Gitlab

Gitlab is great in any environment where source code version is required. It is very similar to github.com with it's feature set but it also has a set of unique features such as build pipeline (we haven't used it yet). The features are constantly being added and they reflect industry's direction with features such as Docker integration.

Pros

AgileCraft

  • Effective Sprint planning : Sprint planning can be done using Planning Poker in AgileCraft by clicking Team > Manage > Other > Estimation Games very effectively for distributed teams.
  • Team Capacity Allocation Report: After tasks are created at team or program level, the report from AgileCraft cab be pulled and can be verified that no team member is under or over allocated. A report can be generated by navigating to Team > Manage > Assign Tasks.
  • Effective Requirement trace-ability: To maintain requirements trace-ability follow the steps below:
  • Upload test cases against the story/requirement. once uploaded test cases will be visible under that story
  • Execute Test cases in AgileCraft and mark them as Pass/Fail based on the actual outcome
  • Based on test results, The acceptance criterion's can be marked as “Pass” or “Fail” & if marked failed corresponding defect can be logged & can be attached with the story
  • So against each story we can easily see whether all test cases been executed or not & which acceptance criterion's are failed & how many defects are in open or close state.
  • Daily Scrum: In AgileCraft, the option to run a daily stand-up is available from Team > Manage > Daily Standups. Selecting the sprint number opens the daily stand-up meeting window in which each team member's tasks are visible and hours can be burned against them. Conduct Scrum meetings in AgileCraft, and burn each associate hour against the tasks created during the meeting. The burn-down chart can be generated & viewed during the stand-up to check whether the team is on track.

Cons

AgileCraft

  • Program level metrics & Scorecards: Though we can generate few metrics & scorecards but I feel few more metrics can be added like velocity acceleration , team improvement rate.
  • QA team often come to me regarding the test case tagging, it is very difficult to search particular test case here so I feel advance search feature should be provided.
  • Program Planning: In Agilecraft program tracker if we have lot of multiple dependencies & where situation demands to look at our features holistically across the entire landscape of the solution, it did not provide proper support.
  • Also If I need to take a call at which sprint need to be optimized I did not get that decision making enablement here.

Gitlab

  • Slightly difficult learning curve for non-technical staff to navigate through the relevant pages in projects
  • No ability to fully customise permissions
  • Issue tracking is not the most user friendly

Alternatives Considered

AgileCraft

JIRA basic version do not have basic support for test management, capacity planning & forecasting.

Rally is good & rich in features but if you want to implement safe , Agilecraft is definitely a better choice.
Rally supports safe but I did not get good support from technical desk & few features are really cumbersome to use.

HP Quality Center 11 supports agile teams well but I found it pretty costly.

Gitlab

In terms of issue tracking and wiki documentation, Gitlab isn't as fully featured as them and has a more developer-centric workflow and GUI. This makes it more difficult for other organisation members to learn and adopt the software fully. However, Gitlab was still chosen primarily as our version control manager of choice due to its integrations, CI-CD pipeline capability and cost-effectiveness, rather than a tool for issue tracking across the organisation.

Return on Investment

AgileCraft

  • Able to forecast & plan releases well using agilecraft leading to quality on time delivery.
  • Distributed teams are able to collaborate well, be it be daily scrum, retrospective, estimation though this. Also team members love the gamification part & they have fun using this tool. Earlier we use to face challenges due to distributed teams but after AgileCraft, collaboration & communication was no longer a challenge & we are able to see improvement not only in team velocity, but also team satisfaction.
  • Simplest tool to implement safe, scaling is always a problem with most of the agile tools but agilecraft helps in smoother implementation of safe practices & principles.

Gitlab

  • We have been able to roll repository hosting, Docker registries and continuous delivery without taking on the costs of services like GitHub, Docker's public registry or Circle CI.
  • GitLab's integration with JIRA makes it easier for teams to move quickly controlling ticket flow through commit messages.
  • Managing GitLab through Docker containers makes updates take minutes instead of hours allowing engineers to focus on customer products.
