Powerful Data Insights: Harness the Potential of Scatter Charts

The Scatter chart, also known as a scatter plot, is a powerful tool for visualizing relationships and dependencies between two data variables. It excels at displaying a large number of issues individually, making it effortless to spot outliers and delve deeper into their significance.

The Performance Objectives app offers an exceptionally versatile Scatter plot, which you can easily configure on any Jira standard dashboard using the ‘Scatter & Bubble charts’ gadget. With this chart, you can explore issue distribution based on any Jira metric, allowing you to identify anomalies and correlation patterns with other standard or custom metrics and fields. This capability provides valuable insights into your data, aiding in data-driven decision-making and performance optimization.

The ‘Scatter & Bubble charts’ gadget serves as a powerful tool for effectively visualizing a wide array of reports. Some examples of reports that can be vividly depicted with Scatter chart include:

  • Cycle time vs Lead time, grouped by Issue priority;
  • Time between ‘Created’ and ‘Resolved’ vs Time in Assignee “Unassigned”, grouped by SLA ‘Time to resolution’ Breach;
  • Time in status ‘Open’ vs Time in status ‘To do’;
  • Time to resolution ‘Breached’ vs Time to first response ‘Breached’, grouped by ‘Assignee’, etc.
