“Atlassian solutions balance power and ease of use. There’s not many tools that do that well and continue to meet your needs as you grow.”

Director of Program Management, VSCO


Developer and agile expertise

ClickUp is not designed for developers or with agile best practices in mind

Jira Software is purpose-built to help your dev teams establish a single source of truth so they can collaborate better and move faster. Jira Software is also an industry leader for agile teams with dozens of agile templates, reports, and best practices to help you be successful within our products and beyond.

Products tailored to the needs of your team

ClickUp thinks one product can solve the needs of every team

Every great team needs tools specially crafted to their needs. That’s why we have Jira Software for your software team, Jira Work Management for your business teams, and Jira Service Management for your IT and ops teams. Combined together, our platform connects the dots between work happening across your org.

“With Atlassian, we have Dev and Ops on a single platform.”

Julian Dunn
Product Manager, Chef.io


Scale your way of working

ClickUp doesn't scale

Every organization needs software that can scale beyond a single team. Jira Software offers the flexibility to choose whether you standardize on a way of working across teams or give teams autonomy to design their own ways of working. Mix and match however your organization needs.

Advanced roadmaps teams share an initiative

“When you have lines of business across the world, it's a beast to organize our work. Having one system of record that works across all of those is invaluable.”

Arthur Meloy
VP of Innovation and Development Transformation, NCR
