Overall Satisfaction with Jira Software

I have used Jira Software as a core tool to support software development across globally distributed teams for large, complex software deliveries as well as smaller, routine service deliveries. In both cases, we have employed waterfall, iterative or Agile methodologies with Jira Software as our foundation. I found Jira Software added value in every case. Whether using Jira Software manually or vis automation tied to a business requirements system, Jira Software allows all stakeholders to easily get their arms around the work immediately. Near zero ramp-up time, completely intuitive UI/UX, tons of pre-built reports, exceptional dashboards and widgets (including easy-to-read graphics), super flexible tagging and tons of bells and whistles any user can add on - I love Jira Software. In my opinion, no other software comes close.

  • Automated reminders for stale tickets
  • Global accessibility
  • Flexibility
  • Intuitive and easy to learn UX/UI
  • Empirical KPI
  • Faster, more effect closure of defect loops
  • Fewer missed requirements
Jira Software was already the established enterprise standard supporting my clients’ globally distributed software teams. I feel strongly that no other product could deliver when compared to Jira Software.

Jira Software is extremely well suited for managing anything from a product backlog to a new project or product’s development lifecycle. Tickets may be managed singly or processed in bulk, and existing tickets can be restructured so child and parent tickets can flip roles, or specific ticket types can be moved to a different ticket type that uses a different workflow. Additionally, users have the flexibility of wrapping up all their tickets with a label that readily identifies the collection and allows stakeholders to easily review and drill down within the tagged list. I have not yet encountered a situation where Jira was too onerous or too puny to support my needs.
