Global ERP Test Manager at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Feb 11 2019

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»

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

What is most valuable?

It's script-free, which is really important for our end users because we are usually dealing with colleagues who are not developers and who do not always have the technical background of developing… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to run our test phases faster. Once the scripts, the test cases, are ready and automated, not only are we able to check our systems or landscapes during the test phases, but we can… more»

What needs improvement?

There are a couple of small things, technically, that could be improved. Features we have asked for include single sign-on. It's a bigger project to make sure that our end users do not have to store… more»

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

We started with manual testing and then we started the test-automation initiative. We started with our internal corporate tool and then, as I mentioned earlier, we figured out that we could not cover… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you have done a market evaluation and have decided to go for Worksoft, my advice is to go for it. I would definitely recommend Worksoft Certify as a test automation tool. The feedback that I get… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

At the moment we are rolling out Execution Manager. At the time we decided to bring in Worksoft Certify, we looked into two other tools. The key difference was that Worksoft was script-free. That was… more»

What is most valuable?

We do a fair amount of end-to-end testing with the ability to create an end-to-end script, which cuts across all functional powers, from sales and distribution, manufacturing production planning… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Foremost, it has allowed us to test more in a shorter period of time with fewer people. We are able to test more cases and broaden our scope of testing. We've also been able to identify some issues in… more»

What needs improvement?

We struggle sometimes with the web side of things, although, I don't know if it is the product or the web application. When you get to the web, Worksoft needs to learn all the fields, and sometimes… more»

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

The initial investment is probably a little high. It was a little hard for me to sell, but it's a one shot deal and that's why it's so high. All we are doing now is paying annual maintenance, which we… more»

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

In the past, before automation, we could only do about 20 percent of the testing that we did on something like this. Now, we can broaden our scope, which is another advantage. Before, we would use an… more»

What other advice do I have?

Pick up some mentoring services from Worksoft to help you get started. You need an executive sponsor to help drive acceptance through the organization, so you're getting cooperation from the… more»

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»

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

Jul 08 2019

What is most valuable?

What needs improvement?

We went into this with the thought that we wanted to be able to hand this off to a business user, so the business user could develop their own test cases automatically… more»

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

The price is in line with everyone else's in the market. They are not cheaper nor more expensive than anyone else who was in our RFP. There is a cost involved to doing it… more»

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

Long ago, we used HPE QuickTest Professional (UFT). The reason that we had to get off it, because it was liked by our business people, was when we went to Hybris in 2015… more»

What other advice do I have?

There is an initial mountain to climb, where you have to get all your test cases in order and have the data ready. This will make it a much smoother setup when it comes to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked into TCS and Cognizant.

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

We have always been heavily reliant on manual testing and as a result, regression testing was not systematic and we could never think of implementing frequent weekly… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is a great product and we have not seen anything which cannot be automated till date in our application landscape. It is important to do sufficient technical… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SAP TAO and Micro Focus UFT. It was critical to identify a strategic tool which would cater to the testing requirements across our SAP and non-SAP application (including… more»
