Micro Focus is proud to announce a series of new releases for our Functional Testing portfolio. The products are designed to help our customers test smarter, and achieve superior outcomes by delivering a high-quality, multi-platform experience for their users. Here’s a short roundup of the top features and enhancements across all of our UFT Family of Functional Testing products – UFT One, UFT Developer, UFT Mobile, and Service Virtualization.
Artificial Intelligence – The AI capabilities in UFT One offer testers a more natural way of testing than ever before. On top of the mobile app testing capabilities that were introduced in the previous release, the new 15.0.1 release extends the AI engine to web-based testing, accelerating the creation of test automation assets, increasing their resiliency, and reducing the maintenance effort needed to keep up with rapid application changes (Watch: How AI is revolutionizing Software Test Automation).
