Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We don't have a big team of people that can watch the dials and check that everything is okay. We're doing a lot of the monitoring of our website and our product at the side of the desk. We need a solution that does a lot for us, and that's what Eggplant does.""We find the solution stable and scalable."

More Eggplant Performance Pros »

"I think the number one feature everybody likes is the capability to easily generate virtual users as well as the reporting.""We have a centralized delivery team and we are able to meet enterprise requirements, which include different types of protocols that are involved, including scripting. The technology supports that and enables us to have a wider range of testing. Enterprise-level testing is something that we are satisfied with.""This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market.""The most valuable part of the product is the way you can scale the basic testing easily.""The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter.""Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Is very user-friendly.""One of the most valuable features of this solution is recording and replaying, and the fact that there are multiple options available to do this."

Cons
"I'd like to see the ability to integrate the user experience through device forms like AWS device forms or source labs."

More Eggplant Performance Cons »

"The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.""Third-party product integrations could be a little more slickly handled.""Micro Focus needs to improve in terms of support. With the same support plan but when the product was owned by HP, support was more responsive and better coordinated.""It's not that popular on the cloud.""It would be good if we could look forward at the future technology needs we have. I would like to see Micro Focus provide more customer awareness around how LoadRunner can fulfill requirements with Big Data use cases, for example, where you do performance testing at the scale of data lakes... when it comes to technologies our company has yet to adopt, I would like to see an indication from Micro Focus of how one does performance testing and what kinds of challenges can we foresee. Those kinds of studies would really help us.""The reporting has room for improvement.""The TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Eggplant came out as the most competitive in terms of commercials (terms and conditions) which was positive. When we did the initial negotiations, Eggplant started at a price but they were open to negotiations and we did negotiate a discount. That was really important to us because it showed a level of commitment to us."

"I have not been directly involved in price negotiations but my understanding is that while the cost is a little bit high, it provides good value for the money.""They have a much more practical pricing model now.""The price is okay. You're able to buy it, as opposed to paying for a full year."
