With healthcare expenditures in the United States ranking the highest in the world, quality procedures and practices are important to benchmark. Our client Castlight Health, a healthcare navigation company that develops comparison tools to highlight price and quality metrics for tests and procedures offered by healthcare providers, needed to migrate their existing server instance of Atlassian's Jira Software to the cloud model for operational efficiency gains and feature enhancements.

Legal and Business News Provider Implements Atlassian Stack and Standardizes SDLC

By Praecipio Consulting on Mar 23, 2021 9:32:19 AM

Overview

By utilizing our process expertise and knowledge of the Atlassian product suite, Praecipio Consulting standardized SDLC processes and implemented Jira, Jira Agile, Jira Service Desk, Confluence, and Stash for one of the world's largest legal and business news providers.

Ginkgo Bioworks, a leading biotech company, takes their living systems and organism product work to Atlassian Cloud

By Praecipio Consulting on Feb 25, 2021 9:42:00 AM

Overview

When internal resources are scarce and the upkeep of mission-critical applications becomes more of a cumbersome task that increases risk instead of reducing it, it's time to call in a professional. And that is exactly what our client Ginkgo Bioworks, an industry-leading biotech company that specializes in genetic engineering, decided to do. 

With upcoming initiatives and heavy business implications that were highly dependent on throughput, our client had an imperative need to move their current instances of Jira Software and Confluence to Atlassian's cloud offering. 

By completing the migration, our client would address the lingering issues revolving around their server versions of the aforementioned applications which were at end of life support (EOL), consistently experiencing major downtime, lacking dedicated resources to maintain the instance in terms of governance administration, and lacking experience with tool configuration as it was previously siloed to one of their many subsidiaries.

Jira Service Management Implementation for a Major U.S. University Gets an A+

By Praecipio Consulting on Jan 20, 2021 8:33:53 AM

Overview

When our client, a private college outside of Boston, needed a better way to track requests across the entire university, they turned to Jira Service Desk (now Jira Service Management) and our expert team of consultants for a solution. Previously burdened with an outdated legacy system that could not withstand the load (nor could be upgraded), this nationally ranked school required custom configuration of Jira Service Management and an accompanying Confluence knowledge base to provide the functionality and performance they needed. Used to track a variety of requests across the university, from facilities to equipment, our solution needed to meet their specific use case and requirements- and be completed by the start of their rapidly approaching fall semester.

By Praecipio Consulting on Jan 20, 2021 8:24:51 AM

Overview

No matter the industry or size of an organization, it is vital that businesses understand the importance of the user adoption process and the integral roles that technology and operations have in carrying out day-to-day business functions. Our client, a leading multinational retailer, needed to create a customized training program specifically for their teams in international markets. They required training content at both the team and management levels that focused on Agile, Jira and their in-house tools, Team Rosters and Roadmap. The curriculum not only had to be comprehensive in order to educate team members about these enterprise tools and share best practices, but the delivery had to be concise as well. We worked with the retail giant over a two-week period to determine the training content, program structure, delivery methods, as well as defining specific exercises for the modules and building out Lab Workbooks.

Agile Process Assessment For Leading Provider Of Tech-Enabled Healthcare Services

By Praecipio Consulting on Jul 20, 2020 10:08:01 AM

Overview

In the ever-changing world of IT, an organization's ability to perform cross-functionally and manage work to meet business demands is imperative to overall business success. Our client, who partners with leading health plans, healthcare providers, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies, wanted to bring in a professional services organization with in-depth expertise of Agile frameworks within the Atlassian ecosystem to evaluate their current usage of their Atlassian tools. Upon initial deployment of the Atlassian product suite, our client mostly leveraged out-of-the-box solutions based on Atlassian's recommendations, which had worked in the short-term but lacked scalability in critical areas as internal needs and priorities shifted towards broader organizational goals (including SAFe®).

Animation Studio Successfully Implements Jira Service Desk

By Praecipio Consulting on May 4, 2020 9:15:00 AM

Overview

Our client, one of the leading animation studios in the world, had utilized a system for years that they developed in-house to manage incoming work requests. Over time, they started to see issues arise with the functionality and integration of their platforms, such as unsatisfactory user experience, lack of customization, and the inability to automate repetitive tasks. In this particular case, the onboarding and offboarding processes became problematic and subsequently left their IT team members to manually create several tasks within their system each time an employee either joined or left the company.

Turning an Arduous Path of Agile Transformation into a Polished Deliverable

By Praecipio Consulting on May 9, 2019 11:21:00 AM

Overview

Creating and maintaining a shared understanding and mutual trust between densely populated departments of an organization can prove difficult without complete buy-in and effective collaboration. Teams can be separated by a number of variables, but a key point to highlight would be the way in which they're organized. Poor execution of organization can contribute to poor outcomes, especially if their supporting tools are misaligned with what they actually seek to accomplish as an organization.
