TrustRadius Names Jama Connect™ 2019 Top-Rated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Tool

August 20, 2019 McKenzie Jonsson

We are pleased to announce that Jama Connect™ was selected as a Top-Rated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Tool for 2019 by TrustRadius.

The annual Top-Rated ALM Tool award showcases today’s top-of-the-line products in ALM based solely on user feedback and satisfaction scores. These awards make the voice of the market the primary decider into the industry’s best ALM software.

According to TrustRadius, the Top-Rated awards are the most trusted in the industry because they are never influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer.

“We are proud to be recognized as a top ALM tool by TrustRadius alongside Jira Software from Atlassian,” said Jama Software CEO Scott Roth. “We’ve worked hard to deliver the best requirements, risk, and test management platform available on the market, and are honored to receive this recognition from such a highly regarded source.”

Enterprise Product Development Requires Modern ALM Tools

Though customers noted a variety of features and capabilities as the reason they rated Jama Connect so favorably in the ALM software category — end-to-end traceability, Review Center, and ease of use among the most commonly mentioned — it all came down to the superiority of the product.

“Jama Connect has won a Top-Rated award for application lifecycle management software based directly on feedback from their customers,” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius. “Reviewers praise the product’s core traceability and defect logging capabilities, and its overall superiority for requirements management and QA across development stages.”

And while TrustRadius boasts dozens of verified reviews from happy Jama Software customers — over 70% coming from large enterprises — one was highlighted in the ALM award announcement.

“Through Jama, we have been able to fully document our functional and technical requirements for multiple products/projects. Jama allows us to go through change cycle reviews with our client to show them the changes we have made during a cycle for their approval or clarification,” said Thai Trinh, Senior Business Analyst for an IT and services company. “This gives us accountability and traceability that could not be achieved in other more manual requirement gathering methods… For any project in which you need to document detailed requirements, especially software development, Jama would be well suited for use.”

Jama Connect Shares the Award with Jira Software

With both platforms earning an average of over 8/10 stars, TrustRadius actually named two award winners in the ALM tool category: Jama Connect and Jira Software.

Jira Software, the leading project management software, was rightly recognized for its unique organizational schema such as stories and epics, and overall flexible workflow, making it an ideal ALM tool for managing the work of developers and fostering collaboration among teams. Many organizations accelerate product development by connecting Jama Software and Jira Software for a bi-directional information flow of requirements and tasks.

The Future is Bright for Our Customers

All of us at Jama Software take pride in winning this award, but it wouldn’t be possible without our customers.

Over the coming months and years, we will be deeply focused on making improvements across our product line, adding new features, expanding our integration partners, and broadening our services offerings. These steps will ensure our customers have the most effective platform for requirements, risk, and test management available.

“Our customers are at the forefront of every decision we make, and we’re dedicated to providing them with a premier platform, outstanding customer service, and seamless integrations with other best-of-breed tools,” said Roth.
