Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The most valuable part of the product is the way you can scale the basic testing easily.""This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market.""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.""I think the number one feature everybody likes is the capability to easily generate virtual users as well as the reporting.""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."

"The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to.""The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good.""The stability is okay.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""The licensing cost is very less for NeoLoad. It is user-friendly and easy to understand because they have created so many useful functionalities. When I started working with this tool, we just had to do the initial assessment about whether this tool will be able to support our daily work or not. I could easily understand it. I didn't have to search Google or watch YouTube videos. In just 15 to 20 minutes, I was able to understand the tool."

Cons
"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 TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved.""It's not that popular on the cloud.""The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.""The reporting has room for improvement.""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."

"Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols.""LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue.""LoadRunner supports multiple protocols, whereas NeoLoad supports only three protocols. With NeoLoad, we can go for the SAP technology, web-based HTTP, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). If I have to simulate .NET application-based traffic, I won't be able to do that. So, protocol support is a limitation for NeoLoad. It should support more protocols.""Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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."

"Its licensing cost is very less.""Licensing for NeoLoad is subscription-based."
