Airtable is a genius solution for the restrictions of spreadsheets when the data needs to be accessed across several layers and presented in a 2D report. Airtable does this naturally without the need to export and modify the data into a database. It is a solution for any team that can benefit from multi-dimensional access to various data.

Rally Software (formerly CA Agile Central)

If your organisation is planning to adopt Scaled Agile Framework Methodology (SAFe) without being worried about cost, CA Agile Central is one of the best tools. Here, you can look at various release trains and how that then flows up to the overall program budget. You can look holistically across all the release trains with minimal effort and have it flow up to the program office’s budget. It also helps by easily maintaining backlogs and integrating more seamlessly into software developers releases, iterations, and features. It has no conformance issue as it supports almost all the browsers like IE from version 8.0, Firefox from 3.6 and the newest versions of Chrome (from 6.0) and Safari (from 4.0).

Pros

Airtable

  • Flexibility: there are many view features and different ways you can use the product
  • Integrations: there are so many apps you can integrate it; from Slack to Shipstation
  • Beautiful: it just looks nice to use. Sometimes project management apps are ugly, this isn't

  • The ability to tailor the tool for each product. For example some simpler projects can be managed with simple user stories, a Kanban process and board. Large projects are managed with iterations, releases, tasks and burn down charts.
  • Create a home dashboard and customize it to show user stories and tasks assigned to you and a personal burn down chart.
  • A portfolio management capability where you can link and view the entire hierarchy from theme to initiative to feature to user story(s) and finally to tasks.

Cons

Airtable

  • I would like to be able to sort items into groups without having to sort by specific columns. Just manually sort by click and drag.
  • I'd like to see all of the documents of each base stored collectively somewhere and cataloged in a document library.
  • I would like to see this base exportable as a Gant chart.

Rally Software (formerly CA Agile Central)

  • the service was intermittently down, sometimes for several hours.
  • Rally is a very large powerful tool, and that also is the reason why it can't be a good fit for small teams who want simpler interfaces and way less features.
  • loading pages is slow, add to that if you (like me) keep it open all day after signing in, the systems logs you out automatically.
  • pening multiple windows (on separate tabs) has some problematic issues esp. when your sessions expires, and you will need to sign in to all other tabs one by one. Also if you attempt to sign in again on one tab, all the other tabs redirect to the same page of the first tab you signed in.
  • a steep learning curve for agile beginners/novice team member - leaving those members to use the tool without any training makes it almost impossible for them to know what they must do to get by their daily tasks
  • not enough free documentation online

  • 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.

Airtable has a plethora of features that suit our needs, although there are little things that could be improved to make it perfect. I believe Airtable is actively working to improve their product so I have every confidence that Airtable is the perfect choice for our purposes.

Great UI, recent refresh was terrific. Great graphs and metrics, inline editing for updates, and a multitude of views on sprint progress make for a great team collaboration experience. There is also an active community and forums so that if you do need help, it is readily available

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.

I am impressed by the support provided by the Airtable team. For each query or any issue raised by the user, there are multiple ways of contacting them. One way is email. They reply within 24 hours, or the second way is customer support. Customer support is available for users in chat or telephonic phone or both. You can opt for any communication mode.

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

Airtable

I trialed around 7 products, which include 4 education products and 3 online products at least. I can't remember all of the pros and cons as it was a couple of years ago and I am now upgrading from a free plan to a paid one. Suffice to say, Airtable beat all of them hands down, for ease of use and flexibility

It was a close race between Jama, JIRA and Rally. We decided to go for Jama as a requirements management tool and use Rally for Agile projects. The cost was another factor that made us select Rally.

Return on Investment

Airtable

  • I would estimate it has personally saved me 2 hours a week of administration better invested in other things. These are the most valuable cost savings I have on a personal level.
  • I was able to explore, populate, configure and prepare Airtable for what I needed for free. Only when we reached the point of being ready to make full use of the system did we need to spend a penny.
  • Replacing Excel for administrative tasks with Airtable will eventually save us hundreds of lost hours a year.

Rally Software (formerly CA Agile Central)

  • It lets our scrum master collect monthly metrics for our team, which we use to adapt our practices to be more efficient
  • It organizes the organization's initiatives nicely, and allows easy conversation based on the epic/feature code
  • It slightly slows down and frustrates the development team I'm on, due to the cons I already mentioned
