I would recommend engaging Katalon's services to get started. They do render pretty good help on it. I would rate Katalon Studio an eight out of 10.

It should support all operating systems. Most of the developers use a Linux machine, but it doesn't support Linux. I would like an update from the Katalon team about why it is not working properly on a Linux machine. I would rate it a six out of 10. It is a good product, but it needs some improvements.

It is a mature product, and it is a good starting point for beginners. It is pretty much similar to the other tools in the market. I would rate Katalon Studio an eight out of 10. It is not perfect, but it is an excellent tool.

We are just end-users and use it according to our client's requirements. We don't have a specific business relationship with Katalon. Some customers use ALM, and we use Jira, due to the lower price. These help us with project management aspects. This solution isn't well known, as it might be in other countries. This solution is very useful for companies, such as banks or insurance organizations, that need something that can be used for commercial purposes. It's a good solution for enterprise-level companies. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. It's okay, however, if it offered more features to its customer base, it would be much better.

Once we developed a new solution, Katalon was no longer free, and we had to pay for all of the features. Katalon has provided me with a solution to the issues and limitations that I was experiencing. I have many limitations and issues with automating their application. I did not use the mobile features offered by Katalon Studio. I would recommend it for anyone who doesn't want to be involved in developing a lot. some people want to use some resources to automate the application of their data system. I think that if you have some knowledge of development and using Python in addition to Robot Framework, Framework is better. It allows them to do whatever they want. For those who do not have development knowledge, I would recommend Katalon Studio. I would rate Katalon Studio an eight out of ten.

With respect to the free version, it is a product that I would recommend. However, at the enterprise level, I would have to evaluate the support and see what they have to offer with the licensed version. Overall, this is a good tool but at this time, the support is something that I would like to see improved. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

We're using the solution as a customer and don't have any sort of relationship or contract with Katalon. The company gave us a demo to try that includes approximately seven or eight sessions of training to all 15 resources. However, Katalon also has lesson fees associated with the solution. That means we have to spend money, and we need to be strategic and careful now when considering which tool we need to invest in. That's why we are basically working on different tools, including UFT and TestComplete. We are working with the 4.0 and 5.0 versions, however versions 7.0 and 8.0 have also launched at this point. Katalon is a good tool if we are comparing it with a developer tool. It's the cheaper option too, however, is not as mature as compared to the other competitors. The lack of maturity may be why it's cheaper. If a company is looking to buy a user-friendly software testing tool while having to pay less money, Katalon may be the best option as compared to UFT or TestComplete. I'd rate the solution overall six out of ten.

Overall, it is a good tool in the market for test automation. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Products such as this one are a byproduct of artificial intelligence. It comes up with very nice code snippets that we can use, and it is good to see the industry moving forward in this aspect. The future is AI and Katalon is a part of that. When it comes to testing RESTful APIs, this is a good solution but in the alternative, Postman is out there. That is the one that we ultimately chose to implement. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

In looking at Katalon Studio and comparing it with Selenium, I think Katalon is better. The capture and replay functionality for sure sets Katalon ahead. As far as the API testing, we have not tried to explore that part. I have only heard that Katalon is very powerful in that capacity. Katalon is easier to work with and to integrate. Those are the main strengths and the differences we have found between the products. I would rate Katalon Studio as an eight-of-ten overall on a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best. It should be considered that we are not very demanding users. We have not put a lot of stress on the product in our testing. To get a nine or ten, if they could provide some capabilities with artificial intelligence to help to assist testing models that could help people to improve in finding the best-case scenarios. Version testing might be an option as well. But Katalon is much closer to getting ten points than Selenium.

It is a good product. I would recommend it because they are promoting that they will update it for free, for life. We have had issues with stability but it might be better with the licensed version. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We are using the cloud deployment model. I would recommend the tool. For a free solution, it's very good. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is considering this project to have some familiarity with Groovy and Java. If you don't like coding then it will not be the product for you. Otherwise, in our experience, it's a good product. It is well thought through and continues to improve. This solution semi-automatically updates to the latest version, so it is always up to date. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
