Chose Roadmunk
We moved from Roadmunk to Jira to consolidate platforms.
Chose Roadmunk
I was not involved in product selection for Roadmunk, but for our business need, it is much lighter weight and easier to onboard and use than Aha!
Chose Roadmunk
Roadmunk has an actual product management workflow design built into it vs trying to use eg generic e-post-it software like Trello. Trello is better at free-forming prioritization, which is actually much better than (again) the awkward item navigation in Roadmunk, but the …
Chose Roadmunk
In my opinon Roadmunk has the best UX and very friendly interface. The decision to purchase Roadmunk was based also on the great customer service and help provided by the team. Roadmunk team is open to suggestions and is constantly working on their product. It's great to see …

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.

We replaced Trello with Roadmunk for our Roadmapping purposes. For the poor Product Manager and Product Team that is incessantly asked "where is the product roadmap" by Sales and Management, this is the tool for you! Easy, simple, and makes pretty pictures for those constituents. It is less useful for full Requirements documentation. "Ideas" is OK, but too hard to get submissions from non-Roadmunk users, and clunky integration back to the primary road mapping function. Needs an improved editing environment to fully express Reqs using this tool, but it's not that far off!

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.

Tempo
  • The fact that you have to add a date to everything; dates stick to people’s minds.
  • Connecting bars to milestones; unclear which to use when.
  • Collaboration isn’t great; can’t track changes, add comments, etc.

This is because Jira Software generates a huge profit for an affordable price. Having a tool that makes team management transparent and effective is very valuable.
In addition, the renewal of Jira Software and all Atlassian tools is predictable and clear, as the prices are published on the Atlassian website and there is no pyramid of intermediaries.

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.

Some enterprise features were lacking but on an individual basis would be solid.

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.

We never really had to go back to Roadmunk for support, but they do provide a wealth of informative updates that can be consumed at the individual user's own pace.

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.

We've used Google Calendar, Microsoft Office products, Trello, and others. Roadmunk seems to combine the best of all of those, and then offers a little more.
