Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

The Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) tools help keep our scrum teams moving in the right direction. It gives Sr. Executives visibility into the progress of our digital transformation efforts. It provides information to our program manager to create the necessary artifacts to justify continued funding of our initiatives. It also supports the SAFe framework, along with some others. And the Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) tools provide integration to other tools that we use in our portfolio.

Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Pros

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

  • Effective Sprint planning : Sprint planning can be done using Planning Poker in AgileCraft by clicking Team > Manage > Other > Estimation Games very effectively for distributed teams.
  • Team Capacity Allocation Report: After tasks are created at team or program level, the report from AgileCraft cab be pulled and can be verified that no team member is under or over allocated. A report can be generated by navigating to Team > Manage > Assign Tasks.
  • Effective Requirement trace-ability: To maintain requirements trace-ability follow the steps below:
  • Upload test cases against the story/requirement. once uploaded test cases will be visible under that story
  • Execute Test cases in AgileCraft and mark them as Pass/Fail based on the actual outcome
  • Based on test results, The acceptance criterion's can be marked as “Pass” or “Fail” & if marked failed corresponding defect can be logged & can be attached with the story
  • So against each story we can easily see whether all test cases been executed or not & which acceptance criterion's are failed & how many defects are in open or close state.
  • Daily Scrum: In AgileCraft, the option to run a daily stand-up is available from Team > Manage > Daily Standups. Selecting the sprint number opens the daily stand-up meeting window in which each team member's tasks are visible and hours can be burned against them. Conduct Scrum meetings in AgileCraft, and burn each associate hour against the tasks created during the meeting. The burn-down chart can be generated & viewed during the stand-up to check whether the team is on track.

Kanban Tool

  • A card for each data object documents and controls the whole migration process
  • Cards for subtask like meetings, workshops and so on
  • Organization of daily work by email integration

Cons

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

  • The initial ticket creation screen lacks some important features, such as assigning "point values" (a measure of effort needed for the ticket).
  • The browser needs to be manually refreshed to see new tickets, which can make things confusing when several people in a meeting are simultaneously creating tickets.
  • The interface on some smaller portions of the software are sometimes difficult to understand.
Ryan McGarry | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kanban Tool

  • There isn't a strong UI on the tool. Customizations can be difficult to make.
  • There isn't a very robust communications component on the tool to facilitate conversations—it's WYSIWYG.
  • The mobile story isn't fully developed yet. It could stand to be stronger on mobile devices.

There is nothing that can be better than Jira but it needs to keep improving certain areas especially the attachment size area.

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Most of the things are easily manageable except certain things that are hidden and you need to ask teammates who are aware of how they can link attachements in the comment section and so on.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

Overall support from Jira team is good. It comes at an additional price but it is very efficient. There are no long wait times, you get a dedicated team to look into your issues. The support is available throughout the year and they keep a record of your issues. Overall we are very satisfied with the support they have provided us over the years, it has been very effective for the price that we pay.

Alternatives Considered

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

Microsoft Azure Devops won't have the major functionality of software management like Jira. The customization provided by Jira is having a cutting edge over any project management tool. Adds-on and Plugins feature in the Jira Tool make it as perfect as desired task management tool for any company. One of the best Agile based Project Management Tools.

Doesn't allow to easily customize swim lanes or add multiple boards to a single view. Other products were very expensive, even for small teams.

Return on Investment

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

  • It has positively impacted our tech teams, allowing them to better organize the tasks and items they are working on and has greatly improved their ability to communicate & review these tasks with other teams.
  • I believe it negatively impacted other departments as lengthy training was required by many associates to attempt using the tool, only to find out it didn't meet our needs, therefore much time was wasted.

Kanban Tool

  • Less man hours needed to perform our standard tasks.
  • More jobs done before deadline than ever before.
  • When compared to the other service we used, the pricing is very good. We didn't really calculate the ROI, but we have made significant savings, when compared to the previous solution applied.
