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. That's a strong point of this tool because open source tools like Selenium can run only one protocol, like Web, for example. A lot of legacy systems do not use Web as their front end, however. They use a Windows-built .Net application or something else that is not web-enabled.

Our developers only use it for record and play. They use Java but don't need to understand much programming knowledge, so this helps. They don't check the end-to-end flow or regression, which is really only required when we have a new build, so it makes the job easier. It is also both mobile and Windows-based. The app development team has recommended the UFT Developer version, as this is cheaper. All our tests are run unattended, automated, and they run on remote servers. The Java and .NET programmers have said that "This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us."

The cost is the most important factor in this tool.

Feature-wise it's okay, and it's comparable with other tools. All of the features that we need for our testing are available. 

We have additional features such as reporting, and one other important feature, in UFT, is the AI-based object recognition plugin. This is a good feature in UFT.

The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local. It does not require as much scripting.

The most valuable feature is the object repository. The objects get identified using the tool or where the different properties of the objects are being captured. 

Also, object identification is something that really fascinates me about UFT.
