JIRA

JIRA is a perfect fit for any organization where they have a large "in-flow" of projects, tasks, requests, etc. It helps to visualize who and where the majority of the projects are and how much time is being allotted or can be allotted to a particular task. It is particularly helpful in making sure that each team member is given an equal amount of work (if that is the goal) and seeing where each project stands.

  • The biggest impact from experience with JIRA is the transformation it took from when I first started using it, until now. It seemed like the good folks at JIRA really practiced what they preached and I reaped the benefits. When I first started using the agile boards, it was at a time when they had just come out with a new version if you will and were sunsetting the old version (I can't remember the names). Anyhow, the agile board worked enough for me to check the box that I had a backlog. It did the basics. As time went on however, I was thoroughly impressed at the features that they added. It was as if they had been sitting at my desk alongside me and noticing my frustrations and then fixing them.
  • Other favorite features, dashboards, saved searches, workflow, labels, advanced search query, linked issues, follow issue, history, batch updates, view in issue navigator. All these features seriously make life easier when working in JIRA. The administrative headaches of product management are out the window.
  • I also dig the administrative features like find my field. This makes it so easy for an administrator to identify the cause of a configuration error and fix/test quickly.

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • 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

JIRA is quickly becoming an integral part of our workflow. It will take some time to train non IT personnel how to work in a ticket-based system, but it will be worth it in the long run. As our company expands, so does our need for structure and organization. On top of this, the Atlassian team is incredibly helpful and very friendly in person. I have been able to get questions answered face to face and they even followed up to make sure the solution they recommended worked.

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.

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.
