Jira Service Desk vs. Jira Service Management

To be fair, it’s not really a “this vs that” scenario, because Jira Service Management includes all the functionality of Jira Service Desk with richer ITSM capabilities. Jira Service Desk is now part of Jira Service Management.

How did we get here? We created Jira Service Desk in 2013, after we noticed that nearly 40% of our customers had adapted Jira to handle service requests. Thousands of teams managed requests through service desks, reduced manual effort, and set up workflows across their organizations in departments like HR and legal.

In 2020, we introduced Jira Service Management to further unlock development, IT operations, and business teams, so they can deliver exceptional service experiences.

Deliver exceptional service experiences

By bringing development and IT support teams together on one platform, it’s easy to collaborate across teams to rapidly address concerns.
