Rally Software Review

I like the manner data is entered/viewed. It provides a range of out-of-the-box reports.

What is most valuable?

  • It is easy to use.
  • The flexible manner data is entered/viewed.
  • Good technical and company support.
  • Good range of out-of-the-box reports and easy-to-construct customized reports.

How has it helped my organization?

Parts of our business use Agile Central to deliver in an agile and features-based method. It is a much more user-friendly product compared to other products in market.

What needs improvement?

Pricing could be improved. Compared to JIRA, it is not cost effective for a large user base (1000 user plus). User licenses should be a group level within the company, rather than company level.

Jira is more cost effective once set up – no cost per user seat.

RALLY costs around $60/month/user seat

If you then multiply this cost by the number of users (let's say 2000 – 5000 users), it's a very large amount of money, not effective from a price point of view.

If we could get an Enterprise license at a reasonable price then, management's view of the product may change.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Agile Central for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has good availability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not have scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good. A local resource is always available, is knowledgeable and visits us on site when needed.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Excel sheets were previously used, prior to moving to an agile-based delivery.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was easy in conjunction with technical/local support to discuss the method of working in our company.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is good pricing for a small number of user licenses (i.e., 50 to 200) for outcome (effective usage including reporting).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated JIRA and others.
