What is most valuable?
- 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
How has it helped 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.
What needs 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
For how long have I used the solution?
I've used it since March 2014.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
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.
How are customer service and technical support?
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).
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
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.
How was the initial setup?
Initial setup is pretty much straightforward, but the licenses need to be managed separately the after setup.
What about the implementation team?
We implement it through an in-house team.
What was our 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.
What's my experience with 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.
