Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It makes work visible, so everybody knows where everything is. It uses Kanban, and that makes work visible.""We use the board and card hierarchies in terms of sprints so that we can see if we have cross-functional teams that are working on the same projects together, especially when projects have dependencies. The parent-child relationship within cards is really nice so that we can see what kind of dependencies there are when we're trying to get projects finished.""My team specifically uses our board for all of our Remedy tickets that come in. We had a card for every ticket that we get, and we're able to add the link to that specific ticket there.If I'm out of office, for example, and someone else needs to work a ticket or someone is being contacted to work on a ticket, I don't have to sign on it. Someone else can easily access that ticket because I put the link in there. It's nice. It has a lot of great functionality in there.""Using the tool seems to save time versus trying to do things in a regular manner. It is highly collaborative; everybody can see things in one place. It is a highly functional, but pretty simple tool. That is hard to find: A tool that has a lot of functions, but is also simple."

"The graphics and the resolution of the work are very good.""With JIRA, you can do amazing things by developing connectors, embedding features, and adding new fields to create new things.""The developers can simplify tasks and each one of them can undertake a task and then they continue with development. Our processes are more efficient and easier for our manager and developers to track them. Their work is more organized.""The dashboard is the most valuable feature. The user experience is very good, it's easy to use.""The product's centralized database creates a single source of data for working groups so no data needs to be reconciled.""The product makes it easy to collaborate even though it can use some improvement in that area.""The integration is very good. We've more or less integrated with everything including reporting and registering.""The customized workflows we can define are very valuable. JIRA's private projects is very useful as well. There are also a lot of plugins that they provide."

"Technical support has been excellent. On that side, Microsoft is very good. The customer support of Microsoft has really improved this past year. On the cloud side also we are very satisfied because it offers very good support.""Azure enables us to create a staging environment through to a production environment in an easier way and then get the code and run that.""I like the entire tool because it is a one-stop-solution for DevOps.""The solution is easy to implement and easy to use.""There are a lot of helpful features available for tracking dependencies.""Fields can be customized and the reporting is good.""Azure is an advantage when working with other Microsoft solutions.""The initial setup is quick and easy."

Cons
"I do not know what it can do in the area of scrum. Maybe it has that functionality. I have never tried to set it up. You think of LeanKit from the perspective of Kanban. I don't know if there is a template for scrum, a scaled agile framework, or any of those scaling frameworks.""Being able to track actual time on cards or sprints, instead of using just the planned start and stop date, would also be useful. I would like to see something like JIRA has with actual sprint starts and stops.""The ability to report on customizable fields and third-party extensions needs improvement. I'd like to see more of those being able to be used. I don't know how that works for Planview, but just getting a little bit more added there would be nice.""The integration with the Enterprise One product is probably an area for improvement. It's not really broken. It's just that it is such a handy tool and a great way to visually manage things. There is a very limited hookup/integration between Enterprise One, which is the master Planview tool, and LeanKit. While they are looking at this on their roadmap, it definitely needs to happen. There is a lot of opportunity there."

More Planview LeanKit Cons »

"If I get a feature but there is not a user story, and I want to know which epic it belongs to, it is really hard to figure out.""This solution is not able to be integrated with other solutions because you have to upgrade it and pay for more licensing.""I think that front-end development is a little bit buggy in some cases. Some of the features take a while to respond and some need to be more clear.""The initial setup could use improvement.""The product could do with more flexible reporting.""Some key features like integration, big data warehousing and data modeling need work.""The workflow needs improvement.""I think their view needs to be more user friendly. The UI makes it difficult to find things. Secondly, the configuration is very complex. JIRA should help people find out what configuration they are using."

More JIRA Portfolio Cons »

"They do very frequent releases, there's a complete change in UI kind of stuff. Sometimes it feels like they change it too often.""The solution could work to improve their reporting.""There are certain areas in Azure DevOps that are better in other products.""One thing I would note is that it's hard to know what is included or not in the product. Especially when you begin to try and compare it to other solutions. When you go to a site like VersionOne, they tell you Azure DevOps doesn't have this or that, and when you go to Microsoft, it says VersionOne doesn't have this or that. They could do a better job of laying out exactly what is on offer so customers know going in exactly what they'll get.""Improving the metrics that are readily available on the dashboard would be very helpful.""Proper Gantt charting should be a feature that is included because as it is now, we have to create it ourselves.""Azure has not yet advanced to the performance level of the other major competitors and is missing integration with important technologies.""The functions have too much dependency right now, so it makes it really, really hard to upgrade and make a change in the code."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"In general, Planview's cost structure is reasonable. You get quite a lot of functionality for the license cost that you get."

More Planview LeanKit Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing of the solution is expensive.""We only have nine people using it so we have a standard cost of $150 dollar per year. There are only additional costs if you exceed the limit of users, then you start paying by user. The cost is significantly higher.""The pricing continues to get higher.""The product is really not very expensive.""We pay our fees annually, although monthly payments are also available."

More JIRA Portfolio Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's a good tool, quite rich, it has a lot of features, and quite a lot of analytical capabilities which are built on top of it so that you can see how your projects are going and all that stuff. It's a good tool.""There is a licensing fee of $6/user per month.""The price is cheaper than Jira and some of the other competing tools.""It is the least expensive product in this class.""I find that the pricing is good, and it is competitive with the other vendors in the market.""Microsoft Azure DevOps is free for up to five users and allows you to track a maximum of three projects.""It is a subscription model and I only pay for what I use.""The price of this solution is fair."
