HP’s Israel R&D team, which works on its Unified Functional Testing (UFT) — formerly known as QuickTest Professional (QTP) — and Business Process Testing (BPT) products at its Quality Center (QC), recently invited me to Israel..
"Integration of BPT as well as Service Test into QTP (giving rise to the name, UFT)"
That implies that QTP will become even more costly. I would guess that there are a lot of testing divisions that do not use QC. Integrating that is all fine, but hopefully it will not be a required purchase.
