What is most valuable?

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… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We have five large business units: financial, property and casualty, enterprise applications, marketing, and emerging business. And then we have a shared-services… more »

What needs improvement?

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… more »

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

We have a three-year license. The one thing I'll say is that it is very expensive. That's the reason we are not giving access to Tosca to everyone in the company, because… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In terms of model-based, scriptless automation, Tosca is the first of its kind in our organization. We have been using Ruby Cucumber and Selenium, but they are all… more »

What other advice do I have?

Before looking at a tool, it's not just about implementing the tool. It's about having the right mindset to be able to implement a tool. With Tosca, we didn't go and say… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We work with Accenture, Cognizant and Tara. They are our global service providers. We did an RFP, but Accenture only put Tosca on the table. They didn't give us any other… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are * Tosca BI * Tosca Commander. Tosca BI is important to make sure that our data integrity is in check and validated; to make sure our data is… more »

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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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 »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated SmartBear, HPE QTP (now UFT), QuerySurge, and Alteryx. It was very apparent that Tosca was an all-in-one solution. We could do database testing, UI, and API… more »

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found the most valuable is the recovery and cleanup process. Suppose there is a list of test cases and one test case has failed, it should not impact the other test cases. We can reuse the same test case. We can change the configuration of parameters and then use the test… more »

What needs improvement?

It would be of great help if they can fix the loading or performance issues. Sometimes, when I create the test case folder and test cases, it feels like it has loading or performance issues. When passing the objects, we can't sometimes find the exact element. We need to find out that exact location… more »

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

I am satisfied with the cost.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this product to my colleagues or my friends because it is very useful if they are using the Tosca Query Language (TQL). We can find exact data from any project, which is one of the best benefits. It is a very easy, convenient product for everyone. Tricentis Tosca is very… more »

What is most valuable?

- Great User Interface and ease of checking all your artifacts of Testing. - Makes optimal use of Model-based Test practice in getting Object-references from the… more »

How has it helped my organization?

- Brought a good environment of test automation - Allowed a significant increase in Continuous Integration

What needs improvement?

- Upgrades to the newer version, if extra Add-ins are installed sometimes causes weird issues. - Needs a UI to be open and present when running the tests. Cannot visit the… more »

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

Pricing is steep, if you go for the premium model. Advise would be to buy a mix of licenses, depending on the need. The Tricentis Sales are pretty good at helping you with… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, have been using HP QTP and Selenium for Test Automation. Switch was mainly due to Team constraints and management wanting to try a new tool which is easier for the… more »

What other advice do I have?

Take the online training on Udemy before you confirm the intent to buy it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, evaluated TestComplete, HP UFT ALM, Selenium / SpecFlow / Cucumber.

What is most valuable?

The automation testing functionality is very powerful. 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. The graphical interface means that… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Using the automation tool, I can transfer test cases that are being done manually to ones that are automated. After about 30 such instances, I use the regression system from the suite to create all possible combinations of test cases to try… more »

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with other testing tools. There is full integration with Selenium and having this with other tools would be good. Integration with other programming languages would also be helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Selenium HQ, Katalon Studio, and Ranorex.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to make use of the extensive library that they have. It is a good collection of training videos and documentation, and I would advise everybody to go through these materials. They… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the extremely fast setup. You can really get up and running within a very small window of time. It's great. We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to improve its simulation of mobile environments. Right now, that aspect is really lacking. The solution should work to try to lessen the cost of the solution. Right now, using it is costly for companies such as ours. We'd like to see improvement in shared repositories. The… more »

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

We're simply customers of Tosca. We don't have any professional relationship with the company. The pricing of the solution is quite expensive. It's definitely not one of the cheapest options. It's very pricey. On top of the already expensive pricing, there are add-ons that help with the basic test… more »

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd recommend people do a proof of concept (POC) around Tosca and compare it to other available tools. That way, an organization will know if the solution is right for them without investing too much time into everything.

What is most valuable?

Risk-based testing, test optimization, and support for over one hundred technologies are some of the most important capabilities of the platform. Many may argue that the… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Tricentis Tosca has evolved from being a functional test automation tool to becoming a Continuous Testing platform. It has helped teams within our organization become more… more »

What needs improvement?

Even though the platform has been continuously evolving, there is room for improvement. For example: * Test reporting hasn't been as impressive as the other components of… more »

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

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

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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 »
