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.

ZenHub

If you have more than 2 developers this thing is basically a requirement within github to manage sprints if you use agile methodology. Why use a different website entirely when you can run your entire board right from github itself? I've tried other solutions but basing everything on github issues makes it so no duplicate work has to take place. If the UX quirks and mobile were fixed this would be 10/10 for me!If you're only one or two devs on a team it may be overkill to use, but if you're going to scale it's better to put the process in early.

Pros

  • Excellent organization, because it allows us to filter by status and category
  • Easy enough to keep track of my own submitted ideas and items I've voted on
  • Beautiful comment threads to see everyone's thoughts
  • Great notification system to see what's changed and how, so I don't have to live and breathe Aha!

  • Makes it very easy to get a high-level overview of sprints and sprint progress, creates burndown charts, etc
  • UX is top notch, almost everything works intuitively
  • You can create issues and epics right from the interface, basically all github issue functionality is available through zenbhub
  • Embeds into github using an extension so you don't need an external site
  • Free starter plan good to test and for small dev teams

Cons

  • I wish the notifications could be streamlined, so that the text of the email was just simpler and easier on the eyes, and that I could respond to comments by replying to the email instead of opening up Aha! again.
  • A little more color wouldn't hurt. The UX is smooth, but the design is rather bland. It still gets the job done though.

  • Mobile experience is hard as it's a board layout. Could use a dedicated app.
  • Has some UX quirks that rear their heads randomly, i.e. can't convert an issue to an epic if you click the wrong button when creating
  • May have recently moved to all-paid for companies with a 14 day trial, used to be free for small teams

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

Almost amazing with a few hiccoughs. Mobile is a big one and also sometimes you want to run a filter or something and the outcome is not what you would expect.

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! 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.

Way better than competition if you use github because it seamlessly integrates without doing anything. You don't need to duplicate your issues, etc. As long as your devs already use github and github issues this will be a no brainer and simple to implement. With JIRA or Trello we were doing everything twice, things got dropped, etc.

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.

  • Saving dev time, making it easier to create a process they enjoy and use without issue (intangible)
  • Making conversations between developers and product teams/easy to facilitate (intangible)
  • Sped up the entire process (intangible)
