Overall Satisfaction with Wrike
We use WRIKE to track our entire technical product portfolio, programs, major features, and release drops. It was initially used for select parts of our technology development teams' activities and later expanded to the whole portfolio after achieving success, and other teams observed the positive results and asked to be able to use it. Wrike allows us to have weekly check-in portfolio reviews of major programs, releases, and feature drops and execute visual management (focus on items where there are issues, overdue or late delivery at risk.) WRIKE output is also used at a higher level at executive reviews to support management reporting to report deliveries on schedule or at risk etc. Lastly, major feature or release items that are in the early planning and prioritization stage are also displayed. This allows all parties to see the work that is NOT being worked on and elevate visibility into these topics, helping eliminate potential disconnects across the organization.

Well suited for portfolio tracking, increased enterprise visibility, and flexibility to be configured for your environment. It can be adopted for the technical and business side of programs and makes it easy to link the two. If priority is integration between your agile software development tools like DevOps or JIRA, there may be some needs better met within those tools, developing or extending them out and or leveraging their partners.
