What is Bugzilla?

Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System". Defect Tracking Systems allow individual or groups of developers to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features its expensive counterparts lack.

What is FogBugz?

What is Jira?

Jira's secret sauce is the way it simplifies the complexities of software development into manageable units of work. Jira comes out-of-the-box with everything agile teams need to ship value to customers faster.

        Review ofJiraJira

        Most of my time in JIRA is spent

        • Waiting for pages to load
        • Clicking on links, because the information that I need is not available on the first pages I reach
        • Looking for the next link to click, because each page has a different layout and the bug title or the latest comment might be placed anywhere on the page

        Additionally, any time I search the documentation I get bug reports from years ago that appear unresolved or instructions for modifying the on-premesis installation (we have their cloud service).

        Compared to Bugzilla and Redmine, Jira requires a lot of manual configuration which can make project issues not compatible status-wise.

        So much relief as you can track each and every issues, bugs, dev project and maintenance and a time machine when it comes to do that less interesting timesheet or daily status. Its a rescuer.

        We use a combination of Scrum and Kanban for our tasks. We focus more on the integration with Bitbucket to keep track of tasks and have bi-directional accountability.

        We use JIRA because it's a single tool that can be customized to each of our business processes: product development, customer on-boarding, and internal operations
