Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is stability.""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 most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local.""The solution helps to accelerate software testing automation. It will help to reduce lead time and increase productivity and efficiency.""The most valuable feature of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.""There are many good things. Like it is intuitive and scripting was easy. Plus the availability of experienced resources in India due to its market leadership.""One aspect that I like about Micro Focus UFT Developer is the ability to integrate it into a testing framework as a library.""It is a product that can meet regulations of the banking industry."

"The solution is intuitive and pretty self-sustaining. You don't need a lot of help with it in terms of setup or assistance.""The most valuable feature of Ranorex Studio is the capture and replay tool. You don't need to do script testing. When you launch any application from Ranorex Studio it automatically captures these test case steps. The next time you can replay the tool the flow automatically happens again. For example, when you do the logging and all the activity will be captured by the tool, and re-execute the same step by using automatization.""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.""The solution is fast and includes built-in libraries that record and playback.""Support is very quick. You can write to them and on the same day, they will respond. This is one of the best features.""Easy integration with CI Tools like Jenkins, TFS, and TeamCity.""The most valuable feature of Ranorex Studio is its user-friendly interface.""The solutions's regression testing is very important for our company, as is the continuous integration process."

"It's now too heavy and they should be making it faster. We do an attempt at automatic regression testing. We schedule a test to start at a certain time. It takes a lot of time to download the resources and start UFT. Competitors in this area have tools that start faster and run the test faster. For example, if the test at our side will take 10 minutes, another tool will do that in one minute.""The support from Micro Focus needs a lot of improvement.""In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable.""It would be improved by adding a drag-and-drop interface to help alleviate the coding.""The pricing could be improved.""The product has shown no development over the past 10 or 15 years.""In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure.""The support for .NET Framework and Visual Studio in Micro Focus UFT Developer is currently limited. At present, only Visual Studio 2019 is supported, despite the release of a newer version (2022). Similarly, the tool only supports up to .NET Framework version 4.3.8, while there have been six newer versions released. This is an area that could be improved upon, particularly in the Windows environment."

"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.""The object detection functionality needs to be improved.""The solution's technical support team could be responsive.""When Ranorex is upgraded, the compatibility with other projects, in version control, in-house or on-premise, fails on occasion. However, overall, the stability is good.""Ranorex is used in Windows while other solutions, for example, Katalon Studio, are cross-platform. (But in my opinion, overall, Ranorex is better).""Binding to other sources is very good but the object recognition in .NET desktop applications often doesn't work.""Other OS Support, Ranorex Spy performance improvement (Especially for Silverlight controls).""One of the areas the service could be improved would be to have the training in Italian."
