Today we are proud to announce that TrustRadius has recognized Jama Software with a 2021 Tech Cares Award. This second annual award celebrates companies that have gone above and beyond to provide strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Living our mission requires dedication and commitment from our entire team,” said Jama Software CEO, Marc Osofsky. “Credit goes to all Jamanians as we do our part to make the world a better place.” 

Jama Software is focused on maximizing innovation success. Numerous firsts for humanity in fields such as fuel cells, electrification, space, autonomous vehicles, surgical robotics, and more all rely on Jama Connect® to minimize the risk of product failure, delays, cost overruns, compliance gaps, defects, and rework.  

“We’re excited to announce our second annual Tech Cares Award winners,” said TrustRadius CEO Vinay Bhagat. “The past two years have tested the tech community. We’ve been inspired by watching leaders in the B2B technology industry pursue meaningful progress in social, environmental, and cultural spaces. Not only do we feel that these companies are deserving of recognition—we also consider them a great example as we build a stronger future together.” 

To be accepted for the Tech Cares Award, each nominated organization had to be a B2B technology company that demonstrated strong CSR in 2020 and 2021. Everyone was welcome to nominate an organization for this award, including those who work for or with the company. All nominations were thoroughly vetted by the TrustRadius research team.

We are so happy to share that Jama Software has been recognized as a leader among application lifecycle management (ALM) tools for the second year in a row. “We are honored to have received this recognition by TrustRadius. We have the largest team of developers focused on requirements management for safety-critical products,” said Jama Software CEO, Marc Osofsky. “And we’re honored that the most innovative companies in industries such as medical device, automotive, semiconductor, aerospace and defense have chosen to work with us so that together we can shape the future.”

Customer-centric Criteria

One of the things we’re most proud of is that our customers selected us—with their excellent satisfaction ratings—as a top-rated ALM tool. This rating was based purely on TrustRadius’ verified customer reviews; there is no paid placement, and analyst opinions do not influence the rankings. To qualify, a product must have 10 or more recent reviews and a trScore of 7.5 or higher, indicating above-average satisfaction for business technology. Read more about the Top Rated criteria.

“Jama Software is one of those rare SaaS companies that has a passionate following among our users,” said Jama Software CEO, Marc Osofsky. “When our users change companies, they bring us with them. Trust Radius focuses on user satisfaction and reflects our pride in the passion of Jama Nation.”

What Our Customers are Saying

Here are just a few quotes from TrustRadius verified users on how they’re using Jama Connect:

“JAMA Connect is used by our Medicaid Pharmacy Solutions Business Analysis Team for managing requirements for our clients. JAMA Connect provides the solution for housing our requirements in a repository to meet the needs of our customers. The review center is great to review requirements electronically instead of sitting in a meeting to review them. Version control creates a great audit trail.“
-Analyst in Information Technology, Hospital & Healthcare


“Jama Connect is the source of truth for requirements. We have used it internally…to communicate between Engineering, Operations, and Scientists, but also to do requirement reviews with external consortia, to get their input. We are also using it for requirement flow-down and traceability and using several report tools. …having an agile way of dealing with requirements helps us.”
-Engineer, Research Company


“We use Jama Connect for requirements management. It’s used across several business units within R&D to manage requirements from initial creation all the way to generating final design traceability matrices. It has been particularly helpful with managing systems with several subsystems that each have sets of requirements. Rather than waste a significant amount of engineering time, Jama allows us to generate requirement documentation (MRS, PRS, SRS, HRS, V&V Plans, and DTMs) with very little effort.”
-Engineer in Research and Development for Medical Device Company


Our Customers’ Success is Our Success

Helping enable our customers’ success is at the core of everything we do. While we take pride in winning this award, our greatest success is watching how our customers use Jama to not only achieve but exceed their business objectives. “Our customer bonds are deeply rooted and personal. We celebrate the product and career successes we help enable and engage deeply on product direction,” said Osofsky.

We continue to innovate, make improvements to our platform, add new features, expand our integrations, and strive to enhance and broaden our service offerings. Our goal is to continue to provide best-in-class requirements, risk, and test management products and outstanding customer service to our customers now and into the future.

At Jama, we’re proud to create products that inspire such gracious feedback in our user community. Thank you for supporting our work, and for sharing your feedback on TrustRadius.

Each month, over half a million B2B technology buyers use over 222,000 verified reviews and ratings on TrustRadius.com to make informed purchasing decisions.

We are pleased to announce that Jama Connect™ was selected as a Top-Rated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Tool for 2019 by TrustRadius.

The annual Top-Rated ALM Tool award showcases today’s top-of-the-line products in ALM based solely on user feedback and satisfaction scores. These awards make the voice of the market the primary decider into the industry’s best ALM software.

According to TrustRadius, the Top-Rated awards are the most trusted in the industry because they are never influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer.

“We are proud to be recognized as a top ALM tool by TrustRadius alongside Jira Software from Atlassian,” said Jama Software CEO Scott Roth. “We’ve worked hard to deliver the best requirements, risk, and test management platform available on the market, and are honored to receive this recognition from such a highly regarded source.”

Enterprise Product Development Requires Modern ALM Tools

Though customers noted a variety of features and capabilities as the reason they rated Jama Connect so favorably in the ALM software category — end-to-end traceability, Review Center, and ease of use among the most commonly mentioned — it all came down to the superiority of the product.

“Jama Connect has won a Top-Rated award for application lifecycle management software based directly on feedback from their customers,” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius. “Reviewers praise the product’s core traceability and defect logging capabilities, and its overall superiority for requirements management and QA across development stages.”

And while TrustRadius boasts dozens of verified reviews from happy Jama Software customers — over 70% coming from large enterprises — one was highlighted in the ALM award announcement.

“Through Jama, we have been able to fully document our functional and technical requirements for multiple products/projects. Jama allows us to go through change cycle reviews with our client to show them the changes we have made during a cycle for their approval or clarification,” said Thai Trinh, Senior Business Analyst for an IT and services company. “This gives us accountability and traceability that could not be achieved in other more manual requirement gathering methods… For any project in which you need to document detailed requirements, especially software development, Jama would be well suited for use.”

Jama Connect Shares the Award with Jira Software

With both platforms earning an average of over 8/10 stars, TrustRadius actually named two award winners in the ALM tool category: Jama Connect and Jira Software.

Jira Software, the leading project management software, was rightly recognized for its unique organizational schema such as stories and epics, and overall flexible workflow, making it an ideal ALM tool for managing the work of developers and fostering collaboration among teams. Many organizations accelerate product development by connecting Jama Software and Jira Software for a bi-directional information flow of requirements and tasks.

The Future is Bright for Our Customers

All of us at Jama Software take pride in winning this award, but it wouldn’t be possible without our customers.

Over the coming months and years, we will be deeply focused on making improvements across our product line, adding new features, expanding our integration partners, and broadening our services offerings. These steps will ensure our customers have the most effective platform for requirements, risk, and test management available.

“Our customers are at the forefront of every decision we make, and we’re dedicated to providing them with a premier platform, outstanding customer service, and seamless integrations with other best-of-breed tools,” said Roth.
