Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Its scalability is good. It is useful for desktop applications, and it also uses OCR and does image recognition.""The features that we like the most are the developer interface and the ability to quickly develop and deploy tests.""The most valuable features of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence are bug hunting and OCR technology.""DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models, because we have done 95 percent of our development in functional, not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options.""Everything is happening on the layout or display that is used by the user. Eggplant prompts processes, like 'click here,' or 'look for this image.' Eggplant makes it possible for QA people and BAs, working in the actual display, to check if the software is providing the right images, the right text, and the right results. They don't have to go inside the code or to the TCP/IP layer. Everything is happening at the highest level.""It is easy to set up."

"The most valuable feature for UFT is the ability to test a desktop application.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""The solution is very scalable.""Integrates well with other products.""The most valuable feature of Micro Focus UFT Developer is the flexibility to work with many different types of software.""It is quite stable, and it has got very user-friendly features, which are important in terms of maintaining our scripts from a long-term perspective. It is very stable for desktop-based, UI-based, and mobile applications. Object repositories and other features are also quite good.""This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us."

Cons
"The language is too specific; it is just for Eggplant.""Its performance and stability could be better.""Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence could improve by lowering the price.""I would like to see standardized actions already built into Eggplant. For example, "wait eight seconds". That way, I wouldn't need to create it as an action. Right now, I have to program that wait and describe it as an action so that everybody knows it is an action that waits eight seconds... That way, somebody who is not familiar with programming processes like "if-else", or "for", or "while", would be able, from the first moment, and without programming, to put some easy-to-use, standardized, actions in place.""The IDE could be even more full-featured. Because I was a developer, I was very spoiled by either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio for shortcuts. For example, I was able to say "ctor" and hit Tab and it would create a template of a constructor for me... It would be great, when I want to create a new function, if there were shortcut commands like those that helped create all of the functions, or if there were shortcut features to do any of the complex plans.""If one area could be improved, it would be some of their documentation. In particular, some of their online help and user support documentation is a little bit out of date and could be revised and updated on a more frequent basis. Other than that, I haven't really found any issues or problems."

"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure.""Integration with other tools can become a costly exercise.""UFT Developer is good, but it requires high-level development skills. Scripting is something that everybody should know to be able to work with this product. Currently, it is very development intensive, and you need to know various scripting languages. It would be good if the development effort could be cut short, and it can be scriptless like Tosca. It will help in more adoption because not every team has people with a software engineering background. If it is scriptless, the analysts who wear multiple hats and come from different backgrounds can also use it in a friendly manner. It is also quite expensive.""I have to keep the remote machine open while the tests are running, otherwise, it leads to instability.""The pricing could be improved.""The price of the solution could improve.""With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Make a smart decision about the number of developer- and execution-only licenses you purchase to maximize your budget. We found that going heavier on execution-only licenses has been a way to reduce our costs and maximize our ability to benefit from the software."
  • "End-to-end testing isn't possible for us because of the licensing problems. It's very expensive, so we only have two development/execution licenses."
  • "It probably has a yearly license."
  • "This solution is expensive when compared to the market. However, the reason it is more expensive is because of its stability, high performance, and for its support of any technology."
  • More Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is cheap, but if you take the enterprise license, it is valid for both software items."
  • "The licensing is very expensive, so often, we don't have enough VMs to run all of our tests."
  • "Its cost is a bit high. From the licensing perspective, I am using a concurrent license. It is not a seed license. It is something that I can use in our network. It can also be used by other users."
  • "The price of the solution could be lowered. The cost is approximately $25 per year for a subscription-based license."

    Overview

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is a powerful and easy-to-use solution that gives users the ability to create and test any type of application. There is no type of technology that it cannot be used to test.

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence gives users the power to create products that will best meet the wants and needs of the end user. The solution’s artificial intelligence and machine learning features give users the ability to predict how a new application will impact the audience that receives it. Ultimately, it ensures that the product that is being tested will best meet the requirements of those for whom it is being created.

    Benefits of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence

    Some of the benefits of using Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence include:

    • Insight into the mindset of end users. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence tracks users as they use applications or websites. It then employs machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that figure out the most pressing needs of those who will use the applications that are being created. Users can set these needs into the system and automate the creation and execution of application tests.
    • Simplification of complex processes. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence’s single unified user interface makes it easier for users to initiate processes by enabling them to initiate all actions from a single location. Setting up and initiating a process does not require any prior knowledge of coding.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is an automated application testing and debugging tool that stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the way that it enables users to test applications and the way that it enables users who are not necessarily involved in coding tests to understand the testing processes. There is a large selection of tests that can be used to assess many different aspects of the applications that are being created. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence also makes it easy for users to follow the testing that their applications are subjected to.

    PeerSpot user Jon G., a quality assurance analyst at a transportation company, writes, “What I'm also really happy about - and perhaps this isn't technically about functional testing, but it's related to it - is that DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models. This is because we have done 95 percent of our development via functional testing and not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options. We are testing many mobile applications through Android Gateway, and that seems to be working great. We have not had any problems with web apps or Windows applications. We are running several scrum lines, and we've just implemented QA and, therefore, QA is important. What we're trying to do is get the ongoing suite of tests that look at things currently, and then it will be a built-on regression suite as we keep going and keep adding more and more tests. We want to improve quality before handing it off to our customers. If we have mainframe stuff, it's nothing that I've had to test or deal with.”

    A business analyst at a computer software company writes, “The digital twin tool is perfect for combining the non-technical and technical sides. Someone who is not actually in the code can understand the processes that are presented by the digital twin tool. I was introduced to it with a short introduction of about one and a half hours, and I was very surprised to see something like that because I had only been working with Eggplant programming and coding. With the digital twin tool I can program something and visualize it within a module, within a process. For us, an example of such a use case is creating a new patient.”
