Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Testing Suite

At my previous position at Florida State University, we had lots of applications that were heavily used by students, faculty and staff. There were certain periods of time when these applications experienced extremely high usage e.g. during the course enrollment, grades notifications and financial aid disbursement. We wanted to check the integrity of our systems during these high workloads and hence we used Oracle Application Testing suite for that purpose.
  • Automating integration testing based on easily configured scripts.
  • We found it very efficient for load testing our front facing student portal that experienced the highest traffic volumes.
  • The application is ideal for places that have already contracted with Oracle, however, OATS is much more expensive than other software available on the market.
  • The setup and configuration for OATS requires a lot of technical expertise and in depth knowledge.
  • We had always struggled with some of our mission critical applications not remaining performant under high volumes of client usage. OATS helped us identify possible bottlenecks and allowed us to devise a better game plan to deploy our resources to match the expanding needs.
We used Oracle Application Testing Suite in the software development environment for execution of automated testing suites. We found it very useful for load testing our applications from end to end and discovering potential bottlenecks in our implementations.
