects are commonly managed in Jira, while Requirements, Test Cases, Test Results, and Global Configurations are managed in IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management.

These tools are essential to your daily workflows. However, when it comes to demonstrating traceability between engineering disciplines such as Requirements and Issues, or between Defects and Tests, this division of information and tools can be critically disruptive and lead to longer delivery times, higher engineering costs, and impact product quality.

Join Robert Baillargeon (SodiusWillert) and Tom Hollowell (321 Gang) to learn how you can deliver projects faster while boosting collaboration and optimizing traceability when bridging the gap between Jira and IBM ELM with OSLC Connect for Jira.
