Micro Focus PPM

For Project Management, Micro Focus PPM includes all most every feature you need. You can manage your projects using work plans, project health, resource assignments, actuals, and costs. Additionally, you can get required approvals with workflows like sponsor approval or CR approvals. However, at project costing we need to make customizations due to lack of several outsource costs on it.

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.

Cons

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

  • The only difficult thing is its learning for the beginners.
  • Initially, its learning is quite steep but with the passage of time it becomes smooth enough and you will love to use it.
  • It is enriched with all latest and powerful features in order to fully satisfy customers.

Micro Focus PPM

  • The workflow engine is perfect, but there is room for improvement. The Workflow engine script language is not capable enough. For example, if you want to call an RPC (Remote Call Procedure) you have to do it in a tricky way.
  • Each rose has a thorn. In the Workflow engine, you can configure each field's visibility and obligation state in a form depend on the status of workflow steps. Even if your approval step has passed you can still see and edit fields in the form and can save your changes.

GUI needs to be enhanced for today's technical and agile development requirements. It is very cumbersome and out-dated (at some pages)

While we have not had any issues with Jira since our organization adopted the software, this fact is clear evidence that they actively maintain and fix newly reported issues by their users. Thus, being on top of bug fixes is perhaps the best way of supporting users. They also have made their support easily accessible and available on their website.

Have your methodology defined prior to the vendor coming on board to start any configuration changes.

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.

Return on Investment

Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft)

  • With Jira, it is very easy to track down various bottlenecks in the deliverables further streamlining the development process in the production stage. Running numerous IT projects with multiple bottlenecks and backlogs was the biggest challenge that we ever faced before implementing Jira. Jira made the process more efficient by saving time and money.
  • Jira helped to build customized features for different verticals. Rather than investing in different third party tools we were able to perform the same tasks in Jira. This saved us lot of money.
