- Great User Interface and ease of checking all your artifacts of Testing. - Makes optimal use of Model-based Test practice in getting Object-references from the application. - Script-less, so less maintenance headache for non-technical users also. - Drag and drop functionality to create and re-use your Test Cases - Excellent re-use of Excel functionality for formulas and functions. - Conditions which let the test case branch off from the Template. Helps work out different scenario's for data. - Has been tried out on SAP, Oracle Apps and IBM COGNOS BI applications. With a few tweaks works well with these applications. - IF and LOOP statements introduced with the latest version. - Improved performance of Web Based Tests. WHILE LOOP and IF made better and more responsive with added error recovery options. - Intuitive based options available, along with a rudimentary record and play functionality. - Next version will even have the visualization tools required to see the interconnections between the TCD and the Test Cases, along with the workflow in the TCD and Tests. - New and improved visualization for multiple browsers and a totally new Wizard with TBox out of Box support has been added to the latest (v9.2) of TOSCA Commander. - Access to Business Intelligence (BI) features of comparing a DB to another one, also have been added as plugins. - Access to a Analytical Engine to view and get reports from the Test Runs.

The most valuable feature for us is the automatic creation of the test cases, based on the models. And the impact analyzer that shows you where your change is impacting your test cases, and the ability to export that to our TFS Instance. View full review »
Carrie Strickland says in a CA Agile Requirements Designer review
QA Group Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
* Now, we get automated test cases, where before we did not. It cuts out the construction time of testing, about 75%, is what we found. * It is a store that we keep all of our requirements in where, before projects would come in and we would not have a place where we keep the past requirements so there was always a fight between development, testing, and the business writers because they can't remember how functionality works. Now, there is a black and white copy of how the processes are flowing through the system, so there is not a fight anymore about what is happening and what is not happening. View full review »

The ability to create models/diagrams at multiple levels (nest/embed them) helps in taking models from high-level business requirements and building them into detailed requirements models and test models. Plus, it helps reuse lower level models. It also allows maintaining models at appropriate levels, even for very complex systems/solutions. The above features also help to avoid redundancy and use appropriate level models for different levels/phases of testing and/or communicating to different audiences. Integration with TDM, test data management tool, provides the ability to generate data or use identified (preset or parametrized) test data. It allows significant expansion of test coverage and flexibility, without creating new tests and needing to maintain them. Integration with automation is one of the reasons we started to consider moving to this tool from our original tool for implementing test modeling. ARD appears to have better integration with Selenium. It also has the ability to record scripts/flows using Selenium Builder and import them into ARD, which will then create and optimize a model based on that. Measuring test coverage helps in one of the most challenging tasks. It has logic that can help to select the right set of scenarios and know what coverage it will provide. Handling loops in models was one of the challenges that we came across in our previous tool. ARD seems to have better control and logic over handling loops in models. View full review »

Modeling how the application works, and then getting every use case we can test. Designing the right tests, what are the most critical tests we must do. View full review »

* The co-monitorial modeling. It lets us reduce the amount of scripts that we need to execute to get complete coverage. That is really important to us. * Traceability from requirements through test cases. View full review »

Bid Manager - Expert Continuous Testing at Sogeti UK
The solution is script-less, so you don't need IT knowledge to use the solution in an operational way. This is the most valuable feature. It's also only one of two or three tools that can do good automation on SAP, and in my opinion, it's the best of those. The test sheet is very good. There are algorithms that allow you to generate various test cases that guarantee maximum coverage. View full review »

Global QA Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable features are * Tosca BI * Tosca Commander. Tosca BI is important to make sure that our data integrity is in check and validated; to make sure our data is good. Our data is the number-one important driver for our company, so if that's not good, we have some big problems. Tosca Commander lets any test cases that are UI driven validate, and tests the UI and expected results. Also, the nice thing about the model's solution is that we're able to build out the modules within Tosca, to facilitate ease of maintaining the test cases. It allows one spot to do an update and that flows through all the test cases that need to be updated. View full review »

Senior Technical Automation Specialist at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
Risk-based testing, test optimization, and support for over one hundred technologies are some of the most important capabilities of the platform. Many may argue that the same can be achieved by other tools as well, but not all within the same platform. The ease of maintainability is also a differentiating factor. View full review »

The most important feature is the ability to customize it. Our company has many different needs, and creating a standard requires direct access to the database. It is very strong in this sense, with good performance. View full review »

CA ARD has some beautiful features which I haven't found anywhere else. For example, when designing or creating our test cases and doing scenarios, we are able to restrict our flows. If we take a data link between two processes, we can actually restrict it, so that in production, if our functionality breaks down, we can restrict that, and all the flows related to it will be removed from the test data set. That is something we can actually do from CA ARD. View full review »

In the case of a big epic, we are able to create it. Then, based on backlog creation, we will be able to create the user stories under that particular feature. Also, defects can be traced in the solution. View full review »

Compared to other tools we have been looking at, you don't have to be a programmer to operate it, though it helps. It also a product that can be used by business people. View full review »

I like the optimization, because it gives me an idea of the minimum number of test cases. It also gives me an idea of coverage. The integrations with other tools is very important for our continuous testing process. View full review »
