    It is easy to maintain and easy to automate. No coding skills are required to automate. It is also easy in terms of transferring knowledge and skills. Many of my team members shifted over the past one and a half years, and there was no big issue with respect to knowledge sharing. It is a good tool that enables me to re-automate my scripts and update my scripts as quickly as possible. Looking at the amount of rework and maintenance activity that we had done for our scripts, it might have been a nightmare with some other scripting tool.

    Micro Focus UFT One gives us integration capabilities with both API and GUI components. I like the user interface. It doesn't require that much skill to use and has automatic settings, which is useful for users who don't know what to select. It also has dark and light themes.

    In TestComplete, I saw a conformed package of a tool that kept everybody in consistency. The team was able to regenerate further tests without having to manipulate more code because the record feature is great.
  5. leader badge
    The solution is free to use.In general, I would say that the API set is the most valuable feature.
  6. The slow nature of a cloud platform was compensated with parallel testing, and now we are able to finish our testing job faster than it was before COVID.
  7. The most valuable feature is the ability to automate quickly and to maintain and update scripts.Certify's web UI testing abilities for testing of modern applications like SAP Fiori was good when we started and they developed it to be even better. We all know that web applications can change objects in DOM quite fast and it breaks tests. To counter it Certify has made object recognition more flexible and generic, so we don't have any troubles.

  9. The solution is very scalable.This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us.
  10. The stability has always been very good.The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable.

Micro Focus has tools for support all end to end testing process, so in this case is one of the best tools for testing SAP or other environments non SAP, we know that market exist a many variety with a good tools, but is important understand customer with their needs and know their environments to recomend the best choice. Other tool for automation that I can recomend is Katalon, for performance testing Neotys NeoLoad, for security testing the Inmuniweb plataform, or Fortinet, Sonar to mention a few.

There are so many tools to choose from to do SAP testing. In your opinion, which tool is the best choice for SAP testing? What differentiates this tool from its competitors?

In my experience with SAP Core Banking implementation, the best tool to automate without pain and with a strength of agility and support, have been the Microfocus ALM tools (UFT One, UFT One Mobile, LoadRunner, Quality Control Manager) this tool since it emerged in Mercury, and then when it was acquires by HP, advanced too much in functionality and now with Microfocues it is the best tool for all testing life cicle.

Micro Focus delivers a wide portfolio of ADM products that include support for the most common SAP platforms, and helps organizations to manage and execute their SAP transformations at speed and quality. Customers who choose the Micro Focus portfolio know that they are drawing on a long and close partnership between SAP and Micro Focus, which has been focused from the start on ensuring customer success and satisfaction throughout complex SAP transformations.

Organizations manage their back office systems with tools such as
ALM, but as they modernize the front office, they are moving to ALM
Octane to manage the lifecycle of the mobile interfaces, cloud, and
web systems that access them. The front office and the back office are
connected through their data flow, and hence, the lifecycle management
systems must be aligned, through synchronization between ALM
Octane and ALM. Test, defect, and other artefacts can be synchronized
transparently, with both systems being kept updated in real-time. While
there may be different teams working on the front and back end development,
they can collaborate and ensure that nothing is missed.

What is Functional Testing Tools?

Functional Testing refers to the software testing procedures used in software development. Functional Testing Tools analyze what an application does, versus unit testing which analyzes both what an application segment does and how it functions.

Functional Testing offers a proven technical process for IT Central Station users to check and monitor software, ensuring that the functionality is as anticipated when feeding input and examining the output. Dedicated software testers, as well as DevOps teams, test all software to ensure that it conforms to specified requirements.

IT Central Station users look for an independent benchmark during each stage, stating what has and has not been achieved in the testing process. Best practices in Functional Testing start as soon as a function is online, and continues through the application’s completion and first client contact. IT and DevOps managers will run simultaneous applications on their system, with variable user load fluctuations. Specialists would then anticipate that applications be stable and crash resistant in the face of these conditions.

A user application interface is usually supplied with pre-tested components, so testers do not anticipate many surprises once the software is correctly integrated. However, IT Central Station members are consistently required to write custom applications for increasingly complex systems, making the central functions tested by a functional test more system-related rather than user-related.

Functional Testing users expect it to be self-explanatory and easy to use. Support for running across browsers/devices and robustness are essential. The value of Functional Testing is apparent when tools recognize controls and objects from the “Applications Under Test” and how well they do in handling custom objects or objects not recognized, so resulting data should be easy to understand.

IT Central Station professionals focus on how easy the testing process is to set up, execute and manage, as testing should not require much customer support at all. Functional Testing should offer easy GUI and add to maximum IT department productivity, saving time and improving systems.
