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?
6/10 Technical Support
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.
