How has it helped my organization?

We're currently going through an upgrade of a system here, in-house, and Tosca has allowed us to do more testing compared to what we were previously able to do. In the… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We paid upfront for the licenses and maintenance and we pay the maintenance fees as we move forward, yearly. There are no additional costs that I am aware of.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Selenium before Tosca. One of the reasons we decided to look at other tools was that, with Selenium, the maintenance of the scripts started becoming higher. The… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you're going to have somebody come in and help set up, don't go with a third-party vendor, but have Tricentis consultants come in, do training, and help set up. It's… more»

Tricentis Tosca may be relatively on the higher side in terms of pricing, but their sales rep can give pretty decent deals when asked.

I was using Selenium WebDriver a few years ago. I switched to Tricentis Tosca because of its methodology and support for more than one hundred technologies.

What other advice do I have?

For organizations who want to aim for a unified continuous testing platform, and are willing to pay for it, Tricentis Tosca can be a decent investment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated other solutions including both Selenium and QTP.

What is most valuable?

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. The test sheet is very good. There are algorithms that allow you to generate various test cases that guarantee maximum coverage.

What needs improvement?

If Tosca wants to rule on the RPA world, they have to give some security guarantee. The solution should work with the Linux platform. Right now, it only runs on Windows. The solution could use different modules that would be useful to an organization. Examples of modules they could add include robotic process automation, analytics, and business intelligence among others.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. My advice to others is to get training by a professional. This will help anyone use the product. Tosca allows users, even if they don't have some IT knowledge, to quickly start and use Tosca after about two weeks. You can take any business person, and just offer them good training. After about two weeks or a month, they could be independent and will be able… more»

What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

We build the test cases, then we just need run it by one person to get feedback right away. Otherwise, it would require planning with certain testers.

What needs improvement?

* It needs better integration with JIRA. * I would like a better user interface.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

What other advice do I have?

Figure out your requirements and environment. We had the impression Tosca would be the perfect fit for us. We did a proof of concept test with all our applications, Tosca was able to work with them… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated HPE, IBM Rational Functional Tester, and Ranorex. However, for us, Tosca was the perfect choice.

We are using it for end-to-end automation. The performance is good. It's just that it doesn't support applications on the Mac. But overall it is good.

How has it helped my organization?

Helps decrease execution time.

What is most valuable?

We have multiple applications, and it supports parallel execution. It has mobile automation.

Making it more stable would be good because we get around 90% stability. It would be great if it were more stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable.

How is customer service and technical support?

We do use it but it was better a year ago. Now, the turnaround time takes a little more time.

What do you think of Tricentis Tosca?

What is our primary use case?

Primarily test automation for webshops based on PHP code. It was satisfying as long as the GUI did not change permanently.

How has it helped my organization?

It did not improve because the GUI was not static, so it was not possible to write tests for a GUI that was in progress.

What is most valuable?

The XScan was great because it was a handy way to automate on a surface which made it very easy and simple.

What needs improvement?

It should be more flexible when using the modules; it is kind of frozen there. They should be made more dynamic.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
