What are the best tools for software product management besides Jira & Productboard?

On the product delivery side, Jira gets the job done but is painful to set up and very much corporate oriented. On the product discovery side, there is Productboard which is good, but I'm wondering if there are good alternatives? Are there tools which let you do both discovery and delivery in the same app?

    Enables to gather all my information within one place, and easily iterate on it. Their views feature is a killer when prioritizing!

    For smaller teams with a good balance between discovery and delivery, I love Notion, as it enables me to gather all my information within one place, and easily iterate on it. Their views feature is a killer when prioritizing! On top of that, it's a great tool for communicating with the whole team and quickly get alignment.

    Hygger

    The All-in-one Product Management Platform

    Have you tried to use Hygger.io? I'd recommend discovering its great functionality that will assist to make your products manageable. JIRA seems too complex and it's better suited for the tech teams. With Hygger, you can establish project goals and break them into an actionable plan, create roadmaps, distribute tasks on Kanban boards and prioritize them wisely using Value/Effort matrix or other technique.

    Focus on building the software, not the tool.

    Feels like a good balance between Jira and Trello!

    Recently came across this app which seems to cover both discovery and delivery in the same app. Among others, I like that they let you leverage user story mapping to break down backlog.

    Heard good things about Aha! but interface doesn't look too great and seems quite complex to set up, not sure it's an easy one to onboard the team on!

    I recently used this software powered in 2005 and acquired by Siemens in 2018. This platform allows you to create low-code web app with integrated feedback tools. The logic on the product management side is very similar to the Jira one but the big advantage is the integration with development and CI tools.
