Azure DevOps Services

Azure DevOps is an excellent option for companies looking to streamline their development pipeline and code repository. It is highly collaborative and extremely easy to use. Our company is also using it within our IT Operations department to track infrastructure related work efforts as well and it has been very successful for that as well. Smaller companies may be able to use GitHub and other cheaper solutions for this type of work.

Jama Connect

The Review Center is a very useful tool where you can share the project with read-only access to a large group and manage comments and reviews without giving access to the actual project page. The stats can be maintained on who has completed their review and progress can be monitored. It is well well suited for all SDLC methodologies and very effective in both Agile and Waterfall models. Automation of test runs and uploading of results with the application is still not possible at the moment. Needs to be stored in a spreadsheet and imported into Jama.

Pros

Azure DevOps Services

  • Flexible Requirements Hierarchy Management: AZDO makes it easy to track items such as features or epics as a flat list, or as a hierarchy in which you can track the parent-child relationship.
  • Fast Data Entry: AZDO was designed to facilitate quick data entry to capture work items quickly, while still enabling detailed capture of acceptance criteria and item properties.
  • Excel Integration: AZDO stands out for its integration with MS Excel, which enables quick updates for bulk items.

Jama Connect

  • Product requirements: a nice and easy way of writing requirements, keeping them classified and organized
  • Requirements review: the information to review is displayed intuitively in the User Interface and adding your review comments is enabled for every line item in an individual paragraph
  • Administration: for a cloud application the administrative features are extensive with an acceptable level of details

Cons

Azure DevOps Services

  • Column sorting when in filtered states.
  • A way to show cross-team dependencies.
  • A customized "From" field for notifications. Sometimes when a mail comes from Azure DevOps the teams do not realize that I am sending it
  • A way to do online poker that doesn't require a plug-in.

Jama Connect

  • The newer versions of Jama seemingly do not show reviews with just the sections that have been changed. This makes navigation difficult as you have to go through each section to see if there have been changes made.
  • Jama connector used to come free for defect tracking (interfaced with JIRA), but now it does not so the process has become manual.

I don't think our organization will stray from using VSTS/TFS as we are now looking to upgrade to the 2012 version. Since our business is software development and we want to meet the requirements of CMMI to deliver consistent and high quality software, this SDLC management tool is here to stay. In addition, our company uses a lot of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, Asp.net, etc, and since VSTS/TFS has proved itself invaluable to our own processes and is within the Microsoft family of products, we will continue to use VSTS/TFS for a long, long time.

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.

Usability

Azure DevOps is a powerful, complex cloud application. As such there are a number of things it does great and something where there is room for improvement. One of those areas would be in usability. In my opinion it relies too much on search. There is no easy way to view all projects or to group them in a logical way. You need to search for everything.

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.

When we've had issues, both Microsoft support and the user community have been very responsive. DevOps has an active developer community and frankly, you can find most of your questions already asked and answered there. Microsoft also does a better job than most software vendors I've worked with creating detailed and frequently updated documentation.

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

Azure DevOps Services

For the last 4- 5 years I have only used VS. We can't imagine switching to another product. It is secure, reliable, intuitive, and easy to use. If we need to add compatibility of other language with this, then we need to simply add the Plugin and use it .

Jama Connect

Jama has a lot going for it. Although it may not seamlessly plug in from the get-go into ALM tools or be an ALM tool itself, I believe it has a very bright future. In comparison to Rational Doors, we believe for our needs, it is much more of an bang-for-the-buck and feature rich for the amount of time needed to get up and running. We believe it is also more stable than Doors. Since it is not an ALM application, it would not be fair to compare it to one but if Jama expands into that market aggressively, it can be a viable player.

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.

Return on Investment

Azure DevOps Services

  • When I first VSTS it was with a team of developers who always work on their own. This project was the first one at the company that used six developers all work on the same product at the same time. Integrating someone else code into the system was an unknown entity. VSTS really helped move this new collaboration forward. The staff who were on this team then moved on work together on other teams because they knew how to handle this type of work.
  • The learning curve on VSTS is quite large so make sure you have some of your best starting anew VSTS project. They will fail a few times but after a few mistakes they will get how to do things and your build, tests and deployments will all be automated.
  • The user integration into VSTS is very good. As long as you developers can use Team Foundation Server source control, either Microsoft's or git, then they already have the permission to have VSTS access source control. This is very good.

  • All the innovation-centric companies are adopting Jama. They have big customers like SpaceX, NASA, Fairchild Semiconductor to name a few. They also have very small companies and startups as their customers. One can conclude that the ROI is surely positive and significant.
