Jira Jenkins Integration

Why are Jira and Jenkins often poorly integrated?

However, the integration between the two products is often limited to the visualization of Jenkins Builds in Jira and the possibility to trigger Jenkins jobs from Jira. 

While companies usually have budgets to purchase new tools, they often lack the money or the time when it comes to integrating them together properly. And well integrated tools can save large organizations literally millions every year!
