Project planning, project management, and tracking. Live git integration and project monitor make it possible to develop software using Agile methodology. Also if you are on a very small budget, then one should not go for this tool. But great support.

Sciforma

Yes, definitely. We wanted a flexible but robust software and Sciforma seemed to be the best fit

Cons

Backlog

  • Price is very high for small teams and department of short term contracts.
  • GUI can be more intuitive.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sciforma

  • The largest con for me is the clunky UI. It's not very intuitive, and has a larger learning curve to become a proficient user.
  • Reports are functional, but could use some improvements.
  • It can be slow at times, and you have to wait to make sure your changes are saved before moving on.

I would give 9 but one less because of the high price.

This software allows project and portfolio managers to analyze and prioritize projects based on resource allocation and available effort. It helps you compare the sorecast effort with resource availability. You can email, call or tweet them if you have concerns.

Alternatives Considered

Backlog

All of them have their own uniqueness.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sciforma

We were looking at vendors but they didn't meet our expectations and weren't flexible enough.

Return on Investment

Backlog

  • Software interns get easily used to this tool.
  • One who works in the SDLC gets recognized and it's easy to track rank board.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sciforma

  • Before Sciforma we were running projects out of Excel and emails. Using a cloud based application means that everyone is viewing information in real time.
  • Our executive leadership knows that they have one place to go for a real time status on all of our strategic projects.
