"The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.""It's not that popular on the cloud.""It would be good if we could look forward at the future technology needs we have. I would like to see Micro Focus provide more customer awareness around how LoadRunner can fulfill requirements with Big Data use cases, for example, where you do performance testing at the scale of data lakes... when it comes to technologies our company has yet to adopt, I would like to see an indication from Micro Focus of how one does performance testing and what kinds of challenges can we foresee. Those kinds of studies would really help us.""Third-party product integrations could be a little more slickly handled.""Micro Focus needs to improve in terms of support. With the same support plan but when the product was owned by HP, support was more responsive and better coordinated.""The TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved.""The reporting has room for improvement."
