What is Asana?
Asana is a well regarded name in project management software. The company is entering its second decade, having been founded in 2008 by Dustin Moskovitz (of Facebook fame) and Justin Rosenstein.
To differentiate itself from competitors like Jira, Asana calls itself a “work management” platform. Asana is very functional with its web app for desktop, and mobile apps for tablets and phones. It also has a large number of integrations with third-party services, including Slack, Office 365, and Google Calendar. On top of that, Asana offers an attractive and functional interface, as well as helpful timeline views for tasks that allow users to see the current state of the project at a glance.
