Asana

Overall, despite its drawbacks, Asana works really well for our team. I think this is an appropriate [tool] for a mid-sized digital marketing firm, like ourselves. A software development team is going to want something more robust, like JIRA. However, if you're just shopping for an easy-to-learn tool that will help you manage responsibilities without relying on email? Asana is perfect. Its flexibility also makes it a great fit for most work-flows in almost any industry. Asana is simple out-of-the-box, but it does have robust functionalities that will allow your team to ramp up if desired.

Jama Connect

For simple requirements that need to go in one place and through a review process with a team, Jama is a good option. It has a nice, readable way of presenting the content, making it easier for people to review and provide feedback. It also offers support for adding test cases along with test plans, so my opinion that this tool is fit for non-technical people that need to manage a non-software development project with the goal of achieving good results(like a marketing team describing product marketing requirements).

  • Managing around 150 + Projects on the LifeScience Industry - Teams are very much involved completely on the JAMA Testing / Traceability and the reports - We recently implemented Velocity reports on our Regulated Instances and Customers are very happy on the Output.
  • We have Integrated with Major Project Management application JIRA - Using the Tasktop Integration Hub and the sync works well.
  • We also Integaretd with HP ALM with JAMA using the JIH and the complete Bsuiness Processes / BPAC, Configurational Items are used by Many Projects.
  • Discovery of Customer current and desired future state Product Delivery approach and processes.

Cons

  • This is not an improvement for Asana, but I wish there was a way to make team members held accountable when they do not actively participate on Asana and we do not know if they've accomplished their tasks or not if they have not logged in.

  • User roles and permissions: I would like to use the company's Active Directory groups when granting permissions for projects. We have it integrated with Okta, however, I can only add people to Jama one by one.
  • Out of the box reporting - you can never have enough reporting or custom reporting capabilities. However. Jama has just several and only on demand. Automatic scheduling of reports is not there.
  • For more complex requirements you may find it a little difficult to use Jama.
  • Price may be an issue for many. It is a cost per user and it is more expensive that other cloud tools we use, with a bigger ROI than Jama.

Asana is great for how I end up using it. When a new project launches and I get busy, I can easily pick it up and begin using it again and as I get more time (or the project completes) I can drop it again. It seems to morph better than any other application to exactly what project I'm working on, what I need to track, etc. It simply fits into my life extremely well and I'll end up using it again every time I start a new project.

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

Asana was developed with a very specific function in mind. Assigning and tracking tasks and projects. It does this very very well and doesn't really do a whole lot yes, which is perfectly fine. The only alternatives I could think of would be some sort of Dropbox or Google Drive document keeping track of task assignment. While, this might work, it's definitely not as feature-packed as Asana. And you'll still use either Dropbox or Google Drive for document collaboration.

We are using Confluence for software projects requirements. Even if it is not as dedicated to requirements as Jama is, software developers will choose Confluence over Jama if they already have JIRA for their Agile software development. The Confluence macros are a big plus over Jama. However, for nontechnical teams it makes sense to go with a lighter, nicer and easier to use tool like Jama, and that is what we did for our marketing department.

Return on Investment

  • Allows us to keep on top of grants and sponsorships that we might otherwise miss and keeps track of our answers, comments, and files from one year to the next.
  • Allows us to see when we need to report to the government and makes sure we don't accumulate any late fees.

  • For our marketing team, it made a difference having it all in one place, improving the team's collaboration on requirements reviews.
  • We are not sure yet if the cost for this software is worth paying for since we are not using it at its full capabilities; we will reevaluate at renewal.
  • We were thinking of adopting this tool also for software requirements and test plans, but we realized that it is not suitable for an Agile development methodology.
