Needs advice

I need a tool to review. So when I searched, I saw Crucible and Fisheye. I have e few questions:

  1. Are Crucible and Fisheye start without Jira integration?
  2. Only for document review, which one should be preferred? What do you think about it?
  3. Am I doing import word document and export same word format? Well, when I upload a document to crucible, Is it possible to output in which format I enter? İs there a fixed format?

Hello All,

I have finalized two PM tools Jira and Easy Redmine. I have gone through the latest version of Easy Redmine and it has all the features. In the case of JIRA, I need to install multiple apps.

I believe both are the best PM tools available in the market. I need to make this decision as soon as possible.

Please advise which tool should I go for. Thanks

I'm starting to work on a Jira-like bug tracker web app. This is a hobby project that is mostly a way for me to learn about different technologies and development processes(CI/CD, etc..) so I could be more ready when I start applying for programming jobs.

I'm debating between MySQL, which I'm less familiar with, and MongoDB which I have used in the past.

My two points of consideration are the following:

1) Which one is more likely to be relevant for web dev jobs? While I want to learn new technologies, I prefer learning ones that will make me more hireable in the future.

2) Which one is more flexible when it comes to changing the shape of the stored data? I expect to need to make some changes as the project goes on.

Thanks, everyone!

AsanaAsanaAzure DevOpsAzure DevOps

I am managing a medium-sized team (15-20 people) who are geographically dispersed. Our team works in privacy, security, data governance, and compliance, but we DO NOT develop software. So, our choices boil down to Jira, Azure DevOps Boards, and Asana.

We are looking for a tool that:

  1. Is user-friendly for non-technicians and easy for us to self-administer.
  2. Permits us to automate common workflows.
  3. Allows us to classify work across multiple dimensions.
  4. Permits cross-functional visibility across work teams to identify potential points of collaboration and historical work projects.
  5. Enables management visibility to see where we may be overtaxed or under-resourced or whether the time is spent on the right priorities.
  6. Enables engagement/task assignments to people who are not necessarily on our team (i.e., I need someone in HR to do "X") - preferably without their needing to be fully licensed.
  7. Makes it easier for everyone to understand how their work connects to the broader team's big-picture goals.
  8. Enables easy integration with other common workplace tools.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
