Over time, as our teams became bigger and projects became more complex, we started to take agile processes more seriously and wanted more advanced (by our standards) project management abilities, like burndown charts, velocity tracking, etc. We also wanted to handle a lot of content management tasks that were primarily done by non-technical teams but often touched engineering.

After using Pivotal Tracker and Wrike, JIRA ended up being the right choice for us. Its design was flexible enough to do engineering project management, content management and other tasks like product roadmapping effectively. It had all the bells and whistles we wanted (plus many more we never got around to using). Given that it is a flexible service that tries to do everything, it is ideal for a team that can 1) dedicate significant bandwidth to upfront setup and organization and 2) empower admins to establish and enforce best practices among team members.

I am looking for the best tool to orchestrate #ETL workflows in non-Hadoop environments, mainly for regression testing use cases. Would Airflow or Apache NiFi be a good fit for this purpose?

For example, I want to run an Informatica ETL job and then run an SQL task as a dependency, followed by another task from Jira. What tool is best suited to set up such a pipeline?

Airflow

I have been using Airflow for more than 2 years now and haven't thought about moving to any other platform. Coming back to your requirements, Airflow fits pretty well. 1. It has an excellent way to manage dependent tasks using DAG (Direct Acyclic Graph), You can create a DAG with tasks and manage which task is dependent on which and Airflow takes care of running it or not running a task in case the parent task fails. 2. Integrations - The airflow community has implemented various integration to different cloud services, to Hadoop, spark a and as well as Jira. Though it doesn't have in-built integration for Informatica you can also run your own service in Airflow as a task (which can handle all Informatica related operations).

  1. It's very easy to find/monitor and manage Jobs/Pipelines as Airflow provides a great consolidated UI.

Airflow

Hey Sathya! With Airflow, you are able to create custom hooks and operators to trigger various types of jobs. There may be ones that exist already for informatica, but I am unsure. Would be happy to connect to discuss further if you are interested. josh@astronomer.io

YouTrack feels much more lightweight than Jira and additionally have all of features that Jira have, of course lacks at some analytics features, but it's more powerful at permission management and agile workflow. Additionally YouTrack have awesome integration with other JetBrains products such as incoming JetBrains Space and all other IDEs such as GoLand.

Aha!Aha!

I'm comparing Aha!, Trello and Asana. We are looking for it as a Product Management Team. Jira handles all our development and storyboard etc. This is for Product Management for Roadmaps, Backlogs, future stories, etc. Cost is a factor, as well. Does anyone have a comparison chart of Pros and Cons? Thank you.

ClickUp

I just switched to ClickUp for my development agency - I am the product team, and I relay everything there betwixt designers, devs, and clients.

Clickup = Jira + Confluence but better - more ways to slice and dice your data & documents, make custom views, mind map relationships, and track people's work, plan goals... I even use it to manage project finances and household to-dos.

They have a very comprehensive free tier that never expires, and on top of that they're extremely generous with trials of their paid features, have more-than-fair pricing, and top-notch customer support.

Aha!Aha!

I am looking for advice on Aha! vs ProductBoard for new product development. I am working on product ideation for an entirely new healthcare tech product line (B2B Saas product AI solutions focused on Payers/Providers) AT present relying on interviews and conversations to drive in data on pain points. But hope to leverage Aha for running surveys, and drive in extensive feedback from business users, develop MVP and integrate with Jira for downstream technical product management.

We are a lean team. At present, it's just myself working on strategy and ideation. I am posting this question because I have heard mixed reviews about Aha (example: is it not Saas enabled?) Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks for any tips

Last time we shared there information about our decision about using YouTrack over Jira actually we found much better solution that our team have loved. Linear is a minimalistic issue tracker that integrates well with Sentry, GitHub, Slack and Figma which are our basic tools. I would like to recommend checking out Linear as a potential alternative to "heavy" issue trackers, maybe at enterprises that may not work but when we're a startup that works awesome!

Jira 's dashboards are great, but for wider collaboration, reporting to management, and to avoid informational siloes, Confluence is a wonderful place to share Jira Dashboards.

AWS Config seems quite enough to make us compliant and secure. Why should I consider other external products? I try to achieve - Get notified on Jira Management Desk when an configuration alarm is generated. - Customize infra alarms - Get compliant for SOC2 Type 2.

Hi, I need advice. In my project, we are using Bitbucket hosted on-prem, Jenkins, and Jira. Also, we have restrictions not to use any plugins for code review, code quality, code security, etc., with bitbucket. Now we want to migrate to AWS CodeCommit, which would mean that we can use, let's say, Amazon CodeGuru for code reviews and move to AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline for build automation in the future rather than using Jenkins.

Now I want advice on below.

  1. Is it a good idea to migrate from Bitbucket to AWS Codecommit?
  2. If we want to integrate Jira with AWS Codecommit, then how can we do this? If a developer makes any changes in Jira, then a build should be triggered automatically in AWS and create a Jira ticket if the build fails. So, how can we achieve this?

Hi Kavita. It would be useful to explain in a bit more detail the integration to Jira you would like to achieve. Some of the Jira plugins will work with any git repository, regardless if its github/bitbucket/gitlab.
