Zeenyx AscentialTest Review
Flexible Object recognition and snapshot integration for step creation.

What is most valuable?

  • Excellent Support for PowerBuilder Applications.
  • Excellent Test Result Tracking and Test Result Reporting.
  • Re-usability of steps user defined parts.
  • Flexible Object recognition and snapshot integration for step creation.
  • Excel integration was an important factor for my projects.

How has it helped my organization?

In conjunction with our team we have integrated Automated Regression in to our core Reinsurance Application to monitor expected results against nightly production and test environment results. As recently as this month the regression scripts identified some key issues in our key quarterly reporting. Invaluable. To give some idea of the complexity of our applications, our core Reinsurance application was developed as an in-house product but has been sold to five other major companies.

What needs improvement?

The ability to copy internal tables would be nice.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I am a 30+ year IT professional and the level of support I have gotten has been unparalleled. A special thanks to Brian Le Suer who has hand held myself and my team through the whole regression scripting process. We were all new to automated regression and Brian made the whole process easy and comfortable. It would not have gotten done without his support. A number of the functions we needed to complete were new approaches for Zeenyx Ascential and they always came back with an answer and solutions.

Technical Support:

Excellent. All issues have always gotten resolved and the response time from all Ascential teams has been seamless.

Which solutions did we use previously?


How was the initial setup?

No - we were hand held.

What about the implementation team?

In-house with Ascential Support.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes. We had looked a a HP solution but were not comfortable with the support they would seem to offer for PowerBuilder.

What other advice do I have?

I have a lot more regression projects in the pipeline. With Ascential support at the level I currently receive I am very confident they will all be successful.

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

Yes the product is a complete solution for automation testing with its inbuilt test, data management and Reporting. With Test set feature, regression testing has been made very easy with reduced execution time.
