        Redmine

        We were using a hosted version of Redmine to track defects and user stories originally. We migrated to Jira.

        Jira was an easy decision for a number of reasons:

        • It's much more "Scrum ready" straight out of the box
        • It's so much easier to keep a track of progress (I love the reporting)
        • It natively encourages you to adhere to Scrum/Agile/Kanban practices
        • Atlassian has a fantastic DevOps ecosystem when considering the likes of Confluence and Bamboo etc
        • So many integrations!
        • Its UI is so intuitive which makes it an absolute pleasure to use!

        I know there are alot of other tools in this space but not even considering anything else at the moment. Love Jira!

        We use Hackpad as a wiki to store all our internal documentation and the best thing about it is that it's so easy to make changes that anyone is responsible for making sure it's always up-to-date. You can basically edit as you read.

        All ideas and knowledge that needs to be elaborated or shared is done in this wiki. With plugins for create embedded prototypes.

        Also is part of the development processes to create requisites and other artefacts.

        It's main use is in the development processes, it could be used to create manuals and software documentation as well, but is used more as a collaboration enterprise tool.

        All of our (Engineering) knowledge is in Confluence. We document our thinking, our architecture, support recipes, trip notes, anything and everything. It's very important in a remote setting, to be have this type of knowledge store.

        We use Confluence for specifications and knowledge sharing. We chose Confluence over other wikis primarily because of its integration with JIRA
