The World's Largest Broadcasting and Cable Television Company Migrates and Streamlines Jira Solution

By Praecipio Consulting on Jan 31, 2019 3:48:24 PM

Overview

Enterprises have increasingly adopted team collaboration systems and project management with bug/issue tracking software to plan, track and manage agile software development projects. However, as these solutions have proliferated, companies often find that multiple instances of the same software has been implemented in different business units, resulting in unintended silos that were not designed with potential future consolidation in mind. Compounding that issue, different departments implement business processes and terminology that are unique to them, and that create additional challenges when attempting to merge capabilities. Finally, as these systems are adopted more heavily and the sheer volume of data contained within them increases, stability can become a major concern and require dedicated maintenance resources.

Tipping the Scale for Enterprise Growth

By Praecipio Consulting on Jan 31, 2019 3:15:50 PM

An Atlassian Applications Migration to AWS.

Overview

In the realm of a business environment, growth can simultaneously be a gift and a curse. Typically, this is when an abundance of work items and opportunities consume us for a sustained period of time, or in some cases "overtime" compared to a level flow of activity. More hands, eyes, thoughts, and processes are needed internally to support the business comprehensively. Throughout history and specifically to business, evidence has shown that organizations who proactively forecast and address their support needs as it pertains to growth, allow the ability to soundly match, scale and critically deliver to the business demand at disparate levels. Therefore, allowing the gift of growth to serve as a tangible asset.

World's Largest Beverage and Brewing Company Migrates to Atlassian ITSM Platform

By Praecipio Consulting on Dec 30, 2017 4:10:00 PM

Overview

Submitting, tracking and responding to incidents, service and change requests is a core capability required of every modern IT organization. Not only must they track and resolve issues from their users, but IT teams are also responsible for the oversight and support of technology assets themselves (i.e. laptops, servers, peripherals, etc.). Within the Information Technology Infrastructure Framework (ITIL), IT Service Management (ITSM) and IT Asset Management (ITAM) solutions have become critical components of day-to-day IT operations management at companies of all sizes and industries. But as software solutions like these have improved and business conditions have changed over time, legacy technologies have fallen behind modern capabilities and become blockers to organizational advancement. Migrating to newer, ITIL-based, extensible technology is the obvious solution in these increasingly common scenarios, but migrations require significant planning, communication, and collaboration.
