More IBM Engineering Workflow Management Pros »

"Issue linking has enabled teams to trace issues.""The most valuable features in Jira are the dashboard, reports, and boards that help us to control the advancement of the project.""The most valuable feature is that it is somewhat flexible.""This is our way of communicating with different teams. We are a global company. I am based in San Diego, for example. A lot of the BAs are based in Paris. The development team is based in Minsk. We absolutely need to be in constant communication and on the same page.""The most valuable feature is project management.""The solution is extremely stable.""The solution offers up great transparency that makes it possible for everyone inside the departmental organization to see what's happening.""The most valuable features of this solution are workflow and reporting."

Cons
"Teams need clearer pictures of resource availability in charts and dashboards along with plans.""The solution is very heavily vendor dependent."

More IBM Engineering Workflow Management Cons »

"The only thing that JIRA doesn't for us is release management in a way that I can create a list of versions easily.""We would like to see the integration of a lite-version of Confluence, just to manage some of the templates and documents.""It's also difficult to migrate through, things don't always tie-up. It's not easy to use.""Jira has recently updated their UI, but more can be done to make it even better.""When you first start to use the interface, it is confusing.""A lot of the user interface could be updated.""In general, although we use JIRA, we never really learned how to use it properly. The learning curve of the solution is high. It has a lot of power, and yet we don't understand its capabilities.""We would like to see integration between Tempo and Jira."

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."

More IBM Engineering Workflow Management Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I don't feel that price is an issue.""It is not too expensive. It is just comparative to other tools like Microsoft Teams.""I am not sure if the client is using a commercial version. I think it is on a per-user basis, and it is around 15 Canadian dollars for a user, but I'm not sure. It also has a free version.""As a company, we get a subsidized price, and it's lower than what's quoted on their website.""We are using the enterprise license which is nice because it ensures that we always have the latest versions of Jira software.""Its price is fine, but we would like it to be less expensive. We are paying on a yearly basis.""We are a regional research and education institute. We're using the free license provided for educational institutes.""One of my customers told me that they were receiving better pricing for a similar tool from Microsoft."
