Supports SAP functional testing and recognizes SAP objects in GUI mode
Pros and Cons
  • "A good automation tool that supports SAP functional testing."
  • "Could be more user-friendly on the installation and configuration side."

What is our primary use case?

We are customers of Silk Test and I'm the IT QA manager

What is most valuable?

This is a good automation tool that supports SAP functional testing. It recognizes SAP objects in the GUI mode which is a valuable feature. 

What needs improvement?

The initial setup is somewhat complex if you're deploying on-prem. It means we have to set up a database and application client machines, as well as Silk Meter which manages the licenses. It could be more user-friendly on the installation and configuration side.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for three years.

706,775 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable because it has a lot of other capabilities as well, which I haven't used. It is perfectly good for other web applications. On the Salesforce side, I do have a requirement but I am yet to explore how much Silk Test supports automating Salesforce. There are five people in my team who use this solution. 

How are customer service and support?

The technical support is very good. There is an online support portal available from Micro-Focus, the parent company. They are good and we get nice SLAs for any of the queries or incidents or any issues we face.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was somewhat complex. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When compared with other tools the licensing costs are reasonable and similar to solutions such as Micro-Focus and SAP's Solution Manager, as well as Worksoft which is another market leader in SAP automation. 

What other advice do I have?

The solution is user-friendly with respect to automation. A novice user can use this application with some basic training of a week or so. It doesn't take much more than that to learn and implement.

I rate the solution eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
