Aha!

For a marketing team, where we move quickly and are constantly rearranging our tasks and flows, Aha! is an excellent tool. It takes little maintenance, has high visibility of the big picture tasks, and is easy to modify. We did have trouble with more technical teams, like our devs, feeling like it wasn't built for their needs and struggling to implement it.

Rally is a great tool for large teams with very good experience in the agile world. It's not well-suited for those little, get-things-done teams, since managing the whole platform becomes really a job by itself. Teams generally might have to consider having a dedicated member in the team to manage and administrate the tool and facilitate communicate with all team members regarding tasks flow and updates. If your team is active, that will generate a lot of noise in the landing page making it hard to focus on one aspect.

  • Drag and drop artifact arrangement has gotten better in the past few releases, but is still a bit difficult to use.
  • Integrations with customer-facing bug tracking systems is possible, but requires more direct intervention than expected.
  • Renaming the product from Rally to CA Agile Central is confusing in the market - Rally was a known entity and even CA has to call their own solution "CA Agile Central (formerly Rally)." Not good.

  • To keep connecting my people, platform, and process for faster, smarter, better results.
  • Making the right contribution to the community. Use Agile and Lean processes to manage the work of your team.
  • Once you have tasted the positive result with Rally Software, you don't want to give up and come back to the old school of development pain any more.

When we started with Scrum at Rally years ago, we used to just do a design meeting every few weeks with a couple of key stakeholders to talk about what was coming up and prepare the backlog. This worked relatively well, but as we added more discipline to our release cycle, the ad-hoc backlog planning our product owners were used to, started to break.

The screens render relatively quickly but many actions that you would expect to require a single click require multiple clicks and pop-up windows. The extra windows and clicks make the product feel ponderous.

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.

It more or less confirmed that we are using it the way they had in mind. We were hoping for a epiphany in terms of how we could use it better.

They also want to be a go to source for agile processes and have an online resource center. It’s not that great but had a couple of nuggets. It hasn’t really helped us too much and we are not too far off from the classical interpretation of agile.

I would recommend training, in particular for organizations that multiple on-going projects. The product seems optimized for larger, more complex teams and getting proper training on how to configure, administer and use the system would be beneficial

Alternatives Considered

Aha!

Aha has more features continually being released as a Product Management tool. In comparison to ProductPlan, Aha has more complex features and increased support for getting organizations up and running on the platform. They also provide migration tools to determine what data from your old systems that you need to get started.

Selected because the others seemed worse two years ago when the decision was made. VersionOne seemed ugly and too restricted. Might look better now. Microsoft TFS, now VSO, looked limited but also might look better now. Microsoft is improving it at a remarkably rapid pace. Jira was considered and rejected because their solution is too piecemeal requiring too much administration.

Return on Investment

Aha!

  • Refining our product management processes in a visual manner.
  • Improving communication and tracking with development.
  • Easy to communicate product timelines.

  • Positive: fast ramp up didn't crash and burn
  • Negative: obscures business value of features... the implementation of that kind of view is minimal
