Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"It supports any number of features and has a lot of tutorials.""The stability is good.""The solution offers flexibility with its configurations.""They have good support documentation and when we have contacted them, they helped to guide us.""I really like the recording because when I use the JMeter the scripting a lot of recording it takes me a lot of time to get used to. The BlazeMeter the recording is quick."

More BlazeMeter Pros »

"The most valuable feature of ReadyAPI is that it is user-friendly.""It's easy to learn how to use it.""A single platform for functional testing, load testing security, and service actualization.""It has the ability to combine it with different CI/CD tools.""When you are working in sprints, you need to have continuous feedback. ReadyAPI definitely helps in automating very fast and rapidly. We have less coding, and we can more easily define our assertions. We don't use it for full-blown performance testing, but normally if you are doing your functional testing, it gives you the request and response time. Anybody who is doing functional testing can see what the request and response times are and raise a flag based upon their business affiliates, that is, whether it is meeting their affiliates. You can identify this during functional testing.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jira and the test management tools."

"In terms of improvement, I would like to have the ability to customize reports.""Having more options for customization would be helpful.""The reporting capabilities could be improved.""The should be some visibility into load testing. I'd like to capture items via snapshots.""Lacks an option to include additional users during a test run."

More BlazeMeter Cons »

"Version control does not work well.""The reporting is not very robust and needs to be improved.""The performance in some cases needs improvement. Sometimes it requires too many resources.""It doesn't have connectors to the NoSQL database. This is one of the things where they do not have a very solid strategy today. Other solutions have an in-built mechanism where I can directly and easily connect. An API is more around a user submitting a request on the frontend. It then hits the backend, puts the data, and responds back. If I am hitting MongoDB or NoSQL databases, I do not have ready-made inbuilt solutions in ReadyAPI that can easily help me in automating it faster. In our organization, we deal with NoSQL databases, and therefore, we need Groovy. We just cannot have a connector from ReadyAPI to do that. I have to write Groovy scripts. If you have themes that are predominantly using MongoDB, it leads to more maintenance and support activity because we are introducing more code into our commission. In terms of additional features, it can have cloud support. This is one of the things where we are getting into cloud support. We'll see how it works, but it is one of the doubts that we still have.""Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.""Lacking flexibility of adding more custom verification for security testing."

More BlazeMeter Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There are costs in addition to the licensing fee. For example, if you want to add the load testing you would pay more.""The cost of a license is probably around $1,000 to $2,000. Accounting is done by my leadership. I am more into implementations and making sure all things and processes are taken care of and the frameworks are maintained and managed."
