NRG Global, anyone heard of them?
      #718821 - 10/26/12 10:46 AM

Hey all,

Full disclaimer, I just got hired at this company called NRG Global that makes testing software. However, it's curious to me because I previously worked in QA for a few years and never heard of NRG or its tools. I don't mean to advertise, rather on a personal note I'm trying to figure out the prospect of this company (and my job).

It seems like they want to be a QTP and LoadRunner alternative. All their stuff uses image recognition to interact with GUIs, they don't seem to touch the backend at all.

Among my friends and former colleagues, some people say it looks promising and others called it "aged tech." I want to see what more people think, because frankly, if there is no buzz/interest I'm probably gonna go job hunting again.

I never heard of them, just wondering why you would leave if people here have not heard of them. Are they a new company? They have an impressive list of customers.

Looks like any another ordinary consulting service organization.

I have used their software in couple instances where LoadRunner didn't want to cooperate. My expertise is in the Oracle application area. With all the acquisitions Oracle has done, the backend has become a Frankenstein of technologies. We spent 6 months trying to get Oracle retail POS application (formerly Retek) to work with LoadRunner. The ability to use images to control UI was very handy. For the Mercury Interactive purest, this may not be your cup of tea. But if it gets the job done, why not.

Hope this helps.
