BigPicture vs Advanced Roadmap

Hai Ha August 29, 2023

I am getting myself famirialized with BigPicture and to be honest dont see much benefits, added values compared to Advanced roadmap. 

For what kind of projects I should use BigPicture and for what purpose please?

Much appreciate if you could share infos on some training sites (not their boring documentations please, already went though them), best practices, recommendations, etc...

Thanks so much in advance.

Somewhat related is I've heard concerns of Roadmaps when you get over 6 to 10 projects and a large number of issues; hence at scale Atlassian recommends Align as a PPM solution.

Any corresponding concerns with Big Picture at scale?

Hi @Hai Ha 

It really depends on what you are trying to achieve.

Advanced Roadmaps is good to plan across different levels, scheduling across multiple projects and track the overall progress in your plan in one live view. You also have scenarios to play with the plan. If your projects are already using SCRUM then Advanced Roadmaps will work really well.

BigPicture can do lot of it and much more but before making any recommendations I would like to know what problem you are trying to solve?

not any problem in particular just trying to find a better way to visualize our roadmap in which I think advanced roadmap has pretty much all the functions that we need. 

Off topic was wondering if you know any best practices on issue hierarchy pls? knowing epics -> stories -> sub-tasks, however if we want to have higher level than epics for examples? Much appreciate any thoughts. Thanks so much!!
