Tosca fulfills our business needs better because it is an end-to-end solution across technologies. We like that it is scriptless, so even non-experienced staff can use it. To put it simply, with Tosca, we automated hundreds of scenarios, and it is the simplest we experienced. It is easy to execute the tests once they are built.

Tosca also provides a wide variety of options, such as API automation, UI automation, load testing, and more. We like that it is a single platform for test automation, providing support for the CI/CD DevOps environment. It also runs cross-device and cross-browser.

Not everything is perfect with Tosca, though. For instance, it is frustrating that they don’t support image comparison and visual validation. The upfront price can be a downside too.

Worksoft Certify is a test automation platform that has the advantage of being code-free. Therefore, non-tech users can create, maintain and share end-to-end business process tests.

If you use SAP automation, Worksoft Certify is better. You can automate, prepare and execute test scripts with ease. It works well for SAP; not so well for web applications with multiple frames. It easily integrates with third-party tools, and it is easy to maintain the scripts, too. Finally, the support is amazing.

As for the downsides, Worksoft Certify It is not particularly intuitive or user-friendly. Although being codeless is an advantage, enabling non-tech staff to work on the tool, on the other hand, codeless also means you cannot add condition case blocks, making Worksoft Certify less flexible. Although it features web automation, it is really slow and sometimes can crash - one of the things Worksoft Certify should include in supporting API testing.


We prefer Tricentis Tosca because of the multiple features and ease of use. Worksoft Certify could be a better option for organizations working with SAP.

No separate licence is required, no, for DEX. Running tests in a DEX environment does consume a licence. We encourage clients to schedule tests after hours when a licence isn't needed for designing automated tests so that the licence consumed by DEX does not impact test design and build work. If you are running tests during a time when a licence is needed for test design and build work then you will need to purchase another licence for the DEX client to use.

Yes DEX uses an execution license. Execution licenses come in packs and cost lesser than development licenses. If you have an execution license as part of your license then DEX machine Tosca automatically consumes the execution license otherwise it will go and use a development license.
