Global Outsourced Software Testing Services Market 2009-2013

Outsourced Software Testing Services refers to the testing process for a developed software by an IT company. A company offering testing services can either be an independent company, a product development company or a system integration services company. It tests a software for its quality, completeness, accuracy, and security. In addition, it executes a program or application for identifying errors, and compares the actual output with the expected one, by feeding a set of test values. These services also include test improvement services; such as training courses, transformation test reviews, etc

In simplest terms, software testing refers to observing the execution of software system, to validate whether it behaves as intended or not. Earlier studies had concluded that testing can consume almost half of the total software development costs. However, from recent studies, it has been found that software bugs (part of code that do not work properly if not corrected during development) have impacted the US in in a greater way in the recent years. Testing helps remove such bugs. Thus, cost savings, business process improvements, the need for quality, and meeting both functional & non-functional testing requirements is driving this market globally.

Enterprises are outsourcing their software testing requirement to ensure that the software meets both functional and non-functional requirements. The vendors of software testing services ensure that software testing meets the requirements of such enterprises, even though these firms are not involved in software development. Further, outsourcing of software testing is also gaining importance due to cost benefits.

The economic slow-down of 2009 and increasing market competition have made companies look for various means to reduce their software development cost. Further, since software testing contributes a major part to this development cost, companies are looking to optimize their spending in testing. This is encouraging companies to adopt outsourcing software testing services. These outsourcing testing service providers use automation tools, handle multiple projects, and employ specialized resources to provide low cost services.
