CUSTOMER CHALLENGES

Use Case 1
Scrambling to find testing resources for performance testing

Performance testing is done at the end of the lifecycle Often done in an ad-hoc, unplanned manner You may not have access to testing solutions if not planned ahead Need an on-demand solution!

Use Case 2
Small organization / project does not have budget for testing software

Small organizations or projects have small testing budgets They may not be able to buy perpetual licenses for testing needs

They may buy open source or cheaper testing software that is inferior to LoadRunner and does not necessarily meet the needs Need an affordable solution!

Use Case 3
Enterprise tester needs to augment existing testing solution

Enterprise customer has LoadRunner or Performance Center in-house Tester needs to do some urgent tests, but testing resources are not available Tester needs to augment in-house testing solutions Need a flexible, expandable solution!

11

Use Case 4
Developers doing some performance testing

Customer following agile methodologies Developers do some initial unit performance testing / component testing

They need to do testing as soon as they are done writing code


They do not have the budget to buy testing solutions Need an on-demand, affordable, pay per use solution!
