        We use Nextcloud for company-file-management, personal work-documents and for collaborative work (through collabora), organize our #TODOs, that are not covered by the Bugtracker. Existing solutions either were very expensive ( Google Drive ), missed a lot of features ( Trello ) or were pretty much overloaded with features ( Wekan within Sandstorm ).

        That made Nextcloud ud our natural fit for our company management and we're convinced of its integrations and flexibility.

        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!

        Review ofRedmineRedmine

        Our team has been using Redmine as our project management tools as well as bug tracking system at the very beginning. It's very easy to use although it is a little complex for new guys to set it up. Best of all, it's free and you can host it on your own server.
