We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence are bug hunting and OCR technology.""Its scalability is good. It is useful for desktop applications, and it also uses OCR and does image recognition.""Everything is happening on the layout or display that is used by the user. Eggplant prompts processes, like 'click here,' or 'look for this image.' Eggplant makes it possible for QA people and BAs, working in the actual display, to check if the software is providing the right images, the right text, and the right results. They don't have to go inside the code or to the TCP/IP layer. Everything is happening at the highest level.""It is easy to set up.""DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models, because we have done 95 percent of our development in functional, not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options.""The features that we like the most are the developer interface and the ability to quickly develop and deploy tests."

"The most valuable feature of Tricentis Tosca is the Tosca Commander. Functionality is another thing I find most valuable in the solution.""The low code is the best feature.""The mainframe testing and UI automation are the most valuable aspects of the solution.""The solution has plenty of features compared to other solutions.""The most valuable feature is being able to create a test case by recording some scenarios and then leasing that task case to other scenarios.""What I find valuable is that Tricentis is always refining the test methodology. They listen to feedback from the analysts about what the testing tool should do, and then Tricentis always implements it. So all the necessary testing functions are already implemented in their tools.""The automation engine is very strong, and it is very competitive in the market in terms of features. They develop a lot of features.""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."

Cons
"The language is too specific; it is just for Eggplant.""I would like to see standardized actions already built into Eggplant. For example, "wait eight seconds". That way, I wouldn't need to create it as an action. Right now, I have to program that wait and describe it as an action so that everybody knows it is an action that waits eight seconds... That way, somebody who is not familiar with programming processes like "if-else", or "for", or "while", would be able, from the first moment, and without programming, to put some easy-to-use, standardized, actions in place.""Its performance and stability could be better.""Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence could improve by lowering the price.""If one area could be improved, it would be some of their documentation. In particular, some of their online help and user support documentation is a little bit out of date and could be revised and updated on a more frequent basis. Other than that, I haven't really found any issues or problems.""The IDE could be even more full-featured. Because I was a developer, I was very spoiled by either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio for shortcuts. For example, I was able to say "ctor" and hit Tab and it would create a template of a constructor for me... It would be great, when I want to create a new function, if there were shortcut commands like those that helped create all of the functions, or if there were shortcut features to do any of the complex plans."

"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 and just give the path for that, and then it works. In the pipeline, when creating Jenkins, we create the list execution for passing the execution list to the commander. I feel it is a bit late, by a fraction of seconds. I first thought it could be my mistake or a setting issue, but I worked on that, and it's not a mistake or a setting issue.""They can make it more stable. I have used this tool for SAP applications. They have an alliance with SAP, and it mostly worked fine, but there were a few glitches. However, we got the required support from the Tricentis team. They are coming up with their new versions and upgrades with respect to how the Tricentis systems as cloud applications are updated, and it would be good if they have a robust accelerator pack.""The support we received from Tricentis Tosca was good, but it can improve.""It requires some coding customization that requires expertise.""I have found that some of the functions could be missed in the solution for new users. They are not obviously present.""I would like to see more implementation of AI on the self-healing aspect. That would be like the next step.""What needs to be improved in Tricentis Tosca is its centralized repository mechanism because it's not as flexible. The repository in the solution where you store the data and the script for test automation is quite an old-fashioned mechanism that could be improved.""The solution is expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Make a smart decision about the number of developer- and execution-only licenses you purchase to maximize your budget. We found that going heavier on execution-only licenses has been a way to reduce our costs and maximize our ability to benefit from the software."
  • "End-to-end testing isn't possible for us because of the licensing problems. It's very expensive, so we only have two development/execution licenses."
  • "It probably has a yearly license."
  • "This solution is expensive when compared to the market. However, the reason it is more expensive is because of its stability, high performance, and for its support of any technology."
  • More Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "My understanding is that it's an expensive product, although I don't know the specifics with regards to pricing."
  • "I would like to see better costing packs. There are several features but USD $11,000 for one license is expensive."
  • "Tricentis Tosca is an expensive solution and there is an annual license required. The whole licensing process is confusing and it could be made easier."
  • "I'm not sure if I'm at liberty to talk about the pricing, but it has some significant costs. For example, you have to pay a license and maintenance fee. Then the rest of the terms are negotiable. We have to consider what we need and what benefit we get from it."
  • "They are probably more expensive than other comparable tools, but you also get the full suite of testing tools."
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
  • "I am satisfied with the cost."
  • "A competitor of Tricentis Tosca: Katalon Studio, is very similar and offers lower pricing, though Tricentis Tosca offers more features and benefits."

    Overview

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is a powerful and easy-to-use solution that gives users the ability to create and test any type of application. There is no type of technology that it cannot be used to test.

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence gives users the power to create products that will best meet the wants and needs of the end user. The solution’s artificial intelligence and machine learning features give users the ability to predict how a new application will impact the audience that receives it. Ultimately, it ensures that the product that is being tested will best meet the requirements of those for whom it is being created.

    Benefits of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence

    Some of the benefits of using Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence include:

    • Insight into the mindset of end users. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence tracks users as they use applications or websites. It then employs machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that figure out the most pressing needs of those who will use the applications that are being created. Users can set these needs into the system and automate the creation and execution of application tests.
    • Simplification of complex processes. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence’s single unified user interface makes it easier for users to initiate processes by enabling them to initiate all actions from a single location. Setting up and initiating a process does not require any prior knowledge of coding.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is an automated application testing and debugging tool that stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the way that it enables users to test applications and the way that it enables users who are not necessarily involved in coding tests to understand the testing processes. There is a large selection of tests that can be used to assess many different aspects of the applications that are being created. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence also makes it easy for users to follow the testing that their applications are subjected to.

    PeerSpot user Jon G., a quality assurance analyst at a transportation company, writes, “What I'm also really happy about - and perhaps this isn't technically about functional testing, but it's related to it - is that DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models. This is because we have done 95 percent of our development via functional testing and not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options. We are testing many mobile applications through Android Gateway, and that seems to be working great. We have not had any problems with web apps or Windows applications. We are running several scrum lines, and we've just implemented QA and, therefore, QA is important. What we're trying to do is get the ongoing suite of tests that look at things currently, and then it will be a built-on regression suite as we keep going and keep adding more and more tests. We want to improve quality before handing it off to our customers. If we have mainframe stuff, it's nothing that I've had to test or deal with.”

    A business analyst at a computer software company writes, “The digital twin tool is perfect for combining the non-technical and technical sides. Someone who is not actually in the code can understand the processes that are presented by the digital twin tool. I was introduced to it with a short introduction of about one and a half hours, and I was very surprised to see something like that because I had only been working with Eggplant programming and coding. With the digital twin tool I can program something and visualize it within a module, within a process. For us, an example of such a use case is creating a new patient.”
