World Quality Report 2014-15 Benelux section provides analysis specific to the results of the research study in Benelux. Top Testing trends identified this year are: 
  • In 2014, the share of QA and Testing budget dedicated to maintenance work has reduced from 51% in 2013 to 45%, freeing up funds to focus on new initiatives. 
  • Despite the heightened focus on application quality, the proportion of QA and Testing in the overall IT budget has not grown, reflecting the growing trend toward integrating deployment and development organizations (DevOps) and higher levels of efficiency in the QA and Testing function. 
  • Organizations are moving away from exclusively using internal resources and are looking for partners who can help set up the framework for effective testing processes within the context of agile delivery environments involving ongoing interaction with business owners and end-users.
