The integration between their tools is awesome. Obviously JIRA Service Desk uses JIRA in the back, which gives you all the powers of a regular JIRA project.
But that's not all! You can link your JIRA (Service Desk) with Confluence (knowledge base), HipChat (quick and easy communication via chat), and much more.
The product is only a couple of years old and has been growing a lot. Until a couple of months ago we were really missing the WYSIWYG editor for customers logging a request but as usual Atlassian has resolved that issue by releasing a new version that includes this WYSIWYG editor.
Basically the way I would start evaluating every piece of software. Start small, grow big. So start using JIRA Service Desk within a single team with a small amount of end-users they are supporting. Believe me when I say, these end-users will start asking to use JIRA Service Desk at other places as well. (At least that's what happend at my company)
