I would definitely recommend [Eggplant Performance] as an automation and testing software. Outside of these capabilities there are other tools that are better.

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's overall usability is extremely high quality. It is extremely functional and like all Microsoft products has a user interface that is well designed and is extremely user friendly. Any functionality which I looked for, I was able to either understand immediately or find a user guide online.

My team has always been able to troubleshoot with the help of customer support (and even schedule a virtual meeting!) in a timely manner. The support is provided immediately and with the necessary knowledge to answer/solve any questions/problems I or my team experience.

I have not used another tool exactly like this because Eggplant is awesome and we do not need another.

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.
