What is the difference between Jira Software and Jira Service Management?
You can create and collaboratively edit tickets in JSM and Jira Software, as well as add comments and change the status of an issue.
Differences between JSM and Jira
Nevertheless, there are some differences that should be taken into account: Jira software is designed specifically for software teams. With plenty of workflow mechanisms, agile teams can create their tasks in sprints. Scrum or Kanban boards serve as an overview.
Jira Service Management, on the other hand, is designed specifically for IT and service teams. It provides them with everything they need for problem, change and incident management. Jira Service Management offers SLAs (service level agreements).
While both Jira Service Management (JSM) and Jira Software excel in providing comprehensive project insights, it’s worth noting that the available reports and dashboard gadgets differ between the two, offering unique capabilities for teams to visualize and analyze their data.
