Overall Satisfaction with Jira Software

Jira was implemented to track all Product development, customizations, and customer production support tasks in the Argentina solution center. Product development teams keep track of user stories, development tasks, and test cases, while product support attending customers keeps track of bugs or product enhancements, using a single tool that also integrates with other internal/legacy tools.
  • Very customizable, workflows can be defined based on company definitions.
  • Improves communication and access to information. It is easy to understand each item's status, priority, and responsible person.
  • Allows us to prioritize tasks and estimate delivery dates.
  • May have too many options for small and simple projects, making it a little hard to use for starter users.
  • It is more expensive that other options.
  • Help does not cover all options.
  • Integration with other tools (Confluence, etc.).
  • Ability to customize and configure workflows and rules.
  • Easy filtering options.
  • Adaptable to most frequent used agile methodologies.
  • Unified development and support tasks in a single tool.
  • Collaboration between teams.
  • Quicker response times and better visibility of tasks status.
I personally use Trello to keep track of personal stuff and used it as a task management tool for very small development teams/projects, but Jira is a million miles ahead of it regarding a number of options and customizations. I also used Rally on a previous company and although it is a quite complete tool I think Jira offers more options, mostly regarding customizations.

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

Would you buy Jira Software again?


It is great to manage a software center or big development teams. It includes all options that are usually needed to manage the product development cycle and it has many customization/configuration options that allow it to adapt to your organization's processes. It is a little too complex for small teams and the effort to customize it may be too much compared with other less complete but still acceptable solutions.

Using Jira Software

200 - All Engineering and Management Team members use the tool, from Senior Management (use dashboard to analyze project status), Product Managers (define and prioritize development tasks), and development team members (Software Architects, Software Developers, and Testers) to develop and test features, track and solve defects and request and develop product enhancements.
  • Manage workload
  • Prioritize tasks and resource assignment.
  • Reduce delivery time.
Without taking into account pricing (I do not know the details but it is more expensive than other options) the product allows us to design, develop and deliver software products in a simpler, more integrated, and visible way. Information and status about tasks, enhancements, and bugs are easily available for all members of the organization.

Using Jira Software

The software is quite easy to use once you get used to it. Some effort is required to configure and customize options and workflows, but once everything is set up as desired and you get used to the tool it delivers what is expected.
