great program for the office

What do you like best?

very easy to understand! the entire company got on board quickly. We manage over 20+ projects at a time, so we rely heavily on systems like xstudio to help complete delivery.

What do you dislike?

graphics on program are a little old school compared to other programs we've used

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you manage tons of projects at once, I would recomend using this. It's pretty easy to use (and they offer help if you need it). It's similiar to other sites such as smartsheets, so if you've used those then you will be set!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

helps to keep projects on track and on schedule. benefits are that it automatically tracks schedules for us and updates as the schedule changes

Use of Xstudio product as an alternative to IBRM Rational Quality Manager to drive selenium scripts

What do you like best?

Firstly some business context

Our organization used IBM Rational Test Manager and IBM Rational Functional Tester

We improved the IBM Rational functional tester to integrate and use selenium instead of IBM's proprietary object recognition technology. At this stage we continued to use IBM Rational test manager to drive our selenium scripts

To go to the next step and remove link with IBM Rational test manager and thus save money, we tried X studio

It was an excellent fit and we are up and running in less than 3 days

The product designers had a direct insight to our new feature requests and sometimes when we asked for something it was given within 2 days in a new build (not just to us but for the whole community)

Best of all the paid version was just 8 USD per license and even the free one had a simple advertisement banner (that hardly hurts and hence was not very distracting)

This was an amazing change compared to how IBM Rational would charge several thousand dollars for support that hardly matched Xstudio levels

What do you dislike?

There were some good features of IBM Rational test manager and the way we organized our tests that we got too used to.

It took a slight tuning for Xstudio to fit into our specific scenario

While not bad at all, XStudio can continue to try to adapt to a very light weight easy to use and change method of organizing test cases in folders, and associating them with builds or sprints.

The specifications of what is optimal are difficult o gather as every team has its own needs. So coming up with a solution that can fit all is extremely difficult but still because you asked for what can be improved I am telling this

Recommendations to others considering the product

Invest to meet with the founders in the very beginning of your journey

The founders are very passionate about the product and can help you a lot

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cost savings

IBM Rational Test suite cost us 100,000 USD per seat (floating with support)

Xstudio cost us 8 USD per seat and Selenium was free

We had 50 active users of Rational software

So our savings were (100000-8)*50 = 5 Million a year
