"The solution is very scalable."
"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."
"The cost is the most important factor in this tool."
"Integrates well with other products."
"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."
"The most valuable feature for UFT is the ability to test a desktop application."
"The most valuable features are the object repository."
"It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us."
"What I like most about Visual Studio Test Professional is the way people publish templates and publish integration."
"Easy to use and easily scalable."
"Customization is the most powerful feature of this product."
"The stability has always been very good."
"Visual Studio is highly powerful. It's probably the best software development tool on the market."
"The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable."
"I was satisfied with the support given by customer service."
"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."
"With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine."
"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure."
"The pricing could be improved."
"I have to keep the remote machine open while the tests are running, otherwise, it leads to instability."
"In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable."
"Sometimes Visual Studio is slow. It uses a lot of resources like memory and processing power. You should optimize the performance by only installing what you need on your machine. Don't install unnecessary things that will slow your machine."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line."
"Visual Studio Test Professional could improve by having better integration with external databases."
"The documentation is limited."
"There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less."
"It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently."
