Test Automation Architect at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Feb 08 2016

What is most valuable?

The biggest advantage of Business Process Testing is that not only technical skilled people can participate with test automation but also business analysts, which will create better test cases then test automation experts can. The… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Because everyone can create test cases, not only the quantity but also the quality is improved, which results in less defects in production. Also, there is less dependency on technical consultants so they can focus on other tasks.

What needs improvement?

The run speed is not as fast as if a local script would be running, but that is one of the downfalls of using a client/server approach.

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

Before using BPT, I mostly used TD/QC in combination with QTP. We used it with a custom framework. The main issue with most test automation frameworks (including the last one) is that they are highly technical and are hard to maintain. This… more»

What other advice do I have?

It has room for improvement, but in my opinion it’s at the moment “best in class” when used in a (bus) DevOps environment. The most important part is that the components and flows should match with your product under test. Involve the… more»

Regional Infrastructure Manager at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Feb 03 2016

What is most valuable?

Various features provide us with various benefits. We use UFT for the scalability and cross-technology diversity, UFT API for the web-service and database related testing, and HP BPT for the modular testing.

How has it helped my organization?

We can now take test automation through the entire business process -- testing web service availability before automated test packs start, sending and retrieving data via web-services and control of all web service testing in a single tool, along with the GUI testing of business processes across a… more»

What needs improvement?

Initial releases we used of the product (v12) were a little unstable, but with the release of v12.01, we had no further issues.

What other advice do I have?

The product is fairly reasonably priced, so make sure you get the full BPT functionality enabled, but speak to someone who currently works with the product if you have any concerns around limitations. Also get someone in to show you how to do things. Trying to figure things out for yourself takes… more»

What is most valuable?

Its simplicity and easy to integrate approach. By using this solution it is relatively simple to design test suite that can be further drilled down to very simple and atomic business components. The… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In our agile team, the functional testers started designing the automated test scripts by using the automated business components and requesting for new components to be designed. As a result the team… more»

What needs improvement?

Since all the artefacts are maintained in Quality Center sometimes accessing tests to maintain and modify takes a lot of time. If there is network failure while opening then the corresponding script… more»

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

The price could be reduced though to make it more competitive with other products available.

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

This was chosen by the client as a necessary link up of automation with HP Quality Center.

What other advice do I have?

Go for this product only if you have a long time vision of the software under test as this will yield significant output only after investing good amount of time.

Test Automation Engineer with 51-200 employees
Jan 17 2016

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are the re-usability of content and the ease of building test content. We also like the reusability of content and the fact that both manual and automation engineers can run the same test cases.

How has it helped my organization?

The BPT framework is very modular. It has drastically reduced the amount of content we manage for each application, which in turn reduced the amount of maintenance we had to perform. This, of course, resulted in a faster ROI.

What needs improvement?

Test Execution speed has been my biggest concern. HP has improved on it over releases, but there is still room for improvement.

What other advice do I have?

There is learning curve involved in developing best BPT automation framework. Please research on best practices to implement BPT.

Automation QA Specialist at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
Apr 09 2015

What is most valuable?

I like the modularity in the framework. BPT is a fast way to develop automated tests. The big difference with BPT over conventional frameworks with which I have worked is that BPT allows me to separate test development from automation development.

How has it helped my organization?

We implemented this in complete regression suite in an automated fashion.

What needs improvement?

The only one I can really think of is speed to test execution.

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

We used QTP and we switched to BPT. In BPT everybody can participate in designing automation. Even a manual tester can also write the automation component and then later an automation tester can automate the component.

What is Micro Focus Business Process Testing?

Micro Focus Business Process Testing (BPT) test framework software will help you move from one-off manual testing and ad hoc functional automated testing to an architected approach with a library of reusable test components. BPT accelerates the move to component-based testing with an integrated test framework approach to creating a repository of reusable test modules that allow for changes to be made once, then propagated across your distributed agile teams to all affected tests.
