What is most valuable?

ALM centralizes everything. It allows you to work out how well you are doing project-wise because you see the number of scripts done, the number of tests run, and whether you have mapped all your requirements to it. You can produce metrics there fairly easily for your line management and higher. So, overall, it is better than people using Excel spreadsheets. Performance Center is good because it allows you to share resources, which wasn't happening with Load Runner. With Load Runner, everyone was very specific. I've just got these controllers and their mine and I might only be using them five percent of the time but I need them tomorrow. And I can’t allow anyone else to use them because it will disrupt my schedule. With... more»

What is most valuable?

As a tool, it's something that we can use in all aspects of performance testing, whether it's services, whether it's web, whether it's customized APIs, like Citrix. It's the tool for performance testing, and it's definitely the industry... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of having one tool it is helpful in terms of training. It has really great reporting features, so not only is it a good tool to do testing with, but when it comes to helping you produce good results that you can present up, it's an... more»

What needs improvement?

I think better or more integration with some of the monitoring tools that we're considering. We're looking to bring in maybe AppDynamics. I personally don't know the integrations but having good integration tools is going to help us in the... more»

What is most valuable?

High scalability. Web-based testing. The interface. If you're familiar with the days of using LoadRunner, when you had to have the 32-bit client, using a web-based client is fantastic. You can spin it up relatively quickly despite the fact... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In my current organization, I honestly don't know so much. But in my previous organization, when I was doing consulting, we helped huge amounts of customers prepare not to fail under scale. So whether you have a large amount of base driven... more»

What needs improvement?

Canned reports are always a challenge and a question with customers because customers want to see sexy reports. They want to be able to show something to the CIO. So I think the dashboards are one of the features I'd like to see most. I think... more»

What do you think of Performance Center?

Valuable Features: Performance Center is actually run by a performance engineering group so in every release you have a performance engineering phase that runs at the same time as UAT. That's pretty much used to ensure that we're going to hit our production stability, scalability, etc., when a product finally goes in. That is used in a phase gate, it's not continually run. That's one of the things we're eventually going to get to, that you continually run it. • Stability Issues: Our performance engineering team has feedback on Performance Center, so they don't utilize as many of the features as they should. They have it, part of it could be training, but they're not using it as much as they should. They use it, but they're not taking full advantage of all the features in it,...

What is most valuable?

Performance of load test applications, reliably, and with good reporting.

How has it helped my organization?

We have high confidence that the results are reliable. It's helped catch multiple bugs before they've gone to production. And we're able to more confidently release software into production, just more confidently release code.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see better reporting, ultimately, and analysis. I'd like to see the analysis more accurately pin-point where these issues are; a little more feedback immediately in terms of the anomalies that we're seeing during the testing, so... more»
