Celoxis
Celoxis is a great option if you are looking for an affordable, easy to use, easy to integrate project manegement solution. It is very powerful for waterfall project management. I evaluated more than 15 platforms and could not find any with a close evaluation in terms of cost-benefit to Celoxis. Of course there are more powerfull tools, for 10 times the price. So far, for project management, there hasn't been a requirement I haven't been able to solve with some work. It really lacks features for Agile methodologies, even if it provides a Kanban view, so far it doesn't provide and additional agile artifacts. If an organization has already reached a very mature project management practice and needs to improve on program and portfolio management, Celoxis won't provide any useful feature. If the organization has the resources (skills and time mostly) to develop some workflows and customization, it might work but with a limit. Hopefully Celoxis addresses these features in the near future.

Well suited:
  • Estimation of user stories in agile team.
  • Recording the estimations and events directly to JIRA.
  • Estimations can be done without leaving JIRA.
  • Best suitable in this pandemic situation as most of the people are working remotely.
  • Different estimation scales are present to adapt as per the team norms for example Fibonacci, T-shirt sizing and custom estimations as well.
Scenarios where it is less suitable:
  • Where only inbuilt chat box from DevSamurai is used. So synchronization is an issue there.
  • And apart from that a consistent internet connectivity is required.

  • Live chat box feature need to be improvised as it still not robust.
  • Integration module should be flexible enough to stick with other workflow tools.

I used an evalaution matrix built with input of several stakeholders in the company. In the end the matrix included 100 features (non of them was price related). The matrix was heavily focused on waterfall project management, agile related features were only 5 out of 100 features. Features were labeled as mandatory, required or optional. Products which lacked a mandatory feature (like providing technical support) were disqualified. Then a price vs features evaluation was made and only the products with the best combination were seleced to continue: Celoxis, ITM Platform and Mission Control. A final technical evaluation was made comparing the full evaluation but also the evaluation of only the 40 required features. Overall, Celoxis was the better evaluated (76% vs 65% of the second place), for the 40 required features, Celoxis got 91% against 78% of number 2. In the end we chose Celoxis even when it had higher licensing cost.

  • Estimation of user stories and updating the JIRA is automated and hence resulted in reduced efforts in poker planning.
  • No need to be present under same roof for estimation, and hence a flexibility which is much required in this scenario.
  • Clients can have a clear and better picture of estimation at any time with all statistics and hence customer sees more transparency.
