"Obviously because of automation, it reduces manual testing efforts."
"It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."
"Appium has easy interaction with mobile."
"The solution can handle a huge amount of workloads, it's quite scalable."
"The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations."
"The most important feature for us is that it supports a lot of protocols because we support all of them, including HTTP, FTP, mainframe, and others."
"Paramterization and correlation are important features."
"It has good protocol coverage."
"What we like the most is that it integrates with UC."
"It is an advanced tool with multiple options available for the performance system."
"Graph monitoring is a valuable feature."
"We haven't been able to fully leverage Appium for multiple reasons. I think number one is just that the tests take a long time to run. We have had some issues around just the results themselves and how predictable they are, but those are not issues with Appium directly."
"If it had more facility for configuration it would be a spectacular solution."
"Stability is an area that needs some improvement."
"Licensing costs could be reduced."
"The flexibility could be improved."
"The initial start-up of Micro Focus LoadRunner could be improved. When we add 20 or 30 scripts, the refresh is completed one by one. I would like to be able to select all the script at one time, so it can be completed in a single click, reducing the time required."
"We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market."
"The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight."
"The technical support of Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional could improve. I had an issue with the licensing and their response time is slow. They can improve on this in the future."
"The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees"
"The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."
