Brilliant and Flexible Requirements Management Tool, Rigid and Limited for Other Uses

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

For requirements management, JAMA is very effective. They've nailed that. Once you start moving into other areas, it starts dropping off in functionality. JAMA seems to have taken a more rigid approach to these other areas (test management, design reviews, traceability, risk management). If only they could design these other areas to be as wonderfully flexible as the core requirements management functionality.

Great Requirements Management Tool!

Likelihood to Recommend

Jama is well suited for any level of requirement management. It's particularly helpful when you have several layers of requirements and several subsystems that interact. For very simple projects, however, with a limited number of requirements, Jama would still be beneficial, albeit less than the more complex projects.

Great at requirements management and traceability - Not so great connecting to other industry tools

We really like Jama Reviews for teams and Baselines for requirements. Traceability is well-structured although it has no flexibility with the relationships between types. It is very easy to drag and drop to rearrange the product requirements. I don't like the export capability or reporting. There is a lot of work to do to get the metrics we need from Jama Connect in Excel.

JAMA Connect Requirement Management Tool

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Jama Connect is well suited as an internal product management tool. The review center is great to review requirements electronically instead of sitting in a meeting to review them. Version control creates a great audit trail. The data exports to MS Office products have format issues. Time is wasted on document format revisions to send over to customers.

Jama Connect as a transformation facilitator to improve Requirement and Test management implementation

This tool is perfect to manage System of Systems until product level projects for TM, RM point of view. TM is also very easy to use and highly configurable to take into account most of our needs. Moreover through the RestAPI it bring lots of capabilities to interface with automated test tools. The ability of Jama Connect to manage libraries is also very appreciated to help the projects to focus mostly on the dedicated new requirements concerning their context, saving and securing time on what is reusable and already approved by experts. Review center and Baseline management are also great features provided by Jama Connect to secure the collaboration between teams and the configuration management.

A good way to maintain requirement: Jama

Likelihood to Recommend

The Review Center is a very useful tool where you can share the project with read-only access to a large group and manage comments and reviews without giving access to the actual project page. The stats can be maintained on who has completed their review and progress can be monitored. It is well well suited for all SDLC methodologies and very effective in both Agile and Waterfall models. Automation of test runs and uploading of results with the application is still not possible at the moment. Needs to be stored in a spreadsheet and imported into Jama.

For any project in which you need to document detailed requirements, especially software development, Jama would be well suited for use. For small, simple projects that would not have change cycles or detailed functionalities that need to be documented, it would be less appropriate to use Jama.

It gives the bulk of data sorted in different fields more layered and systematic representation. We get to know at every level when and where and who all made the changes to any field. Until now, we didn't find any scenario where it is not suited.

Jama Connect is fantastic if it is used for a comprehensive review of a large document or documents containing provisional information. It makes tracking all changes made to every single area very easy. I wouldn't use Jama Connect for reviews that are small in scale, as I believe Jama Connect is best suited to handle large projects.

Working on any client implementation with a large number of requirements is a great place to use Jama. The team organization it provides has hands down been a great booster in productivity for my team.

Jama- a nice thought but not worth the clicks

Well-suited: if you are creating a business rules document or requirements document from scratch, this could be an efficient and very organized way to get started.

Less appropriate: if you have documentation that you are trying to fit into this format, it is a nightmare to enter your existing information.

Jama is well-suited on some minor projects in the Life Science Industry. It's also well-suited for Project Management/Project Traceability. As mentioned earlier, we need more enhancements to Testing Management.

It is a good way of providing a full framework for requirements management which is customizable; however, interoperability functions are not its forte. Support for ReqIF or other formats is not provided out-of-the-box.

Likelihood to Recommend

Given our current process, Jama Connect presents some clear improvements. Obviously, it's ability to scale to large programs will be key. At the same time, having a centralized repository for documents, comments, etc., will allow for a rich integration of products and the ability to quickly perform an impact analysis. Most importantly, Jama Connect will need to pull from other tools that are currently in use to integrate itself into the process.

Jama Review from a Jama Power User

Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Jama is good for most applications. It is highly configurable which allows for a lot of freedom but relies on the organization to outline their desired process and definition of completion. As a power user, Jama has much of the functionality that we need but is missing a lot of the UX elements that encourage users, particularly new users or users who do not use Jama often, to engage with the tool. Its existing integration platforms are also subpar. Generally speaking, I would encourage other orgs to use Jama but would give them some details as to what challenges or limitations to expect.

Likelihood to Recommend

Jama Connect is well suited if you talk about working together across the globe because this platform provides user connectivity with the project to not one but many colleagues at the same time. It is very important for any Project or Process to be circulated to each and every member involved in it so that there is no confusion about any area or topic and Jama plays crucial role in that. We just need to put all the information once on the portal and every related member can have access to that at same time. Any changes, chats, activity is circulated to everyone.

Jama is well suited for capturing requirements across the board for internal and external review. It is great for projects with multiple teams working together and going back and forth with clients for reviews. Easy to toggle between internal and external notes.

Jama Connect makes ones work too easy if one can get handy with it. There are so many features to explore in it.

Just one thing is that a new user will need to explore Jama Connect very deeply by oneself as there are no tutorials for all of the icons present in Jama to explain their functionality.

A great tool for change control & change management. It's Cloud-based making it readily accessible by all. Great tool for team collaboration, report generation and progress tracking across the board. One can determine if a reviewer/approval has accessed and began a review. Provides a great progress report and due date reminder tracking.

We use it for system documentation, but it could easily be used for any structured data need. I give it a 9 out of 10 only because I'd like to see tighter integration with JIRA for tasking.

It is well suited as a business tool holding all the client related requirements and documents at a single place. It is less suited in the place of a daily work tool. The main reason for that can be the session time outs.
