We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

Cons
t is rather slow, so the speed of the process and consuming information should be improved. It doesn't have a nice way of viewing information. We would like to see better interfaces for consuming information.Test management can be improved. It's not so scalable. The user interface needs to split things into small projects.

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.

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.
