Overall Satisfaction with Tricentis Tosca

TOSCA has been decided as the tool of choice for our (client) organization. Before implementing TOSCA we were not very sure on the automation test process. After implementing it we were able to reduce the cycle time for regression tests.
  • Model Based Test Automation: Creation of reusable modules. Having reusable data classes is a real plus when working with huge volumes of data. Requirement coverage in TOSCA gives a clear picture on the test coverage based on frequency and damage class. This feature is very helpful in determining priority test cases during time crunch.
  • TOSCA's inbuilt combining matrix is very helpful to determine which attribute needs to be tested more. The concepts of having straight thru and negative tests along with boundary is a great plus.
  • Template based tests cover maximum scenarios with minimal effort. Ability to pause a test execution in the middle is a great utility especially when there are some un wanted popups.
  • I don't see any cons for TOSCA. One thing that I would like to suggest for Tricentis is that the pricing for TOSCA is a bit on the higher side. I do agree that the features are great but if they can compromise just a little on the price then this tool would be the market leader for decades.
  • After implementing Tosca we were able to reduce the cycle time that was spent on executing regression tests manually. I would say TOSCA was able to reduce close to 30% of the time that was spent for executing test cases manually.
Before going in for TOSCA we tried to use Selenium / UFT. But TOSCA stacked much ahead than other tools.
I have been using Tricentis tosca for automating the web as well as mainframe applications. Web application automation was a cake walk. When there are no user-friendly tools available for mainframe automation, TOSCA was able to automate mainframe applications with a little bit of effort.
