Parasoft SOAtest Review

​It provides easy handling of RESTful API's, but more scalability is needed, especially when testing in elastics/cloud platforms.


What is most valuable?

  • API support for JSON and REST payload
  • Virtualization
  • Complete visibility of all the conditions, circumstances, and influences surrounding and affecting the testing of software servers and environment

How has it helped my organization?

It provides easy handling of RESTful API's and figuring out exact API scalabilty, responses, and failed API's, returning code captured by the fault injections.

What needs improvement?

More descriptive reports are needed.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for six months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered, however, more scalability is needed, especially when testing in elastics/cloud platforms.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

8/10.

Technical Support:

9/10.

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

We previously used JMeter and were offered better support from Parasoft. As well as this, the reports and user friendliness of SOAtest helped us make the decision to switch.

How was the initial setup?

It's very easy to set up and doesn't take much time. You don't need installation expertise to set it up.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team from Parasoft themselves who were very good.

What was our ROI?

It's 100%.

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

The price is a little expensive in terms of users.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated JMeter as well, which was our existing product.

What other advice do I have?

Even validate SOASTA tool too.
