"Clunky, complicated project management software"

What do you like best?

Nearly any project question could be answered using the data sources, filters, and reporting provided. Once you're proficient, you can hop around and answer nearly any question you'd like. The best portfolio management tools include parent/child portfolio relationships and the ability to copy tasks. If you're using some form of agile, this software helps you out - we use "scrumban" to PM learning development projects.

What do you dislike?

It's clunky, unattractive and difficult to use - it's just not user friendly and has fairly significant limitations. You can't produce project status reports or create meaningful timelines out of it. If you don't spend a fair amount of time upfront to customize your views, you'll be digging for awhile to get the answers that you need. It always surprised me when a PM would ask how to find something that I'd customize and then I'd check out where they were looking - it was fairly obvious that the system isn't really established to make life easy until you're pretty competent in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're using an agile approach to product development, certainly consider the product; however, ensure your implementation/rollout/training plan is sufficient to allow for the steep learning curve such as we experienced during its introduction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to get a clear view of the overall company portfolio and portfolio prioritization. The primary use of the software is to plan people's time and to resource new work. We were able to do this fairly well - the biggest gap was the amount of time it would take to keep things up to date meant that often during resource planning, we'd have incomplete data to make decisions on. PMs were frustrated with trying to keep this software up to date, knowing that with its limitations, they were working in other software options to produce things like status reports, project timelines, calendar invites, and budgets.

"Complex and Focused On Engineering but Good Reporting"

What do you like best?

Once a group of users or team adopt VersionOne and populate projects etc, there are great visualizations that can be generated from the data. It takes a lot of work to get to this point but the burn up, burn down, velocity, and other charts are good tools for simplifying large amounts of information for higher ups.

What do you dislike?

The speed of the web app is...uh, slow. It was very difficult to use especially on our moderate enterprise network. Very frustrating, to be honest. Additionally, the learning curve for getting up and running and productive is large with VersionOne. The price of the flexibility and configurability of this tool is the extensive learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My personal recommendation based upon extensive use for many projects and applications would be to find a different solution for your agile or project management or work-organization needs. VersionOne is too complex, slow, broad, etc to be extremely useful (based upon my experience and the experiences of our 15+ engineering team).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our business unit used VersionOne for about two years in an attempt to implement a blended agile/waterfall development environment. The tool has been used successfully in other business units in our enterprise but, ultimately, VersionOne wasn't useful for our team in the long-term.

What Product Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Very Good tool for Agile "

What do you like best?

The simplicity and ease of handling the tool and requirement.

- quickly any new person can come up to speed and understand how it works

- Easy way to manage all requirements (stories), efforts burned and testing/defect logging for a project.

What do you dislike?

- Can be unstable sometimes

- sometimes when multiple sprints are closed and access provided to users it acts crazy and takes away rights from people to see old data need to fix them.

- Sometimes even when nothing is selected in filters it behaves crazy and removes items. Sometimes it can be fixed by clicking 'remove all filters' and so invisible filters can be removed but sometimes it cannot be done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Ease of use and many things can be done in it easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Agile product development

- managing requirements

- managing efforts

- managing test cases/ test suites

- managing progress over the period and current development cycle and many more benefits .

"Version One experiences user"

What do you like best?

Although incredibly complex, the interface is simple. You can use parts of the system happily, even if you don't need all the parts.

Drag and drop are cool features.

What do you dislike?

If you get too many projects in the XML hierarchy, it slows down. It would also be better if they did not call them projects, but something more generic, since, projects are a bit antithetical to agile.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We evaluated Rally and CA as options. And then, evaluated them again, 5 years into implementation. Still like Version One.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have 200+ agile teams that use Version One to run their scrum teams. We also use it to track cross-team and cross-project tasks and teams.

"Solid Product, but can be complicated"

What do you like best?

Hands down, the team rooms are the single best feature that VersionOne has to offer. The team rooms offer a place to see your team's (and only your teams) backlog, a storyboard for the current sprint, taskboard for the current sprint and a slew of other options. It also includes the mini-game 'Estimably' which helps teams estimate stories anonymously without an confusion as to what story we are actually estimating. Overall, it's a great feature and makes it really easy to dive in and get a quick birds eye of where the team stands.

What do you dislike?

Looking at the product backlog can be very confusing. VersionOne doesn't include (at least in my implementation) a marker of which Epic, or if you are in the team room, which project a story belongs too. We had to adjust the naming convention of the stories to include an acronym describing which feature epic and which functional epic the story comes from.

Additionally, VersionOne for whatever reason, renamed everything to do with Epics in their platform to "Portfolio Items." Which to anyone with a scrum background is generally pretty confusing. I'm not sure why they made the change and while at it's heart it's just a label change, it's annoying that the deviated from standard agile terminology.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's a lot of great features within VersionOne that you won't find anywhere else. But what it makes up in innovative features, it falls down in that it's not quite as customization as some of other competitors on the market. VersionOne has a clear vision of how you should be using the product, and deviating from the vision is difficult to successfully implement.

