The most valuable feature is that it supports so many protocols. We, being a large bank, have almost all the protocols, and it supports all of them, so that's one good thing.

Scalability has actually worked well and we are able to bring it to multiple environments.
It is easy to use, has a faster time to market, and provides flexibility.

You can have a lot of different people with different technologies use the tool, without any programming experience at all, all the way up to people who can program. And then, the more technical that you are, the more programming you have, the more you're able to customize the tool.
It's got probably the greatest amount of features, in terms of different technologies that you can automate and virtualize, out of any of the solutions out there.

The innovation is amazing. CA has continued to add to services that it supports, the transports that it supports, and has built all of the enterprise capabilities into the product as well.
Unit testing or early life testing did not have to be stopped or delayed because those services were not available.
We had a number of back-end services that were not available during testing times. What this had allowed us to do is get our early life testing done while those services are not available.

The ability to do parallel development and testing reduces our costs for duplicating environments, improving the productivity of our developers, and bringing products faster to market.
It is definitely scalable.

You can create virtual services from a live recording or convert raw traffic into request/response pairs.
Helps us to remove barriers that we have with dependencies on services that we don't own, or services that don't even exist yet.

We have been using it extensively for the shift left process and testing. It helps us to accelerate and virtualize services and assets that we don't have. It enables to test faster.
We have had developers produce code later than we wanted to, but we've had some other stuff that was dependent on that. So what we were able to do was virtualize these assets and then go forward with our developer and not have to wait for these additional services to be available.
We are able to quickly scale our requests. We have tested across thousands of requests. We have had no problems so far.

One major feature I would like to see is on the user administration part. Right now, anybody can access any of the folders and any of the projects.

CA actually releases a new version every year. We had issues with the upgrade prior to the latest one.

UI should be more user friendly: better usability, more testing oriented.

I really want to see more of the "express" kind of model, where you get a little bit for free. I'd love to be able to see you be able to edit and author tests without having to be connected to a licensed server. And then, if you want to go and execute tests, then you go and connect to the server... I think it would unblock people to be able to do a lot more work from home or from remote places, where they can't really connect to the server.

We had to implement an external service catalog. We put it in ServiceNow. I would like to see an integrated service catalog.

DevTest is pretty massive. It's hard to tell what different parts of it can be used to do different things. They should modulize it more.

I would rate the tech support a nine out of ten. They need more knowledge about the connectivity to DevOps orchestration.
