NeoLoad

NeoLoad is a very comprehensive tool if you are looking for a performance test tool for web applications and other applications using protocols like REST, SOAP, etc. The concepts are easy to understand and mostly clear. This enables you to develop very fast tests with a very good flexibility regarding the number of virtual users, the mixture of scripts, locations where load is generated or there is load variation. In consulting projects it is very helpful that project data and reports can be viewed by NeoLoad without the need of a license.

Visual Studio Test Professional

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.

Pros

NeoLoad

  • Building performance testing scripts is easy. NeoLoad builds the scripts for you by recording your session as you navigate through the application under test.
  • NeoLoad works with mobile applications using the same recording technique.
  • NeoLoad has modules that permit gathering OS metrics from the target host and correlating the data with the load testing results. The modules are agentless, meaning that there no need to deploy NeoLoad code modules on the host to gather these metrics.

Visual Studio Test Professional

  • Visual Studio Test Professional when paired with Azure DevOps is the best solution for Test Case Management when compared to other Testing tools we've used in the past.
  • Test Results and Artifacts are always available with full traceablility for audits.
  • Testing and Release Management are tied together as one continuous pipeline.

Cons

NeoLoad

  • Building Test Plans takes time. When the input fields of page changes it breaks the previous plan. The tool would be better if it had a way to migrate an existing plan and adapt to small changes.
  • Documentation is fair, but would be improved with more detailed screenshot by screenshot configuration changes rather than summation using words.

Visual Studio Test Professional

  • 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.

It is a boon in project development and testing and thus cuts away a lot of overhead. The performance of Visual Studio Test Professional is amazing, and you would never encounter any issue with stability or crashes. Installation is quite simple and can be easily done in-house. Code testing is the most valuable feature that one gets with Visual Studio Test Professional.

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.

Alternatives Considered

NeoLoad

As I have always mentioned, you do not need to be super technical in order to get your job done. You do not need to write your script.

Visual Studio Test Professional

Eclipse is great for Linux users, and it's considered more "lightweight" (less memory usage) in comparison to the "heavier" Visual Studio (more memory usage). Eclipse has a great auto-finish capability used when writing code. OutSystems is great to use when writing for mobile apps; however, the price of the product far exceeds any of the other benefits.

Return on Investment

NeoLoad

  • The ROI using Neoload has been positive, as we have been able to detect performance issues at te UAT phase and fix them before deploying changes to production environment.

Visual Studio Test Professional

  • 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.
