A valuable feature from my side would be the comparison corporization.I like the way this solution is structured.The biggest improvement would be in the transparency we have now. We have very complex products. We make whole systems with difficult and diverse areas such as hardware, software, mechanical and printing, etc. To get the overview of all the requirements into a system, at that sizing, is the main advantage we have in the organization now.

Cons
We would like to see the integration of a lite-version of Confluence, just to manage some of the templates and documents.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 is stable enough but if you would like to work with more requirement objects, then you will get timeouts.If we have more than one thousand work items in one live-book then it becomes almost unusable.The one thing I would mention is the license policy is a little bit difficult. For different roles, you will need different license models. That seems a little bit difficult for us. Especially when you introduce such a complex system, you want to know the right way is to do licensing. It's not clear what that best way would be. The solution will be here for a long time, and I just think it could be more clear.

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.
