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

"It helped in achieving the testing of on-premise applications, as well as cloud-based applications, without much difficulty.""NeoLoad is best tool for testing in production without making many changes to the script or solution.""I like the scripting and parameterization features.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""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.""The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good."

More Neotys NeoLoad Pros »

"The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment took about seven months.""You can build your own framework. I think that's the most powerful feature. You can connect with a lot of other tools that use frameworks, or keywords, etc. That helps make it a stronger solution.""The most valuable aspect of Selenium is that it gives you the flexibility to customize or write your own code, your own features, etc. It's not restricted by licensing.""The solution is very flexible; there are different ways of using it. It's open-source and has a lot of support on offer.""The most valuable feature is the Selenium grid, which allows us to run tests in parallel.""Ability to integrate with every other tool.""What I like the most about this product is that it gives us a lot of freedom to code anything, there is no restriction on the type of function you can do.""I like that it is a robust and free open source. There is a lot of community support available, and there are a lot of developers using them. There's good community support."

More Selenium HQ Pros »

"NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.""While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""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.""Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols.""Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue."

More Neotys NeoLoad Cons »

"Technical support isn't very good. Sometimes their recommendations were not very clear.""The solution is open-source, so everyone relies on the community to assist with troubleshooting and information sharing. If there's a complex issue no one has faced, it may take a while to solve the problem.""The solution's UI path needs to be modernized.""The solution does not offer up enough information in regards to personality testing.""I would like to see XPath made more reliable so that it can be used in all browsers.""Could have additional readability and abstraction.""Selenium is good when the team is really technical because Selenium does less built-in methods. If it came with more built-in and pre-built methods it would be even easier for less technical people to work with it. That's where I think the improvement can be.""There should be standardized frameworks to build automation."
