Modern testing practices have shifted dramatically in recent years. As open source tools such as Selenium have begun to be accepted and incorporated into the enterprise testing landscape, proprietary tools like HP’s QTP/UFT have begun to be transitioned out in many cases. While there are many benefits to using a tool like Selenium (for example, it's maximized when used as an automated testing tool, works with every browser, and plays nicely with all major computer languages and frameworks), the most compelling case to make the transition is the developer and QA time saved.
In this webinar, hear about how we generated an 80% execution time saving by migrating client’s test suite from QTP to Selenium.
The webinar will also answer following questions:
- How is Selenium different from QTP?
- Why do I need to migrate to Selenium?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the migration?
- How do I plan the migration?
- What challenges will I face during Migration?
A live Q&A will follow at the end of the presentation.
Note: This is not a “how to” or "technology session" on Selenium or QTP. This session is focused on giving you an understanding of whether Selenium is right for you or not.
QTP Expert and author of QuickTest Professional Unplugged
Topic is QTP/UFT vs Selenium but the list of questions seems to be about migrating from QTP/UFT to Selenium.
Will the Webinar cover the other way around (migrating from Selenium to UFT)?

The presenter is Sauce Labs, a selenium vendor. Most likely not.
I don't really see the reason to migrate from Selenium to UFT though. If you have Selenium tests already, they're running much cheaper, and faster than UFT. There is no gained advantage to moving to UFT unless you have an added requirement of testing native plugins.
I have been a QTP expert for most part of my career. Recently we migrated a project from QTP to Selenium after a small proof of concept. And we are much more happier with Selenium now. So this seminar is about that only. And David pointed our correctly, you will make a reverse switch only if you need to test native stuff. And today in my opinion lot of stuff is about testing Web and Mobile. And being in both the boats, this is not a Selenium biased Webinar, but I am mostly sharing why I felt to migrate to Selenium and how it helped us
Now even Tarun is on the Selenium boat. QTP is doomed.
The growing trend is moving towards lightweight open source libraries. They're easy to customize to your specific needs and scale much better and more cheaply than most commercial solutions. The new companies in the QA spaces are performing services that build on top of those, whether it's a cloud CI service like Cloud Bees, test reporting and bug management on the cloud like Jira, or providing test infrastructure like Sauce Labs.

If I were HP, I'd probably start breaking UFT up into smaller libraries and micro services, and tout the benefits of centralized Quality Management through Quality Center, and make it easy for any company to customize a centralized workflow on that. For example, turn native automation into a lightweight library like the White framework, then have other modules that can continuously execute tests in the background sandboxed inside a VM while the developer works, and report those results into Quality Center, where the buildmaster or head engineer can easily see everything going on at a glance.
Can you give us an insight post in the Selenium Forum about what you thought the Pros/Cons are of each tool? Where does Selenium fail where QTP Succeeds? And visa-versa.
I've signed up for the webinar and hope to hear from you soon!

On the another note...
So, are you going to give refunds to all those people who bought your books on QTP Descriptive Programming? (just kidding...)
I am looking forward to Selenium Unplugged, though there is already a number of selenium books out there. Not quite the same market opportunity.
I wonder how much HP is hurting in terms of income on HP QTP UFT. perhaps the little guys paying 8K a copy here and there are not worth while to tend to. Maybe to them a few hundred large companies paying a few million each is good enough. Probably not, but it seems that way sometimes.
Your business plan for HP sounds good to me.
