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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We would purchase more licenses right now if they were cheaper. Pricing is a little bit of a hindrance.""It is expensive compared to some of the other automation tools in the market. However, the benefits and ROI has proved that it has been a good investment.""The initial upfront cost in terms of licenses, plus all the money that we spent developing tests, has proven it's worth. Now, we can do a regression test suite in ten days as opposed to sixteen weeks.""Our ROI is primarily a reduction in testing time. The testing, when we were doing it manually, was 30 to 40 percent of the project's cost.""We ended up buying too many licenses. They were very good at selling it to us, and probably oversold it a little. We bought 45 licenses and have never used more than twenty. However, they gave us a pretty significant discount on the bigger license, so it made sense for us to buy enough that we wouldn't have to go back and ask for more.""We could use Certify to do robotic process automation, which is basically running a process on your correction system instead of your test system. Therefore, we may do that in the future.""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."

Overview
Worksoft is a leading global provider of automation software for high-velocity business process testing and discovery. Enterprises worldwide use Worksoft intelligent automation to innovate faster, lower technology risk, reduce costs, improve quality, and deeply understand their real end-to-end business processes. Global 5000 companies across all industries choose Worksoft for high speed process discovery and functional testing of digital, web, cloud, mobile, big data, and dozens of enterprise applications, including SAP, Oracle, and Salesforce.com.

Micro Focus Service Test is based on Virtual User Generator (VuGen) like Micro Focus LoadRunner software, which is code-centric and uses a technical interface that can be challenging for functional testing teams to utilize. It has also had instances of difficulty parsing some Web Services Description Languages (WSDLs) for complex services.

TestDrive, the only truly code-free test automation tool in the world. Test 4X faster end-to-end across all applications
 All significant application vendors, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and Salesforce, have moved or are in the process of moving their user interfaces to the browser. 

TestDrive not only tests browsers but also client/server and legacy applications, all without the need for high cost, specialized automation engineers.

TestDrive’s unique ability to check every element of every screen makes it the only viable way to run a full regression test.

Result: higher-quality applications, delivered to the market in a shorter period of time.

100% code-free- no need for programming skills Playback timing, screenshots, analysis of all the visible and invisible screen elements are all handled automatically by TestDrive which lets you concentrate on the testing!

A.I. Object recognition & simplification-Your view of the application content is not cluttered with irrelevant components You see only the items you are interested in, and hence it is simple to identify what you have, what you can interact with and what properties you want to validate. Without this, it would be impossible to understand the real content of each web page.

Human vision annotation Patented user annotation thinks like a user does

Automatic synchronization Including over single page web apps (BusySense) You do not have to worry about varying response times for the application, nor do you have to code ‘timing loops’ to check if the application is in the right state. Synchronization errors are simply something we do not get, and you don’t have to worry about them.

Easy script maintenance Self -healing minimizes maintenance Script maintenance is probably the biggest reason for automation projects to fail; it becomes harder to fix the scripts before you can use them than to test manually. When changes are needed, perhaps because of some new input, self-healing takes you through inserting the new input or action while the script runs and adapts to the latest version. At the end of a test, you can designate the results as a new baseline. Maintenance virtually disappears and the biggest killer of automation along with it.

One script, many browsers Record over Chrome, playback over Firefox etc.
You can quickly test in different environments and configurations with no extra work to be sure of browser compatibility. TestDrive will run seamlessly across every browser enabling cross-browser testing at the click of a button, without the need to re-create. This is even true of the previously difficult to automate, single page ‘Ajax’ applications.

Out-of-the- box full regression testing.
Most testing tools have validation based solely on ‘assertions. Meaning you specify what you want to check; a technique which is great for some situations. But that alone is a bit like asking one of the children to feed the cat they do, and later you find the dog was dead which they did not mention. Testing tools can be as pedantic! But not TestDrive, it will check all the essential data at the same time. What is different, moved, gone, appeared – all things you cannot easily define a check for and hence will catch you out if you do not know about them. This is grown-up regression testing.

Checking rules Automated Testing.
Indeed, when you run an automated test, you will have some specific objectives to validate, probably expressed as an assertion. But it also makes sense to check other things simultaneously, and checking rules enable you to do this automatically. The user can select which checking rules are to be verified as an automated test executes. These include base-line comparisons, specific content, spell-checks, link checks, hardware impact checks and performance checks. It saves you time, takes little set-up and expands the coverage and purpose of a test, to trap more errors.
Data driven Expanded coverage with variable data.
Data-driven tests are fundamental to expanding test coverage. Use spreadsheet-style data to drive inputs, to act as values to verify against and even update columns so that the values can be used later in the test. It is a simple drag and drop process to match the columns to the inputs on the screen. It could not be easier and no sign of anything like coding!

Modular playlists Optimizing re-use
Uniquely TestDrive separates instructions on how to navigate an application from the logic, tests, da-ta drivers and success criteria. If the application under test changes significantly and the navigation has to be replaced, it ensures that the business logic survives. This means fewer scripts to maintain as the modular scripts are reused and repurposed in the Playlist that drives each scenario.

Multiple applications? End-to-end testing?
Most organizations have many applications that run the business and hence carry out end-to-end testing, which must be done across multiple applications (integrated or otherwise). A single test can embrace multiple applications and technologies enabling you to have a complete end to end scenarios and check each step in a business process along the way whether cloud, browser, green screen, Windows GUI, Java, SAP, Salesforce or anything. One solution, for all your application testing
