Discovering Portfolio for Jira

Portfolio for Jira enables realistic strategic planning, regardless of how many teams or people you have working towards your goals. Together with your Jira application, Portfolio for Jira provides a single source of truth for the current and future health of your initiatives.

Portfolio for Jira uses what-if scenarios, the data in your Jira application, and an intuitive interface to help your team do the following:

  • View, plan, and manage initiatives efficiently
  • Create reliable forecasts and realistic schedules
  • Troubleshoot and manage releases in an ever-changing environment


Create a plan or program from your existing data in your Jira application, and roll up your epics into initiatives to get a cross-team and cross-project view of your work.


Optimize your schedule in real-time, and instantly forecast realistic release dates so you know what you can deliver, and when you can deliver.


Manage team availabilities and skill sets to avoid bottlenecks, and ensure the right people are available when needed.


Make fast prioritization and trade-off decisions, and instantly see the impact of such in your plan, so you can answer 'what-if' questions.


Set business goals and track progress to make sure the team is indeed executing on strategy, with everyone aligned to the same priorities.


Have one single source of truth with aggregated visibility across teams, so you can keep everyone on the same page.
