Aha!

  • Aha! is the all around product management tool. You need something once you build out a product management role and grow beyond a small scrum team with one or two products. JIRA, Pivotal, and project management tools don't cut it for aligning [engineering] with product initiatives once the backlog starts to scale.
  • On the other hand, there are several unfinished features that my peers all admit to having to work around: Capacity Planning, Salesforce Integration, Roadmap Display Flexibility, User Feedback, etc. This year has been all about reporting in terms of feature releases. As Aha! grows, they will fill in these other areas, so stay tuned.

For development teams with a history of Microsoft tools alignment, Azure DevOps provides familiar patterns and interfaces. And for product management / product marketing users, the use of use of data entry and the Excel integration provide for easy on-ramps for learning and proficiency development. For teams that have used tools such as FogBugz, the boards and case layouts may take a little getting used to.

Pros

Aha!

  • Very flexible workflows, custom fields, terminology, and interface design
  • Easy to get started with whatever elements you want to use without requiring an all in approach. For example, we started with features and releases. After we were comfortable with the product we started managing our goals and initiatives. Even later we opened an idea portal to work with the rest of our business
  • Nice clean look. Good documentation. Responsive support.

  • Visual Studio supports many languages like C#,HTML.C++ and many others. We can also make Visual Studio to support other different languages with the help of plugins, like for Java, Python, etc.
  • We are using TFS with the VS, so it makes it easy to track the code and project changes, and if required we can also track the code of every single line to see what it means, by whom this code is written, and for which problem.
  • A unique work item change order number is assigned to the changes that you are making, apart from your shelveset creation
  • We can create the build definition through which we can automate the deployment and upgrade processes.
  • It provides a lot of menus and options/templates through which we can make our computer application for enterprise or for non-enterprise
  • We can easily integrate our customized/required menu in the VS through registry files or through deployment of the code

Cons

Aha!

  • When I first started using Aha! I was quite overwhelmed with all of the features. This may be due to user error, but I would have liked more guidance through each step.

  • I don't have any recommendations for improvement myself as I use the tool for specific reasons and for all my own uses, it works very well. However, I AM looking forward to the upgrade to the 2012 version because I'm excited about improved graphics tools and improvements in reports, etc.

I don't think our organization will stray from using VSTS/TFS as we are now looking to upgrade to the 2012 version. Since our business is software development and we want to meet the requirements of CMMI to deliver consistent and high quality software, this SDLC management tool is here to stay. In addition, our company uses a lot of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, Asp.net, etc, and since VSTS/TFS has proved itself invaluable to our own processes and is within the Microsoft family of products, we will continue to use VSTS/TFS for a long, long time.

Support always answered in 24 hours for any inquiry-- a reasonable timeframe for most of our requests. The PM team participated actively in supporting their features, keeping them close to the product.

Alternatives Considered

Aha!

Aha! is completely different compared to the other products I've evaluated. I would compare Aha! to Atlassian/JIRA. It's great for agile teams to do weekly sprints and breakdown large features/product upgrades into individual tasks.

I haven't used any other products, so I can't say how VSTS/TFS would stack against any competitors, but I know that for an SDLC management tool, VSTS/TFS has everything you need to help an organization meet the requirements needed to adhere to the specific/general practices related to CMMI.

Return on Investment

Aha!

  • I think it's taught us how to group tasks into big overarching goals that get broken into one- and two-step pieces. Eating the elephant one bite at a time.
  • We've also learned to be a bit more efficient in sharing what we're doing and what we'll need help with, instead of springing tasks on each other last minute.

  • For us, as a software development company, MS VSTS has served us well by providing the ability to plan and execute that plan with more efficiency and less risk.
  • VSTS provides a central point of communication for Team members with the use of Work Items, Reports, Document Storage, the Team Portal/Dashboard, which has aided us greatly during scrum.
  • We can also provide better information and status to our customers on whether we will meet our agreed-upon milestone dates for code freeze, testing, and delivery. Using the burn-down reports (based on the hours within Tasks and Bugs that are assigned to a particular iteration), we can look at the burn-down trend and know well in advance whether we will meet that deadline or not.
  • VSTS/TFS provides a good way tracking and monitoring risks and issues within a project and capturing mitigation and contingency plans related to those risks and issues. As a former PJM who used risk and issue work items quite a lot, I found that using the right field settings and queries, I could determine just how many risks have high impact to a plan or what work items were being blocked and preventing the plan from moving forward.
