"Appium has easy interaction with mobile."
"It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."
"Obviously because of automation, it reduces manual testing efforts."
"It has good protocol coverage."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create performance test cases quickly and then execute them. It provides a lot of powerful features to do that very efficiently and effectively."
"The most valuable features of Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional are the separate module for scripting, execution analysis, and integration with a lot of new things pipeline areas. They keep updating their releases. Recently, they have released different versions, such as the professional and enterprise. They're coming up with new features which are good."
"What we like the most is that it integrates with UC."
"The stability of Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional is very high. It is the leading tool for stability."

"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."
"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 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."
"Licensing costs could be reduced."
"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."
"I would like to see better-licensing costs."
"The solution lacks some form of integration."
"The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."
"The flexibility could be improved."
