I would like to see the stability improve. We have experienced some crashes on our devices. The configuration could be simplified. I would want to see features included that make deployment easier.

For our needs, the issue is that there is no way to take an existing system out of the testing environment, clone it with everything that it's currently set up on, and put it into production without having to create a whole new one. It lacks the ability to clone the environment so you have your test environment set up in the way it's going to be used in production. Rather than create a whole other environment, the idea would be to clone that capability onto another system and not have to start over from scratch. You have everything working the way you want it to and you just want to move it over to the production side of things.

I think that performance could be improved by making it more effective and less resource consuming. It's a little clunky.

The price should be reduced. Visio stencils must be made available for technical documentation.
