Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is good at requirements management and test management.""The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface."

More Jama Connect Pros →

"Most of my work is keeping track of what's been going on and identifying what is blocking future work. What I like about this solution is you can create a consolidated customized dashboard out of your files to identify what's been going on and identify who has how much data assigned to them.""The solution is very scalable and flexible.""Kanban boards are most valuable""One of the most valuable features is querying because the jQuery function is very good. Additionally, we can create good designs very easily.""It's a very complete product overall.""Jira is flexible and accessible for the end-user. It lets users track their requests. The look and feel are good for our purposes.""We use it for capacity planning. We need to gauge and assess whatever is coming to our pipeline and then everything comes to the pipeline, appears as a pic, and then based on that, we create the story points and we take it from there.""It's an open-sourced product that is easy to customize."

More Jira Pros →

"I have inquired about pricing for this solution but have not yet heard anything, so their response time in this regard is something that should be improved.""The initial setup could be better, it's complicated."

More Jama Connect Cons →

"The GUI should have much better features like more graphical illustrations. There are some cases or benchmarks that we are trying to capture into a dashboard GUI's graphical summary, but unfortunately JIRA is not able to do that.""Lacks field-level permission in the cloud version.""I would prefer it if the solution was more intuitive.""Slow when integrating with other components.""Could offer an improved user experience.""Having more seamless integration with Confluence would really help us track our product management activity and other product details in one place.""I'd like some more features around software testing. I'd like to see some more stuff done around data testing. That's what I'm most interested in.""It should be connected to ServiceNow."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost seems very competitive with other offerings."
  • More Jama Connect Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
  • "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."
