Overall Satisfaction with Tricentis Tosca

I work in the Software Quality assurance team in my organization which is a medium sized IT services provider. We are in process of forming a team which is proficient in using Tosca as a test automation tool for Desktop and Mobile applications. My interaction with the tool has been for the same reasons.
  • Tosca provides a one-stop solution for your test-automation needs. One can use it to automate testing of desktop (web/stand-alone) applications, Mobile(Native as well as Web) applications etc.
  • It is a great tool since it not only helps in test automation but also in maintaining a suite for Manual testing.
  • It does have a steep learning curve, A tool is often perceived capable of doing only what its user is able to achieve in accomplishing while using it. For this reason, its very necessary if for the team at Tricentis to continue doing the great work they are doing to train early adopters of this fantastic tool.
  • It is too early to comment on this.
I have really minimum exposure with QTP and ALM, barely 2 months or so, for this reason I would not like to comment on how Tosca stacks up against them, but something that I really like about Selenium is that it is really simple and easy to setup, doesn't require a heavy application to write automation scripts in it. It's a pretty cost effective means since it is open source. So I would say that it's a great option for someone to choose if they are looking to test only desktop websites.
It is a brilliant tool if the application under test needs to be tested on multiple configurations (Mobile/ Desktop/Web/Native).
Since the tool allows to maintain the manual test-suite within itself I believe it would help considerably to ensure that there are no gaps between the Manual and automated test coverage and the manual as well as the automation teams can work closely.
