We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET.I think the pricing is quite fair because this solution provides a lot of functionalities, and is quite stable.The ability to do parallel development and testing reduces our costs for duplicating environments, improving the productivity of our developers, and bringing products faster to market.It is definitely scalable.We have been using it extensively for the shift left process and testing. It helps us to accelerate and virtualize services and assets that we don't have. It enables to test faster.We have had developers produce code later than we wanted to, but we've had some other stuff that was dependent on that. So what we were able to do was virtualize these assets and then go forward with our developer and not have to wait for these additional services to be available.We are able to quickly scale our requests. We have tested across thousands of requests. We have had no problems so far.You can have a lot of different people with different technologies use the tool, without any programming experience at all, all the way up to people who can program. And then, the more technical that you are, the more programming you have, the more you're able to customize the tool.

It has helped teams within our organization become more aware of the testing requirements in terms of risk and priority.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.We are satisfied with the support of Tricentis.We have multiple applications, and it supports parallel execution. It has mobile automation.Multiple scanning engines to automate many different applications.Object Identification Wizard.Image recognition: It has allowed us to automate a GUI section of our product which involves drawing different topologies.Good use in Agile workshops, where the person needs to conceptualize the tests before the developer provides the complete application interface.

Cons
UI should be more user friendly: better usability, more testing oriented.I would rate the tech support a nine out of ten. They need more knowledge about the connectivity to DevOps orchestration.Needs some additional lightweight, portable elements.​From a reporting perspective I think we would like to have a more user-friendly approach.I really want to see more of the "express" kind of model, where you get a little bit for free. I'd love to be able to see you be able to edit and author tests without having to be connected to a licensed server. And then, if you want to go and execute tests, then you go and connect to the server... I think it would unblock people to be able to do a lot more work from home or from remote places, where they can't really connect to the server.We had to implement an external service catalog. We put it in ServiceNow. I would like to see an integrated service catalog.DevTest is pretty massive. It's hard to tell what different parts of it can be used to do different things. They should modulize it more.CA actually releases a new version every year. We had issues with the upgrade prior to the latest one.

Not being able to mask test data in relation to testing data management, in my opinion, is also a limitation.Setup wasn't that straightforward; it was more complex. It all depends on the environment, because there were a lot of errors on our applications. Therefore, it wasn't an easy setup for us.It needs better integration with JIRA.I would like a better user interface.Making it more stable would be good because we get around 90% stability.The reporting function was lacking in usability and detail.Security, UI, and basic performance improvements could be done to the product to enhance its use.Running the regression – if multiple lists are executed at once or if a list contains 200+ tests, it’s a pain to stop the execution.

Tricentis Tosca may be relatively on the higher side in terms of pricing, but their sales rep can give pretty decent deals when asked.We hired a consultant to figure out all the tools in our company and how they fit in our company before we purchased the solution.The pricing is high, but altogether it offers you the ability to automate all sorts of applications: desktop, web, mobile, etc.Expensive, but for long-term projects, it is paying back.
