Ease of use to manage Agile development process. Easily Manage User Stories, track task progress

Likes Least

Currently we manage bugs/issues in a separate software tool. We tried managing bugs through this software, din't like how bugs were converted to a User Story, rather than a task under a Story

Recommendations

This is a must have tool if you are managing a Agile Project

It is intuitive to create stories, break down to tasks and assign them to the team. The reporting features are very useful for executive summary in my monthly report. Easy to track the progress. It truly has the agile aspects build in for software development environment. The customizable dashboard allows you to track multiple projects and display the most important graphics on one screen.

Likes Least

The QA process is a little bit difficult to use. Since we are using a separate bug reporting system, it doesn't really integrate with it. The process of creating test cases and report defects are way too complicated for our environment. Overall, I don't have too much complaints against Rally.

Recommendations

Start with only the planning, execution and monitoring functions. Add QA process in later once you are comfortable with it, that can get really complicated depends on the scale of you project.
