AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Not sure if a smaller organization would really use all the bells and whistles that JIRA offers. Trello could be a good alternative to get started with, but my guess is that as you grow you'll benefit from an industry standard like JIRA - good thing they make it easy to import your issues from other systems

Pros

  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.

  • Atlassian JIRA is used to track defects/CR's etc. Details about the defect raised by a QA, then its review by business users to give a go ahead to fix the bug, Developer to analysis and fixing the bug with comments, deploying to QA for testing, Tester testing the defect and then into UAT for business user testing for its deployment to Production
  • Integration with Fisheye, Stash, GIT, HP Quality Center etc
  • JIRA's project Dashboard for tracking all the stories/defects.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • The 10mb attachment limitation is sometimes annoying especially if you attach video
  • It would be cool if there was tight(er) and easy (easier) integration with things like Zendesk, SharePoint and Yammer, I am not sure that we have actually invested the effort to do this integration but i am sure if it was easy as flipping a switch it would have been done.
  • Sometimes the application misbehaves, I can't tell if this is infrastructure or what, usually this occurs when I am in a browser other than Chrome
  • I am not aware of a mobile app for it but if there is one that would be cool

We are very heavily dependent on Atlassian JIRA and have made it an integral part of our engineering and development best practices.

I used to get immediate support from the Jira helpdesk; also most of my issues are already explained in the user manual which is really helpful.

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

Alternatives Considered

Though with JIRA you need to buy a lot of plugins but it is still cheaper than HP ALM or HPE Octane which is very costly. HP QC is a fully functional software lifecycle tool and probably strongest in its test management capabilities. But in Agile we don't need that extensive test tracking and management so JIRA provides basic tracking and reports that are apt for Agile teams.In HP ALM you can't open another window which is not a problem with JIRA. Also in HP ALM you can't copy and paste some repetitive tasks which can be easily done in JIRA.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • Better communication between development and support tiers. - Positive
  • ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Positive
  • Consolidation of spreadsheets, emails, word docs, etc. That we used before JIRA to track incidents and initiatives. - Positive
  • Once the business flow is formalized through a tool such as JIRA, corporate politics rears it's head angrier than ever. - Negative, though not a fault of the JIRA solution singularly.
