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

What is most valuable?

The ability to develop scripts in Visual Studio, Visual Studio integration, is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

The integration of the object library can be improved. It's a bit clunky. It also has some commands that are difficult to use sometimes. We work around its deficiencies and forget that it's a deficiency. They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.

What other advice do I have?

The product is very good and I would recommend it. You should make sure that it works with the technology you're testing. Some technologies have very particular functionality and methods of delivering that functionality. You have to make sure that it's compatible otherwise you will always be trying to work around it. The Silk Test community of users is quite small. You need to find people who are… more»

What needs improvement?

The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.

What other advice do I have?

Overall it is a good tool to use. We just need to get somebody in our company that can use it to its fullest extent and uses it in a piecemeal fashion. In the next release, I would like to see easy integration into other tools like Tosca and ALD Suite and to become the master. And I know everybody says they can do it, but I would like to be the master of masters. The ultimate one. I will rate this… more»
