SpiraPlan Overview

What is SpiraPlan?

Tired of Separate Project Planning and Issue-Tracking Tools?

SpiraPlan is a complete Project Management System in one package, that manages your project's requirements, releases, iterations, tasks and bugs/issues in one place. Fully web-based and enterprise ready.

SpiraPlan is an open platform that can connect to your existing source code repositories and integate with the tools already used by your developers.

Get Information Right at Your Fingertips!

SpiraPlan® provides integrated dashboards of key project health and status information.

SpiraPlan® provides reporting dashboards of key project progress and risk indicators - task progress, effort slippage, project velocity, task burndown/burnup, top risk and issues – in one consolidated view that is tailor-made for agile methodologies as well as supporting your legacy/hybrid waterfall projects.

Throw off the Shackles of Outdated Methodologies

As described in the Agile Manifesto, traditional waterfall software methodologies have failed to delivery projects on-time and on-budget. In addition, many systems built this way will fail to provide the expected business value as there is no ability to refine the requirements as the project progresses.

SpiraPlan is a complete agile management system that synchronizes your project's requirements, iterations, tasks, risks, and issues in one place.

Software development has been transformed by the new Agile methodologies such as Scrum, XP, DSDM and AUP. However the traditional tools of project management are too cumbersome and not well suited. SpiraTeam's Agile Planning Board is perfect for team meetings with color-coding and simpledrag-and-drop editing.

SpiraPlan has been designed specifically to support agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, XP, Scrum, DSDM and AUP, allowing teams to manage all their information in one environment.

When better software planning and project delivery is required, Inflectra provides the solution. SpiraPlan offers the features you need to streamline your project management methodology and attain the level of productivity and on-time, on-budget you need in today's competitive marketplace.

Very satisfied with SpiraTeam's requirements management features and functions.

I can easily manage software requirements for any size software development project.

I´m tracking our development processes for a waterfall/V-Modell process


Bernardo B.

We've used SpiraTeam in my company for over 5 years and it is great tool for Test Management.


Peter B.

So Easy to Implement

Excellent! I've used other ALMs in the past and this is, by far, the easiest and most flexible of them. It just makes sense!


Dennis L.

Our R&D - managed, at last!

We used a maintenance release for one of our medical devices as a trial. Spira allowed very easy control of Requirements and Test artifacts and especially traceability and traceability reporting, which is vital for e.g. the FDA submissions.

I can easily manage software requirements for any size software development project.

Pros

The value for the money. I primarily use SpiraTeam for requirements management. From that perspective alone, SpiraTeam's functionality is as good or better than IBM/Rational, HP, or ReqTool. To have all the other functionality (test management, task management, Kanban, reporting, etc.) include in the package is a true value-add.

Cons

It's a minor inconvenience: response time when first logging-in to the system is somewhat slow. But once the system responds to my login attempt, response time is acceptable - at least as good as other cloud-based systems I use.

Excellent! I've used other ALMs in the past and this is, by far, the easiest and most flexible of them. It just makes sense!

Pros

The software is highly intuitive and incredibly easy to implement within either a new or structured environment. Set-up and configuration to meet my business needs was simple and the online manuals and YouTube guides were a real asset. The product is easy to customise and use and you can have a relatively non-technical team using it in no time, even business people!

Cons

The Reporting suite could be better. It's a little clunky to customise but the out-of-the-box reports are more than adequate to get started and will, in most instances, meet all of a Project's needs.

Pros

* Easy to set up (meaning the project templates, users, customizable fields, etc.)
* Very good integration possibilities with other tools
* Attractive GUI
* Great customization possibilities for reports
* REST API available and well documented

Cons

* Support for reviews is a bit rudimentary - this is, IMO, the weakest part of the tool. We'd prefer to have the possibility to submit sets of artifacts for review, defined review groups, and allow adding Approvals and Discussion threads (similar to e.g. Gitlab)
