It is easily deployable and extendable, but it should start supporting the presentation layer

What is our primary use case?

It is specifically used for performance systems. It is used for identifying the areas where we need to improve the application bottlenecks and for load testing. We are using its latest version.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us to build robust application cater to the learning domain and identify bottleneck prior go live. It helped us refine our deployment strategy and capacity planning.

What is most valuable?

It is open source as well as relatively extendable. It allows us to extend and add additional functionality and features. Its deployment is also very easy.

What needs improvement?

It should start supporting the presentation layer. It currently provides performance testing specifically at the application and API level. It can be extended to the presentation layer, which includes mainly Angular and React frameworks. 

It should also be easy to use and easy to train people.
