Paradox Interactive's Integration Success (Jira<-> DevOps integration)

Paradox Boosts Game Dev with Azure DevOps -Jira Integration

Client Profile

Paradox Interactive, the Stockholm-based video game publisher renowned for grand strategy titles like Europa Universalis, Stellaris, and Crusader Kings, has been a key player in the gaming industry since 2004.

Key Stakeholders

  • Project Lead: Zsolt Suto
  • Application Liaison: Sarah Lager

Objective of Integration/Sync (Jira <-> Azure DevOps)

The primary goal was to ensure seamless collaboration between the studio handling "Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2" and Paradox’s QA team. The integration challenge stemmed from the studio's reliance on Microsoft’s suite for project management, while Paradox utilized Atlassian products. Getint was implemented to bridge this gap, enabling both teams to work within their preferred systems, thereby reducing complexity and workload.
