Overall Satisfaction with Jira Software

Jira Software is used to [organize] and track our work. We have multiple backlogs and boards, each team with it's own. It is used across the whole [organization] and addresses our need for quantifying the progress on our tasks.
  • Jira is particularly good at holding all our goals and tasks, all of them being well described within the software and
  • Jira has integration with a lot of 3rd party tools
  • Navigation between boards and backlogs is seamless, all of them being linked to each other
  • Posting URL's in comments is auto-transformed into text preview of that URL and there is no setting to avoid it.
  • Integration with even more 3rd party tools would be nice
  • Backlog of cards/tasks and boards for each team
  • The ability to customize the view of boards and backlogs
  • Tracking the progress of tasks with custom checklists
  • Jira has positively made our company's daily activities much better organized
  • With Jira we can track progress and follow up on tasks
  • Jira has great reporting tools which aggregate various data and give us a good overview of our teams capacity
Score has more features like CRM and billing but overall Jira is much better suited for development lifecycle management.

Do you think Jira Software delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Jira Software's feature set?


Did Jira Software live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Jira Software go as expected?


Would you buy Jira Software again?


The best scenario for Jira Software is for a software development company operating in Agile/Scrum. Jira has a tracking/organizing software and also an article/Wiki software (Confluence) which are great for holding knowledge and organizing priorities.
For product managers/owners it is a great software for breaking large goals into smaller tasks, organizing and prioritizing them accordingly and then collaborating with other parties on the progress.

A less appropriate use would be for service delivery companies as their needs are different.
