    [k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]

    Visual Studio Test Professional is best for .NET and C# based development, which is what 90% of our developers and projects do. It is an integral part of the CI/CD pipeline for our custom made Enterprise resource planning tool. It also works very well with Azure providing seamless integration to way more functionality.

    • The user community of the Visual Studio Test product is weak. For instant problems with this product, it is necessary to quickly reach the source of the error.
    • Licence fees need to be more reasonable. License prices need to be reduced so that they can easily compete with free testing tools.

      Visual Studio Test Professional usability could be described as on the same level as other Visual Studio platform products. One very nice thing is the fact that usability aspects are improved with each new release. One example would be the test case navigation, which has been improved by introducing the keyboard shortcuts.

      Visual Studio Test Professional is backed up by the full support of the Microsoft Corporation. That means twenty-four/seven customer support by quality, highly-trained professionals who understand every possible issue that you have experienced before. They are nice, efficient, and highly professional. I recommend them.

      The visual Studio Test tool is faster than other tools. Since the development and testing processes are in one tool, it is more profitable in terms of cost. It is more inconvenient to write a test case in DevOps.

      • One of the positive ROIs of Visual Studios is the fact that it makes producing our work at a quick rate, things like Intellisense make our work get produced at a much higher rate which is good for our return of investment.
      • Testing by the developers has increased by 23%, we now take the time to actually test our product before we send it to our QA people.
      • I am not aware of any negative ROI aspects to our company that have been found.
