We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Its dashboards and reports are the most valuable. We are able to share these reports and other information with our leadership."
"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."
"It is a little rigorous in its methodology and is cumbersome. For example, I have a hard stop date and I would like a project to end by a specific date, but this is not how this solution works. It sorts of spits out the project date based on your resource availability, dependencies, and so on. This sort of project planning works in theory, but that's not always the case. It also relies heavily on resources entering their time into the system, that is, how much time they worked on each of the tasks so that it can sort of consistently update the project. I know that in a lot of organizations, including ours, it is almost impossible to get them to track the time. In terms of additional features, they can include more integration with Microsoft because integration is going to be a key functionality."
"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."
