Long journey of QTP/UFT
It is well known that QTP (QuickTest Professional) is not a new invention by HP. It was in place under the name of WinRunner from Mercury Interactive, before Hewlett Packard (HP) acquired it in 2006. Since inception in 1998 it had been one of the favourites of test automation engineers since its long journey of over a dozen versions beginning V5.5 to the last version V11.0.
In 2012 HP integrated QTP – QuickTest Professional (GUI testing tool) and ST – Service Test (API testing tool) into a single package and that was the time when journey of Unified Functional Testing 11.50 software began.
So is the everlasting craze for QTP certification as well. Undoubtedly QTP certification remains a golden feather in the cap of the every certified professional. This certification certainly leverages the career prospects of the testers to a great extent.
In late 2015 Hewlett Packard (HP) got a major business split with the formation of two organizations 1) HP Inc. and 2) HP Enterprise (HPE). In 2016 HPE sold its software division to Micro Focus.
Business of HP Inc. relates to personal computers and printers, while HP Enterprise (HPE) business covers software, storage and networking products. With this bifurcation, all automated testing tools like UFT, load testing tools like LoadRunner and Application Lifecycle Management tool (ALM) are under the domain of HP Enterprise (HPE).
