"It is a stable solution, and we have had no issues with stability."
"The design of the interface is clean and not too busy visually."
"I like that all of the team members on an agile team can use it. No one is in a separate application."
"I like that Jira allows you to customize the flow for an agile process and adapt it to your own flow."
"We integrate Jira with QRadar which is helpful."
"The most valuable feature of Jira is the integration with all the different Atlassian tools. They all integrate very easily."
"We have the best community to support any problems that we have."
"We use Jira mostly for task coordination and assignment. Additionally, scrum methodologies defined work items and bug issues. If we create any bugs all of them are fixed."
"Polarion ALM helps us better structure our customer requirements, and we can also validate the specs of our products against those. If anything changes on our side, we see the impact, and we can see the effect If a customer changes requirements."
"It meets with everybody's needs without having to grab plugins."
"Polarion ALM has some valuable tools for managing our targets and requirements. I think that's its best feature."
"The technical support is quite good."
"The way to configure it can definitely be improved. It is very difficult and complex to configure. Its configuration should be simplified."
"There needs to be a way to export a user story."
"Jira is a project management tracking tool, and it would be great to see integration with the source front or Azure DevOps, etc."
"Its search and reporting can be improved. They are already nice, but they can be further improved."
"Lacks some common building block approaches to certain things."
"The solution could improve by having its own tool for quality lifecycle management."
"Jira could improve the workflow, screen, and field configurability. They are lagging behind other solutions, such as Allegra in work system configurability."
"From a very software-centric or a lead developer standpoint, there should be the ability to work at multiple levels. You have epic stories and use cases or epic stories and tasks. It would be nice to be able to have multiple levels of stories and multiple levels of epics work with it. It's lacking a little bit there, and this is the big thing for me because it makes it difficult to do a real sprint when you're limited to one story per epic. It's really hard to isolate tasks at multiple levels to match the type of use cases you normally do. That's the biggest difficulty. Other than that, they've been improving year to year, and every version seems to have a level of improvement."
"The configuration aspect of the solution is not easy. A person needs a lot of programming knowledge in order to successfully handle the job."
"We use PTC Windchill, and Polarion ALM doesn't have native integration, so we had to purchase the connector to integrate it with Polarion ALM. We still haven't implemented it."
"One of Polarion's shortcomings would be planning. It can handle plans, but the planning feature is very basic."
"Technical support needs some improvement."
