Cons
When you are not working on it every day it is not very intuitive.I have come to the conclusion that if you are considering migrating from DOORS to DNG, don't! Instead of spending 100's to 1000's of hours doing migrations, invest those hours in a DXL programmer to make DOORS do what it isn't doing for you now.Be very careful how you load your DNG server. There are limits to the number of artifacts a server can handle.As a web tool, DNG can be difficult to use if the server is loaded or your network connection to it is saturated.

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.The plugin management needs a lot of work.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of maintenance is €20,000 to €30,000 ($22,000 to $33,000 USD) and there are no additional fees.You are going to need a beefy server and a fat network pipe to it in order to make DNG and its companion tools work well for users.

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.
