    Jira is the tool I use to oversee projects, allocate tasks to engineers, and monitor overall development. The openness and access that Jira offers are necessary for many teams. Jira ensures that no issue is overlooked and that everyone has access to the full picture of the processes they are involved in. In fact, team members are able to connect, share ideas, and attach crucial documents while receiving immediate updates on topics that are of interest to them.

    Micro Focus ALM Octane

    If someone is already using ALM Octane, then it is worth the pain to go through the upgrade process to get the current versions. If you need it to tie into Jira, it can do that. Just be prepared for a rough road. If you have some other product that you use for DevOps, PM, and QA, you will probably be better off sticking with what you have. DaVita also uses TFS, but not in a full implementation (i.e. not with a build server for code deployment), so for them, ALM makes a lot of sense. If you are using TFS with a build server, there are other methodologies that won't end up making you want to pull your hair out trying to make it integrate with what you are using.

    Pros

    Atlassian Jira Align

    • 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.

    Cons

    Atlassian Jira Align

    • 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

    Micro Focus ALM Octane

    • The integration to Synchronizer is very difficult to implement.
    • The integration to Jira was very hard to get working.

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

    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.

    I am satisfied with the support for Atlassian JIRA Align (formerly Agile Craft). There is a broad knowledge base online provided by Atlassian for the various Jira products. There is also an online community that can help address questions and provide guidance. There is also excellent customer support. We haven't had to report any bugs or open any cases for our team.

    Alternatives Considered

    Atlassian Jira Align

    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.

    Micro Focus ALM Octane use at DaVita goes back beyond my starting with them three years ago. They have used it as part of DevOps as well as for performance measurement of software releases in combo with HP Performance Center (a great combination). Jira is well suited to managing bug reports and development processes with Agile and Scrum, but ALM Octane goes above and beyond that.
