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

Pros
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 scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.I like the scripting and parameterization features.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.It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing.

The most valuable feature is the Selenium grid, which allows us to run tests in parallel.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 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 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 primary benefit is its cost and the ability to use the cloud.Our platform runs into several thousand screens and a few thousand test cases, something which would typically take months to test manually. As of today, the entire process takes a little over two days to run.

Cons
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.I would like to see support for auto-correlations.While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.It needs improvement with post-production.

I would like to see XPath made more reliable so that it can be used in all browsers.The solution does not offer up enough information in regards to personality testing.The solution's UI path needs to be modernized.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.It does require a programming skill set. I would like the product not to require a heavy programming skill set and be more user-friendly for someone without a programming background.In the beginning, we had issues with several test cases failing during regression. Over a period of time, we built our own framework around Selenium which helped us overcome of these issues.Improvement in Selenium's ability to identify and wait for the page/element to load would be a big plus. This would ensure that our failed test cases will drop by 60%.
