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

Pros
The solution is very flexible; there are different ways of using it. It's open-source and has a lot of support on offer.The most valuable aspect of Selenium is that it gives you the flexibility to customize or write your own code, your own features, etc. It's not restricted by licensing.The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment took about seven months.You can build your own framework. I think that's the most powerful feature. You can connect with a lot of other tools that use frameworks, or keywords, etc. That helps make it a stronger solution.The primary benefit is its cost and the ability to use the cloud.Our platform runs into several thousand screens and a few thousand test cases, something which would typically take months to test manually. As of today, the entire process takes a little over two days to run.Selenium has helped to complete tests in less time, which would not be possible relying on manual testing only.It is programming language agnostic, you can write tests in most currently used languages.

The recording feature is quite good as it helps us to find out how things are working.The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.The most valuable feature for me is the number of protocols that can be tested. It not only tests Web, but also SAP, Siebel, .Net, and even pdf.One of the important features, which speeds up the automation testing development with LeanFT, is its object repository functions. Object identification are the most time-consuming aspect of building automation tests. LeanFT gives that out of the box. It helps you identify the objects and after that, once you got the object in place, then it's just about building the test scripts. So it reduces your development time significantly.It is a product that can meet regulations of the banking industry.

Cons
The solution does not offer up enough information in regards to personality testing.The solution's UI path needs to be modernized.Technical support isn't very good. Sometimes their recommendations were not very clear.The solution is open-source, so everyone relies on the community to assist with troubleshooting and information sharing. If there's a complex issue no one has faced, it may take a while to solve the problem.It does require a programming skill set. I would like the product not to require a heavy programming skill set and be more user-friendly for someone without a programming background.In the beginning, we had issues with several test cases failing during regression. Over a period of time, we built our own framework around Selenium which helped us overcome of these issues.Improvement in Selenium's ability to identify and wait for the page/element to load would be a big plus. This would ensure that our failed test cases will drop by 60%.It would be very great if Selenium would provide some framework examples so newcomers could get started more quickly.

The product has shown no development over the past 10 or 15 years.UFT is like a flagship of testing tools, but it's too expensive and people are not using it so much. They should work on their pricing to make themselves more competitive.It's now too heavy and they should be making it faster. We do an attempt at automatic regression testing. We schedule a test to start at a certain time. It takes a lot of time to download the resources and start UFT. Competitors in this area have tools that start faster and run the test faster. For example, if the test at our side will take 10 minutes, another tool will do that in one minute.The parallel execution of the tests needs improvement. When we are running tests in LeanFT, there are some limitations in terms of running the same tests simultaneously across different browsers. If I'm running a test, let's say to log in, I should be able to execute it through IE, through Microsoft Edge, through Chrome, through Mozilla, etc. This capability doesn't exist in LeanFT. Parallel execution of the test cases across different browsers need to be added.It is unstable, expensive, inflexible, and has poor support.
