This characterizes the software solution
With Jira Service Management, Atlassian offers a collaborative ITSM platform that helps organizations deliver IT services faster using ITIL best practices. Unlike traditional ITSM tools, which are complex, expensive and difficult to implement and change, the unique selling points of the Atlassian solution include its simple setup and configuration process and the ability to align service management processes with how teams work.
Of course, Jira can also be used to deploy standard help desk features such as HR management, IT support, automated ticketing or collaboration tools. Predefined best practices serve as a starting point for mapping workflows in service management processes with both an ITSM and ESM focus. In addition, Atlassian’s software is characterized by its comprehensive compatibility: More than 1,000 applications can be integrated with Jira, enabling users to align their helpdesk precisely with corporate objectives.
Against this backdrop, and given the high penetration rate of other Atlassian products such as Jira Software or Confluence in companies, development, operations and support teams often use a common (Atlassian-based) platform. This enables seamless, fast and straightforward collaboration between the teams, so that service requests can be processed significantly faster and change and release cycles can be shortened.

Atlassian offers various licensing models for Jira Service Management, which are fully transparent and can be viewed online on the company website. The core is a named-user license model, which is measured according to the number of agents (ticket processors).
On-premises, both a perpetual license model (with optional annual maintenance from the 13th month) and an enterprise-ready annual subscription model are offered. The SaaS offering also provides for a per agent model that can be configured on a monthly or annual basis in a variety of plans. The available SaaS plans differ in particular in terms of functionality (e.g. SLA availability or file storage space) and support.
Available License Models
The software can be obtained both in a SaaS model (operated by Atlassian on Amazon Web Services infrastructure) and as an on-premises license. The latter enables both operation in the customer’s own data center and independent operation of the solution on an IaaS/PaaS infrastructure of a cloud provider. Of course, both public and private cloud scenarios are possible.
Available operating Models
- Public Cloud (International)
- Private Cloud
