Tricentis Tosca Review

Test case automation and maintenance has reduced the manpower and time needed for testing, although sometimes a scanning of the system under test lasts longer than it should.


Valuable Features

  • Complete or partial test automation
  • Methodology for reducing the number of test cases needed along with high risk coverage
  • Easy way to prioritize requirements
  • Ease of test case maintenance
  • It can be used by people with no previous programming knowledge
  • Agile

Improvements to My Organization

Test case automation and ease of test case maintenance through Tosca has reduced the manpower needed for testing, reducing the time needed for testing, and has thus saved money. Management of projects also got a lot easier.

Room for Improvement

  • They could improve scanning of the applications under test
  • Useful tips could be improved
  • Better and graeter number of examples in manuals
  • Reduced cost of licenses

Use of Solution

I've used it since March 2014.

Stability Issues

Sometimes it is a bit slow when the project is too big and too complex. If there are custom controls being used, sometimes a scanning of the system under test lasts longer than it should.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Medium to high. (always quick to response, but sometimes not that helpful).

Technical Support:

Medium to high. (always quick to response, but sometimes not that helpful).

Previous Solutions

We previously used HP Application Lifecycle Management for manual testing. We chose to switch to Tosca because of the test case automation and it offers easier management.

Initial Setup

Initial setup is pretty much straightforward, but the licenses need to be managed separately the after setup.

Implementation Team

We implement it through an in-house team.

ROI

ROI is high because of the market that is switching more and more to agile, automated testing, and our company also develops add-on for Tosca.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

There are four types of licenses available, and you should use one that best suits your resources and preconditions. Because of expensive licenses, if your company is new to the market, do not start a business using Tosca if you expect slow growth - use cheaper solutions instead, and switch to Tosca once you are overwhelmed with projects and work.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Yes, I agree that the newest Tosca provides incredibly improved scanning. Identification of controls with no unique id, is really useful and much more stable now, then it was before.
