More Broadcom Service Virtualization Pros »

"The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment took about seven months.""You can build your own framework. I think that's the most powerful feature. You can connect with a lot of other tools that use frameworks, or keywords, etc. That helps make it a stronger solution.""The most valuable aspect of Selenium is that it gives you the flexibility to customize or write your own code, your own features, etc. It's not restricted by licensing.""The solution is very flexible; there are different ways of using it. It's open-source and has a lot of support on offer.""The most valuable feature is the Selenium grid, which allows us to run tests in parallel.""Ability to integrate with every other tool.""What I like the most about this product is that it gives us a lot of freedom to code anything, there is no restriction on the type of function you can do.""I like that it is a robust and free open source. There is a lot of community support available, and there are a lot of developers using them. There's good community support."

Cons

"Technical support isn't very good. Sometimes their recommendations were not very clear.""The solution is open-source, so everyone relies on the community to assist with troubleshooting and information sharing. If there's a complex issue no one has faced, it may take a while to solve the problem.""The solution's UI path needs to be modernized.""The solution does not offer up enough information in regards to personality testing.""I would like to see XPath made more reliable so that it can be used in all browsers.""Could have additional readability and abstraction.""Selenium is good when the team is really technical because Selenium does less built-in methods. If it came with more built-in and pre-built methods it would be even easier for less technical people to work with it. That's where I think the improvement can be.""There should be standardized frameworks to build automation."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are additional fees for advanced-level technical support.""I don't have the exact dollar amount, but we have spent close to $1,000,000 for a three-year agreement, for an enterprise level."
