Tricentis Tosca Valuable Features

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. It has other features for requirements which we are just starting to look at. We do have another requirements tool which is enterprise-wide. Not everyone is using Tosca in our company. We still have a mix of a couple of tools. Even though Tosca has a great requirements feature, and some teams are using it, they are still expected to use our standard enterprise requirements tool. It's a choice that the users are making regarding whether they use the other features of Tosca, like requirements and risk-based testing, or not. View full review »

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 good. Our data is the number-one important driver for our company, so if that's not good, we have some big problems. Tosca Commander lets any test cases that are UI driven validate, and tests the UI and expected results. Also, the nice thing about the model's solution is that we're able to build out the modules within Tosca, to facilitate ease of maintaining the test cases. It allows one spot to do an update and that flows through all the test cases that need to be updated. View full review »

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 cases on the same thing. So, that's a useful thing. Otherwise, we have to use the cleanup process. Another useful feature is to have our own library files. We can create our objects in the libraries and reuse them. There is no need to create duplicate data for that. They have been giving some enhancements recently which means integration is also there. They've integrated with different software like Jenkins, Bamboo. So, we can also create pipeline points. They have recently given SAP and everything, which is very useful. View full review »

I have found the test templates to be very useful. Distributed execution with RDP is highly useful. This solution is very easy to learn and any non-programmer or manual tester, with little experience in automation, can pick it up quite easily. It has a built-in repository to store all of the artifacts in the same place. View full review »

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 you don't have to write any code. The interface is very organized. You can find folders and settings for everything that you need, and you can easily connect things together. View full review »

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. View full review »

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 same can be achieved by other tools as well, but not all within the same platform. The ease of maintainability is also a differentiating factor. View full review »

Bid Manager - Expert Continuous Testing at Sogeti UK
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. View full review »
