"When we set out to look for a PPM tool, the key problem we were aiming to solve was finding a way to connect the dots between our tactical execution management solutions and our company level goals to resource/time investments, that would provide data and insights for driving smarter decisions and ultimately lead to better ROI. After spending months looking into potential vendors I came across an article titled “How to Choose Between a Roadmap vs. Product Portfolio (PPM) Tool”
. As I read, it was as if all the problems that I was tasked to solve for were being articulated perfectly with the proposed solution being this tool, Dragonboat.
After evaluating one other tool, typically referred to as the “gold standard” Product tool, there was no doubt in my mind that Dragonboat was the way to go for us. While other solutions focus just on the idea intake side, Dragonboat provides outcome based, multifaceted organization combined with the most robust, 2 way Jira Integration I’ve ever seen providing us full autonomy without needing to ask our engineering partners to change a single thing about how they work. Our Product Team can not only plan, evaluate and sequence work, but they are able to tie all their ideas directly to the target Company and Product Objectives, connect them to Jira, and get seamless and dynamic health and predicted end dates, all in one place. They can also easily manage up using the dashboard and allocation reporting features. In the end, I chose Dragonboat because they are the only vendor out there who really understood my problems as a Product Operations leader and spent the time building what almost feels like a custom solution just for me."
