Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Jira as a structure has Confluence for documentation, and for what it is offering it is a strong suit with Atlassian.""Great for tracking my development team's productivity.""A stable solution with no unplanned downtime.""It is a stable solution, and we have had no issues with stability.""It's very simple to change the workflow and adapt it. Jira is very user friendly for the agent and the user.""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.""This is our way of communicating with different teams. We are a global company. I am based in San Diego, for example. A lot of the BAs are based in Paris. The development team is based in Minsk. We absolutely need to be in constant communication and on the same page.""I like that all of the team members on an agile team can use it. No one is in a separate application."

Cons
"There needs to be more integration and connectivity.""There could be some improvements in the project management and portfolio level features.""The performance is not so good sometimes. I know that fully depends on the implementation and the IT environment of Jira or the version of Jira installed. The performance is sometimes not so good. I would like to have a better response time from the Jira server. And it fully depends on the administration side of the Jira.""There needs to be easier integration with third-parties — personally, this is the biggest issue for me.""It can have a more high-level view of portfolios. It has quite detailed views, but I would like a high-level view of portfolios. We want to integrate Jira with Microsoft Active Directory, and I don't know how easy or hard it is going to be. I don't know if Jira supports this. We are starting that integration in the last quarter of this year. I hope to find all the required tools for this integration.""Some small issues with stability.""This solution could be improved by including a different model for the overall planning perspective. There's a Jira portfolio that we aren't using. The only challenge we're facing is that we cannot see the overall planning.""There is a difference between their cloud and their server versions. The next-gen project, which is an advanced feature that allows you to visualize the road map of your delivery over multiple products and over time, is not available yet for the sever version. It appears there in the list, but it's still not right. I've tried to use it many times and I am watching the device show their tracker, but it seems they intentionally want this to increase the utilization of the cloud instead of the server. It is really a nice feature and it's a shame that we don't have it."

"Its user interface could be more user friendly. In addition, a lot of features are missing for test management. It should have the test case ordering feature."

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."
