Pros
"Jira as a structure has Confluence for documentation, and for what it is offering it is a strong suit with Atlassian.""I like it for team collaboration and task management. I also like its analytics and dashboards.""A most valuable feature involves the ability to customize the entries and to update them quickly.""The solution offers a lot of plugins.""It has enabled us to keep track of features or projects. Previously, we used to manually keep track in Office. We now have a centralized repository for all the information.""The pricing of the product is very good. It's not too expensive""The solution offers up great transparency that makes it possible for everyone inside the departmental organization to see what's happening.""The ability to design your own workflows is a great feature."

Cons
"Having more seamless integration with Confluence would really help us track our product management activity and other product details in one place.""I would like to see more integration available with more tools.""I find the dashboard to be Jira's most problematic feature.""Could be more stable with more integrations.""Stability is an area of concern and it needs improvement, otherwise, it's a good product.""The reporting tool and the approval tool need work.""It would be ideal if the solution could be available as a mobile application.""it would be helpful to have a better tutorial for learning and to have a better understanding of what the features are and what they do."

More Jira Cons →

"One of Polarion's shortcomings would be planning. It can handle plans, but the planning feature is very basic.""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.""Technical support needs some 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.""The ease-of-use could be improved a little."

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."
  • More Jira Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The license model is okay for large companies but would be quite expensive for smaller enterprises."
  • "If the pricing would come down and it was more affordable then we wouldn't have to switch."
  • "Our license for Polarion ALM is yearly. And it's not the cheapest tool that we've looked at. So if we had made our decision purely based on the licensing cost, we wouldn't have selected Polarion."
