We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET.I think the pricing is quite fair because this solution provides a lot of functionalities, and is quite stable.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.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.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.

Cons
UI should be more user friendly: better usability, more testing oriented.I would rate the tech support a nine out of ten. They need more knowledge about the connectivity to DevOps orchestration.Needs some additional lightweight, portable elements.​From a reporting perspective I think we would like to have a more user-friendly approach.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.CA actually releases a new version every year. We had issues with the upgrade prior to the latest one.

The ability to configure the memory and CPU for the test machines should be included.The ability to install profiles on iOS real mobile devices should be included.Progress towards reducing application testing time can be made.Lacks the ability to start multiple tests simultaneously.Integration with Github, as well as several other similar tools, could be improved.An image comparison would be a nice feature to include in the Sauce Labs product.Sometimes pasting text while using "text object" does not seem to work, and it slows down testing times quite a bit.It should provide more examples of script code.

​Now that we have an enterprise license, we no longer have to worry about minutes each month!​Compared with other services, Sauce Labs is a bit expensive.When you reach the Enterprise licensing tier, base level being with 10 concurrent test sessions, pricing is essentially per-unit-of-concurrency thereafter with a relatively linear increase and not much benefit for "bulk".Trial the product and see if it suits your needs.Go ahead please. Try it at a smaller scale.It could be less like pay-per-use with a lower rate.
