Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The two features that have been most valuable have been backlog management and sprint planning and tracking.""In terms of scrum teams, I find that usually, the product backlog depends on charts and especially reports like Sprint Reports. I find the reports to be very useful.""With the help of Jira, tasks are less likely to remain stagnant for a long time. We always see them somewhere on the board.""The design of the interface is clean and not too busy visually.""It's very simple to change the workflow and adapt it. Jira is very user friendly for the agent and the user.""I have found the tracking, project and task management most valuable in this solution.""The agile framework works well, and I pretty much live by that. Everything, such as sprint management, is laid out.""There are many good things about Atlassian."

More Jira Pros →

"It is low-code. We are able to go in and create apps quickly. It is very helpful for the size of our company. We're a mid-size company, and at this moment, we don't need anything externally. We don't have to go out and consult a consulting firm to build something from the ground up. So, the ease of that and being able to get development quickly up and running has been good for us."

Cons
"The thing I don't like is that it is hard to decide which dropdown options should be selected. When we try and submit it, it will state that there are certain mandates in place. It won't allow us to submit the form unless we fill out all the details.""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.""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 performance could be improved in the future.""I find the dashboard to be Jira's most problematic feature.""Of course, the price could always be cheaper.""The initial setup was a bit problematic in terms of getting access to Jira. That goes for a few users, including me.""There is always a bit of a performance problem. It's a bit slow to load the whole data."

"Its UI needs improvement. They should improve it and make it a little bit more modern. We should also be able to have more real-time information that connects with other software platforms. It has an open API, but it doesn't always connect with some of the other platforms that we would like to utilize. These are probably two of the biggest things for us, and hopefully, they will keep ensuring that in the future, they continually build QuickBase to be a little bit more efficient in that regard."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "We have an enterprise license that includes cloud service and support."

  • "It is probably about 300 per license per person. There is just the licensing cost. There are no additional costs."
