Most Helpful Review
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.
Transparency of development projects, as well as approval processes for some business projects, has improved massively.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the source linking on the commit level to git.
This solution assists us with being able to quickly and easily start sprints and keep accurate track of them, including billing using a time-tracking add-on.
The most valuable feature is the Burndown Chart to see work that is outstanding.
The most valuable features are the customized Dashboard, Sprint Planning, and Automatic Notifications.
The most valuable feature is the full integration between Work management, Source code management, and Test Automation.
The features that we find most valuable are the Workflow, Scrum workflow, and Dashboards.
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.
The only thing that JIRA doesn't for us is release management in a way that I can create a list of versions easily.
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.
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
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.
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.
