What advice do you have for others considering JIRA Portfolio?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
We use the cloud deployment model. I'd advise others to start with a good analysis of the solution before implementing it. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
If you are looking for collaboration, then I would definitely recommend the product. It is one of the easiest and not very expensive. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best. I would rate the products overall as a seven. It could not get a ten. Seven leaves room for improvement.
I would rate it a seven out of ten. I don't know everything about the solution and every feature.
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.
I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
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 build your own solution on the APIs or you have to manage how you can configure in the current flows. My rating out of ten will be seven or eight. In the next version, I would like to see better reporting and safer plugins, as well as easier scalability.
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 a good process to any tool. The tools are more and more user-friendly. Even JIRA. When you want to implement something, keep it simple and it will work. With JIRA, you can do amazing things by developing connectors, embedding features, and adding new fields to create new things. In the end, it needs to fit the process. If the process is of poor quality, then your tool will look poor. For the most part, with several tools, you can do nearly anything. JIRA is a good tool. Perhaps a little bit too much to configure and adapt, because it can be adapted to any kind of customer's needs and it's not dedicated to a specific solution, but it does the job. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
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 bother using other tools. Realistically, it is good to look at the other options in the marketplace. There are many companies around offering add-ons, plug-ins, and applications that are quite good. The biggest lesson I have learned in using JIRA is that you should not start with Excel. It is a good idea to evaluate your business plan and look forward to growth by choosing the right solution.
