Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of Micro Focus UFT Developer is the flexibility to work with many different types of software.""It is a product that can meet regulations of the banking industry.""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 of the solution is the number of plugins for object recognition. The predefined libraries allow us to automate tasks.""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 recording feature is quite good as it helps us to find out how things are working.""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 initial setup isn't too difficult.""We can also create customized functions. For example, if something isn't supported in Tricentis Tosca Commander, we can create our own function to integrate it with Tosca Commander, so we can utilize it and integrate with the macros.""You can quickly build automated testing, manage it, and have it run on a regular basis to ensure that there are no issues.""As a codeless automation tool, the product offers a user-friendly experience without requiring extensive coding knowledge. Users can easily handle various applications, including web applications, SAP applications, Windows applications, and even Salesforce applications, without manual coding.""The reporting is really nice.""The mainframe testing and UI automation are the most valuable aspects of the solution.""It's a simple tool, particularly in terms of system testing. You can also convert and automate using Tricentis Tosca with ease.""What I find valuable is that Tricentis is always refining the test methodology. They listen to feedback from the analysts about what the testing tool should do, and then Tricentis always implements it. So all the necessary testing functions are already implemented in their tools."

Cons
"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.""With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine.""The support from Micro Focus needs a lot of improvement.""Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful.""The price of the solution could improve.""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.""The pricing could be improved.""I have to keep the remote machine open while the tests are running, otherwise, it leads to instability."

More OpenText UFT Developer Cons →

"Not being able to mask test data in relation to testing data management, in my opinion, is also a limitation.""Very difficult to get information about licensing costs.""ScratchBook execution needs to be improved as Tosca crashes multiple times.""There should be ease of data manipulation within automation test cases.""With regard to areas of improvement, report customization should be easier. It would be good if Tosca could provide standard reports for at least 20 variants. At present, there are only three to four variants. The mobile engine needs to be faster and easier to use; it is a bit cumbersome. Also, the object identification in the mobile engine needs improvement. I would like to see easy-to-use customizations for reports in the next release.""It requires some coding customization that requires expertise.""It can be quite expensive.""The product is not very stable when used with cloud storage. It is very hard to load the screen, making it difficult to use the tool in cloud storage."
