Why Customers are Making the Switch

Many organizations are questioning whether HP UFT remains the best solution for their testing needs as they face expectations for 2-week agile sprints, CI integration for DevOps, and the highly orchestrated testing required for increasingly complex and interconnected architectures.


HPE UFT, the latest generation of the 1990s-era Mercury Astra QuickTest, was developed by Mercury, sold to HP in 2006 (as QTP), rebranded as UFT (Unified Functional Testing) in 2012, then spun off to Micro Focus in 2016. Across various ownership and name changes, one thing remained constant: reports of low overall test automation rates resulting from slow regression test execution, brittle tests, high false positives, and—most frequently—burdensome test maintenance.


With the HPE-Micro Focus acquisition occurring when many customers were already unsure if the platform would meet the needs of evolving business models, many are exploring a modern alternative.

Vantiv compared testing tools from its current vendor, HPE with those from Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Tricentis. Vantiv chose Tricentis because it was more efficient.

If you’re considering replacing HPE UFT/QTP, we encourage you to give Tricentis Tosca a try. Top analysts such as Gartner and Forrester rank Tricentis Tosca in the functional test automation “leader” category—with significantly higher strategy and roadmap scores than HPE, IBM, SmartBear and Micro Focus.

  • Reduce regression testing from weeks to minutes
  • Maximize reuse and maintainability with model-based test automation
  • Gain clear insight into the risk of your release candidates
  • Achieve sustainable automation with proven, market-leading technology

Reluctant to replace HPE because of all the time and effort you’ve invested in building massive HPE regression test suites? Tricentis enables enterprises to automatically migrate existing HPE tests to Tricentis Tosca, the functional testing platform that’s driving the market forward.

Risk Coverage

Tricentis helps clients maximize risk coverage to 90%+ while reducing their test case portfolio by 50%-80%. Risk coverage is reported from a business, technical, and compliance perspective. HP users commonly accumulate huge test suites with unknown risk coverage. Upon review, they discover that only ~30% of business risks are covered—and the vast majority of tests are redundant.

Unprecedented Test Automation Rates

Tricentis helps enterprises achieve 90%+ test automation rates—enabling them to deliver the fast and continuous feedback required for Agile & DevOps. Legacy testing platforms have failed to deliver on the test automation promise. The overall test automation average is 18%–and 8% for enterprises.

Trust

Tricentis test results provide an instant and accurate indicator of whether the release candidate has an acceptable level of business risk. This is ideal for CI and CD pipelines. HP’s high false positive rate erodes trust—in test results and the entire test automation initiative. Noisy test suites are unsuitable for automated quality gates.

Maintainability

Tricentis’ model-based test automation minimizes maintenance and maximizes reuse. Our tests are scriptless and business readable. HP’s brittle scripts require constant attention, with tedious maintenance and technical know-how. It’s easy for tests to fall out of sync with the AUT.

Execution Speed

Tricentis users cut regression testing time from weeks to minutes thanks to model-based test automation and test case optimization. HP users struggle with regression tests that take weeks to run—even in an era of 2-week scrums.

Innovation

Tricentis has risen to the Leaders quadrant in top analyst rankings—recognized for innovative technologies that deliver proven results in the field. HP’s solution is based on technology developed by Mercury in the 1990s. Given the Micro Focus acquisition, HP’s future is uncertain.
