"Jira offers tools for managing projects using Agile methodology. I think it is good to encourage the development team to use Jira, so that the organization benefits from the proper execution of projects on time. Basically, it helps our organization to execute in a better way.""It is very configurable, and we can do whatever we want. Jira dashboards are also good, and we use them extensively. We also use the tracking mechanism extensively.""It's really smart how they connected third-party vendors into their own marketplace. You can create and add apps. Anybody can do it.""The most valuable feature is Jira Align, which is a plugin that helps you to understand the progress that is made against each epic.""I like that Jira allows you to customize the flow for an agile process and adapt it to your own flow.""The most valuable feature is managing software development.""We've found the scalability to be good.""Jira as a structure has Confluence for documentation, and for what it is offering it is a strong suit with Atlassian."

"It would be great to see Perforce's strategy is for implementing intelligence into the process via AI or ML. It's not clearly defined, at least not to my knowledge."

More Helix ALM Cons →

"Jira is raising their prices for the license, which is like a trap because many other providers offer services like Jira but for much cheaper.""If Jira would be interested in offering a SharePoint version, it would be beneficial.""The pricing is quite high.""The help desk and services management features are in need of improvement.""We'd like to use it with non-Agile projects in the future, however, right now, it is a very Agile-focused product.""It should have Behavior Driven Development (BDD). There should be an option to add macros to help with that. A lot of people are using it now, and it would be nice if there was a way in there to be able to generate the BDD of commands whenever you're creating a story.""I think that there is some ease of use that could be brought in to improve certain things.""If I'm comparing it to ALM Octane, the documentation is not as robust as ALM Octane's documentation. So, they can improve on the documentation side."

Information Not Available
  • "I don't feel that price is an issue."
  • "It is not too expensive. It is just comparative to other tools like Microsoft Teams."

  • "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."
  • "Its price is fine, but we would like it to be less expensive. We are paying on a yearly basis."
  • "We are a regional research and education institute. We're using the free license provided for educational institutes."
  • "One of my customers told me that they were receiving better pricing for a similar tool from Microsoft."
