What's your favorite Point A Tool?

John Funk Community Leader Apr 29, 2021

I have to admit that I am little partial to the tools being rolled out under the Point A initiative. I am curious as to your favorite. Mine is definite Jira Work Management. 

Let me know yours!



Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Apr 29, 2021

Ooh, excellent question!

I think I'm torn between Jira Work Management and Jira Product Discovery.

At this moment I think JWM has the most potential for myself to be used/implemented but I don't know enough about JPD (I'm going to coin that term) yet. The idea however appeals to me greatly.

So I'm gonna have to have a draw between JWM and JPD

John Funk Community Leader Apr 29, 2021

Actually same here as it relates to our organization as a whole. We are in the Alpha with JPD and one of my Product Managers is already drooling over it haha. He will be the point for us and it will be a tremendous help for our PMs. 

Personally, I will use JWM more.

I am so excited for Team Central. We have hacked so many different ways to give high level updates to our executives (dedicated projects with custom issue types and fields which are then exported to excel and nothing ever stays in sync or up to date so you have to update in both places..... ugh!).  We are still on Data Center so unfortunately it will still be a year or more till I can take advantage.

Definitely some nice potential there! We were a part of the Alpha and the product has progressed very nicely. 

Very difficult to determine a favorite without more details on the products themselves. The keynotes yesterday were great ticklers. From that, I plan to look more into Team Central and Jira Work Management.

Definitely the Team Central... I always loved smart and sophisticated solutions but when I'm older I think that for simple use cases, the simple solutions are better.

We just learned about Team Central, so we're trying that out. We'll see if the team likes it, but it really does address a dual need of:

1. Getting status updates from across the team since we're not in a rhythm of doing regular meetings for it

2. Sharing updates with the rest of the team about where projects are

I sense a bit of favoritism there @John Funk.  It's okay, JWM is my favorite too.

I was given a sneak peek at Discovery as part of my media walkthrough of JWM prior to launch, and I'm digging what I saw.  It's billed as a Jira for PM's, but I can see a possible niche there as a "Jira for creatives."

Also, now that I type it out, when did I become media? Does this mean I'll have to get a press badge for next year's Team!?

WOW, I know a media celeb! You got a shout out in the JWM demo/talk by Chase if you haven't seen that yet. He just used your code name though.  haha

One of the reasons I am partial to JWM is that I actually see ways I can replace some of my JSM projects and save Agent licenses!

Remember, outside the Atlassian ecosystem, I'm just "the guy."  But I saw his shout-out - it made me laugh. Too bad he couldn't include the accompanying graphic:

I am looking forward to Jira Work Management, as Jira Core really needed a boost up to be more useful for Business teams.

While I probably won't use it myself I'm intrigued by Compass.. 

As an IT person, I like the inter connectivity and the "one source" idea.

Same here, I can see a lot of potential for this tool.

Jira Work Management is great! Lots of fabulous options.

Great discussion topic @John Funk!

I'm still on the doorstep to start familiarising myself with all these new things. I'm sure that picking a favourite is strongly related to one's role.

I am really happy to see that Atlassian finally found a way to uplift Jira Core to something that has actually real value for business teams. JSW absolutely has a lot of things that actually fit with the way those teams work. So it definitely strengthens the narrative around Jira as a tool to support organisation wide collaboration.

As the shift from running projects to building products continues, I am also full of expectation about Product Discovery. It's a bit early for bold statements in my opinion, but really curious about that one.

I'm just now getting introduced to these and trying them out. I don't have a clear favorite yet, but I love the opportunity to participate in innovation.

I definitely want to give Team Central and Jira Work Management a test drive :)
Hard to choose between them two while haven't spent some time with them - anyway, what was teasered during Team 21 looked very promising!
