Support for SAFe

No matter your approach to scaling agile, we’re here to help.

Jira Align is the only platform purpose-built for Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®). It comes with full, native support for SAFe 5.0, including configurable settings for the main SAFe configurations: Essential SAFe, Large Solution SAFe, Portfolio SAFe, and Full SAFe. Additionally, for SPCs and Agile coaches looking to ensure that the knowledge and education communicated in classroom settings extend into day-to-day practice, Jira Align provides a built-in Enablement Framework, allowing coaches to upload custom videos, create SAFe checklists, and leverage native coaching cards. Since Jira Align supports multiple portfolios in the same instance, there's no need to purchase multiple instances to customize the SAFe configuration for less or more advanced portfolios.
