Neotys today announced a new release (6.5) for its NeoLoad solution, which integrates with widely-used testing tools and other toolchain elements across the entire application lifecycle.
This release includes enhanced support for load testing SAP applications, a tool for migrating LoadRunner scripts, enhancements to the NeoLoad Web UX, integration with Ranorex, and support for creating Jenkins “Pipelines as-Code”.
NeoLoad 6.5’s new capabilities results in faster test design and maintenance, better integration with popular testing ecosystem elements, and better collaboration for load testing data.
