PLM Development at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
Sep 9, 2019
JIRA was inexpensive in the beginning when we first took the solution on. After we bought it, the prices went up. Scaling it as our company grew was a little like making purchases from a drug dealer: once you are hooked you pay whatever you have to. Atlassian is not the only company to raise their prices over time, so it is understandable. But it is much more expensive for us now.
The pricing of the solution is expensive. When you install any add-on, you have to pay for each and everyone who is declared on the system in order to have the add-on working. If you have anywhere from one hundred to five hundred users and even if you only have two hundred users using this solution, you have to pay for them all.
The primary use case for this solution is to manage the work that has to be done, everything else is on a repository that is maintained by another tool. It's how the work has been designed at the beginning of the project. We have one repository where we store all of the requirements, the testing, and all of the activity trackings are done in JIRA. The deployment model was on-premises.
