Net Promoter Score Definition
Net Promoter Score (NPS) is an attempt to distill into a single value, what users of a company’s products think of it. Users are asked a single question along the lines of “How likely are you to recommend this product to a friend or coworker?”, which is the question used by the UserStories.com website. A product’s NPS is determined by subtracting the percentage of people unlikely to recommend the product (0-6) from those likely to do so (9-10). A more detailed description including examples is also available.

Functional product without many frills

I've used this software on and off various projects for three years. Kunagi is a functional tool that organizes your sprints, product backlog, sprint backlog, tasks, release planning etc. Kunagi provides all the required core features to completely implement and run a Scrum team's day to day tasks. All Sprint ceremonies are supported, including distributed planning poker. The Scrum board ("whiteboard") is intuitive and easy to use. I consider it fully functional and complete. This software stands out from others because it is able to be hosted locally as opposed to Software As A Service solutions. As far as I can find it's one of the most complete free self-hosted solutions (if not the most complete). I would negatively rate this software on the following items: Design - The style and design of the user interface is dated and not very pretty. It's designed to be a functional tool from the start. Usability - I would describe the user interface as clunky. You click inside fields to edit them and click outside them to save the data. There are other unintuitive conventions, for example, if you bid a story, pulled it into the sprint, then kicked it from the sprint, you have to re-confirm the estimation on that story before you are given the option to pull the story into the sprint again. There is a colored bar on each story which represents total vs. remaining hours, and it wasn't immediately clear what its purpose was until you hover over the bar. The clunkiness is less of an issue with experience. Bugs - We've run into many bugs/errors in using the software for what I would consider normal use cases. However, they are fixed reasonably quickly, and the Kunagi team is responsive if you submit issues. Stability - Kunagi tends to need a restart every so often. Disclaimer: I do not run it in a proper production environment, so stability may be negatively affected in my particular case. YMMV. Architecture/Administration - Data storage is not handled using a typical relational SQL database. Data is serialized into entity XML files and stored on the filesystem. This makes backups less trivial than slipping a new database into an already established SQL backup regimen. This product was developed in Java to run under Apache Tomcat, the administration of these types of servers is a skillset which I find to be increasingly rare. You can also run it using a simple GUI application for development applications.

Kunagi - we use it

I use kunagi from begining of 2011. At first I used it to internal projects now it is also used in our company in commercial projects with success. We have tried other products like versionOne (very heavy, not intuitive and slow interface, lots of popups) and other heavy applications - but we have found Kunagi to be most simple, fast and effective Scrum focused tool. I like it most for intuitive user interface and SCRUM support. Kunagi helps much in team member collaboration with: - comments mechanism - which is enabled for all managed elements (i.e. story, task, issue, idea, bug, sprint, release, quality etc) - live chat - forum, wiki - calendar with possibility to set events and automatic start/end of sprints - RSS notifiers for events - great dashboard with information about who is working od what, last events, next work for each SCRUM role... - great impediments mechanism - mechanism of themes (tags) for groupping purposes. Interface has some drag and drop elements (in backlogs, whiteboard) which is nice Input in most cases is autosubmit, with no popups Interface is autorefreshable - after other user changes they are immidiately visible to others without any hand work. Kunagi has support for all SCRUM development phases (planning, doing, review, retrospective) and help to have real focus on work. It has nice find text box which finds It is free and opensource - so if one wants to - can easy develop custom features (GWT). Kunagi is WEB 2 application - users can send feedback (bugs reports or features requests) immediatelly from application. Kunagi team response is fast - they manage Kunagi project with Kunagi - so they use it continuosly. Development process is very transparent. You can even generate your project site with development progress and other important information. So these were beautilfull pages of Kunagi. Now very few things that I do not like in Kunagi. It has still problems with stability - sometimes small bugs occurs (hopefully there is automatic error handler which restart session). As I know Kunagi team is working on stability and it is high priority for them. Lack of sorting and filtering (only product backlog can be filtered) Lack of real splitting stories with estimation handling. Kunagi is sometimes to much SCRUM pure and team is quite resist to add some features which do not fit their idea of Kunagi. So when your project is not developed in pure SCRUM you will lack of features which takes into consideration all project scope, i.e. product burndown/up chart, or product backlog done work (only current sprint work done is shown, and historic sprint PDF reports). Nevertheless as I said we use Kunagi with success and we really like this tool. We have used it in teams not greater than 6-7 members. I can with no doubt recommend this product.
