Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The interface is ok and they have the ability to re-load tests so that you can reuse them.""The dashboards are very good and consolidate all of the tests that you are performing with the client.""The most valuable feature of ReadyAPI is that it is user-friendly.""It has the ability to combine it with different CI/CD tools.""A single platform for functional testing, load testing security, and service actualization.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jira and the test management tools."

"Sauce Connect gave us ability to test an application that was hosted locally.""Supplying devices to a testing team of possibly close to one thousand testers and developers is a great undertaking but Sauce Labs has made this very easy and a welcomed solution.""As stated earlier we use Sauce Labs for a combination of automated testing and manual testing. Therefore the most useful features are the ability to run the functional automated tests via a Sauce Labs tunnels which allows access to applications in our internal network. The second most useful feature is the manual side.""The most valuable feature is the cross-browser feature, it has many android and iOS devices both simulators and real devices. It's easy to integrate. I also like video recording too.""Sauce Lab analytics helped us to get detailed knowledge on test cases execution and logs.""I have found the live test section with Sauce Labs to be extremely valuable. When you can't quite figure out why a test is failing, you can go to the live test results section within their tool and launch your test (specifying a given OS/browser, or device) manually and step through the test to see the issue more clearly, usually opening up the developer's tool console and watching the network calls and console (within Chrome) to usually find the underlying issue.""The insights section provides a great overall state of the automation suite and can identify trends relatively quickly. If we see a dip in our passing rate over time, we can look at what changed when the test started failing to find the root cause rather than doing a quick fix to find that the test fails a short time later.""Live device testing. As we all know, It's really hard and challenging to find/purchase many real devices to test because it will be costly and not all the team can be able to purchase all of the devices out there. We used to have a lot of real devices under our labs. However, it is really time-consuming to maintain those devices and make sure they are up to date with the testing requirements."

Cons
"I would like to see a better dashboard for monitoring in the next release of this solution.""If ReadyAPI had more integration with all of the big tools on the market then this would be very useful.""Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.""The performance in some cases needs improvement. Sometimes it requires too many resources.""Lacking flexibility of adding more custom verification for security testing.""The reporting is not very robust and needs to be improved."

"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.""If I had to speak of an area that could be improved it would probably have to be the speed of interaction with the devices. There is at times a considerable amount of lag while using some of the virtual and at times even physical device farm""We have found that during automated testing this can be very slow. This causes inconsistencies with the tests. It's very difficult to rely on a service when you can't be sure if a test will pass or fail the next time it runs. This means building in a lot of sync time into the tests which in turn slows them down. If this speed could be improved then the service would be much better.""The only drawback is the speed, it will be good if we have a server in Asia too. It will be great if we can improve speed while initialization and execution.""They should provide a JIRA integration plugin so that we can easily log issues.""Overall, I think Sauce Labs provides us with a valuable tool and resource. As far as what could be improved, I would say the overall test execution time. Some of the calls take a bit longer than I expect, for example in web browser tests; while the execution time isn't obnoxious, it could be improved so that overall tests/test suites finish faster.""The one issue I have is the 14-day trial that a new user gets for free. I understand the concept of the trial period; however, I think this could be revamped to a free 30-minute run time every few months or after a significant update once the trial period has ended."