There are some features of the application that were implemented without a clear goal in mind, such as the "Add an Inline Story." On the surface, it looks like a quick easy to add a story. But there aren't options to add in Epics or Sub-epics to keep track of where the story goes. Outside of the backlog, where the functionality exists, it's not clear what happened to the story and it's not easy to track down in your portfolio view.

Additionally, with all the innovative features comes an 'innovative' price tag. Many of the innovative features will probably be overkill for smaller, and there are more affordable options. For larger organizations, the transparency and planning across many teams and many products makes VersionOne a much more attractive option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a large organization implementing agile development across multiple teams, in multiple locations/countries. VersionOne allows us to have greater transparency up and down the line -- from the the status of a portfolio of products, down to the status of a specific story in a given sprint. The reporting has allowed us to project well in advance on the health of the project and raise concerns to upper management much earlier than we would have been able to in the waterfall method.

"I'm really hoping for VersionTwo"

What do you like best?

Managing an Agile project, I really like the Storyboard view: it shows me the salient bits of everything in the current sprint as well as Closed and upcoming in the backlog, on a single screen. Some of the capabilities to generate burndown charts are also very well done, assuming you are happy with what the software produces as-is.

What do you dislike?

So many things. It's simply not intuitive. I'd happily rip it out in favor of Bugzilla. For issue tracking purposes, the very relevant bits to me include description, attachments, and resolution, but those things take some scanning to find on the issue screen and attachments particularly takes several clicks to access hidden away. The fact that neither the software engineers nor the project managers generally like this tool is pretty indicative of weakness.

Like a lot of Agile project management tools, VersionOne is extensively configurable, which is good and bad: you have infinite ways to make it fit your workflow, but it can create a pretty high barrier to entry for newer users, admins, as well as to those whose roles does not require them to live & breathe in the tool but get too intimidated to even dabble.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take it, Pivotal Tracker, JIRA, and anything else you're considering through a test drive, running an example week-long project through each,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For those few who learn the tool, it helps reinforce Agile thinking and practices.

"Awesome tool for tracking agile progress"

What do you like best?

It's awesome tool for tracking progress of each sprint in agile development. There are lots of cool and nice features version one. Mainly Task board, Planning room and effort tracking are such awesome features that I really like

What do you dislike?

Actually for there is nothing for dislike in version one but it consist lots of features so its bit difficult to understand every feature of version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its awesome tool for tracking progress of each sprint in agile development. I would really recommend this tool to peoples who works in agile development. All of the feature provided by this tool are very awesome.

But you need one admin for hosting this tool in your environment. So it may cost more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using version one in agile development for tracking progress of each sprint and PSI. Its very usefully to keep track of capacity of every team member and track there effort during sprint

"Ultimate and easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is really build in a user friendly manner, one can not confused or frustrate to use it.

I used it in one of my project and it is really beneficial for me and my team to work with this software.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at all, i used it for almost more than 6 months and nothing needs to improve according to me, really satisfied.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used it for Project management and bug management and it really helps in a project.

I currently used other tool for the same purpose but i loved working with VersionOne.

"version one"

What do you like best?

It's easy to track tasks and work items in this too. We work in two-week sprints, and because I support multiple business lines, version one makes it easy to justify when I can work on certain products and when I cannot, then bring to the table the competing product demands and let management decide my priorities.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Version One can be very difficult to navigate. I find myself having to click around different menus to get to where I want to go. I think the workflow could be smoother.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Management has been trying to report up activities to the corporate big wigs. I think they have gone overkill in the type of statistics they are presenting and it's an onerous burden at my level creating minutiae of detail that is meaningless.

"Many features, decent UI"

What do you like best?

I like the task boards and story boards that I can filter to see the stories that I am looking for, such as seeing stories that are assigned to certain users during a specific iteration. Pretty intuitive UI as for moving stories around and marking off hours.

What do you dislike?

From my experience, it doesn't allow for collaboration on stories with comments and such very well. For example, it would be nice if our tester could put a story from "done" to "in progress" with a comment saying the reason for the change (what is failing and how). Currently our testers either edit the description to add the reason... or send out an email.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of stories to help things move through and help people know what they are working on.

"Good Agile Scrum Process Management Tool"

What do you like best?

Verison one works excellent for Scrum Agile SDLC. It has a decent UI and easy to navigate. Moving the stories around using the drag and drop is nice. Adding tasks and tracking hours is great. Burn-down chart on the scrum board helps to track the progress of the scrum team well.

Integrates well with github. As new built is triggered from a artifact on github, the build version is updated to the story on VersionOne.

What do you dislike?

VersionOne could have a better UI for the scrum board.

