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

Pros
This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.The basic framework and project organization is very good.This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation.The functionality of the data is very good. You can upload and disperse data using the solution.We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which is very handy.We are now performing automated testing in 15 minutes, which were previously taking a long time when doing it manually.I personally like the 'Object Spy' feature of this tool. It makes it easy to find an element on the web page.The best feature is the split up between test cases and the test object. This allows us to easily change an error.

Cons
They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version.Katalon doesn't support testing of hybrid applications. It's a limitation.The Object Spy is rather frustrating to work with, so I tend not to use it.It should start working on Silverlight automation.Support options need improvement. It is sometimes hard to find a solution to any given problem, thus you are forced to use another solution.Object Spy is brittle. When I try to capture objects, I have to proceed multiple times before it works.

We tried automation but it's not easy to integrate with the synching and some of the mission tools that we use for automated testing of APIs.The UI should be improved.Could integrate the graphing module for load testing.
