Jama Connect

Product requirements & application lifecycle management tool

About Jama Connect

Jama Connect is an on-premise and cloud-based product requirements & application lifecycle management (ALM) solution that lets businesses streamline the entire lifecycle of application development, from collaboration between team members to tracking activities across test cases. The platform enables users to review the impact of changes before implementation, and automatically highlights impacted people or items when changes occur.

Features of Jama Connect include impact analysis, test management, live traceability, compliance reporting, feedback, real-time collaboration, version comparison, and more. The solution allows users to store multiple projects in a centralized database, create requirement catalogs to reuse in upcoming products, capture current state/subset of projects as baselines, and compare two versions of a requirement to identify changes. Plus, managers can stream discussions to include new users or stakeholders in ongoing conversations and view all collaborators of an item on a unified platform.

Jama Connect comes with a review center, which enables businesses to share product requirements across multiple teams for review, capture feedback, add electronic signatures in reviews, negotiate on engineering responses, and more. It facilitates integration with several third-party task management, quality testing, and DevOps applications such as Jira, Bugzilla, Tricentis, Ansys, LDRA, Vector Software, and Jenkins, among others.

Overall experience using Jama Connect has been really good. I would definitely recommend it to my colleagues.

Pros

Jama provides a very user-friendly interface with a lot of intuitive functionality.
Provides requirement traceability and also versioning.
The functionality to apply filters has been implemented better than most of its competitors in the market.

Cons

The text editor can be a little difficult for a first time user and can be made more intuitive.
Filtering can be made more convenient to use.

Good choice for requirement management

Reviewed on 12/10/2017

Good product but loading and navigation issues

Good product but loading and navigation issues

Pros

1. I have been using Jama for over one and half years. The good thing about JAMA is all the requirements are systematically placed in JAMA. Its search option is good. By typing any keyword, all the related requirements get listed below.

2. I liked the requirement review facility in Jama. All the comments are well preserved. By going through them, I can ensure whether any comments are still open. It helps in tracking the closure of all questions/comments raised during requirement review.

3. Notification service of JAMA is quite good

Cons

1. I felt that loading and navigation of Jama needs to be improved. Sometimes the delay is quite noticeable.

2. Though the homepage contains all important information, little improvement in look and feel of GUI can make it more attractive.

3. There should be auto login in Jama using windows login password like other software I use. Every time I have to manually give windows login/password to enter Jama

Jama Review from a True User

Reviewed on 30/11/2018

Pros

Web-based and much cheaper option than DOORS.
Learning curve is really flat.
No need for professional IT engineers to maintain the system

Cons

Data export an import extremely not convenient. Now only support export to excel. After excel export, the sheet is not the same format as seen in Jama and it takes me long time to reformat the sheet in excel.

3rd party tools integration is not ideal, like the support to EA, Github,...

I am an admin and active user and I love this product! I cant do my job without it!

Pros

Tracks my requirements, helps collaborate with other engineers on requirements, the Jama Reviews and change process is easy to implement and use. They also added e-signatures for approvers which has been key in baselining requirements.

Cons

Its hard to separate admin access from create access, though recently Jama implemented changes to admin usage and its helped. The baselining feature is not strong either, rather, items are baselined per review regardless of approvals and rejections.