VersionOne for a user need to have its own username/password. I don't know this is how my company had it set up. It would be better if it can use the company SSO and password.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall a great tool for Scrum agile process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

VersionOne is currently used by our IT department to Scrum workflow. We have 3 weeks sprint. The benefits of VersionOne as a developer, its easy to navigate, sends instant emails if any conversations happens, easy to manage the backlog, create templates for stories, burn-down chart has excellent display to view the progress and alerts the developer if the story passes the threshold sitting on the same column more than few days.

"Robust Agile Software"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that the software fulfills all the principles of agile. It has all the bells and whistles like sprint planning etc.

What do you dislike?

It slows down quite significantly when loading huge amounts of Stories/defects. When reading the story accidental clicks and unclicks cause description of story to be change. Images flow out of screen sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has all the bells and whistles that an agile software should have. Go for it.

"Better than nothing, but stuck in dot-com era UX-wise. "

What do you like best?

Comprehensive feature suite allows a lot of integrations and capabilities making V1 a desirable product for enterprise large scale customers. Especially those whose employees are already used to using antiquated software. (seriously)

What do you dislike?

The prevalence of pop-up windows (really guys, 2004 called, and it wants its' pop-ups back, stat) and the user experience which is apparently designed by developers instead of real UX designers. You can tell because it can do everything yet you can find nothing when you need it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try Jira by Atlassian or Pivotal Tracker first. The UIs are more modern and have a simpler feature set. If you need a specific integration only V1 provides, then maybe it is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Typical Agile/Scrum methodology. Planning user stories, sprints, managing product backlog are fine once you get used to the software.

"VersionOne - AGILE MADE EASIER & All-in-One Agile Lifecycle Management"

What do you like best?

VersionOne is an all in one agile project management platform that supports alignment between all three levels of enterprise agile project management (Portfolio, Program, and Team). Built from the ground up to support agile software development methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, XP, SAFe® and hybrid, VersionOne's suite of right-sized product editions help companies scale agile faster, easier, and smarter.

Leverage a single system for planning and tracking all of your epics, stories, themes, defects, tasks, tests and issues. VersionOne gives you unparalleled visibility across multiple teams, projects and agile portfolios, providing a centralized environment where all your stakeholders – executives, managers, product owners, developers, and testers - can easily work together regardless of location.

Basically, it help you streamline the scrum process by allowing you to input your values into templates that are set up for you. Once these values have been inputted, they automatically create charts, including the burn-down chart, for you. These software tools were made to make your life easier by giving you a structure to work with and doing the scrum basics for you.

What do you dislike?

Pitfalls of Scrum Software Tools

The main problem with V1 is that it is not a specific scrum tool. It tries to fit into a variety of niches, which could cause your teams to have some problem using the tool. If you do plan on using this tool, you will probably need a scrum trainer to teach your team how to adequately use this software. Finally, the templates that V1 uses are of a different type than are generally used in the industry.

Besides the obvious glitches listed above, there are additional problems with using software tools.

1. The team spirit can fall by the wayside. Software tools can cause your teams to stop communicating. Since a particular team member is simply inputting his/her own work into the computer system, they may just focus on their own tasks and stop sharing with the rest of the group.

2. Software tools can break down. While it's true that whiteboards can accidentally be erased, whole software systems can break down on a dime. If you need a particular tool and it stops working, you could be ,to quote a cliché, up the creek without a paddle. What if it's the software administrator's day off or he/she is on a cruise to Africa? It could be quite a long time before you can get back to work.

A software tool could be a time suck. You could waste nearly half of your sprint trying to fix your tool as opposed to completing your main project. So, you should be careful when deciding to adopt a particular scrum software tool. The old whiteboard and sticky may still be your best bet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most people who practice scrum use some rather low-tech methods: whiteboards, stickies or notepads. And, there's nothing wrong with these methods. On the market, however, are several software tools meant to make your life easier. Version One is one of the popular tool.

Basically, both versions help you streamline the scrum process by allowing you to input your values into templates that are set up for you. Once these values have been inputted, they automatically create charts, including the burn-down chart, for you. These software tools were made to make your life easier by giving you a structure to work with and doing the scrum basics for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can keep track of your work with the taskboard function. You can also manage your backlog. Plus, you can create your own electronic whiteboard for your sprints.

Basically, it help usstreamline the scrum process by allowing us to input our project values into templates that are set up for our team. Once these values have been inputted, they automatically create charts, including the burn-down chart, for us. These software tools were made to make our life easier by giving us a structure to work with and doing the scrum basics for us.

"VersionOne Provides Insight Into my Backlog"

What do you like best?

Clear visibility into product/release/sprint backlogs. Clear visibility of what is being worked on as well as upcoming items. This includes the ability to estimate, track and project velocity. A great tool for development managers and product managers alike.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes response time is slow due. Occasionally requires a page refresh to return to responsiveness.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't try to implement current processes as they are in VersionOne. Rather, look at how the tool is designed and build your process to its strengths. Existing processes can likely be made to work, but you will be missing out on capabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
