JIRA Software & JIRA Core are the industry standards for agile project management. Contrary to popular belief, these are not just for software developers, but really for any type of team. By organizing the flow of tasks, keeping staff informed about parallel efforts and prioritizing the most important pieces of your backlog, JIRA Software makes teams more efficient and effective. Whether your team uses scrum, kanban, or a hybrid agile-waterfall methodology, JIRA Software and JIRA Core keep projects focused. By creating a custom workflow attached to responsibilities and team members, project managers (or any supervisor) can assign tasks in a balanced, efficient way. JIRA also allows for progress tracking and performance measurement while a project is underway.
Crowd centralizes your identity management, so you can manage users from multiple directories – Active Directory, LDAP, G Suite – via a single admin console. It also allows you to control application permissions from the same place.
JIRA Service Desk brings the power of service and help desk management to any IT service organization. Behind the simple, easy-to-use customer facing interface lie the powerful tools of the JIRA suite, allowing any IT service desk the ability to organize its workflow, prioritize critical tasks and track delivery of services. With asset management and IT ticket management tools at your fingertips, JIRA Service Desk makes running an IT service organization just that much easier.
HipChat brings real time, remote collaboration to any organization. With a range of desktop and mobile configurations, HipChat allows team members to share their work, meet on the fly through a videoconferencing capability and easily post screenshots so everyone can see what’s going on. Searchable chat makes finding that key point easier, even months after it was posted. The best part? It’s all part of the Atlassian suite, allowing for simple integration with any existing Atlassian product or workflow. HipChat also meets your security needs, offering 256-bit SSL encryption security and managed access for third parties.
Confluence is an extremely powerful information and knowledge sharing, documentation, productivity and collaboration tool which brings together the collective knowledge of an organization. Unfortunately, it is often referred to as a “wiki,” which in case of Confluence would be a very limited view of its capabilities. Confluence provides a single place where team members can see the bigger picture of what everyone is working on, provide feedback and see where the road ahead will take them. Confluence is also valuable as a document management tool, allowing team members to collaborate on a single document while maintaining proper version control throughout.
Bitbucket is the premier solution for code collaboration. Controlling access, managing versions and keeping track of progress towards a goal are all much simpler with a common platform for the entire development team. Even when code gets large and unwieldy, Bitbucket offers large file storage and access solutions to keep everything on track and secure.
It was a pleasure working with Nextware on this project. We are scientists and appreciate attention to detail.

Their project management was superb and they conducted themselves with a great deal of professionalism. Highly recommended.
I had the pleasure to work with Nextware for 5 months on a Canto Cumulus solution for our marketing business. They are experts in the DAM field and the Nextware Technologies team did everything to implement a complete solution from end to end. With Nextware’s help we implemented a complete solution that does not require a roadmap for the next 3 years…well done!

Nextware Technologies has been a great software development partner for us.
