Creation of user stories is an icing on the cake for a developer. JIRA helps to understand the nitty gritty and breaking down the complexity of a user story. Prioritizing the task and delivering it through sprints is a top notch feature. This tracking mechanism gives more visibility for the Managers and Scrum masters to discuss and address any issues along the way of development.
In short: JIRA helps to keep the delivery iterative and incremental.
- Reports though a fantastic feature, seems overwhelming sometimes.
- Creation of tasks and sub tasks is cumbersome.
- Even though the development tasks are completed, the user/developer has to always log in his/her timings periodically. This sometimes causes an issue with testers, since the AC defined is for a certain set of tasks, but the tester then tries to find issues post the development.
This , even though a new requirement, gets tracked as a bug. Which always has a negative impact on the burn down charts
Maintaining a team's focus is a challenging task for any product development teams following Agile development. Bringing in a perception of transparency among the team helps the manager adhere to the standards of delivery and always keep track of what is being delivered.
The main business problem UpRaise helps address is by providing an agile performance management tool like jira that helps track development from the prologue to epilogue of delivery
