What is most valuable?

The recording feature is quite good as it helps us to find out how things are working.

What needs improvement?

There is quite a bit of room for improvement. As time has gone on the product has failed to improve. Basically, Micro Focus' UFT (Unified Functional Testing) was a good product 15 years ago when it was first introduced. They have not really… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As far as comparing to other products, the licensing costs for UFT are very high. I don't remember the cost exactly. The maintenance of the service contract was very high as well and, frankly — compared with more modern tools — it was and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Micro Focus UFT is an okay solution for specific purposes that we use it for. I also use Katalon Studio and, since Katalon Studios is Java and Groovy-based, it is much better and more up-to-date for testing.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for those considering this product as a solution is that they should look closely at alternative products to make a good comparison of features, capabilities, and cost. At the moment we are also using a product called Katalon… more»

What is most valuable?

One, it's module based and it's giving functionality. That is, first of all we can really implement it as an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). We can utilize our concept and our functional people to work with the tool and without having a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

When we used it for web based application, so it was quite poor.

What needs improvement?

It is poor for a web based application. We are living in very integrated organization are most of the companies out there. There's the big companies we have these organizations that we work with, where we have plenty of different services… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When talking about continuous testing, so then the tool is not really good at all because you need to purchase some additional tools. For example, the Execution Manager and other tools, which are an additional cost. Another added cost is… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are using it so far for regression testing. We have reduced 5% to 10% of regression related issues. This is a huge impact on our organization. So that's really quite good improvement in our eyes.

What is most valuable?

The solution is great as a record and playback tool. It also has valuable regression testing.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs more training manuals or some form of online forum for learning. It needs more documentation. Some sort of troubleshooting portal should be available for users. The solution could be faster. It would be good to increase the reusability of the code so that rerun time can be saved… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is pretty good. Other options to use are TestComplete, and, for negative scenarios, Katalon Studios. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
