Likelihood to Recommend

Aha!

Well-suited for strategic release planning and internal stakeholder communication. I would not recommend it for day to day task tracking (although I don't think its intended to be used for that).

JIRA

JIRA is a perfect fit for any organization where they have a large "in-flow" of projects, tasks, requests, etc. It helps to visualize who and where the majority of the projects are and how much time is being allotted or can be allotted to a particular task. It is particularly helpful in making sure that each team member is given an equal amount of work (if that is the goal) and seeing where each project stands.

Pros

  • Provides an easy to understand visual for upcoming releases and what is included.
  • Makes it easy for Product Managers to interact directly with users via the Idea Bank portal.
  • Provides a way to link dependencies and related features to help understand expected feature releases.

  • Atlassian JIRA is used to track defects/CR's etc. Details about the defect raised by a QA, then its review by business users to give a go ahead to fix the bug, Developer to analysis and fixing the bug with comments, deploying to QA for testing, Tester testing the defect and then into UAT for business user testing for its deployment to Production
  • Integration with Fisheye, Stash, GIT, HP Quality Center etc
  • JIRA's project Dashboard for tracking all the stories/defects.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The new version of JIRA is a bit slow and not responsive.
  • A lot of functionality added has lead to slowness in the tool
  • A click here and there leads to opening a small window for adding comments which can be irritating sometimes.

We are very heavily dependent on Atlassian JIRA and have made it an integral part of our engineering and development best practices.

The functionality is there, but it's intimidating to learn.

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.

I used to get immediate support from the Jira helpdesk; also most of my issues are already explained in the user manual which is really helpful.

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

Alternatives Considered

Aha! definitely does more than either Pivotal Tracker or JIRA. We still use JIRA to track tasks by department, but for strategy everything is in Aha! and aligns all of our other project/task trackers including integrating with Salesforce so we're able to work within every departments' preferred solution and see progress without necessarily having to check with everyone involved in a project.

In the past I have used a variety of engineering ticketing systems and project management systems but this one is undoubtedly one of the most flexible and fastest to get going on

Return on Investment

  • It has helped us improve our product lifecycle communication. We have less wasted time spent figuring out where the project is and what it's waiting on. This has helped departments further down the project better use their time so they're already aligned with what's happening rather than waiting for a handoff.
  • Aha! has helped include our customers more in our product planning and especially in our bug fixes and new feature roadmaps.
  • Aha! has improved our strategy meetings or roundup discussions by storing everything in one place. They're shorter and more focused.

  • A lot of accountability.
  • Every developer can see their progress and how they did. No one needs to be told.
  • Excellent communication - don't email etc, just add a comment in JIRA.
