Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter.""I think the number one feature everybody likes is the capability to easily generate virtual users as well as the reporting.""The most valuable part of the product is the way you can scale the basic testing easily.""Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Is very user-friendly.""This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market.""One of the most valuable features of this solution is recording and replaying, and the fact that there are multiple options available to do this.""We have a centralized delivery team and we are able to meet enterprise requirements, which include different types of protocols that are involved, including scripting. The technology supports that and enables us to have a wider range of testing. Enterprise-level testing is something that we are satisfied with."

Cons
"The reporting has room for improvement.""Micro Focus needs to improve in terms of support. With the same support plan but when the product was owned by HP, support was more responsive and better coordinated.""The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.""The TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved.""It would be good if we could look forward at the future technology needs we have. I would like to see Micro Focus provide more customer awareness around how LoadRunner can fulfill requirements with Big Data use cases, for example, where you do performance testing at the scale of data lakes... when it comes to technologies our company has yet to adopt, I would like to see an indication from Micro Focus of how one does performance testing and what kinds of challenges can we foresee. Those kinds of studies would really help us.""Third-party product integrations could be a little more slickly handled.""It's not that popular on the cloud."

"The debugging capability should be improved.""Licensing costs could be reduced.""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using.""We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market.""The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight.""I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.""The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees""I would like to see better-licensing costs."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is okay. You're able to buy it, as opposed to paying for a full year.""I have not been directly involved in price negotiations but my understanding is that while the cost is a little bit high, it provides good value for the money.""They have a much more practical pricing model now."

"It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive.""The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""This is not a cheap product.""There is a licensing cost that is expensive.""LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product."
