What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with the other Atlassian products such as Bitbucket, Confluence, and HipChat.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution fits very well into our agile product management environment.

What needs improvement?

The current method for dealing with requirements management involves another solution, which is costing more for the users. Traceability between higher level and lower level requirements in the hierarchy is something else that is not fully… more »

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

There is a community edition available, but if the price were lower for the addons then more people would use the full version.

What other advice do I have?

Atlassian is a market leader in this segment and I would definitely recommend this solution. I would just like to see more of the features available at a more reasonable cost, which would keep more people from going to the community… more »

What is most valuable?

The main power of this tool is the integration between the different products of the Atlassian suite. We have good integration with work management and Software build automation (Bamboo).This is the major strength from this provider.

What needs improvement?

For project management, the scheduling of the project tasks should be simplified because it's complex and too rigid using the Atlassian Portfolio .

What other advice do I have?

My first recommendation would be to think about what you want to use the data modeling for? Do you want to have organization per project, per customer, per product, per business? This is my recommendation, think about how to make the modeling work with what you want to do. The scheduling feature is too complex. They should make the project management part of the course plan activity easier. I… more »

What is Atlassian ALM?

How to use Atlassian to manage application lifecycle

Atlassian builds software to pull together all the elements of application lifecycle management. Product management, developers, Q/A, dev ops, and business stake holders all have their own ways of interacting with application lifecycle management and Atlassian splits up the process into a few buckets.

1) Collaborate to plan and envision work

Atlassian's Confluence is a collaboration platform for building and driving consensus. Call stake holders in to give approval, comment on, and share pages and integrate with the rest of the development toolchain.

2) Build and track roadmaps

Atlassian's JIRA Software offers incredibly flexible project management with custom workflows, plugins, and high visibility rollups through JIRA Portfolio. Issues can be embedded right in confluence, or be used to kick off new branches in version control. Keep everyone on the same page with project progress. 

3) Track and deploy code

Atlassian's Bitbucket is the world's most robust Git solution. The ability to deploy multiple-nodes with failover, global mirroring for super fast clones, and powerful code review control set it apart from competition. Bitbucket also has a mature plugin and hooks system that allows extensions and connection to a suite of CI software. 

4) Support and Iterate

Track support requests, bugs, and route users in the right direction with JIRA Service Desk. With the same custom workflow engine as JIRA Software, a tight integration with the rest of the stack, and a knowledge base function make it a powerful addition to the ALM stack. 

5) Tie it together

ChatOps helps tie every part of the ALM together. Get stake holders in the same room to manage a project, teams in the same page to manage their work, or plugin automated members to report on CI status, pull requests, page changes in Confluence, or bug reports. Like every piece of Atlassian's ALM there is a mature API for extending plugins and everything can be hosted behind your own firewall.
