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»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before we used Performance Center at all, we used LoadRunner (Corporate version, 50 licenses). But now we changed over almost entirely to Performance Center and we are phasing LoadRunner out. For a while, we were running both at the same… more»

What is most valuable?

The controller and analysis engine are a piece of cake, configuring the scenario and gathering results are the most important to me. From my 15 years experience, I measure that I spend only 5% of my time to script, other tasks are more consuming: understanding the business process, making the dataset relevant and reliable with workflow (with VTS for instance which is very great), finding how and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

For me, it's the best product for a performance team covering a large range of technologies and constraints.

What needs improvement?

Some features could sometimes disappear without reason. It's extremely recommended to take time to evaluates newer versions before upgrading.

It has improved our organizational performance. We are delivering fine performance results and performance recommendations using Performance Center.

* Monitoring tools which are available in Performance Center. * More real-time monitoring should be available for the system under test. * Dashboard creation should be implemented, so we can get the results in a desired format.

What do you think of Performance Center?

I use Performance Center for PC testing. It is mostly user-friendly and usable, though tough to maintain from the infrastructure side.  It is also good for reporting purposes, which would be most familiar for QC and UFT users.
