Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The load testing, reporting, and scripting features are all valuable features.
The solution is quite stable.
The initial setup and installation of the software were very easy and straightforward.
The Analysis feature makes it easy to analyze cross-data and we can pin to the focus period.
Very useful for finding out how the system responds to load, stress, and normal situations, as well as benchmarking with other industry competitors. It also improved our response time, memory delegation, and CPU delegation. In addition, we used LoadRunner to optimize our database and website.
It provides clients with an understanding of application and system performance.
LoadRunner is a very systematic tool for anyone to use. Even someone who is actually a first time user of LoadRunner can actually get a lot of benefit out of the tool.
Enables us to test most of the products and projects that we have across all the different technologies, without having to look at other tools.
The solution is script-less, so you don't need IT knowledge to use the solution in an operational way. This is the most valuable feature. It's also only one of two or three tools that can do good automation on SAP, and in my opinion, it's the best of those.
It has helped teams within our organization become more aware of the testing requirements in terms of risk and priority.
Compared to other tools we have been looking at, you don't have to be a programmer to operate it, though it helps. It also a product that can be used by business people.
We are satisfied with the support of Tricentis.
We have multiple applications, and it supports parallel execution. It has mobile automation.
The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive.
I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients.
Sometimes we are not be able to click on some of the buttons due to the screen mismatching and compatibility issues.
The price of this solution should be cheaper.
There is room for improvement of the pilot processing, the dump analysis, and forwarding results based on the dump analysis. We have a generator, root controller, different agents, and an analyzer, so all of these are very important when it comes to LoadRunner.
Support for Microsoft Dynamics needs improvement.
If they can make LoadRunner more comprehensive, it would really help.
We still have some issues with integration with things like SiteScope which, obviously, being another HPE product should be very straightforward, but there are always issues around that.
The solution should work with the Linux platform. Right now, it only runs on Windows.
Not being able to mask test data in relation to testing data management, in my opinion, is also a limitation.
Setup wasn't that straightforward; it was more complex. It all depends on the environment, because there were a lot of errors on our applications. Therefore, it wasn't an easy setup for us.
It needs better integration with JIRA.
I would like a better user interface.
Making it more stable would be good because we get around 90% stability.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't know the licensing cost, but I think that you would get a discount for normal usage. I think there are different yearly options for different types of usage. It is not only how many users, but also whether it is shareable or not and other criteria involved in each feature. There are additional fees for the users and hardware linked to the processing.
Tricentis Tosca may be relatively on the higher side in terms of pricing, but their sales rep can give pretty decent deals when asked.
We hired a consultant to figure out all the tools in our company and how they fit in our company before we purchased the solution.
