3-. For Sylvie Veilleux, Dropbox CIO, enterprise agility and the sudden shift to distributed teams go hand in hand.
“Jira is a powerful platform that enables developer productivity. It’s also a place where we create visibility on the work being done when it will be shipped, and what dependencies exist, as well as status on progress and open risks,” Veilleux says. “And it’s an excellent planning tool. I have a saying: ‘If it isn’t in Jira, it does not exist.’”
