The Forecast integration with JIRA Server, makes you able to sync projects between Forecast and JIRA. Thus, you could for instance have your software developers use the JIRA solution they are used to, while your management team and others can use the more visual Forecast solution. This integration will make sure to keep data in-sync between the selected projects on each platform.

Look below for more info on what gets synced. 

How it works

Using Forecast for JIRA, your people scheduling, project planning, estimates, time tracking, and high level portfolio overview will always be synchronized with current development tasks and issues. Easily estimate and plan new features in Forecast, and they will automatically be synced to JIRA. Thus, critical information is shared and collaboration is effortless.
