Quotes From Members Comparing SmartBear TestComplete vs Tricentis Tosca

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Test items, project variables helps in managing automation suite and scheduling execution.Selenium integration.It's cross platform automation capabilities specially ranging across web, UNIX (via putty), and other systems.The ability to run a whole suite of tests automatically (which we did overnight).TestComplete fits almost perfectly with a large amount of stacks, such as Delphi, C#, Java and web applications.Runs in different remote machines. We have multiple versions of the software being tested.I like the cross browser compatibility. It saves a lot of time re-writing scripts to accommodate different browsers.It allows us to test both desktop and web applications.

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.The tool can be handled without any knowledge in parameterisation, especially the TestCaseDesign which makes the tool mighty and stable.The model-based scriptless automation is the most valuable feature because it needs less maintenance as compared to script-based automation.This tool has test data management capability along with test management.With one click, it will scan all the elements on the screen, so that the user can select the required elements for automation tests.

Cons
Increased performance with less memory and CPU usage.Error handling features in the tool are a little limited.The code editor, though following eclipse-style, is still a work in progress and gives a very poorly formatted code once viewed via other editing tools.We were testing handheld barcode scanners running WindowsCE with many menus of warehouse functions, and our biggest problem was the timing between input and responses.TestComplete gives support to do requests to a SOAP web service but has no support to do HTTP requests on Restful services.Product is not stable enough and it crashes often.The way objects are added and used when utilizing descriptive programming could be improved. It is a little unwieldy, compared to UFT.It is very hard to read the test log generated by TestComplete Executor if the log file is very big. TestComplete Executor is a small tool for just running the TestComplete test framework (not for developing).

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.Might have a learning curve, as it does not follow the traditional Record-Play functionality, but tests have to be built from requirements or Agile story cards.The Test Management options are still weak - improvement is outlined, but not yet visible. IParallel execution is not yet implemented for Tosca. This means you can't execute the same test case on multiple machines remotely.ScratchBook execution needs to be improved as Tosca crashes multiple times.They need to improve on the reports after the execution of automation tests, since all the current organizations are looking for detailed graphical reports.

Pricing and Cost Advice
TestComplete now have come up with three modules (Web, Desktop & Mobile), so based on the type of product for automation, it is adequate to purchase the required module.Buy modules on demand. If you have a four-person team and they will each automate tests only 25% of the time, it's better to buy a floating licence and share the tool during the work day.The price is less, compared to other products, such as QTP.My advice so far, is that while it’s not quite as powerful and easy to use as UFT, its price tag more than makes up for it.The product is becoming more and more expensive.

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.​It is an expensive tool compared to other test automation tools. It has a lot of advantages over other tools.
