IBM Cloud Developer Tools

It's hard to believe that a huge company as IBM would provide a service that's only reliable for non mission critical applications, but that's the truth. IBM has shown no idea on how to hold and manage it's Cloud Foundry version. Result of this, when it fails, it fails terribly, more than 6 hours of downtime due to IBM Cloud problems, more than 1 complete day failing to update our applications due to Continuous Delivery problems, and support didn't know when the problem was solved or what the cause was.I would only recommend IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery for non mission critical applications or simple proof of concepts. Continuous delivery doesn't seem to be IBM's strength, but only a must have because all "the big ones" have it.

If you currently have existing or planned to have appium tests, that Saucelabs is well suited as their real devices automation is unlimited. For us, we have not made the jump to appium yet as there is no functionality to record test[s], as stakeholders want evidence of test being run, so we have had to stay Selenium to be able to record test runs on virtual devices.

Pros

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

  • The commands are logical and easy to learn
  • The configuration files it expects are easy to use
  • Regular updates include frequently asked features

  • We have a strong partnership with our account team. They are always willing to help us understand how we are doing, what the opportunity areas are, and are there new tools and capabilities we can take advantage of.
  • They have been a big advocate for the quality work we are doing in our company. This changed some of the perception within our own organization and I'm grateful for that.
  • Analytics are awesome and always help us understand how we can do better.

Cons

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

  • More details of logs can be provided when the deployment build fails
  • Sometimes it becomes hard to debug the errors at deployment time
  • It is little bit expensive

  • Some of the documentation is old.
  • Some of the documentation is missing for pure beginners. There are companies that throw newbies to the wolves with testing and say, "Go do this thing."
  • "This thing" can't always be done with the enormity of the new toys that are available if those toys don't have "Step 1: Power on computer" kinds of tutorials.

It's a great platform to develop, run, test and deploy the applications easily. And it makes very easier and secure the implementation of continuous delivery process. For first time and experts also can use this service so easily. Great service provided by the IBM Cloud Continuous Service. There are more services that helps a lot to work on it. Thanks a lot.

It is an incredibly easy service to use for what its primary intention is. The only reason a point is deducted is because more feature enrichment can be done around the Sauce Connect Proxy utility and the Jenkins Sauce OnDemand plugin. User Account administration also needs more work, such as the addition of user groups, rather than a simple hierarchy of users.

Yes, Sauce labs is always there, and it is easy to troubleshoot when you are having any connectivity issue, they always keep you informed when they plan to perform any type of maintenance window on their side in advance, so you can plan and will not affect your current work. I do not recall any outage.

The execution of automated tests in Sauce Labs virtual machines is slightly slower than its main competition. Furthermore, the spin-up time of virtual machines (particularly device simulators or emulators) is significantly slower in our experience than its primary competition. The Sauce Connect Proxy further adds to performance decrease when used in our experience (around 10%-20% decrease when used), such that each call to the remote WebDriver instance in your test scripts can take upwards of 100-200 milliseconds.

In more than a year using the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery tool, I haven't had any major complaints or problems. However, in the last month, IBM suffered from a couple of problems through several of its services, and for a short period of time, I couldn't deploy successfully my projects. The problem was brief and was quickly fixed.

While initial response time is quick, the initial question is the only thing that happens fast.
That's a standard request like adding one more error log or make sure I use the latest version of libs.
All further cmmunication goes really slow.
I am not sure my requests reach proper addresses quick enough.
In 50% of cases I receive a response in a few months (in half of cases stating that the issue can't be addressed).
It's often would be enough just to know if the fix is on the roadmap, but slow responses don't allow any planning.

I am not sure if it's my company that makes getting Sauce Labs integrated into the team difficult or is it Sauce Labs. The process for getting Sauce Labs for a project is quite a tedious process and the information for using Sauce Labs initially is quite lacking. There is little support for getting started

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

Mainly, AWS offers 5G services which are futuristic. AWS has More products than IBM Cloud & it offers High Parallel Performance & Computing. Better global coverage than IBM Cloud & Rigid SLAs with credit compensationComing to Microsoft Azure, its user interface is very easy to understand. One can get it easily after a glance. Customer service & feedback is good. Azure is an ideal, cost-effective solution for periodic data migration, business continuity replication, and disaster recovery

We have also tested out Browser Stack, which at the time was more geared towards manual testing. Although it appeared to support more mobile devices/browsers, we also wanted something that can plugin in easily with our existing Selenium test scripts. Sauce Labs was definitely more geared towards our goals at the moment which were to automation functional/regression testing and build it into our release pipeline.

this is a great tool to run automation testing, you will have a broad option of browsers and mobile devices, I am giving an 8 only because the overall performance is kind of slow, specially with the mobile devices

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

  • Negative: Downtime of mission critical web applications
  • Negative: Inhability to update web application version due to platform problems
  • Negative: Slow deploy process, demanding developer's time on rethinking the compilation process (finally done not on IBM)

Sauce Labs

  • Monthly cost was a bit higher than expected, which had a slight negative impact
  • Immediate transparency into application performance on various mobile devices was a major positive impact
  • Ability to run tests on various versions as needed was a positive impact
