Business Tools / Collaboration / Issue Tracking
Product Manager at StackShare·

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.

MongoDBMongoDB

MySQLMySQL

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!

MySQL

MySQL is still more popular than MongoDB if you look at Google Trends. I've also added MariaDB, which is pretty much a copy from MySQL and its features, and PostgreSQL, which is also a popular relational database.

This is a very good article for comparing MySQL to MongoDB and which one you should use: MongoDB vs MySQL: A Comparative Study on Databases.

If you just want to learn and you have the time, I would opt for using both MySQL and MongoDB. For example using MySQL for most of the site content and MongoDB for saving log messages. As you get more and more logs you start to see the benefits from MongoDB's faster document fetching.

Hi! Thanks for the answer.

I really like the idea of opting to use both for different scenarios, and I think that this is the one I will go for.

Thanks again :)

There's really not an awful lot of difference between the two, they have wildly different storage mechanisms but they each have their fairly similar benefits. If you want to learn something that might be a requisite skill for a job, I would also look at alternatives such as time based and column based systems like InfluxDB and the unbelievably fast and flexible ClickHouse. While they may seem like an unlikely fit for a personal bug tracker app, there's no reason not to use them. Since I got into InfluxDB people have been requesting it a lot and I'll be using ClickHouse for all large databases, probably forever. Expand your horizons beyond your competition's.

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.

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

I'm looking for a tool or set of tools to enable searching across all of our platforms including Confluence and Jira, Zoho CRM, Gmail, Gdrive for business, Dropbox and iCloud.

Any ideas. Something like X1? IBM Watson Discovery?

(And local Disk of course)

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.

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.

ProductboardProductboard

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!

Can you share the comparison between eSign for Confluence (Digital Rose) vs Contract Signature ? Thank you

Hi Nana,

The names of apps sound similar, but are very different;

eSign for Confluence is more like an approval path (or the App, Aproval Path for Jira)

You define the (approvers) - and they sign to approve the transition.

The page becomes verified. Admins can manually remove 'verified' status and request another round of signatures in case a page content has changed.

You can not create a contract out of a Confluence page;

There is no pdf with the signatures, there is no pdf with a certificate;

and Only Confluence users can sign/approve;

Unlike Contract signatures that allows internal and external users to sign a contract inside Confluence.

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.
