The Last Outsourcing Frontier: Software Testing

| Point of View
Software testing represents perhaps one of the last major opportunities for businesses to reduce IT overheads and improve efficiency through outsourcing.
 
Many of the traditional barriers associated with software testing (ill-defined testing and requirements processes, limited understanding of actual testing costs) can be overcome by selecting an experienced testing partner with proven industry expertise and structured processes that will ensure best practices are consistently applied.
 
When successfully executed, outsourcing of software testing can reduce the cost of the testing function by 25% or more, as well as improving time to market and overall software quality. This is vital because so many businesses now heavily rely on IT applications functioning faultlessly, time after time.
