We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very easy to maintain. With scripts, I can change one line and in one step. Whatever I want, I can do. I don't need to be an expert to use it."
"The easy of use and ease of integration of Worksoft Certify are very good."
"During our yearly upgrades, we have now gotten them down to ten days or less. We have Worksoft run all our integration tests, where it used to take probably six weeks to do that manually."
"Improvement means for us that we have to be better in quality. Due to automation, you can run every automated test case twice a week. If you do it manually, you do it once per release. This is a quality improvement."
"We found that Worksoft is easier to use because our business experts can do the tests. We didn't have to have IT experts."
"The most valuable feature is having a no-code solution for automation, so our QA team and some of our business users can work on automation. Then, they don't have to be developers."
"With Worksoft, we have been able to automate six of our smoke tests in four months."
"We were able to use Worksoft to automate all of the actions that we would have to take after an SAP refresh. This way we do the refresh, then that night or right afterwards, we run the Worksoft script and it resets all of our testing users. This sets them up with the right access, the right approvals, and just sets up everything on the back-end so we can do our scripts the next night."
"I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component."
"The ease of creating policies has been the most useful of the solution's features. It's a quick ramp-up time. It's easy for our support staff to implement the policies in the API management layer."
"It's a good return on my investment."
"Tracing in Apigee is a very good feature."
"There are just a lot of security features in general."
"Anyone with basic knowledge can build an API."
"The most valuable features are scalability and technical support."
"The flexibility allows you to quickly run a cloud-native application architecture."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is Collections."
"We can also submit requests multiple times and it allows us to capture the response each time by using utility scripts."
"The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution."
"The variables part is good. We can easily define the variables and we don't have to manually do a change every time, it gets automatically updated."
"No coding required."
"What is most valuable for me is that we can create and share collections between the team members."
"The user-interface is very good."
"It is nice to have different workspaces. You have your personal workspace, and then you have a team workspace. In general, I like its UI. It is quite cool."
"I would like to see the impact analysis integrated with the performance testing tool. We have multiple tools doing multiple items. I would like to have one common tool."
"We are looking for some enhancements on the Capture 2.0 tool. This would give us the ability to control it directly, like we could with Capture 1.0. Right now, Capture 2.0 doesn't really work for our Business Analysts."
"There was a change to Capture 2.0. In the end, there have been some challenges with the newer version. Therefore, the company testers, the local ones, do not want to use Capture 2.0."
"When it is unstable, there will be times when a test that we are running in Certify will just stop, and it will say, "Aborted." There will be errors. There will be no explanation as to why it happens. It has now happened maybe one out of 20 times. When it happens, I just tell our QA team to stop Certify and restart it, hoping we don't see it again."
"For the couple of the issues that we were really scratching our heads over, we were in communication with the technical support several times, but they never got back to us."
"We ran into some issues with the version that we were on during the initial setup. We ran into a bug on one version, then they upgraded us to a new version, and we got hit with another bug. So, they had to put us in a beta. That was a little frustrating. However, besides the bugs that we ran into, the install was pretty straightforward."
"The product had some UI issues."
"We have had run ins with some bugs on Business Process Procedure (BPP) and Execution Manager."
"Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates."
"The company needs to better support webhooks. It used to support webhooks and their policies and they have since stopped. They had some issues in the product and they abandoned the support for them. It's not come back since."
"The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution."
"As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved."
"I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity"
"Apigee is demanding on the infrastructure so the setup cost is very high for an on-premises deployment."
"Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful."
"The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake."
"I have display issues in my Windows that need to be fixed."
"I would like that if you click on one of the fields you should be able to see the entire row of fields, names, and values."
"The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan."
"If we have a certain build on one machine it won't work with another build even if we are using the same URL. It would give us a connection refuse. So developing environment compatibility would make it better."
"Could be more user friendly."
"An area that needs some improvement would be to allow multiple windows with different collections to be open at the same time."
"There needs to be more flexibility surrounding the testing of SOAP APIs."
"I have recently noticed that, for some reason, I am not able to import collections in JSON. It is weird because I was able to do it before. When you create a new collection and documentation, in tests, you usually have to click Save. If you don't click Save, your collections don't sync with other devices, which is something I don't like. It is not clear for the users in a shared workspace, and I usually forget to click Save and end up losing all the collections that I created. I create a lot of routes, and clicking Save all the time isn't efficient. Instead of clicking Save all the time, there should be an option to save everything in one go."
"By using automation, it reduced about 75 percent of the time when compared to any other tool."
"Saving money and better quality, these are the benefits of Certify."
"I think they came out with a different type of licensing specifically for testing. Therefore, you don't have to use a more expensive user license, you can use an automation license. So potentially, if we had 100 use cases, we could spin up a 100 different machines, have them all run and be done in five minutes. That would be the goal, but I don't know if that would actually succeed or not."
"This solution has enabled us to automate in order to tremendously save time. Only first time when you are recording and creating the script will you spend some time with it, the rest of the time, you are just executing."
"If we do one manual process, it could take approximately two hours. The same process using Worksoft probably takes ten minutes."
"We have seen ROI by being able to free up and give time back to the business for other value-added work."
"On our last big SAP implementation project, we inserted an automation resource into the beginning of the project. Between automating regression processes, data staging, and using our automation to help repair cutover and conversion issues. We saved the project about $1,700,000."
"Worksoft has paid for itself fives times over."
"The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made."
"It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive."
"It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors."
"We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."
"I would like to see the implementation of further options for billing because as it is now, the opportunities you have in terms of a package are limited."
"The iicense is subscription-based."
"We are currently using the free version, but we have plans to buy a license."
"We are using the free version that is available."
"Its price is moderate as compared to other competitors. The version that we are using is not open source, so it is not free."
