Software Quality Assurance Testing is one of the most important and critical phases in all software development projects. A tester has to ensure that the newly developed software/software enhancements meet up with the performance requirements and that those softwares are consistent and reliable. The competition in the software development market has increased to a huge extent, which has made quality assurance testing such an important process. But it is a fact that a company has to shell out huge amounts of money in order to carry out in-house software testing.
This can be reflected in the final product making it costlier making the customer move to other cheaper versions.
The best way to avoid such a situation is to outsourced testing services to off-shore destinations. By Software Testing Outsourcing a company can realize huge cost savings and also improve efficiency to a great extent. Let us look at some benefits of Software Testing Outsourcing.
The best destination as of now to outsource testing is India. Organizations around the globe engaged in software development today are facing an ever-increasing demand, a shrinking budget and an increasingly smaller and more expensive workforce market to meet those demands. To counter these challenges, organizations need to unambiguously and meticulously pursue their business goals and do away with practices that are time consuming and non-value additive. Henceforth, companies are opting for outsource testing. As competition is on the upsurge, organizations are increasingly relying on the outsourcing model of business management. Organizations may outsource all work that is support category rather then revenue producing, and all activities that do not offer career opportunities into the senior management.
Outsourcing has taken some new strategic dimensions over the last decade. Organizations are spending more time on their core business and global competitive pressure as market dynamics continue to change rapidly.
The realization that it cannot address all market segments has made organizations to concentrate more on their core competencies and to rely on service providers to manage critical but non-core processes for them. Outsourcing thus continues to evolve as an attractive proposition enabling organizations to concentrate more on mission critical aspects of their business. Offshore outsourcing has a bunch of benefits, which can be listed as follows :
Utilization of software resources of service provider's offshore center will result in significant revenue savings for the clients.
Time to market
As the offshore service provider function seamlessly with the client in the product development and maintenance cycle, the time to market of the product is reduced considerably.
Access to leading practices
External service providers give companies access to an extensive, highly specialized knowledgebase. Service Providers by nature of their specialization in their respective domain areas have highly evolved processes and continuous improvement models to remain competitive.
Clearer Strategic focus
Companies/Clients can continue to focus on core competencies and strategic issues rather then on routine time consuming activities.
Improving service quality and productivity, reduce response time, deploy solutions faster and improve system ability.
Manpower and expertise
The client can leverage on the skills and expertise of the individuals of the service provider and thus maximize performance. Non-availability of skilled engineers is also an issue, which can be solved by the service provider. Over the last decade India has emerged as an important destination for outsourcing of a diverse range of global companies, who have improved their performance, experienced tremendous value additions from partnerships with major Indian IT firms. Cost-effective and high-quality software solutions are something which corporate giants in the United States, Europe, Japan and some south west Asian companies are increasingly seeking from the Indian IT service counterparts. A strong supply of high-programming talent, favorable government policies and tax incentives and the ability to complement U.S. time zones with a virtual around-the-clock approach are some of the advantages India has to offer.
