Is Panaya Test Dynamix better than Tricentis Tosca?

I'm working for a company with 1000+ employees and I'm exploring two products: Panaya and Tricentis. 

How good is Panaya Test Dynamix in comparison with Tricentis? 

Thank you!

@Jesús Antonio Santos Giraldo; both companies deliver excellent tools & services. It's going to come down to your use cases. 



If you choose the wrong tool for your use case the risks are: Loss of  time, money and opportunities. That's not going to be the tool's fault. 



Tips that may help you in deciding: 


- Use your current tools / last tools as benchmark to determine your future needs. 


- Ask questions, here are a few to get you started:  


-- What are your requirements? 


-- Pros and cons of our current tools. 


-- How much time do you want to spend developing and maintaining test scripts (assuming you want to automate) 


--Who will work with the tool? 


-- What do they have to say about their experience with current / past tools?


- Build a matrix based on feedback received, decide which points really matter in your matrix. 


- Inform your org of the research you've done and ask for more input


- Go with a few key folks  who work with / worked with the tools you are targeting and have a meeting with Tricentis / Panaya.  


- Tell your story and ask how their tool can meet your need.


- Go back to your leadership and share what you learned, 


- See if you can get a trial from the toolmakers. ;-) and try out a real world test. 


- Make a documented decision on why tool X and not tool Y

Panaya and Tricentis are both good. Could you share more info on your use case and what are your key selection criteria ?

One of the biggest differences is that Tricenties offers mainly test automation capabilities, while Panaya Test Dynamix offers test management capabilities (which could be integrated with test automation tools if you are looking into automation for your project).


I believe one of the benefits of Panaya when it comes to an upgrade project is that it provides the benefits of both impact analysis and test management capabilities, so you could know what to test and get the benefit of risk-based testing.

Hi community, We're looking at a Tosca-Copado CI/CD solution for a particular client but I've seen that Copado doesn't support Tosca (April 2022).  Is anyone out there doing this at the moment  (or aware of a plan by Tricentis to do this)? Any suggestions for alternative CI/CD solutions that integrate well with TOSCA? *This is a high-level requirement at the moment as the project is still in...

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. Conclusions 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.
