What needs improvement?

One thing that always fails at our company is that after you have checked in an application then it usually crashes in some way. You get some strange error message. We found out you can open the test you have set up and usually, it works… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not quite sure about the exact pricing because I do not handle that part of the business, but I think the Performance Center is quite expensive. It is more expensive than LoadRunner, although I am not sure how many controllers you can… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently using 12.53 and we are trying to upgrade it to 12.63 but it looks like there's a problem with the upgrade. We would like to switch to take better advantage of some features that are currently difficult to work with. We used… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to someone considering this product is that they should try LoadRunner first before they start using Performance Center — especially if it is a small company. They need to know and be able to compare LoadRunner to… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools. The stability in some of the latest versions has not been ideal. They need to work to fix it so that it becomes reliably stable again. The cloud solution of LoadRunner is… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution needs to reduce licensing costs. Its main competition, for example, is free to use, so I'm sure it's rather difficult to compete with it on a cost level.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also use BlazeMeter. With LoadRunner, I use it with a paid tool, and since I am following the protocol, I need it to be easy to use. Whereas with BlazeMeter, we use it with JMeter. We need to use it sometimes if we want support. We need… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're partners with Micro Focus. I haven't found many products in this particular niche that have compared to JMeter and BlazeMeter tools. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I suggest other potential users review Micro Focus. If the… more»
