Jira and Confluence
Jira is "the workflow engine". Meaning, Jira is great at holding items that represent specific tasks or 'objects' and can track the status of the task. In this example the contract lifecycle. Jira can support custom fields where you can define dates to remind your team of due dates or expiration of the contract.
The power comes from Jira and Confluence integrated together. You can link a page (the contract from this example) and the Jira item together. Then Jira becomes your reporting tool on the number of contracts in progress or completed, region, due date, reminders, etc. You can even create a dashboard to report on all your contract statuses cumulatively such as percent completed or in the review.
Jira Software and Confluence
Confluence and Jira were designed to complement each other, and have a number of integration points built-in. If your Confluence and Jira sites are connected using Application Links, you can display and create Jira issues and more from within Confluence.
