Redmine is a perfect solution for businesses that are looking for a FREE and open source solution for project management. It is great for teams that are managing numerous tasks or projects at one time. Redmine is easy to set up and is fairly self-explanatory for anyone who is semi tech-savvy.

I am very glad about the working speed of this tool. The comfort and support it has provided us in project management are worth appreciating because Project management is a big deal and using ZenTao has made it easy and fun for us as we can as a team better collaborate. But some of its features need to be fixed.

  • Story could be linked with product, sprint, test case, bug, which makes traceability so great.
  • Test module, with test case, case library, test request, test report, very detailed.
  • On-Premise available, the package is very small based on LAMPP
  • SaaS version even cheaper without your own IT maintenance support.
  • Price really affordable.
  • API call is easy, so that we could do customizations.

Cons
Open Source
  • The design and user-interface are a little outdated. It looks like a product that was designed ten years ago and doesn't have a polished look and feel like newer apps have.
  • It's not particularly designed to support agile-based project management methodologies such as Scrum.

  • The function of ZenTao mobile version is a little weak.
  • ZenTao users need to receive training before they start using the software, because for testers, the first use of the software may be a little complicated, and they cannot execute the same test case multiple times in the same test execution process.
  • Although there are many reports built in. But if you want to get the data yourself,You have to know how to write SQL to customize your reports, which can a little bit challenging.

Redmine is free, easy to use and it's everything you could want in a free project management program. The fact that it has wiki integration and that it can track on such a granular level is amazing. Assigning tasks to other users, such as our development team, is fantastic and ensures we are always up-to-date on where we are what - on what projects.

Jira is a great project management tool for software product life cycle management for an agile environment based on agile methodologies. Jira is an intuitive and modernized user interface design compared with Redmine but Redmine is a lightweight and affordable project management and task tracking solution with its essential features and functionalities.

ZenTao defines bugs, tasks, and stories separately, not just an ISSUE. I can oversee the development from creating a Product Backlog to releasing the increment. I can also collect and record product feedback from the client and share with my team.

  • Customers receive updates on all progress made for their issues -- this results in an informed customer who is being given transparency on all steps of our process.
  • Customers have responded well from being able to not have to track down emails and instead come to a central place for requests.
