Wonderful for process mapping.

It is a good way of providing a full framework for requirements management which is customizable; however, interoperability functions are not its forte. Support for ReqIF or other formats is not provided out-of-the-box.

Cons

Azure DevOps

  • Having a more modern user interface which doesn't feel outdated.
  • VSTS is very development team-centric. Development teams are working very closely with product management, who sets their tasks and priorities. There is no way in VSTS for product managers to develop product roadmaps based on product strategies and trickle that down to user stories for developers. The link between product management and development is missing.
  • Tools like Estimably or something similar for pointing stories in an agile development setting would be very useful, as they are used daily by agile teams.
  • More built-in visual reporting functionality that could be customized would be a huge asset.

  • Risk Management function did not come standard so we didn't get to use it.

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.

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.

Azure DevOps has both excellent paid support from Microsoft and plentiful support online. Microsoft has plentiful sites that show step by step how to do many functions and features. The forums are well stocked with lots of useful information and there are many third-party sites that can easily be found to help out as well.

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

We are moving away from VSTS to Version One since Version One has a better end to end workflow for a product based team (where product and development work very closely together and need to access the same data and communicate in an efficient manner.)

  1. Jama's flexibility to create custom entities/attributes
  2. Review Centre, Trace View, Reading View
  3. Data Traceability

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

  • Positive impact:- They have good features that are very crucial for the organization's development and reporting team.
  • Positive impact:- Every developer is already familiar with Visual Studio's features, so in this sense return of investment is also good.
  • Negative impact:- This technology is becoming obsolete and more advanced technologies are coming onto the market.

  • It is better to get client requirements gathered in Jama Connect than messing around with emails to get some specific details that one searches for.
  • From a business point of view, it can consolidate ones work into one place, where a person can see all their project details and workflow in one place.
  • Positive ROI for any IT organization that works on client-based projects.
