Atlassian has expanded the focus of its https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html to target a wider range of business teams, such as HR, legal and facilities workers. 

https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html, launched six years ago to help IT teams track and resolve service requests quickly, has since been integrated with the Australian software company’s portfolio of apps, such as Confluence, as well as third-party apps like Slack. It is the fastest growing product in Atlassian’s portfolio. 

Although billed as a collaborative IT service management (ITSM) tool, many https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html customers have, in practice, adapted the application to deliver a variety of services to end users in the enterprise, Atlassian said.  With that in mind, the company today introduced new templates and workflows in https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html to encourage its use outside of IT. 

Templates make it easier to configure the application to better meet the demands from HR, facilities and legal teams. The “out-of-the-box” functionality allows HR or operations managers to create and maintain their own service desks with minimal involvement from IT, Atlassian said.

“HR and facilities teams can now leverage https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html to more easily manage tasks like employee on-boarding and fielding maintenance requests, and legal teams can shift from manually chasing down signatures to working collaboratively with an automated digital workflow,” the company said in a blog post.

The announcement comes as a range of vendors in the market, including ServiceNow and others, have also moved to expand their products with modules that support non-IT use, driving a trend around enterprise service management (ESM). So it makes sense for Atlassian to expand its app capabilities, said Charles Betz, a principal analyst at Forrester and co-author of “The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Service Management, Q4 2019,” which evaluates vendors in the ESM market. 

“At Forrester, we are very supportive of the extension of the service desk into broader non-IT-centric workloads, because every corporate function has a service aspect,” said Betz. “People need services from their HR department, they need services from facilities.”

Betz added that demand for non-IT use is growing quickly. A Forrester survey of 45 ESM customers showed that 78% were already using the tools for non-IT purposes. “And of that 78%, up to half of their transactional workload was non-IT workload,” he added.

Atlassian recently unveiled free and premium tiers of https://www.itnewsug.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/jira20service20desk.html, with users able to pay more for higher for 99.99% uptime SLA, unlimited storage and additional support.
