Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
We use it for capacity planning. We need to gauge and assess whatever is coming to our pipeline and then everything comes to the pipeline, appears as a pic, and then based on that, we create the story points and we take it from there.
There are a lot of different plugins for Jira. Unfortunately, we did not test so many and the big pain point for us is the rigorous handling and the roadmap of Jira. We have a portfolio and structure plugin and we have our story map plugin in Jira
The feature that I have found most valuable is that it is a quite powerful user tracking system.
The most valuable aspect of this solution is its ability to connect everything together.
The feature that I have found most valuable is its ease of use. I don't need to train anyone to use it, I just give them access and they can use it to add comments, move their issues, change the status, monitor, read, and so on.
It's easy to understand, and easy to navigate.
The user story map is excellent. The features can be composed into stories and they can be allocated to each of the sprints in a program increment. It allows you to see all that in the user story map, and you have various dashboards to see the stories in various views. You can see them as a backlog view, for example, or you can see as an actual sprint view.
The most valuable feature is managing software development.
The solution's ease of use is its most valuable aspect.
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.
A more organized hierarchy is important. Reporting and JQL create issues for me. They do not completely cover the reporting part that I need to report in terms of my capacity to plan. In the same token, there is no record at this very moment to provide me with one export with epics story points, tasks, or issues and their sub-tasks at the same time.
The performance is not so good sometimes. I know that fully depends on the implementation and the IT environment of Jira or the version of Jira installed. The performance is sometimes not so good. I would like to have a better response time from the Jira server. And it fully depends on the administration side of the Jira.
Jira is a little bit old fashioned, it could be more user friendly.
I have to go through a lot of processes to consider it done. I have to log in then change the logins and make it interesting. It's not so good for testing.
There is a difference between their cloud and their server versions. The next-gen project, which is an advanced feature that allows you to visualize the road map of your delivery over multiple products and over time, is not available yet for the sever version. It appears there in the list, but it's still not right. I've tried to use it many times and I am watching the device show their tracker, but it seems they intentionally want this to increase the utilization of the cloud instead of the server. It is really a nice feature and it's a shame that we don't have it.
it would be helpful to have a better tutorial for learning and to have a better understanding of what the features are and what they do.
Whenever you edit a story, whatever you have changed takes a bit of time to save.
The help desk and services management features are in need of improvement.
It would be useful if the solution allowed us to share files or project schedules. You may get that with the cloud version. However, it's not available on the on-premises versions.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't feel that price is an issue.
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.
It has features that cannot be bought by other rivals, so cost does not matter.
The licensing was procured before my involvement.
