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.

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.
