What is most valuable?

It is fairly straightforward. We have some deep expertise after using it for five years. We have some people who know it now very well. This type of marginalization of the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has cut down on the amount of low level, grunt work that business analysts have to do and can free them up to do more critical thinking. Before we had test automation… more»

What needs improvement?

One feature that we have been asking for has been to treat tests as code and store the source code for tests in a configuration management tool. Right now, for version… more»

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

We ended up buying too many licenses. They were very good at selling it to us, and probably oversold it a little. We bought 45 licenses and have never used more than… more»

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

It was all manual. For convenience, we used Micro Focus ALM for tracking our manual tests. We still use that as our central hub for our test documentation. We weren't… more»

What other advice do I have?

The technical instrumentation was pretty straightforward. The tool does what we need it to do. The primary challenges that we have had with test automation have been… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at HPE UFT (the HPE automated testing tools) and SAP TAO (SAP's own internal test automation). The reason we pretty quickly went with Worksoft was primarily… more»

SAP Manager at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Mar 10 2019

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to maintain. With scripts, I can change one line and in one step. Whatever I want, I can do. I don't need to be an expert to use it. Being a manager without a whole lot of technical… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have a weekly release. A weekly release means every week that we have testing going on. The particular year where we started is called the asset management area. We could never run our Intuit… more»

What needs improvement?

I would expect more opportunities to automate Java. I would like it to analyze what we are not using. I would like to see the impact analysis integrated with the performance testing tool. We have… more»

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

We were previously using Micro Focus UFT. The tool was good, and we did not have a lot of problems with it. The only problem was SAP changes a lot of things every time. The frequent changes were… more»

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution already to my colleagues worldwide. We run this on seven different multiple applications. It starts from SAP, goes to the UI, comes back to SAP for violations, and then goes… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Panaya, but Panaya is not a desk automation tool. We are using Panaya for some of our impact analysis. We did try with Selenium and many other vendors. A lot of other tools have a small… more»

QA Manager Business Applications at a university with 10,001+ employees
Mar 10 2019

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features right now are the Capture capability and versioning. The Capture 2.0 has a lot of flexibility. The easy of use and ease of integration of Worksoft Certify are very good.

How has it helped my organization?

We do automation of both SAP and other applications: One of them is our new grants management system. Originally, they wanted to do everything manually. Now, they highly rely on us to do testing in very short periods. We do web UI testing… more»

What needs improvement?

We are looking for some enhancements on the Capture 2.0 tool. This would give us the ability to control it directly, like we could with Capture 1.0. Right now, Capture 2.0 doesn't really work for our Business Analysts. Because they don't… more»

What other advice do I have?

Properly staff the testing team before they attempt to do automation. Be aware that this will not be a one-time overnight process. We tried to automate everything in two months with eight people, and it was impossible. We have been using it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Micro Focus QuickTest Professional (QTP).
Real User
Automation Engineer at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Mar 12 2019

What is most valuable?

* Speed, as far as getting tests completed on time. * Its ease of use and the value of that. It is a lot easier to maintain test scripts on Worksoft Certify than on other testing tools that we have… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have already found some defects using the test automation. One of the bigger value-adds that we had was extracting data from our warning systems to be inputted into our new learning system. We… more»

What needs improvement?

We have had run ins with some bugs on Business Process Procedure (BPP) and Execution Manager. We also did upgrade Worksoft Certify recently to clear up some issues with server fogging.

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

We had and still use QuickTest Professional from Micro Focus a little bit, but we were approached back in 2008 about getting into Worksoft Certify. We went with Worksoft Certify because of its ease of… more»

What other advice do I have?

Worksoft generally seems to want to make sure you are successful at what you are trying to do. I haven't come across an employee from Worksoft that isn't willing to help. A lot of times you do get… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In 2008, we evaluated SAP TAO. The person who came in to do the proof on concept wasn't able to get the test scenario working at all. He had three and a half days to do it, and he couldn't do it. When… more»
Heather Whitfield
Real User
IT Program Manager at Applied Materials
Mar 12 2019

What is most valuable?

The ability to run multiple processes at the same time remotely or on a schedule. So, we have some testing that we do every day, and it is pretty much lights out. It is unmanned. We have some virtual… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The freshest example is some of the RPA-light activities that we have done. We have been able to save on a lot of manual work for some very highly skilled, expensive resources. This has been able to… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like more reporting in analytics. There is a lot of manual work for us as program managers and test managers which has to do with supporting our value statements. E.g., if there is some way… more»

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

Our initial goal was regression testing. It was really expensive. It was throwaway work. We always had to outsource it. It overlapped other test cycles within a project. So, all the functional… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend taking a slower, organic approach to automation. It is hard to insert ourselves into the projects. The functional resources, business resources, and process owners don't have a lot… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Micro Focus UFT, Selenium, SAP CBTA, and Worksoft. My main focus was an SAP automation solution, and Worksoft was really good in that space. They were an SAP partner, but I recognized… more»
