Managing Programs is very easy on Kendis compared to Jira and Confluence

Jira is great when working at the team level. But when it comes to managing large programs, program increments, teams, and managing dependencies in Jira you can feel very limited. Using Confluence with Jira often helps but it requires a lot of manual work and is highly time consuming. Kendis equips you with the capabilities to smoothly manage your Program Increment on top of Jira without any administrative effort.
