IBM Cloud Developer Tools is well suited for remote collaboration in the cloud, to swiftly build, deploy and maintain cloud-native applications at scale. IBM Cloud Developer Tools makes this possible by offering a free, lite, and paid tier to plan, budget, and execute your next application in the cloud. The team at IBM, professionalism and skill set are second to none.

HipTest is good and helpful to create and run functional regressions but it is more complicated to use this tool to create and run API testing scenarios (it does not mean it can not be done). This tool is definitively not appropriate for running performance testing scenarios.

  • Its price is quite high and this made it unsuitable for us as we cannot afford such high rates.

  • Its interface needs to be improved and easy even for the Newbies.

  • UX is not too obvious and easy (like generating a data table in a scenario or including a scenario in a test run) but you can get used to it relatively easy by playing around with the options, also the documentation is helpful.
  • To get extra functionalities you have to pay for them separately.

    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.

    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.

    The tool includes a basic but complete documentation that can be very helpful to get started using the tool. The UX sometimes does not feel very easy to understand but after some use you can get familiar without reading the documentation. The webinars are not very useful for using the tool, I have seen a couple of them and they are actually focused on promoting their HipTest product to new users instead of being useful and educational for current users.

    Alternatives Considered

    IBM

    There's not really a technical background on the decision of using IBM Cloud Continuous delivery. Our CTO assisted to a conference where IBM was promoting their services and offering a free tier. As in that instance the company was starting, every free tier offering was well received, but there was no further research. At the current time we are evaluating a platform change and waiting for GCP to install their server farm on our region.
