Every organization can encounter an issue with effective communication among all team members, data collection, or sharing. Due to a lack of knowledge, data loss, misunderstanding, some processes can be significantly slowed down. When several teams or departments are involved in the project’s completion, the problem may become even worse.
The top 3 reasons for seeking more automation, according to Adaptavist’s “State of the Atlassian ecosystem” research, are the need to optimize business processes (64% of survey participants), reduce operational costs (45% of survey participants), and improve tool integration(42% of survey participants).
