Good online support, and has a reusable model
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "The document object model or some aspects of it has a bit of a learning curve."

What is our primary use case?

Tricentis Tosca is used to test our in-house products. We have developers for Google and other web applications for our internal use, but that product is developed by outsourced developers, that needs to be tested.

What is most valuable?

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.

We only use the UI for testing purposes, so all other features are unusable to us.

What needs improvement?

The document object model or some aspects of it has a bit of a learning curve.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Tricentis Tosca for one year.

We use the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I don't have any issues with the stability of Tricentis Tosca.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Because my organization or team only has one or two testers, we don't need to think about scalability. As a result, that product does not need to be scalable in my environment.

How are customer service and support?

My experience with the Tricentis website support was good.

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

I have experience with Selenium HQ and Parasoft.

We conducted a SOAtest using Parasoft. Tricentis Tosca is different and better, because it has a reusable model, whereas the others do not.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup requires some learning time. In my experience, we have testers who have no development experience, so we need to educate them on the development side. I'm referring to the ID in the document object model or some aspects of it. After that, we'll be able to use it. In my experience, the learning curve was the most difficult obstacle.

It took approximately three months to complete the deployment.

This solution is maintained by two people, the same two who use it.

What about the implementation team?

I was able to learn the installation process myself.

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

Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others, but in our country, I believe the importance of testing is currently ignored or underestimated. It is not popular in our country at this moment but I will recommend this tool.

We are partners with Tricentis.

I would rate Tricentis Tosca an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Good reporting and interface, but supports limited types of protocols and requires low-level script editing
Pros and Cons
  • "Reporting is pretty good. Its interface is also good. I'm overall pretty happy with the functionality and use of IBM Rational Test Workbench."
  • "It should have more interfaces. In terms of interfaces or protocols, what you can do with Rational is far limited as compared to other products out there. What it does, it does great, but it only gives you limited types of protocols. It supports between 8 to 15 types of protocols, whereas other test tools give you 20 to 30 types of protocols with which you can do testing and convert to script. It records Javascript-based scripts, and you got to know a little bit of Java to basically be able to edit them, but the level of editing you got to do is very low. I like that, but the ability to edit the script is not as good as Parasoft or LoadRunner, which have C-Script."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use it for web-based traffic. It is on-premises. The load generators of the test drivers are virtual machines. We are using the second to the latest version.

What is most valuable?

Reporting is pretty good. Its interface is also good. I'm overall pretty happy with the functionality and use of IBM Rational Test Workbench. 

What needs improvement?

It should have more interfaces. In terms of interfaces or protocols, what you can do with Rational is far limited as compared to other products out there. What it does, it does great, but it only gives you limited types of protocols. It supports between 8 to 15 types of protocols, whereas other test tools give you 20 to 30 types of protocols with which you can do testing and convert to script.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable for the most part. More of my issues are related to virtual infrastructure impact than anything else.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

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

It doesn't really concern me. Licensing is on a yearly basis.

What other advice do I have?

The only real issue I have is that it is limited in its use. If it fits your usage, it is awesome.

I would rate IBM Rational Test Workbench a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
