It’s been really easy to automate the same application TestComplete struggled with. I have been able to automate two of our key applications in just a few months. I haven’t even taken their training.The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice.

Cons
The solution is not easily scalable. If you want to extend the solution, you need to purchase a different kind of license. You also have to work with the IBM team to assist in scaling.
