Chose Liquibase
Liquibase is head and shoulders better than relying on SQL Compare alone for deployments. I haven't used Flyway, but based on our evaluation, Liquibase seemed to have a lot of functional overlap for considerably less cost. I would recommend the use of GitHub or Bitbucket in …
Chose Liquibase
The main reason for Liquibase and against Flyway is the independence of the RDBMS product used.

Atlassian
The Jira software works well for managing scrum boards and allocating resources to a task. When your Epics and Issues are set up properly, it can give you a good idea of where your team stands and the trajectory of your project. It is not the ideal solution if you need to provide documentation and support to people outside of your product teams or organization. It would benefit from having a public documentation or repository feature.

One of the features that I think is useful is the support for various rollback scenarios and multi-DB support. They also pay attention to their clients, and I believe that the quality metrics feature enables us to apply rules and coding standards specific to our organization. It provides DB pipeline views for changes deployed to DB and quality checks for DB scripts, both of which aid in error detection.

Liquibase
  • Tracking changes through DATABASECHANGELOG table
  • Works with different DB tools (Oracle, SQL etc.)
  • Rollbacks are easier with tag if you have rollback scripts in place.
  • Comparing databases (in different environments) or their states or even creating a new data base with existing changesets.

Cons
Atlassian
  • Management of the software is very difficult at times, although has improved.
  • Ability to manage resources is really non-existent, there are some plugins but they are ALL buggy (I've tested them all).
  • Better integration with Trello, would love to see this happen. Right now it's very clumsy.

Liquibase
  • the build has a very tedious process - taking backup and restoring for every script to be processed
  • Error handling, many errors are left unmanaged due to which finding the root cause of the issue is difficult
  • HTML reports can be optimized for low space
  • Permissions management i.e. in case of the build is failing, permissions can be checked beforehand. rather than failing in process execution.
  • Project creation from TSV files makes it complicated

While there are no fundamental problems with JIRA, I'm unsure that I will be working myself very closely with users of Atlassian Confluence. The client base I am concerned with tend to be more integrated with Amazon, IBM BlueMix / Watson, open source LAMP/PHP (WordPress, MediaWiki) & those that rely on more proprietary CMS would tend to use Sharepoint not Confluence. JIRA seems to me to stand or fall with the rest of the Atlassian silo or suite, as it is not closely integrated with Sharepoint or mediawiki based reporting or knowledge management. Data interchange standards in this area are weak so Microsoft, open source LAMP projects using Phabricator, and Atlassian JIRA seem to be three distinct silos, with Amazon, Google & IBM offering their own tools for similar needs.

Usability
Atlassian
JIRA Software is a pretty complex tool. We have a project manager for JIRA who onboarded us, created our board, and taught us the basics. I think it would have been pretty overwhelming to learn without her. JIRA offers so much functionality that I'm not aware of -- I constantly need to Google or ask others about existing features. Also, although they are all under the Atlassian umbrella, I find it difficult to switch between JIRA Software and Confluence.

Support Rating
Atlassian
Our JIRA support is handled internally by members of our Product Support team. It is not supported by a 3rd party. Our internal support will always sent out notifications for downtime which is usually done on the weekend unless it is required to fix a bug/issue that is affecting the entire company. Downtime is typically 3-4 hours and then once the maintenance is complete, another broadcast email is sent out informing the user community that the system is now available for use.

Initially the support was very informative and the onboarding process was without hindrance. But when we needed help from support while using the tool, the response was not fast and less informative on how to get past the issue, and this held up more downtime. This was not the case every time, but a little improvement on this aspect would be appreciated.

One of their strong points i stheir documentation. Almost all of the basic set up needed within JIRA is available online through atlassian and its easy to find and very precise. The more critical issues need to be addressed as well and hence the rating of 8 instead of a 9.

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

Jira Software has more integrations and has more features than many of its competitors. While some of its competitors do have better UI/UX than Jira Software, they have improved this greatly over time. Atlassian also acquired Trello years ago, so that adds better user interfaces to the system. They do also offer a pretty in-depth library of how to customize the platform that others don't.

To be honest, the option of having a free community plan to start testing in a test environment, followed by taking it in production a few months is a great way to evaluate wether or not to do the subscription based plan.

  • We have been able to set up CI/CD from the very start of our project because of Liquibase. This has allowed us to iterate better and move faster in our implementation.
  • Liquibase support has been extremely helpful in addressing questions and problems, requiring less time relying on scouring the internet for solutions.
  • The changelog system has made it easier for my colleagues who are not super SQL savvy to quickly implement new database changes with confidence.
