Pros
The major thing it has helped with is to reduce the workload on testing activities.The statistics that are available are very good.The scalability of the solution is quite good. You can easily expand the product if you need to.The feature I like most is the ease of reporting.The ability to develop scripts in Visual Studio, Visual Studio integration, is the most valuable feature.

This tool is very easy to use and I think that anyone can come in, having no experience with it, and within four to six months be comfortable with it.We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.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.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.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.

Cons
The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.Everything is very manual. It's up to us to find out exactly what the issues are.The solution has a lack of compatibility with newer technologies.The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.

I would like to see better integration with other testing tools.The solution needs to improve its simulation of mobile environments. Right now, that aspect is really lacking.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.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 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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and while I think that the price is quite reasonable I am not allowed to share those details.

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.
