Check out this post discussing the requirements and solution one developer has found. It's hard not to be pleased to see that JIRA has been flexible enough to cover so many bases.

Newsweek Bulletin: IT & Communications

When NASA needed a project collaboration and information-sharing system for its Kennedy Space Center, it turned to Atlassian's Confluence technology. So did Deutsche Bank.
