Project Overview

ITRS engaged Appnovation to assist them with upgrading their Jira Software application, alongside a full migration of data out of Aha!, into their existing JIRA Software system.

As well as offering consulting on various aspects of JIRA Software and development processes. Because the team is using Aha! and not the standard for ITRS (JIRA) executive management does not have the visibility and metrics that they desire.

In order to meet the agreed business KPIs, Appnovation started off with an extensive discovery in order to fully understand all of the areas that were affected by having a distributed business process using tools without any connectivity between each tool.

Our goal also included the delivery of an overall improvement of the digital infrastructure, with integrated improvements leading to an increase in productivity.

Appnovation proactively seeks to solve business problems by getting to the root cause, rather than patching the symptoms, and they consistently go above and beyond what is requested. I wholeheartedly recommend Appnovation to anyone needing an enthusiastic, determined, insightful leader
