Worsoft Certify performance VS HP Load runner
can anybody help me with a comparative study between Worksoft Certify performance and HP Load runner tool in performance testing area for SAP applications.
Please provide the major pros and cons, need it ******ly .
Why don't you bring in both HP and Worksoft and have them compete for a solution on the same requirements for a performance test and then see what each brings to the table? If you pick a tool for a risk of this size without test driving it then you are likely doomed to pick the tool that is the poorest actual fit for your environment, your reporting and monitoring needs and your team's actual skills. This happens a lot with people picking up the software equivalent of a screwdriver to use the butt end to drive nails in a roof when they should have evaluated a nail gun.
Technology-wise, reading Worksoft's website, this is the execution of thousands of functional testing clients with some magic and oversight from worksoft's consulting organization. This puts this solution of running all full GUI clients at the state of the art of 1992-1994.
Hello, the issue of bringing both tools together is :
One HP load runner is completely chalked out of picture due to its expensive licensing, and for Worksoft Certify performance, i have raised a request to Worksoft Sales team for Pricing details.
Second: i went through Worksoft website , and must say its very appealing as per the features it is offering, i Have 2 options to choose from among the tools for SAP testing for my project - Worksoft Certify performance , MIcrofocus Silk Performer and IBM rational performance tester. Last one being a less user friendly option as i observed from my personal experience. Now comes to choose between Silk and Worksoft, can u suggest some thing related to this complete scenario.
Instead of measuring against the price of one tool to the other, measure against your financial risk in case of failure an the cost of a series of manual performance tests. With such a measurement you will find that any of the tools is a relative bargain when measured against risk and manual testing.
Also, there was a major....MAJOR....pricing change for HP LoadRunner in the December 2013 time frame. You should also be aware that you can lease LoadRunner on a monthly or quarterly basis. These two items together may make LoadRunner a very competitive offering with the other items you are considering given it's SAP integration for performance which doesn't mandate the use of GUI virtual users and it's deep diag capabilities on the SAP app server front.
You will not find accurate pricing for LoadRunner anywhere online. I state this as a former Mercury employee and a VAR of many years. Call HP or a VAR directly for your pricing. And, no matter which tool you choose do not skimp on the skills and rate for the resources to run it of you will have just as negative an ROI on the cheapest tool as you will have on the most expensive.
