Great to manage your issues in a clear and centralised way. If your development teams work with
, it will all naturally come together. Great way to manage the issues from end to end. - Very flexible if you have people who understands the set up and is able to configure it for your needs - Maybe not the best if you want something with very easy set up

We used a product before that was designed to prevent users making changes and saving files to the desktop computer. This required a renewal of the license. By using SCCM in our environment we were able to discontinue using that product because SCCM allows us to completely restore a machine back to the original configuration. We have taught our users to save their individual work on either a network drive or a cloud drive. By doing this, if we do a re-image of their machine they have lost no data, and it makes for a faster resolution. In some instances having a computer in our SCCM environment it can become cumbersome when creating new users for very specific purposes. It can be done by creating new organizational units and applying new policies but when in a pinch it can be frustrating. For the most part we have tried to make "new" purpose images and groups to at least accommodate a quick install.
Read full review Pros Manageable workflow to ensure all users follow the same process. Can ban boards for easy visual of ticket status. Very flexible tool that can adapt to lots of different uses outside of the traditional service desk model. Added communication tools help you get out of e-mail jail. Read full review Provides our users the ability to deploy and manage our own datacenter based on defined software with understandable solutions for storage, compute, networking and security. We are able to update at once all the computers from all departments without having to install the OS on every computer. It allows us to have everything in one place for database management and datacenter inspection as well. Read full review Cons Ability to control the number of email notifications received (Note: this is a new feature in the Latest release but I personally haven not extensively looked at it and how well it solves the existing problem). No way to reply to multiple tickets at once, say you got 4 tickets in for the same issue, there is no way you can reply to them in one stroke. Other Ticketing systems do have this ability. Using a large number of add-ons to customize and add additional features adds up quickly and can become rather expensive. Request forms are very basic and there is no native dynamic field ability available.

I gave JIRA a score of 9 since I am happy with the service it offers. I can easily see the SLA since it gives me visibility. I can pull up the reports I need. I can reach out to our clients using the PR ticket so it is hassle-free for me.

It is not user-friendly for the most part. With IT infrastructure, sometimes it cannot handle excess requests. Every few months, you will need an upgrade in terms of server resources to keep up with incoming alerts and requests. This does not happen all of the time, but it does happen when there are too many requests.

I have not used the technical support from Atlassian. In terms of online help and resources, they are a bit limited thus making it more of a challenge to troubleshoot issues and learn more functionality. There aren't a lot of resources available on the Atlassian site besides developer documents. It would be nice to have a blog or forum where users can get the help they need.

If I had to dislike something about the system it would be how much it changes once you upgrade. This could be more of a problem of mine since I get used to one way and don't like it when it changes so much. I am enjoying the newest update, but it is a mess when you are actually going through the upgrades.

When I evaluated
, it was not going to be replacing any ticketing systems. However, I did evaluate it and was not extremely impressed by the short demo I did.
was selected because a branch of our company was already using it, so it made sense to consolidate into one service desk solution, and
was the better option since it was less expensive and geared towards being a ticketing system.

We previously used a mix of FOG and Clonezilla to image machines. The biggest issues with these products is that changing one piece of the image required you to rebuild the entire image itself. These pieces of software also did not allow you to manage applications and Windows Updates, causing IT to have to constantly touch machines after they were imaged and update or manage them with a much more hands on approach.
Read full review Return on Investment JIRA has been incredibly useful. Our work is more organized and easier to view by the team members as well as upper-level people. Our work is correctly assigned and when there are issues, they can be immediately addressed within the tool. Users can attach screenshots or files of issues that help clarify the ticket. Developers can attach relevant data as well. Read full review We have been able to automate our patch management, firmware and other security concerns. We have a standardized "image" ensuring our setup is consistent across the enterprise. This alone has saved us in time to support and time to understand how to use our desktops.
