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.

Jama Connect

For simple requirements that need to go in one place and through a review process with a team, Jama is a good option. It has a nice, readable way of presenting the content, making it easier for people to review and provide feedback. It also offers support for adding test cases along with test plans, so my opinion that this tool is fit for non-technical people that need to manage a non-software development project with the goal of achieving good results(like a marketing team describing product marketing requirements).

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.

  • Product requirements: a nice and easy way of writing requirements, keeping them classified and organized
  • Requirements review: the information to review is displayed intuitively in the User Interface and adding your review comments is enabled for every line item in an individual paragraph
  • Administration: for a cloud application the administrative features are extensive with an acceptable level of details

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.

  • I think these guys should really work on the User Interface. The UI is intuitive but can be more user-friendly. For an example, color coding the entities according to Priority, Status would be awesome. JIRA does a great job in doing this. Something similar can be done in Jama.
  • Though Jama claims to be a Product Development Tool, it is actually very good at just managing requirements. All the other important aspects have been ignored in Jama (like test suite, bug/defect tracking). This is a reason that other tools like JIRA, Git, HP QC have to be deployed complimentary to Jama. The integration of these tools becomes very important and there are only a few reliable integration solutions available in the market.

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.

I like VersionOne (CollabNet) reporting better, and I cut my teeth on JIRA, but Jama has exceeded my expectations. Very easy to use and get started, especially if you haven't used another product previously.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to plan our Sprint work more effectively
  • It has made it more clear how to accurately estimate certain problems
  • It has given clarity over time as to the skill and work speed of team members

  • Faster, more accurate reporting. Prior to one of the projects I worked on, requirements traceability reporting was a manual asynchronous affair. That is to say whenever there was an update we had to make sure all of our spreadsheets were up to date. Jama did wonders for our requirements integrity from that sense, and made it much easier to generate various reports depending on what was being asked.
