IBM Rational Functional Tester Review

Quiet stable but it has memory issues frequently

Valuable Features

It supports:

  • Siebel
  • SAP
  • Terminal based applications

Room for Improvement

Reports - Default results log has a lot of useless info, and this is hiding the actual information needed. I have to use customized reports, which we don't expect from paid tool.

Use of Solution

Eight months.

Deployment Issues

Installation is straight forward.

Stability Issues

Quiet stable but it has memory issues frequently, which can be solved easily.

Scalability Issues

It is able to handle volume.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Haven't contacted customer service so far.

Technical Support:

Good, encountered a problem and a solution was provided by tech support within a couple of days.

Previous Solutions

We were replacing an expensive solution - Worksoft Certify.

Initial Setup

Installation is straight forward.

Implementation Team

In-house team.


It's cheaper than our existing solution, Worksoft Certify

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Organization bought the whole Rational Suite at a very low price.

Other Advice

It does not fully justify being a paid tool, and it needs improvement. But as it is built on Ellipse/Java and costs is less than other tools, it is recommended.
