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.

It is well suited in just about any large scaled environment. For the cost to benefit ratio, it works perfect for large scaled systems. With standard traceability matrix view and enhanced task management, it's a behemoth of a software and welcomed one. In the cases for smaller efforts or organizations, it may be a tall order so I would heed with caution for those people. Polarion has wonderful modelling abilities to test try any system being built. And the Risk Management components are down right amazing. Some filtering enhancements can help it rise to the top as well as performance optimizations

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.

  • Re using process is much more easy
  • Uploading the documents and files can be done.
  • We can export our file's and TC's as well
  • We can lock our Test cases and Results as well, which is a good one. So that our data is safe and secured

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.
Dayanna Anderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Polarion ALM

  • More robust engine as far as the actual took is concerned. There are navigation components in trace to reporting which we feel can be improved especially when dealing with cross global accessing of the tool. It slows us down a bit so it's backend driven optimization as well as some front end "clunkiness" that can be improved.
  • Improve some filtering capabilities especially in creating custom reports and generally all around the ALM components of the tool.
  • As of the version we have, the ability to enhance replationship types in traceability is limited.

There is too much at stake to go into a new system. But with everything else being promised as far as newer more innovative products, the justification to not renew is a huge risk so that is not a concern

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.

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.

Polarion is a juggernaut of a tool when it comes to traceability and modelling. And it is far better for task management.

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.

  • Nothing went wrong and no blocker issues so far which impacts the business
  • Some times i feel so frustrated because it always ask me to enter my password for every 2 hrs
