Overall Satisfaction with JIRA Software

JIRA is being used by our department for agile development and bug tracking, specifically Scrum. It is being used throughout the organization and it really helps with the transparency of the development cycle.
  • JIRA helps the team share information and engage others seamlessly.
  • Enables teams to work together with colleagues using joint-editing tools and monitoring the team’s progress and updates of each task.
  • JIRA boasts a feature-rich service desk implementation that allows each department to collect customer requests instantly, and arrange them in priority queues that improve the productivity of the team and happiness of customers.
  • Jira is very good at helping us manage small, executable development tasks, but it does not meet the need of understanding the full scope of an “Epic” (big project).
  • Our projects run more efficiently
Before Jira, we were developing using the waterfall method. When we migrated to Scrum, we were using sticky notes and a Wiki page. JIRA’s built-in graphing makes it easy to generate and look at burn downs and track velocity.
We use Jira to manage iterations in our software. We have a remote development workforce, so this is the central tool used by our development and product teams for formal communication around issues (stories, bugs, features, etc.).
