More Akamai CloudTest Pros »

You don't need to worry about licensing costs.""The solution offers a lot of plug-ins and a huge continuously developing community that is regularly offering new features and plug-ins.""API testing, Database Testing, and MQ testing can be done with ease.""The ease of use is the solution's most valuable feature. Also, the ability to easily create test cases is also very good. It's easy to just ramp up on the solution.""The most valuable feature for us is the available information on the forums and to be able to discuss and get answers from the people that are involved in using this tool.""JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages.""The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jenkins and the reporting."

Cons
"The test clip should be more user-friendly.""Akamai cloud test integration into our current CI/CD pipelines (i.e.) identify and resolve the issues during the sprint phase which helps in delivering an absolute product and reduces time to market/release."

More Akamai CloudTest Cons »

"The user interface is a little bit tricky.""The solution could use some sort of educational features to offer tips and hints to help users navigate it better. They should improve the manuals and help files.""The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available.""In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane.""There is some work to be done with the integration.""Considering the kinds of tests we are performing here, where we launch several tests at the same time as a batch request, JMeter is not the best tool for the job. Those kinds of things could be done easily with other tools, like T6.""Automation is difficult in JMeter.""The interface could be made more user-friendly."
