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.

SAP Jam

When you need to create a private, secure space for individuals to collaborate or work on a project together, SAP Jam does a great job at bringing people together and giving them a space to work together in. There are also great ways to provide learning opportunities (including sharing webinars or other educational content)

Pros

Kanban Tool

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

SAP Jam

  • Managing members with the communities is easy (including inviting them to join).
  • Publishing and editing content is easy with the platform.
  • The interface is easy to use and navigate.

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.

SAP Jam

  • Sometimes users get too many notifications from the system which can be overwhelming if they haven't set up their notifications to their standards.
  • Analytics on engagement aren't great.

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.

We are moving toward other platforms that are meant more for virtual community, like Higher Logic. The customer support at SAP Jam is also lacking.

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.

It's an integrated platform that brings together a lot of different people from across the association to work on shared projects, etc. Given the various roles people play and the varying skill sets they bring to the table, the platform is fairly intuitive to use and easy to navigate around

This is the best tool I had a chance to work with- since I started to use it I saved a lot of time and I made my work go smoothly.

We have to submit requests multiple times to get a response and it often feels like they go into a black hole. Because we don't have anyone in house really supporting the back-end of the platform, we rely on SAP Jam's support and development teams to help solve problems and improve the platform for us.

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.

SAP Jam

We actually probably moving to Higher Logic for our virtual community needs -- their interface is better and can more easily integrate with our website to provide a seamless experience for our users. We also want them to be able to toggle between our website and the community platform and it's not currently set up to do that well

Return on Investment

Kanban Tool

  • We have been able to track projects much more efficiently
  • We have had less missed deadlines as we can see where a project is in the workflow
Care Bach Gerland | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Jam

  • Our constituents value community and this has enabled us to be able to bring people together in a secure, virtual space.
  • We are a national association and many of the people that need to collaborate on work projects aren't physically in the same place, so this virtual space has improved work output.
