Appium

Appium is well suited when you need to write automation tests with low costs. It's very simple to start up, configure and run. It doesn't depend on the application platform and is portable to many programming languages like Java, Ruby, etc. If you have a team of developers and SDETs and you need to increase the code coverage simply and fast, Appium is your best choice.

Telerik

Developing LOB applications to support businesses in enterprises. The enterprise LOB application is the natural ground for Telerik products. There is also room for it on the mobile market, especially when we are talking about Controls for Xamarin.On the other end, "normal" websites that need to be filled with very polished, eye-catching designs, are not a good place for Telerik products.

Pros

  • Offers an excellent user interface application to assist in designing cases by previewing app screens and retrieving names of the elements you intend on interacting with
  • Provides a generally accessible documentation suite on the web, which you will reference quite often
  • Handles the connection between Appium's server and Xcode's tools during execution well

  • Support to the developers and community growing
  • User controls for software development for Windows and web
  • Extensive (although not as in depth as it should be) documentation

Cons

  • It should provide reliable & promising executions every time, without any interruptions
  • Avoid any synchronization issues
  • Supporting to Windows mobile applications also in future.

  • The documentation articles. There should definitely be more "real life" examples.
  • On some products, they should pay more attention on how the end users are going to actually use them.

Alternatives Considered

Appium is one of the most valuable fully featured open-source tools with good support for iOS and Android mobile automation which cannot be matched even by enterprise tools.

Rich UI, lot of ready to use themes/css. ASP.NET has very limited capabilities compare than telerik.

Return on Investment

  • For cost of ownership, the increase is positive times infinity, as it's free to install and use
  • Lead time for suite development can be a negative, if not planned for during sprint planning
  • Using Appium to execute tests in parallel across a cloud solution can improve CI/CD cycles by 100's of a percent

  • Telerik products have, in general, cut development times of several applications and systems. That is the main point.
