Nothing should hold you back. Not even Jira.
Did you end up tying your coffee breaks to reloading or starting up JIRA because it just takes so long? While the coffee is nice, the frustration is not – especially when you are under time pressure and you need to deliver.
For as long as Jira has been around, there has been one particular complaint from Jira users reappearing year after year – its performance is very slow. And on top of it, it isn’t easy to determine the exact cause. Even if you ignore the configuration and focus on the system itself, there are still many places to check to know what is causing Jira to perform slowly.
Does the problem connect to Heap Memory, the File system, or is it an overloaded CPU? Or does it come from outdated hardware and software, a lack of resources, or a large number of users accessing the system simultaneously? To solve these performance issues you need to be quite an expert and still, it leads to great time loss. Whatever the cause, slow software is a big issue that leads to no good.
Decrease in productivity and missed deadlines
Delayed response time means it takes longer for users to access the information they need, update tasks, or create new ones. This can lead to delays in completing projects and meeting deadlines. As slow performance is usually a recurrent issue, team members also spend a significant amount of time trying to troubleshoot and fix the problem, which ultimately leads to a loss of productivity.
Frustration and loss of focus
Slow performance and difficulty to keep up with changes can easily disrupt the workflow of users, causing them to lose focus and become less productive. The more it requires the more users become frustrated and less motivated to work and use the tool. This affects engagement, decreases productivity, and can bring feelings of demotivation.
Problems with communication and coordination
Users rely on their software to quickly view and update the status of tasks, assign tasks to team members, and leave comments for other team members – therefore it is crucial that the tool is fast and reliable. When team members have to wait for it to load before they can view or update tasks, it doesn't “just” slow down the pace of the team's work. Additionally, if comments or other updates are not loaded quickly, team members aren't aware of important information or decisions that were made, leading to confusion and miscommunication.
