Chart Key
Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Number of total page views
Number of times compared to another product
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

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.
