Room for Improvement

At the moment, its a bit early for us to tell - does everything we need it to. HP is looking to expand to see what exactly it can be used for.

Use of Solution

We did a trial since it was launched.

Deployment Issues

No issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

We were only running a small set of numbers, but no issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's not something we've really had to worry about - we were able to crack it open and begin.

Technical Support:

The help files on the web are good and the video links/ guides are good.

Previous Solutions

We use LoadRunner extensively for Performance testing.

Initial Setup

Setup was straightforward.

Implementation Team

In-house implementation.


I can't calculate the ROI right now but I would assume a lot considering savings on infrastructure cost and license costs. It will still take some time to run a performance test but setup saves a lot of time.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluate a lot of testing tools. NeoLoad, LoadRunner, we prefer HP.

Other Advice

If you're looking at an application that can be seen on the WAN and using agile approach, then its a tool that should be recommended and used.
