Overall Satisfaction with Atlassian JIRA

I've used JIRA in my previous role at a different company that I left a couple months ago. I plan to implement it in my new role and company. JIRA has been a game changer for me both personally and professionally. I am way more organized for tasks and projects then ever before. The use of the JIRA Plug-in which allows me to use Kanban has been very helpful. I would recommend the product to anyone who loves to keep projects moving along and organized.
  • Electronic Kanban board is helpful for project management and software development.
  • Easy to install and learn.
  • The cost is minimal compared to MS Sharepoint.
  • The menu structure could take some getting use to. I still find myself searching for different areas under the menu options.
  • Quicker project completion with less staff on hand.
  • Visibility for entire time. No longer are questions ask regarding where a project stands.
I use JIRA in conjunction with Confluence. They are great products!
I am renewing the contract because I need a system that can track every step of the project management cycle. I also need a product that has an attractive price point.
For those using SharePoint and other products I would ask the question of whether it is worth making the investment in JIRA. It is a great product, but if you have something that you've already invested money in, it may be a good idea to wait on the purchase.
