Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"There are several areas that are easily configurable.""The most valuable features are the recording and creating of virtual services."

More Broadcom Service Virtualization Pros →

"The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature.""It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly.""It's a very simple solution to use.""The solution scales well.""Using SoapUI's automation suites to run all our test cases saved us a lot of time. Running 300 test cases takes about three to four days. When you automate all that, it takes only two to three hours.""The interface is user-friendly.""One good feature is SoapUI's URL check, which allows you to check among the applications. I'm not just talking about the ones for Android. It has all kinds of multi-world tests that are really helpful.""The solution offers excellent integration capabilities."

Cons
"It is not a stable solution.""I would like to have more flexibility towards the mainframe virtualization and also in JDBC virtualization."

More Broadcom Service Virtualization Cons →

"The documentation needs to be improved because the interface is not easy for a first-time user.""Grouping of the cases is not possible in SoapUI, to my knowledge. When working with critical cases or the, we were not able to group them properly. We can definitely create a suite and add them there, but within a whole suite, we have to identify them, which was not easy.""There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users.""If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating.""It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there.""Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang.""SoapUI would benefit from some more customization abilities. It's a good interface, but it would be nice if they added the ability to build custom dashboards where the user can do their own bar graphs and pie charts.""Stability has been an issue for us. It needs to be looked at and made a bit better."

  • "I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
  • "My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years."
  • "The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
  • "We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member."
