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

Pros
Compared to other tools we have been looking at, you don't have to be a programmer to operate it, though it helps. It also a product that can be used by business people.We are satisfied with the support of Tricentis.We have multiple applications, and it supports parallel execution. It has mobile automation.Multiple scanning engines to automate many different applications.Object Identification Wizard.Image recognition: It has allowed us to automate a GUI section of our product which involves drawing different topologies.Good use in Agile workshops, where the person needs to conceptualize the tests before the developer provides the complete application interface.The tool can be handled without any knowledge in parameterisation, especially the TestCaseDesign which makes the tool mighty and stable.

We have used it for the web and Windows-based applications. It is very productive in terms of execution.​Record and Replay to ease onboarding of new users.Object Repository Technology, which is a good mean to identify graphical components of the applications under test.With frequent releases, using automation to perform regression testing can save us huge amount of time and resources.Hidden among the kitchen sink of features is a new Data Generation tool called the Test Combinations Generator.I like the fact that we can use LeanFT with our UFT licenses as well.Being able to automate different applications makes day-to-day activities a lot easier.The most valuable features for us are the GUI, the easy identification of objects, and folder structure creation.

Cons
Setup wasn't that straightforward; it was more complex. It all depends on the environment, because there were a lot of errors on our applications. Therefore, it wasn't an easy setup for us.It needs better integration with JIRA.I would like a better user interface.Making it more stable would be good because we get around 90% stability.The reporting function was lacking in usability and detail.Security, UI, and basic performance improvements could be done to the product to enhance its use.Running the regression – if multiple lists are executed at once or if a list contains 200+ tests, it’s a pain to stop the execution.Might have a learning curve, as it does not follow the traditional Record-Play functionality, but tests have to be built from requirements or Agile story cards.

Needs to improve the integration with the CI/CD pipeline (VSTS and report generation).I would like to have detailed description provided to test the cloud-based applications.Scripting has become more complex from a maintenance standpoint to support additional browsers.Jumping to functions is supported from any Action/BPT Component code, but not from inside a function library where the target function exists in another library file. Workaround: Select search entire project for the function.I'd like to see UFT integrated more with some of the open source tools like Selenium, where web is involved.Perhaps more coverage as far as different languages go. I'm talking more about object identification.It doesn't support Telerik UI controls and we are currently looking for a patch for this.You have to deal with issues such as the firewall and how can the tool talk with the application, i.e., if the application is on a company network and so on. That, of course, is important to figure out.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We hired a consultant to figure out all the tools in our company and how they fit in our company before we purchased the solution.The pricing is high, but altogether it offers you the ability to automate all sorts of applications: desktop, web, mobile, etc.Expensive, but for long-term projects, it is paying back.​It is an expensive tool compared to other test automation tools. It has a lot of advantages over other tools.

For the price of five automation licenses, you simply would not be able to hire five manual testers for two years worth of 24/7 manual testing work on demand.It's an expensive solution.
