Improvements to My Organization

This helps us to uncover some very high and critical performance-related defects, and keeping almost zero production issues related to the performance of applications since then.

Room for Improvement

Almost all the areas improve drastically with each version; however, the correlation of scripts, analysis and reporting can be further improved. Their technical support could also be improved. Recording of the latest applications is an area for continuous improvement.

Use of Solution

I've used it for the last 15 years, and for the last nine years at enterprise level.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Mercury support was very good compared to HP, however they are getting better day by day.

Initial Setup

It was straightforward initially with v8.1 and various FPs for 8.1. However it was very complex with v10. It was due to the way our security suites were designed that made it very complex. The design stage took one month, and implementation was two months, and we had one month dedicated support from offshore.

Implementation Team

It was with a mix of an in-house team and vendor support. The vendor team is necessary for the initial setup, and upgrades can be done in-house, but major upgrades need vendor support.

Other Solutions Considered

We carried out various PoCs for different market leading tool sets, and chose HP Performance Center because it offers better test suites for our enterprise tools, ease of integration, and it had more collaboration with our existing tool sets. Also, the technology, current & future demands for various applications, was better than the other opetions and they offered better support arrangements.

Other Advice

It's generally for enterprise level, however they now offer a SaaS version for smaller companies or clients.
