Implementing the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) with VersionOne and Jira®

Enterprise Agile Planning

Many agile methodologies focus on team planning and delivery activities. For the individual team, these approaches and tools have achieved success, but now struggle to scale across multiple teams and plan work at a more strategic level. The Scaled Agile Framework for the Enterprise® (SAFe®) addresses scaling issues by providing success patterns for organizations that ensure enterprises deliver software that meets its strategic and business objectives. 


Software tools that enable agile teams are important to enabling SAFe. But team-level tools, such as Jira, help with only a fraction of the Scaled Agile Framework.

To implement SAFe in the enterprise, you need a scalable Value Stream Management solution that ensures alignment and visibility while helping accelerate delivery. VersionOne does just that, providing a centralized environment that supports the constructs, practices, and metrics defined by SAFe, while simplifying the implementation of any SAFe configuration.


VersionOne seamlessly integrates with Jira Software and provides proven support for enterprises by enabling the implementation of SAFe beyond the team-level capabilities that Jira provides. With VersionOne, teams can continue to use Jira Software just as they do now, either as the sole team tool or alongside teams using other team-level tools. With Jira Software and VersionOne, you can obtain the visibility you need for planning, tracking, and reporting at all levels while providing an easy-to-use, lightweight experience for your teams.
