A must tool for any SW development company

2019-10-30

I am using JIRA for SDLC activities, post production operations management (defect tracking and resolution), time sheets, project planning.

Pros

The possibilities with JIRA for any SW development company to manage their project are endless: e.g. track resource capacity/availability, manage sprints/defects/task, track project profitability with burnup-charts, track progress for each task/sub-task/etc.

Cons

Maybe not really a con but it does take some time for a new user to catch all the features that JIRA can offer.

Project tracking and task prioritization has become a very easy task with JIRA.

Pros

Too many notification emails, I'm not sure if that is configurable that what all events should trigger a notification email but for me as of now for each and every event there is a corresponding notification email.

Pros

Easy transition to any other system Straight forward usage Can adapt to any team/project workflow Easy to organize long term features using epics Linking stories can help on team collaboration

Cons

No easy access on mobile phone Time tracking is not a priority out of the box Same goes for reporting on team utilization Is focused a lot on project management but not necessarily on team management/allocation

Great project planning and management using agile

2020-09-28

Jira is my favorite project management tool I’ve used (trello, zenhub, pivotal tracker), it has great features for running projects in agile and it also provides great reporting capabilities

Pros

Jira is a great tool for teams working in agile (scrum or Kanban) providing features for project planning and management to backlog management to progress tracking. You can easily create new tasks and assign and tag users as owners.

Cons

Creating the customized views requires you to set up rules with logic which is not the most intuitive for business users.

Best and easiest tool to use for project tracking and task management

2021-01-07

Easy to learn and use and so far best project management tool I've worked with.

Pros

Using this tool almost for more than 2 years and so far the best tool to manage tasks and projects specially in agile or incremental delivery set up.

Cons

No team collaboration tool inbuilt therefore related tasks such as story point voting are done using another collaborative tool and later updated to the stories and tasks.

Using Kanban and Scrum boards on JIRA since 2 Years and pretty good experience and happy till now.

2017-12-10

Elegant Project Management tool makes it easy to keep a track of multiple projects and their timelines and supporting existing projects.

Pros

Nice, clean and Elegant UI. Has ability to connect to most of the cloud services available like integrates with AWS codestar and show up on the dashboard and also others like salesforce, Github etc.

Cons

when customized heavily usability becomes difficult. The steep learning curve to utilize JIRA to the best of its potential. Important addons are a bit expensive.

Best SDLC project management tool

The best project management tool for development tracking, testing , version management and deployment of projects.

Pros

Project management tool to track the development velocity (assign the task to developers, identify the time taken to complete each tasks, developers can enter comments and hours taken to complete each task).

Cons

Initially it was difficult for me to understand the layout and setup the tool.If there are multiple projects to handle the emails can be overwhelming.

Excellent Project Management Software

2017-05-18

No more email chains and lost attachments, just clear reporting and time tracking and project management.

Pros

It's great because you can track time and progress to see where people are in the scope of work.

Cons

Because it is so feature rich, it can be a bit intimidating to use at first, but you quickly get the hang of it.

Review of Jira

2019-01-24

Jira isn't perfect, but for professional purposes, it's the best software I've used yet and has made our work as a team much more efficient.

Pros

You can customize task/project buckets and export everything in custom reports to review as a team.

Cons

Apart from the searchable aspect of the UI and the ease of moving and updating projects (epics), the UI can be difficult and confusing to navigate.

The plugins are really helpful and the dashboard widgets help get a wholistic picture of the ongoing projects

Pros

The Scrum boards are very light weight and handy to manage backlog and Sprint planning and execution

Cons

Eazy BI report plugging is bit lethargic and difficult to operate upon
