The work items option is incredibly flexible.
You can have test cases in DevOps but not in JIRA. And, DevOps has advantages in terms of executing those test cases.
We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions.
GitLab is very useful for pipelines, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. It is also stable.
The key feature is the usability. It is fast to learn and easy to use. It's very intuitive to work with. Most of the important functions are available via a few clicks, compared to other tools where I have to open a sub-menu and then a sub-menu and another sub-menu, and then press a button.
Every feature is valuable. LeanKit is a Kanban-based tool where you have a visual interface that you can use to create various cards and to create boards to house those cards. You can create a board for managing project work. You can create a board to do PI planning. It is pretty close to the agile way of doing business.
ServiceNow brings to the market different layers with different pricing, so you can customize. And all the layers are really enterprise-ready.
The interface is extremely user-friendly.
The feature that we like the most is that JIRA enables modules. Atlassian provides a lot of products around JIRA, such as compliance for the documentation, BitBucket for the Git version. We are new to these products developed by Atlassian, but they can integrate very easily. Generally, when an editor is developing a solution, they think about integrating with JIRA. When we are looking for any other solution, they plan to easily integrate with JIRA.
It can generate reports showing a burndown chart, burnup chart, and the planned vs actual velocity.
It allows my clients to have one central tool to manage their agile projects.
We use the roadmap features, and we're getting better at using dates to use the roadmap so that we can see if we're on target for work.
The product has excellent customizable reports.
