The ability to quickly record and correlate a script very quickly with a lower learning curve. A complex LoadRunner script could take days to create, but the same script in NeoLoad could be created within hours. We had contractors coming in, and within months they were able to script and start contributing to the team very quickly due to the simplicity of this software.
NeoLoad has the ability to compare a test report to a previous run. We can easily compare to see if this new code base is performing better or on par with the previous code base.
How has it helped my organization?
We were able to create more scripts using NeoLoad within a short time frame. We increased the number of applications we support/test due do the quick scripting time. Now we have more time to do analysis and engineering work which is very important to us.
What needs improvement?
The ability to show transactions per second during the test run. Currently, we have to eyeball the TPS using the graph. NeoLoad 5.2 will have TPS reading after the test is completed but not during the test run.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
How are customer service and technical support?
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
We used LoadRunner before we switched over to NeoLoad. LoadRunner is a powerful tool, but the learning curve is very high. It would not be feasible for our team because we have a lot of newcomers and a lot of applications to support. NeoLoad costs a fraction of what Load Runner costs.
How was the initial setup?
Setup is very straightforward. Neotys also provides guidance and support, setting up the team servers and licenses.
What about the implementation team?
We did the installation in-house, with vendor support when needed.
What other advice do I have?
Identify what kind of testing your company needs (mobile, database, web, and so on) and find out if NeoLoad supports it.
