Agile Manager

One scenario I believe HP Agile Manager is well suited is for a team of 5 or more developers who are releasing new features or addressing defects. Another scenario where it is beneficial is for teams of QA Automation engineers, where again, the objectives are clear. A scenario where I believe it would be less appropriate is for operations-type teams where objectives are not always clear cut, and the roles must be more reactive.

BeyondCompare

BeyondCompare is great for handling file differences for a large variety of file types. It is indispensable as a merge tool for version control systems, especially when dealing with difficult merges. And it also serves as an archive utility as it allows for the synchronization of folders.

Pros

  • Agile manager is particularly good for planning out sprints in an Agile methodology
  • The Task Board in AGM gives clear swim-lanes to indicate progress/status, or to gauge that of another team member.
  • The Dash Board gives visibility to team members capacity and the overall team burn down.

  • Ability to compare files, directories, FTP sites, cloud storage (Dropbox, OneDrive, Amazon S3, Subversion and WebDAV) and archive files (tar, gzip, bzip2, Microsoft CAB, WinRAR, Zip, 7-zip, and IMG/ISO disk images).
  • 3-way text merging. Allows you to see the original file, the remote version and your local version all at the same time to reconcile differences.
  • Ability to synchronize folders.
  • Can be configured to work with version control systems.
  • Works on Windows, Linux and OS X.

Cons

  • Removing stories from a Sprint results in them being difficult to find later.
  • Editing story details is slightly cumbersome.
  • It's somewhat unclear how capacity fills up for stories split from prior sprints.

  • The interface can be a little overwhelming at first.
  • During a 3-way merge, BC does not make it obvious which files are which so it gets confusing at times.

Alternatives Considered

HP Agile Manager is beefy enough to work for bigger teams. In this way it matches closely to what is offered with Rally. One area it comes up short when compared to Rally is the apparent lack of a test management capability, where requirements can be entered then mapped to test cases. Agile Manager has some of the agile feel offered by Trello and Waffle but the added functionality that makes it more valuable for bigger teams.

These are free and opensource applications. They do not have most of the features that BeyondCompare has. Even though they are free to use, the reasonable cost of BeyondCompare makes using it over these competitors a no brainer.
