Selecting the Right Functional Testing Solution

HP UFT TestComplete

Modern Scripting Languages


Works with only VBScript, an outdated and unsupported scripting language.


Works with JavaScript and Python, two modern and popular scripting languages, as well as VBScript, among others.

Ecosystem Friendly


Fits well with tools only in HP ecosystem, such as ALM/Quality Center leading to vendor lock-in. Linking to other third-party tools is cumbersum and costly.


Easy-to-use command line interface and REST API to work with any Continuous Integration system and Test Management Solution. Supports BDD out-of-the-box, integrates tightly with Jira via Zephyr, and has 100s of other native integrations.

API Testing


No clear vision for API testing. Current solution is very basic and not scalable.


TestComplete enables API testing through an integration with SoapUI, the most widely used API testing tool. Run both UI and API tests in one end-to-end workflow.

Innovative Roadmap


Unclear Roadmap and lack of focus after acquisition.


Continuously innovating to add valuable features that solve test automation problems with modern technology. Motivated product and engineering team with a clearn vision for the future.

Expert Support & Training


Insufficient guidance about how to implement product capabilities. No free trainings. Requires expensive professional services


Excellent one-on-one support free of charge. Extensive free, basic and advanced trainings. No need for external resources for training.

Cost Effective


Licensing System is complex and expensive. Expensive renewal rates, maintenance fees, and dedicated third-party consultant just add to costs.


Simple and modulare pricing structure. No more paying for features that you don't use or need. Buy what you need, when you need.
