More Jama Connect Pros →

"Azure is an advantage when working with other Microsoft solutions.""It is good for the purpose it is designed for.

Cons
"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 user management in the solution could improve.""The tool has a logical link between epic feature, user story, and task, but when you try to generate a report to show the delivery progress against a feature, it is not easy. To see the percentage completion for a feature or progress of any delivery, it is not easy to draw a report.""I think Azure DevOps could improve the traceability or business intelligence about the execution of DevOps processes.""They have to add more features such as schedules and more flexibility in the platform.""I would like to automate notifications on sprint planning. When we are getting to the end of sprint planning, we would be automatically notified.""The dashboards need bigger with better extensions and layouts. There isn't a workflow related to the statuses on the dashboard. It only lists the statuses. You can have one started, and once done, but everything in between is only in progress and could be in any order you want, it lacks flow.""Project management could be improved.""It should be able to handle the different types. There is ecosystems engineering, and there is software applications engineering. There is a need to bring these teams together, but the disciplines don't integrate very well, and so it won't work."
