Tricentis Tosca Review

We're able to create reusable data classes when using our test cases, and non-technical testers can automate tests with access to information.

Valuable Features

We like the idea of reusable data classes when we are using our test cases. We work with a lot of data, and so being able to create reusable data classes is very helpful to us.

Improvements to My Organization

The primary driver for us is that it puts automation into the hands of non-technical testers. Previous programs, if you’re not a programmer, you can forget about it, but with TOSCA it’s easier to get information and start automating your own tests.

Room for Improvement

So far, all our issues have had to do with our unfamiliarity with the product.

Use of Solution

We are in a preparation phase – we haven’t seen everything yet. We purchased it about six or seven months ago, and started actively creating tests in the last six weeks.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's excellent, 9/10.

Technical Support:

It’s excellent, 9/10, as the response times have been quick and there haven’t been any problems.

Previous Solutions

Initial setup was straightforward. It took a little bit of juggling to get a central database set up as defaults to working in isolation, but other than that it was OK.

Initial Setup

We did it in-house.

Other Solutions Considered

TOSCA was recommended, so we didn’t look into anything else. Our software provider said it could support their solution so we went for it. We had looked into HP UFT and Smartbear. We had used HP UFT but are fading away from them.

Other Advice

Be prepared to change how you approach test automation – definitely a mindset shift. It's highly configurable so you want to make good use of that. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from Tricentis, they will get back to you. Have a good bank balance because it’s not cheap.
