Pros
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.The integration is very good. We've more or less integrated with everything including reporting and registering.The product makes it easy to collaborate even though it can use some improvement in that area.The product's centralized database creates a single source of data for working groups so no data needs to be reconciled.The dashboard is the most valuable feature. The user experience is very good, it's easy to use.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.

It is a scalable solution. We have been able to manage larger scale projects easily using this solution.It is easily adaptable. In addition, it is easily used on mobile applications.We are able to know what we are doing, how much we have spent, how much time we've taken, and it tells us how much money is left for the project. It also tells us whether we are below or above our expenditures, whether we are below or above our budget.The key things are managing interactions, resource allocation, resource-leveling (enterprise) and as a collaborative tool, because we use it across multiple projects at a time.

Cons
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.The workflow needs improvement.Some key features like integration, big data warehousing and data modeling need work.The product could do with more flexible reporting.The initial setup could use improvement.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.This solution is not able to be integrated with other solutions because you have to upgrade it and pay for more licensing.n the next version I would like to see better reporting and safer plugins, as well as easier scalability.

It may be considered expensive.In terms of tech support, it took a long time for them to resolve a ticket.When a lot of users logged onto the site, it took a big toll on the service. Therefore, there is a scalability issue.Work needs to be done on collaboration with SharePoint.It has to be more user-friendly. For instance, there should be some assistance, like when you go to certain sites, people pop up and say, "Can we help you? What are you looking for?" It's not interactive enough.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The product is really not very expensive.The pricing continues to get higher.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 of the solution is expensive.This solution has a comparable pricing in comparison to other similar products on the market.

It has features that cannot be bought by other rivals, so cost does not matter.The licensing was procured before my involvement.I think they need more flexibility with licensing, because there are preconceived ideas that don't allow as much flexibility with the various licenses.
