What is most valuable?

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

I believe in evolution before revolution. I actually saw the birth of the product, which arose through demand from R&D teams to create it in the first place. This has been a global need from a… more»

What other advice do I have?

First, continuous assessment, continuous insight and quality, as well as testing that continues to be driven onwards. We have to think about the end-to-end stack, from problem definition to solution… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the possibility to code the test framework with C# and Java and therefore, use the development teams.

How has it helped my organization?

The technical part of test automation does not need a separate technology for developing test suites for end-to-end testing, regression testing and user acceptance… more»

What needs improvement?

Improvement is still needed for stability and performance. Still, it is at the beginning of a technological shift for HP test automation. The tool would be best if HP made… more»

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

Setup cost was around €10,000. Day-to-day processes would be 0 as the technical part of test automation will be integrated completely into development. This will save the… more»

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

Previously we used HP UFT and Selenium because there was actually no alternative products at the market.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure that you have test management at the same level as test automation otherwise money will be lost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

All options in the test automation market are evaluated at all times. Rational Robot, Tosca, Soap UI, etc.

What is most valuable?

What’s awesome about it is you can use the same language the developers already use.

How has it helped my organization?

LeanFT integrates with our developers work-flow. Our developers can now perform automation using familiar tools, programming language, and IDE. This helps get the whole team involved in test… more»

What needs improvement?

In the next release I'd like to see HP enable LeanFT to work with Sauce Labs. I know HP has their own solution, but it would be better if it were more integrate-able in the spirit of being more… more»

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

We had used a lot of different applications and we needed to shift left to new development practices. So we ended up using Selenium without native Java. Unfortunately, before LeanFT, we ran into… more»

What other advice do I have?

To me, it has to be using the same tools that the developers already use and that it fits in with their workflow. Testers should be using the same tools as the developers, making the development… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the ability to customize, if needed, and to integrate with ALM because its our test management. The ability to implement with Jenkins for dev ops is also a valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

In our case, because we’re in the insurance industry, we have technologies from 20 years old to brand new. That’s one reason that LeanFT is so great -- because it can support all those technologies, even the older ones.

What needs improvement?

In the next release, I'd like to see ties into C# and Java, enabling us to work more closely with development. However, from what I’ve seen, LeanFT object recognition looks great. The identifiers for an object can be the same for multiple… more»

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

We are a subsidiary, so decision making was limited. Most recently they decided ALM would be the enterprise standard. For automation they decided to use UFT.

What other advice do I have?

My most important criteria when selecting a vendor is compatibility with my systems, applications, platforms, and whatever apps I am using. Automate where you can and also try to shift your testing to the left. Testing management is key.
