Most Helpful Review
We can have multiple users execute tests independently on their own computers because the UFT scripts are stored online.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needs
By using QC we broke down silos (of teams), improved the organization of our tests, have a much better view of the testing status, and became much quicker in providing test results with document generation.
The enhanced dashboards capabilities are useful for senior management to view the progress of releases under the portfolio in one go and also drill down to the graphs.
By standardizing our template, we publish reports at the business unit level.
This solution is easy to use for everybody, including those who are not IT-educated.
The Model-Based Test Automation is the most valuable feature, where you can create reusable components. Even though we are using a scriptless automation tool, there still needs to be an understanding of how to create reusable components and how to keep refactoring and how to keep regression, the test scripts, at an okay level. We are coupling Tosca with some other risk-based testing tools, as well, but automation is primarily what we're using Tosca for, the scriptless, model-based technology which is driving automation for us.
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.
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.
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.
The BPT also known as Business Process Testing can sometimes be very time intensive and sometimes might not be very intuitive to someone who is not familiar with BPT.
We would like to have support for agile development.
I would like to be able to manage different projects in one repository or have better data exchange between repositories.
There have been some setbacks because of upgrades. While Tosca has been around for a while, Tricentis has catered to smaller clients and I don't think they have done such a large, at-scale transition or transformation before or worked with a company like ours, which is doing an enterprise-wide transformation. When we go to their customer advisory-board meetings, upgrades have been an issue. They have been working a lot to make upgrades seamless.
The main area where there is room for improvement is how they do upgrades. Going through this current upgrade, we were delayed a month because we are using a third-party tool. It's called Tosca Connect by Tasktop. When this latest upgrade broke that relationship between the two, it took Tricentis a month to come back with a workable solution... Their whole upgrade process needs to be better and cleaner, from an end-user standpoint.
The solution should work with the Linux platform. Right now, it only runs on Windows.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive.
I feel that the licenses are expensive.
It has several limitations in adapting its agility easily.
We have around 200 [concurrent] licenses and the cost around $1.4 million a year.
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.
