What is most valuable?

The best feature for us is that it is a centralized database. Everyone has access to it. It is a single source of tools. We no longer have to clumsily copy and reconcile Excel spreadsheets.

How has it helped my organization?

This product has helped our organization by allowing us to stop using Excel. We now have one team source as a centralized database. We no longer have to reconcile data or deal with differences in… more»

What needs improvement?

Generally, I'm a happy customer when it comes to this product. The product's speed could be improved. However, there is really no software that can ever be fast enough. I would like to see more… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

JIRA was inexpensive in the beginning when we first took the solution on. After we bought it, the prices went up. Scaling it as our company grew was a little like making purchases from a drug dealer… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Excel, which is not a solution. We were a new company at the time and it was easy enough to manage through Excel. When our needs grew and it was impossible to use Excel, we changed… more»

What other advice do I have?

I like JIRA portfolio the most out of any tool I use for my job. It is my most favorite tool. It was easy to get used to using it and I highly recommend it. Personally, I say: use it. Go for it. Don't… more»

What is most valuable?

It is difficult to narrow it down to features. It's one solution as a whole and to point out certain features is complicated.

How has it helped my organization?

There hasn't been an improvement because we were using JIRA solutions before.

What needs improvement?

There could be many things that could be improved but we haven't been working with it long enough to accurately find the weak points. The pricing of add-ons could be improved. You should have the… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing of the solution is expensive. When you install any add-on, you have to pay for each and everyone who is declared on the system in order to have the add-on working. If you have anywhere… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are dealing with several products and clients, and each product has it's good points and it's weak points. I don't have an opinion because I think that a good process does the job and you can apply… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other options but JIRA was already in place, which is one of the reasons we stayed with JIRA.

What is most valuable?

We use all of the features. The most valuable features are the reporting of the speed of the team's progress and the long-term organization of our projects in the timeline.

How has it helped my organization?

Before JIRA, we used to organize our software with Bitbucket but now, with JIRA, it is more efficient to organize all the work in the timeline, make long-term plans for one or two months, know what… more»

What needs improvement?

I think that front-end development is a little bit buggy in some cases. Some of the features take a while to respond and some need to be more clear. Now we are using next-generation projects, so it's… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have nine people using it so we have a standard cost of approximately $150 dollar per year. There are only additional costs if you exceed the limit of users, then you start paying by user. The cost… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were previously using Atlassian Bitbucket. Bitbucket is only good for tracking down issues but it is not helpful to organize everything and see how fast you are proceeding. With JIRA, there are a… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely suggest going for it. I would rate JIRA Portfolio an eight out of ten. To make it a perfect ten it should have a better user interface, be more clear, and more responsive.

What is most valuable?

The workflow configurations of this solution is what I value most.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution has improved our organization by allowing us to create our own customization. We can track the live status of all the flows on one page and get a single view of our progress.

What needs improvement?

I would say that there's a lot of reporting on the dashboard so something that can be improved is the project level visibility because it is a little unclear. Especially when you compare it to JIRA Central.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We currently use three solutions simultaneously, namely JIRA and Octane.

What other advice do I have?

JIRA is a very flexible solution, so if you are a mid or small-sized team, it is very useful for the team. When you have a higher scale of work, I would say the portfolio management and the reporting need to improve. You either have to… more»

What is most valuable?

The dashboard is the most valuable feature. The user experience is very good, it's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The stakeholders have to decide to use JIRA and that's the problem. Not all the stakeholders are in touch with JIRA but we need their budget for the whole team to get the opportunity to use JIRA. It's not a problem with the tool, it's our organization. Some of the stakeholders have other opinions and they like to use other tools. The initial setup could use improvement.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. I don't know everything about the solution and every feature.

What is most valuable?

All of the charts, including the Burndown chart, are very useful for us. The graphics and the resolution of the work are very good. The JIRA command line is also a very valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

We would like to have an option for a secure board that we can give to our clients that would allow them to see certain aspects during development, but not so much that they can steal all of our information. A dashboard specifically for customers would improve this solution. Sometimes I have a… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have used JIRA in this company for many years but we just recently started in this department. In this department, we used to use another solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What do you think of JIRA Portfolio?

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for Jira Portfolio is mainly resourcing capacity managements.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows me to do the capacity management and it allows me to qualify my ethics, and that's what the capabilities I was searching for in a solution like Jira Portfolio.

What needs improvement?

When I want to embed Jira Portfolio in a complete HLI cycle, I'm missing things to evaluate my ethic into my value stream.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In a PC environment, it is quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For the scalability, in my opinion, with Jira Portfolio you don't need to scale that much because it's…
