What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced time-to-market regression from 160+ hours to 12 hours.

What needs improvement?

I’d like to see them improve the number of objects recognized without customization, similar to TestComplete by SmartBear. Simply put: It would save test development time, which would reduce time-to-market.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for eight years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I did not encounter any deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any scalability issues when it was properly integrated with remote execution controls.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I rate customer service 9/10.

Technical Support:

I rate technical support 9/10.

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

We previously used WinRunner and switched due to ease of implementation.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was easy and straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

An in-house team implemented it.

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

Have a look at the HP UFT pricing model; it’s changed.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Smart Bear’s TestComplete.

What other advice do I have?

It is a great alternative, and has outstanding object recognition & functionality.

License cost, ease of implementation, expandability, extensibility, reusability, availability of useful code and knowledge are some of the reasons to consider switching.

I agree with this improvement. Another issue with my AUT is that there is no coding standard and about 15 developers doing there own thing and not always providing good object properties to even capture. So, a bigger issue for me for this review.

I noticed that you stated that you also evaluated TestComplete. What was the determining factor for your company to choose UFT over TestComplete?
