Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Testing Suite

The DBA team deploys this in advance of major upgrades of the database as well as E-Business Suite. It is not used across the entire organization as the DBA team is centralized at our headquarters. We use it to find any anomalies in new software we wish to deploy.


  • Load testing. We are able to simulate the load that production environments have within the testing environment. Without this capability, we would not be able to predict how the software will behave in production as we can never have sufficient users to test in this manner.
  • Functional and Regression testing is made much easier also. OAT has the ability to automate the key strokes of users so that we can perform more in-depth testing which we would never have the time or money to perform.
  • We are able to obtain testing scripts via this tool that we can review and enhance future deployments.


  • It takes a great deal of time to capture the data that we require for the tool to work. We do this via OEM.
  • The product requires patching like any other piece of Oracle software and so we have some maintenance overhead.
  • ROI is positive in that we save hours of time measured in contractor time and functional user time to test.
  • We can obtain scripts that automate very complex business transactions that we can review and edits. This is invaluable as we have a great deal of turnover and require a quick means of obtaining a baseline.
  • Reduction on of manual testing. Because of the automated features, we do not have to test for months prior to deployment. Easily has cut our testing time in half.
We buy all things ORACLE in order to have a consistent experience and reduce the training and learning curve. We believe in ORACLE Corporation's commitment to quality and innovation and would not consider any other products. We are a large company and saving a few dollars on licensing is penny wise but pound foolish as we cannot afford unplanned downtime.
It is extremely well suited for database upgrade testing as well as major upgrades of the E-business suite applications. It is less suited for performing this for minor patching efforts.
