JIRA Previous Solutions

We switched because the visualization is a great help. So, really to transfer from a physical Scrum board to a virtual Scrum board implemented in JIRA, as well as so teams can work with us, and collaborate with us, on a Story to produce a result. Recently we tried to work with PDC task management. As a team, we had to learn it. It's possible as well, but not as easy and flexible as JIRA. View full review »

Senior Quality Assurance at Pegb Technology
I have used a couple of solutions, but I have used this one for my entire career in working with different teams. I have had to integrate my own solution as well, but the majority of my work has been using this product. View full review »

I used just Excel sheets. JIRA was a major improvement for a variety of reasons listed in other answers. View full review »

Everywhere that I worked, we started by using spreadsheets, then we moved to some free tool, and finally to JIRA. View full review »
QaAutomac775
QA Automation at a tech vendor with 501-1,000 employees
We used Bugzilla but its UI was not as user-friendly. The end-user experience was very basic because it's a free tool. It's important to us that QA be able to track the issues and, of course, for the developers to be able to track all the tasks. So we're looking for the balance between performance of the user interface and the UI for the other workers in the company. View full review »

Gianni Rigoni
Digital Engagement Manager with 10,001+ employees
We have two organizations. One is development, and they work JIRA. And the other is the business, which is responsible for testing. At the moment, we are going in the direction of DevOps and more Agile, and we would like to merge our tools together. The important criteria when selecting a vendor, in my opinion, are that the vendor should be flexible, cheap, and the support should be excellent. View full review »

KevinCharlton
Senior IT Test Manager at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
I have prior experience with what was originally called HP Quality Center but is now called Micro Focus ALM. In comparing Micro Focus ALM vs Jira,I did not find it as intuitive or user-friendly as JIRA. I also have experience with and have compared CA Agile Central vs JIRA, but my preference is always JIRA because it is more established and very intuitive to work with. View full review »
