What is most valuable?

The ability to evaluate live applications in our production environment for unusual behavior and determine problem areas and solutions is the most valuable aspect of this… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us the opportunity to serve banking clients while conforming to industry regulations.

What needs improvement?

As far as things that can be improved, it is a good solution so I think I can only do a comparison. We also use QC/ALM (Application Lifecycle Management [Quality Center])… more»

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

I think the cost of UFT is too high and obviously expensive, especially if you consider that there are other even better products, in my opinion, that are open-source… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I switched from development to quality testing. Since that time, I used many products including UFT. We had some solutions in basic. After that, I used several products… more»

What other advice do I have?

I prefer other products like Selenium to UFT, but each product has its advantages. For example, in UFT we can test HTML protocol for the web applications and also desktop… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Because we need to properly support people in banking and follow regulations, we use UFT. It is really more of a political decision than a proper choice as to the products… more»

What is most valuable?

The test data management is very easy to use. It is a very valuable feature. The client application testing is relatively easy in UFT as well.

What needs improvement?

The parallel execution of the tests needs improvement. When we are running tests in LeanFT, there are some limitations in terms of running the same tests simultaneously across different browsers. If I'm running a test, let's say to log in, I should be able to execute it through IE, Microsoft Edge… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No other product has been able to provide continuous testing and to make a developer responsible for automation testing and all the tools needed except the LeanFT. Mainly, there was only one competitor, Selenium, which is open-source. Since it's open-source, it has its own limitations, which is why… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would recommend the solution. I don't think there is any substitute for LeanFT as of now. Some users may be charmed by Selenium because it is open-source, but there is a good part of that community which has gone through the Selenium curve and they know how… more»

What is most valuable?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

It's now too heavy and they should be making it faster. We do an attempt at automatic regression testing. We schedule a test to start at a certain time. It takes a lot of time to download the resources and start UFT. Competitors in this area have tools that start faster and run the test faster. For… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The reason we chose this solution is because it is the company-wide chosen solution. It integrates with other tools, such as ALM, a test management tool. We are also going to move up to Octane, but Octane also integrates with UFT. Octane also introduces the possibility of connecting to other tools… more»

What other advice do I have?

Testing is much more complicated than presented by the provider. They make it look like it's easy, but that's not the case. There is a lot of work put into it and you must also maintain the scripts. Sometimes people think that you don't have to maintain it, but scripts will not update themselves… more»

What is most valuable?

It's a complete pursuit and it's a logical pursuit working with HPE.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits. We're trying to maximize our automation testing, so it's a new authorization for us and we have more time to ... If we automate the test, we have more time to do something else.

What needs improvement?

We push one button and the tests are completely executed at once, so just have to analyze and say it's okay. It would be nice if this could be entirely automated. For the moment, it's people who have to perform this task.

What other advice do I have?

They connected 2C and UC so we can use 2C for the test and UC for information.
