We did not achieve the outcome that we had hoped. The software was a little more cumbersome and the learning curve was steeper than we would have liked. Our average age employee in our office is 50. It was not easy to get this up and going. We didn't feel like our company size (+/- 50) was the …

The internal model for Jama is sound, and traceability and suspect links are some of the best tools that we have. However, interoperability is not the best, and many times the requirements being provided by other parties needed a lot of massaging before being able to be imported in Jama.

  • Jama Connect has eliminated some basic redundant work and made requirements management and traceability much easier to maintain. This saves time on projects.
  • Collaboration features have made it easier for teams to work on content without having to meet together to make progress.
  • The user interface is not completely intuitive and requires some learning curve for even basic use.

  • Made it easier to know what I'm responsible for, from a work task perspective.
  • Allowed leads/managers to assign work in a more educated manner by seeing workload, etc.
  • Allows clear deliverables and more accurate work estimates, since we can look back at previous examples (assuming there are some).

  • We have saved so much time just using Jama to get requirement approvals and moving forward with engineering development after approvals.
  • Jama has been the center tool around our System Requirements Review.
  • We moved away from Google Docs and Google Sheets to capture requirements.
  • Traceability was acknowledged and integrated by the team, just by having the feature available.

  • We do not measure the Return of Investment. We have moved past the Critical Design Review and moving into construction.
  • We expect to be able to measure ROI in the form of increased contingency in the next phase.
  • Engagement with the tool has not been universal; we had many people relying on the exported Word/PDF documents instead of providing feedback on Jama Connect directly or through reviews. Also many people are using Xray to manage testing of requirements in Jama, and need to integrate with it, currently testing a third-party tool for that.
  • We have been able to apply for a non-for-profit license for JIRA and Confluence; we don't seem to have such a possibility with Jama.

  • Jama has allowed us to maintain our system requirements at a much more rapid pace than previously possible. When a requirement or link needs to be updated, new requirements documents can be generated very quickly. This significantly reduces the pull on our engineering resources and leaves us available for more substantive work.

  • Jama is providing good requirement gathering management which starts our current agile process and helps it run smoothly to quickly deliver objectives in less time.
  • Jama is only providing the approval mechanism for requirements, and that's the difference I see between Jama and JIRA. JIRA is a state management tool and it can be used to gather the requirements.
  • Jama is our golden source of all the requirements. It helped to link the requirements in ALM or in JIRA, which helps to resolve the redundant work as it is compatible to work with Tasktop.

  • Positive ROI for any IT organization that works on client-based projects.
  • From a business point of view, it can consolidate ones work into one place, where a person can see all their project details and workflow in one place.
  • It is better to get client requirements gathered in Jama Connect than messing around with emails to get some specific details that one searches for.
