Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has an easy UI that can easily plug-in to every level.""This tool can be used anywhere and on any device.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility of the configuration, being able to configure it to suit your own needs.""The features that we find most valuable are the Workflow, Scrum workflow, and Dashboards.""The most valuable feature is the full integration between Work management, Source code management, and Test Automation.""The most valuable features are the customized Dashboard, Sprint Planning, and Automatic Notifications.""The most valuable feature is the Burndown Chart to see work that is outstanding.""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."

"I was able to create epics for our budgeting concerns and it helped me link everything together.""Reporting is much easier and faster than Micro Focus ALM, with CA AC built on web services... Also, the data is more granular when it comes to tasks, iterations, sprints, and releases."

Cons
"The CACD solutions on JIRA has some plugins, but they are not easily understandable or workable.""The user interface and views on different devices should be improved.""The plugin management needs a lot of work.""It would be very useful to have drag and drop time tracking.""The hierarchy for Jira tickets is too flat.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of integration with SVN, and auto-sync with the build release number.""The reporting needs to be improved.""The permissions can be challenging to get right."

More Jira Cons »

"I think there is a missing link with the development activity. Some developers are pushing in new versions of the code, but you cannot make the link from the user story to a specific application version.""One problem I see is that if there is a dependent user story - for example, if my team is working on one thing and there is a dependent user story from another team - we can have a dependency created but we don't know if there is a change of status from the other team. That is something which is very important for Agile Central to look into so that if the other team makes any changes we will be notified as well."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We feel that the product is a good value for the cost.""Licensing is on a monthly basis, and it is based on what you use.""To try this solution, use their cloud offering to get familiar. After that, it's in my view worth the money.""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."
