I would definitely recommend Buildkite for anyone who needs a decent CI solution for 50+ on AWS instance without paying huge amount for AWS Build and code deploy tools.

Best suited to smaller unit test or tests broken up, couple of forms at a time Not suited - larger regressions test involving multiple systems. - my main regression involving payments has been unsuccessful for the last 3 years despite all working fine separately and while being watched

  • Possibility of Jira integration for reporting
  • Relatively few (and usually easy to solve) git conflicts when working simultaneously

  • TestComplete could stand to have a simplified view for different types of users. For instance, as a manager/architecture guy, I'm not so interested in getting into the code and am more interested in file-based interactions.
  • TestComplete could use more integration with reporting for things like TeamCity to improve test status visibility.

We have bigger test automation pack using test complete at the same time we also think this is not good performing tool for large number of test automation scripts.

It is usable when you become accustomed to its quirks. Not using it for two months and then you need to re-learn the quirks for some features (but some quirks are so awful that they will never fade from your memory). So, when using it regularly, it is possible to be quite productive, if no big correction in name mapping is needed.

Some bugs were quickly resolved, but most UX quirks of the tool are just marked "as designed". No follow up for enhancement request.

Buildkite was easy to use and setup while comparing Circle CI or GitHub. Additionally Buildkite was very affordable for teams while comparing GitHub plans

TestComplete stacks up against them in terms of GUI and seamless performance. It records each and every step and action been performed in the application and produces a detailed report in a well-structured manner. It can connect and access seamlessly among various databases directly to speed up the testing process.
