Quotes From Members

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

Pros
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.

The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder.

Cons
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.

Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
