UFT (QTP) Review

Well supported and lots of resources available but has high deployment costs


Advantages:

Well supported and lots of resources available who have certifications, but mostly used in Financial Institutions. Integrated add-on for Flex, Web Services, Silverlight, and Web HTML. Framework issues can be easily taken care of with Odin AXE framework, which uses XML and simple interface. Lots of resources are available who can work on and use QTP.

Disadvantages:

Ability to recognize complex UI and dynamic content hinders the tool. Mostly used in Data-driven web testing, which makes use of Excel sheets; easy for the user to use, but may cause issues in maintainability. Windows System only focused. Not suitable for Unix-Clones and Mac OS. High deployment costs, and later will incur maintenance costs also, as each programmer has a different coding style and the new user has to learn and then work on it. Learning curve for it is not steep, as users are available who know VBA and VB Script.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

I like QuickTest Professional because it's easy to use, it has a simple interface and it uses a real programming language (VB Script) with numerous resources available. QuickTest Professional is significantly easier for a non-technical person to adapt and create working test cases, compared to other quality assurance tools. I also noticed that it has numerous existing functions available for implementation and it supports .NET development environment. The main con, as you already said, is that QuickTest Professional is expensive.

Hire a manual tester for 10k a year, and 1k each year afterword. Not really expensive at all.

Have you tried automating against Microsoft's newest browser known as Microsoft Edge? If so, what was your overall assessment?
