Asana

I can not be happier. My team was using Basecamp but we outgrew it. We moved to Teamwork and clients stopped using it and so did my team. We were in Teamwork for just a month and decided we needed something better. We then found Asana and it has been a breeze since. My team was far happier and ready to use it and my clients started interacting with it again. It is simple to use, yet very powerful

Jama

Jama is best suited for industries with complex products. These include industries like aerospace, semiconductor etc. Also, industries where data traceability is important - like healthcare, defense etc.A product like Jama, according to me, is not useful for scenarios where inter-team dependency is minimal or the product developed is not very complex. One does not require a powerful tool like Jama there and a very basic requirement management tool would suffice.

Pros

  • Asana allows you to organize your task through a list or through boards.
  • Asana has a great user interface so it's easy for you to locate the projects and the pieces of tasks under each project.
  • Asana's "My Tasks" feature allows you to see all the tasks assigned to you and you can re-arrange them according to priority level.
  • Asana allows me to attach files to each task which allows us to see the progress of the project. It allows you to comment on the current files and the owner of the task can revise it then according to your instructions.

  • Flexibility to create a custom requirement management ecosystem.
  • I love the fact that a Jama user can choose from a large variety of existing entities, but at the same time, also create new components and sort and manage them effectively. One can link different entities, bundle them and segregate them.
  • Traceability
  • Jama focuses a lot on maintaining traceability. And anyone who uses Jama will notice this. For even a delta change in the requirement or entity, it locks in the time stamp and the user. This proves to be a very useful feature in industries where data traceability is critical. Jama is thus best suited for requirement management in industries like aerospace, defense, and healthcare. One can always go back and get the whole audit trail.
  • The Trace View and Reading View
  • In a complex scenario, where one has to manage hundreds of requirements, Jama provides the best way to analyze them. The new features like Trace View and Reading View (which were absent in earlier versions) make requirements management more intuitive. Users can create a custom filter and view as well, this is great.

Cons

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.

  • Jama can have better overall SDLC management components especially bridging between different ALM tools.
  • Jama is not an ALM tool but can have some better customization of defect reporting mechanisms as well as test run approach.
  • Jama's ability to break out steps into sub-children in a test plan hierarchy can use a bit of improvement to make it more modular.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

Alternatives Considered

Trello is really just more on boards and the con with that is if you list lots of task under one headboard some tasks are buried from the view since the boards are a bit big. I like the list feature of Asana, especially for project management. Trello on the other is a great platform for creative projects like graphics, book covers, and others since if you attached the file to board you can easily view the image. Asana though on my part allows me more freedom and more creativity since it has more features like calendar and priority level. Basecamp is more of casual way of arranging task. I don't like it that much.

These products serve two different purposes really, JIRA with the GreenHopper plugin is a more tactical minded application.
