Asana

Asana has helped us stay on track from briefing with marketing partners to planning with media partners then continuing the process of kicking off creative, working through creative and finalizing approvals to then finish and send to the activation team. It's a one stop shop for our project needs. Much like with any tool, getting users to adopt it and update can be a challenge but Asana makes it easy to assign tasks to keep folks in line.

Jama Connect

Jama Connect is well suited for an organization where it's required to include everything (required for a project / product) in one tool, i.e, from design specification till Test case reviews and defects as well. We can map the Design specifications with requirements (System / Software) and then with Test cases and we can track different changes done using Version history. Also we can link Test executions with test cases and also can keep track of different Reviews (Requirement/Test cases) and finally can link the defects logged in Jira with Jama as well.If the organization is small / if the product /project is small & can be tracked easily, then Jama is not the better tool. Also, if we would like to automate any process /flow in Jama, then its bit difficult to develop the scripts and get the complete support for the same.

Pros

Asana

  • Task Management - Being able to assign resources and time lines to specific activities
  • Project Management - Being able to plan, execute and track project process using this tool
  • Customizability - Being able to customize a solution that meets your needs or activity.

Jama Connect

  • I love that Jama components are individualized between engineering requirements, product requirements, Change Requests, Waivers (something we made), and so on. I like seeing all the different items in one project and not having to change windows or tabs.
  • The Jama reviews are straightforward and easy to navigate. I like seeing the progress and the electronic signatures. This was an added bonus.

Cons

Asana

  • I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features.
  • Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

Jama Connect

  • The Text Editor is not convenient. Has a learning curve.
  • Review Center still needs work as numbering for selected items in a review is still an issue.
  • Once a review is published, the new item cannot be introduced into the review. Requires the review to be republished.
  • JIRA connector is no longer inbuilt and requires expensive third-party tools from OPS HUB or Tasktop. Maybe cost prohibitive for Small and Medium Enterprises.
  • Jama Cloud users cannot customize their own reports. Will need to reach out to Jama help with customization.
  • The Search feature within Jama still needs work. Especially within a review.
  • It is still unclear what will happen to all our data if we choose to end our contract with Jama. How can we read our data.
  • It does not export well into Word documents as the formatting and alignments are always out of sync.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

Jama Connect is not adding many extra features with their major releases. It showed launched new features, but those are not very useful for developers or creators working with Jama. From the performance side, Jama has been reduced it's performance in Jama 8 as compared to Jama 2015.5 from the functional perspective. The test suite must be provided by Jama to test the performance and function of things in our instance, but Jama doesn't provide it. Also, Jama requires a lot of manual intervention for adding users.

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Jama is mostly designed for requirement gathering, but that can be possible using JIRA if we add only approval type of plugin for special requirement types. Jama's performance and features do not improve on a periodic basis i.e. with each release. Even bug fixes take a lot of time and they don't care about customer impact.

Jama is available most of the time if it is used within the application's boundary. Jama has very good availability if we use very high hardware servers. Sometimes we face issues if there are batch operations running.

With performance compared to JIRA, I do recommend Jama in this case. Jama provides very good performance, it loads immediately for any of the items and searches any item immediately. Performance is really good in all of the operations including creating stories, epics, item types or other support operations or report generation.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

They typically answer within minutes of posting a ticket, and then you have a clear expectation of what the issue is, how to diagnose it, how long will it take to get resolved, and in which version a given problem is resolved, or if there is a patch for hosted services. They have a number of support people, and all of them are top-notch.

Jama 2015.5 implementation is very smooth and no need for much manual work. Jama 8 has many challenges and we can not install it as smoothly as Jama 2015.5. Initially, Jama didn't provide the Jama 8's installer files or zip files and they were just providing docker files to everyone (which was really strange). It is the worst that they don't provide all the files at a time. Why should they tell us where we should deploy, and why only a dockerfile? I am not very satisfied with Jama implementation.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

We selected ASANA based on the feature set, and ease of rollout. monday.com had very good workflow automation but we found that ASANA was quicker and easier for staff to build a task eco-system that worked for them.
Zoho Projects was a very strong contender but was much more expensive and so ASANA was the more effective choice across the board.

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.

There is no horizontal scalability available in Jama, we have only one choice to scale it vertically. But vertical scalable applications always have limitations to grow. In this case, Jama doesn't support horizontal scalability functions like multi-node architectures with a shared drive for the home directory.

  • I don't have the numbers/cost per user license vs increased revenues but overall, the use of and recommendation to use Jama by our team has proven successful for us with our client projects. It has been used for every project ever since. It has created a work flow/process with our client and helped to standardize the SDLC.
