Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The task management aspect of Jira is pretty pure. They have a lot of great plugins that really expand your options.""The most valuable features of Jira are all the integrations with other systems. It's not the best in any specific area but it has lots of plug-ins and integrations.""You no longer need to email people. You can mention them right in Jira and have conversations there.""The most valuable feature is that it has different APIs available, with good services, and it is completely by the books.""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.""I like seeing which tickets are open and what our response rate is. They have a lot of good metrics in their system to see what's going on.""Provides good output and is user-friendly.""The most valuable feature is working with sprints and having the ability to create sprints."

Cons
"Sometimes it takes time to load the data.""The solution could improve by having its own tool for quality lifecycle management.""Atlassian has multiple tools and it becomes difficult for a customer to process everything differently. Atlassian should combine them and form a single solution for DevOps by including the Jira Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo, and others. This would be much easier for customers by purchasing a package, rather than purchasing bits and pieces. With Azure DevOps and other companies, it becomes easier to go with one company having multiple areas that they can cater to, but in Atlassian, the problem is that you have to select different solutions to have a full package. For example, to have document management customers have to purchase Confluence and for Git repository management they have to purchase Bitbucket, et cetera. There is always another add-on that you need to attach to have a complete solution in Jira.""The way to configure it can definitely be improved. It is very difficult and complex to configure. Its configuration should be simplified.""One thing that I don't like about Jira is that when you do an export, it only allows a thousand issues. So the export feature needs to be better.""Stability is an area of concern and it needs improvement, otherwise, it's a good product.""It is a bit harder for management or the business partners. I used to search the Atlassian Community online for some troubleshooting issues and I think there were some issues that seemed to not be a big problem for other similar applications, like Microsoft Teams, that were not considered by Jira.""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."

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."
