Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Testing Suite

We use Oracle Application Testing Suite to test our web applications across our whole organization. The IT department mainly uses the testing suite to load test our web applications and ensure our web applications are scaled properly and make sure their performance is as expected. The Oracle Application Testing Suite has automated our testing and saved many hours of manual testing time, allowing faster deployments of our web apps.
  • Cuts our firms test script creation time by 50%, cutting weeks from a project
  • Testing schedule
  • Reduces the amount of manual testing
  • Required for web app deployment
  • Allows you to focus on actual testing instead of spending extra time developing test scripts
  • Learning Oracles testing language "OpenScript" is a challenge, and for less technical people could be a problem
  • Sometimes the applications automatic updates cause more problems than they solve
  • The cost of the suite is higher than some competing applications
  • Oracle testing suite had a positive ROI immediately, as our web application downtimes were reduced dramatically after we could do automated regression and load testing.
  • The learning curve for OpenScript was steep for our team, and we had to spend a lot of work hours training staff and learning the product.
  • After users were trained properly, we were able to leverage the benefits of the suite immediately.
This was the 1st and only Testing Suite we have purchased or used. We did some research before we purchased, and generally all the reviews for the Oracle Testing Suite were good.
Oracle Application Testing Suite is really strong at scalability, performance and load testing of web applications. I found that one of its biggest weaknesses is reporting. I found that SAP reporting tools were much better for our needs. It isn't that the suite doesn't include reporting tools, they just didn't meet our particular needs.
