We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"IBM Rational Functional Tester is very contextual.""Test automation is most valuable because it saves a lot of time."

More IBM Rational Functional Tester Pros →

"I like the recording function and Ranorex Spy.""Object identification is good.""This is a powerful, reliable and versatile all-around application testing suite.""The solution is intuitive and pretty self-sustaining. You don't need a lot of help with it in terms of setup or assistance.""I'm from a UFT background, so Ranorex Studio has a similar feel in terms of how it handles objects. It just felt familiar even though I'd never seen it before. However, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of UFT, but it's a pretty good start, and it's cost-effective."

Cons
"They need to do a complete revamp so that even a non-technical person can manage the tool.""The latest version has increased load time before testing can be run."

More IBM Rational Functional Tester Cons →

"For our purposes it requires integration with other products to get out the results in the format we want them. Adding this to the product could improve it.""The automation of the SAP application could perhaps be improved to make it much simpler.""I'd like to know their testing strategies and to know what they can automate and what they can't. It can become pretty frustrating if you're trying to automate something that changes on a monthly or weekly basis.""I would like to be able to customize the data grids. They are currently written in Visual Basic and we are unable to get down to the cell level without hard-code.""Part of the challenge is that Ranorex's support is over in Europe, so we can't get responses on the same day. If we had support in the United States that was a bit more timely, that would be helpful."

    Top Answer:We provide this solution and others like it to our customers. We have implemented IBM Rational Functional Tester for at least 10 to 15 customers between banking and telecom.
    Top Answer:I don't have those numbers, but it's under $10,000. I think it's around $6,000 or something like that. We have, I believe, four floating licenses and one console license, so it's a pretty small… more »
    Top Answer:The automation of the SAP application could perhaps be improved to make it much simpler. The way objects are identified and how easily they can be identified, are areas that have room for improvement.
