While we are performance testing the engineering key, we need to come up with load strategies to commence the test. We'll help to monitor the test, and afterward, we'll help to make all the outcomes, and if they are new, we'll do lots and lots of interpretation and analysis across various servers, to look at response times, and impact. For example, whatever the observations we had during the test, we need to implement it. We'll have to help to catch what exactly is the issues were, and we'll help to see how they can be reduced. Everything is very manual. It's up to us to find out exactly what the issues are. The solution needs better monitoring, especially of CPU.

The solution has a lack of compatibility with newer technologies. When tests are recorded on to Silk Central, there is a bit of a lack of clarity in terms of what needs to be fed into Silk Central and how the test cases and reports are all managed. The solution should make it easier to schedule our test cases during out of office hours. We want the solution to allow us to do more of API level integrations.

The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.

The integration of the object library can be improved. It's a bit clunky. It also has some commands that are difficult to use sometimes. We work around its deficiencies and forget that it's a deficiency. They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.

The product has a lot of features, but many of the clients do not know how it can improve their productivity. Information on how these features can be used would be helpful. The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.
