Micro Focus UFT One Review

I was able to reduce regression and functional test times by 80%, but creating a framework that can be reused across other tests is complex and time consuming.


What is most valuable?

It allows me to perform all in one place--

  • Regression tests (tests which check that the existing functionality of an application still works as it should after other parts of the application have been modified),
  • Functional tests (to verify a specific action or function of code), and
  • Service testing (automated testing protocol)

How has it helped my organization?

I was able to reduce regression and functional test times by 80%.

What needs improvement?

It could be improved with greater browser compatibility and more frequent updates.

Also, running a simple test is straightforward, but creating a framework that can be reused across other tests is complex and time consuming.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for three to four years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I didn't encounter any issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

When debugging code in UFT, it would crash, freeze and hang a lot.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We had no issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

6/10

Technical Support:

8/10

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Selenium Webdriver.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it with our in-house team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

HP UFT cost a lot and there are other free tools that can do the same and much more.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I joined the company after the decision was made to use HP UFT.

What other advice do I have?

If cost is not an issue, then UFT can be considered. There are other tools on the market that can do the same for less.
