I mentioned that during the last two years, a lot of the training we do at my business was impacted, just like a lot of companies. My biggest thing was getting everyone on the same page, and I feel some software does that better than others. With Cloudshare, It allowed me especially to see an accurate snapshot of what was going on with the learning portion of the work that we do by making it easy to digest what was going on in my workplace.

As stated, we do a LOT of API testing, the swaggerhub import makes it easy to add APIs. This is very well-suited, as well as easy management of the steps/cases/suites inside of ReadyAPI. The one thing I do wish ReadyAPI was better suited for is changes to data, we have a lot of test cases in ReadyAPI and if we make a change to how the backend data is structured, one-by-one adjustments need to be made to the steps. Less appropriate, UI testing.

  • Needs good documentation
  • Need to improve the performance of the tool
  • Setup is very complex and for such [a] commercial tool, it should easy and straightforward
  • Tool says it supports security testing but in reality, it is not at an extensive level.

The only reason this isn't a '10' is because of the cost. This product is definitely meant for organizations who are serious about making sure they invest in the full ecosystem of API design, development, maintenance. But there is a significant cost associated with this investment. and because of this cost (and the non-tangible output for executives), it is a difficult line-item to justify in this post-pandemic environment.

SoapUI allows us to combine multiple tests and adhere
to the sequence that they need to run in order to complete successfully.
It has an excellent GUI design and the reporting mechanism is also very
good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing

Soap UI has managed to continuously build on it's solid foundation and keep improving by each release. It is by far the most dependable and accurate testing tool out there of its kind. Available via connecting to VM's created as SoapUI test machines give access to it anytime, anywhere practically.

To be honest, we didnt had much issues with the support, as there is already plenty of online communities available for help. But if ever there were some minor issues with the membership or the certificates, the tech support was always quick and efficient enough to resolve the issue ASAP

I just felt that Azure had little to no help on the base tiers, whereas with Cloudshare, I felt a fuller "user experience" as it pertains to getting help when I and when my team needed it. I think that was the biggest and main thing in my opinion. In this software space, sometimes the little things can be the difference in picking one software over the other, and that basically was it for us!

ReadyAPI provides intuitive GUI capabilities compared to their own open source product. When compared to Postman, ReadyAPI also supports SOAP based services, which is a saver especially when integrating with legacy or other third party systems.

It has an excellent GUI design and the reporting mechanism is also very
good. It does consume a lot of memory though during concurrent testing. However, I have read that added monitoring tools have been added, which if so the 7 could possibly go to a 8 or 9.

Return on Investment
CloudShare
  • We save time as we can keep virtual classrooms always ready.
  • It may vary according to the usage scenario, but the user interface is comfortable. When you go into a little detail, you may not need counseling for initial use.
  • You can manage the jobs that you would do multiple times on other platforms at once from here.
  • All of these actually give you a profit. Time wasted, less application usage, less resource consumption, etc.

  • Very quick regression testing, hence having the testing results very soon, even the same day of deployment
  • for same above reason, it can save money for corporation (so no tedious, costly and erroneous manual testings)
  • The test reports are compatible with TestNG, so the corporation can integrate the reports in our Autamation frameworks such as Allure or Jira Zephyr
