Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Kimble

I would score Kimble at an 8 for recommendation, but, truth be told, it would definitely vary depending on what department is using the system. Since we use Kimble throughout the entire organization, I can see the benefits it has in other departments. For example, our resourcing team has become more efficient in timesheet control and the delivery team more aware of their ongoing projects.

  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

Cons

Kanban Tool

  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

Kimble

  • Not the most user friendly interface, a lot of data on many screens.
  • Navigation through different pages is not the smoothest process.
  • More user flexibility around reporting.

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

Alternatives Considered

Kanban Tool

Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.

Kimble

Prior to Kimble, we were using a system called Deltek Traffic Live. This system was sufficient in handling simple small data but was extremely not user-friendly. It required a lot of manual adjustments with exported data since we couldn't tailor the system to our business requirements. Kimble has offered us greater data accuracy, more flexibility, and wider visibility over a larger data set.
