Find out what your peers are saying about IBM Engineering Workflow Management vs. JIRA and other solutions. Updated: July 2019.
384,324 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Work distribution among team members and accountability for completion with a clearer picture.
All of the features work together to provide a powerful holistic solution - from the dashboard all the way through to security.
Agile templates give us a standard methodology for every Agile project. Also, the ability to create our own object types and linkages to features/epics allows us to enhance the verification of feature readiness.
Issue linking has enabled teams to trace issues.
Transparency of development projects, as well as approval processes for some business projects, has improved massively.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the source linking on the commit level to git.
This solution assists us with being able to quickly and easily start sprints and keep accurate track of them, including billing using a time-tracking add-on.
The most valuable feature is the Burndown Chart to see work that is outstanding.
The most valuable features are the customized Dashboard, Sprint Planning, and Automatic Notifications.
The most valuable feature is the full integration between Work management, Source code management, and Test Automation.
The features that we find most valuable are the Workflow, Scrum workflow, and Dashboards.
Teams need clearer pictures of resource availability in charts and dashboards along with plans.
Some administrative tasks are difficult to perform. These could be simplified.
The only thing that JIRA doesn't for us is release management in a way that I can create a list of versions easily.
My main concern is the administration of projects, especially user groups, and this requires root access rights but there is no concept of layered admin rights.
Backlog pruning and visualization are poor.
The permissions can be challenging to get right.
The reporting needs to be improved.
This solution would be improved with the inclusion of integration with SVN, and auto-sync with the build release number.
The hierarchy for Jira tickets is too flat.
It would be very useful to have drag and drop time tracking.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing: The solution cost is high and should be brought down to increase competition.
It's an expensive investment to make, so the decision should be driven on individual requirements.
To try this solution, use their cloud offering to get familiar. After that, it's in my view worth the money.
Licensing is on a monthly basis, and it is based on what you use.
We feel that the product is a good value for the cost.
I understand JIRA is quite expensive.
It does not cost that much.
Almost everybody uses JIRA nowadays because it is the most cost-effective solution.
