We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"In the case of the virtualization of TCP/IP protocols for third-party terminal insurance, there was a device terminal, which was interacting with the application via the TCP/IP protocol. Most of the tools don't support that, but we were able to achieve it using Broadcom Service Virtualization.""The most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services.""There are several areas that are easily configurable."

"The interface is fine and there is nothing else to add in terms of enhancement.""It helps in identifying defects earlier. With manual testing, that 15-day timeline meant there were times when we would find defects on the 11th or 12th day of the cycle, but with automation we are able to run the complete suite within a day and we are able to find the failures. It helps us to provide early feedback.""The stop automation is a great feature.""The inside object repository is nice. We can use that and learn it through the ALM connection. That's a good feature. The reporting and smart identification features are also excellent.""The initial setup is relatively easy.""I find UFT One to be very good for thick clients, which are non-browser applications.""The scalability of Micro Focus UFT One is good.""The solution has good out-of-the-box protocols."

Cons
"The cost is an area that needs improvement. There are a couple of other tools which provide support for performance testing with the base version itself, but Broadcom needs a separate component to support virtualization for performance testing. This is a costly component.""It is not a stable solution.""I would like to have more flexibility towards the mainframe virtualization and also in JDBC virtualization."

More Broadcom Service Virtualization Cons →

"The overall design needs an entire overhaul. We prefer software designed to ensure the package isn't too loaded.""UFT has a recording feature. They could make the recording feature window bigger for whatever activities that I am recording. It would improve the user experience if they could create a separate floating panel (or have it automatically show on the side) once the recording starts.""I'd like to see test case-related reports included in the solution.""Technical support could be improved.""We used to run it as a test suite. Micro Focus provides that in terms of a test management tool as ALM, but when we think of integrating with a distributed version control system, like Jenkins, there isn't much integration available. That means we need to make use of external solutions to make it work.""Sometimes, the results' file size can be intense. I wish it was a little more compact.""The scripting language could be improved. They're currently using Visual Basic, but I think that people need something more advanced, like Python or Java.""They need to reduce the cost because it is pretty high. It's approximately $3,000 per user."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There are additional fees for advanced-level technical support."
  • "I don't have the exact dollar amount, but we have spent close to $1,000,000 for a three-year agreement, for an enterprise level."
  • "There is a yearly licensing cost, and I would give it a four out of five."
  • More Broadcom Service Virtualization Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price is only $3,000. I don't know how many QA analysts you would have in any given company. Probably no more than five or 10. So if it's a large corporation, it can easily afford $15,000 to $25,000. I don't see that being an issue."
  • "The way the pricing model works is that you pay a whole boatload year one. Then, every year after, it is around half or less. Because instead of paying for the new product, you are just paying for the support and maintenance of it. That is probably one of the biggest things that I hear from most people, even at conferences, "Yeah, I would love to use UFT One, but we don't have a budget for it.""
  • "Compared to other tools in the market, UFT One is very competitive. The recent Covid pandemic situation also hit customer budgets significantly, so Micro Focus offered some discounted prices, which is definitely competitive."
  • "The pricing fee is good. If someone makes use of the solution once a day for a half hour then the fee will be more expensive. For continuous use and application of the solution to different use cases, the fee is average."
  • "The price is one aspect that could be improved."
  • "HPE recently extended the demo license period from 30 days to 60 days which was a very wise and popular decision to give potential customers more time to install it and try it for free. Even if your company has a salesperson come in and demo UFT, I would highly encourage at least one of your developers or automation engineers to download and install it to explore for themselves the functionality and features included during the demo trial period."

    Overview

    CA Service Virtualization acts as a catalyst for DevOps by simulating constrained or unavailable systems across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). This allows developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel to accelerate app delivery, as well as to “shift-left” the app testing to improve application quality. CA Service Virtualization was previously known as LISA, the product from the ITKO acquisition.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Chris T., Test Automation Architect at Independent Health, relates that “testers have been able to free up their time: instead of doing mundane, repetitive tasks, they shift them off to automation.”

    Tansu A., Test Automation Consultant at a tech services company, feels UFT One “enables us to quickly obtain detailed product behavior information.”

    UFT One “helped us notably reduce manual testing efforts and pass the savings along to our client,” says a user who is a Test Analyst at a tech services company.
