Software Testing is defined as the set of activities performed to check whether the software product meets the expected requirements. It is a critical component of the software development lifecycle and helps companies identify and eliminate errors made during development.

In cases where it is not organized correctly and the right resources are not allocated, the benefit to be produced by using external resources effectively in Software Testing, which is a time-consuming, tiring and error-prone business area, far exceeds the testing processes and affects the total SDLC efficiency of the companies to a very significant extent.

Research shows that the effective use of external resources can increase business efficiency up to 30% in software testing processes, and up to 20% in productivity related to all software processes. When we evaluate these ratios not only with a cost management perspective, but also with perspectives such as speed to market, product-function consistency, post-market improvement requirements, a brand new managerial door is opened. Let’s take a look behind this door with the help of a few pieces of information.

Unknowns about Outsourcing in Software Testing in 6 items:

#1 Specifically, the QA and Test Automation market continues to grow by double-digit growth of 10.4% in 2021 alone, reinforcing its transformation into an important sub-category of the Information Technologies market. (This rate was determined as 6.8% in 2020.)

#2 IT outsourcing category has revenue to exceed $396 billion and is projected to continue to grow at approximately 8% per year through at least 2027. This means that the market in question will exceed 587 billion dollars by 2027. A significant share of this growth is expected to be realized in the services main category, which consists of outsourcing and managed services.

#3 The software testing services market is expected to grow by an estimated 7% between 2021 and 2027 due to higher integration of artificial intelligence.

#4 35% of companies hire non-experts for software testing. However, 55% of companies continue to work with professionals for most of their testing needs.

#5 Outsourcing in software testing processes reduces the adaptation costs by over 40%, especially for concepts such as API & Services Test Automation, AI for Testing, IoT Automation Testing, and QAOps, where technical competence and up-to-date are of maximum importance.

#6 The most important result of software testing processes that are not designed correctly and therefore not managed properly is the increase in the inefficient use of other internal and external resources.

As a result, Outsourcing integrates numerous benefits and value propositions into the daily operations of companies in the most agile and effective way in the field of Software Testing, as in many other fields: Cost optimization, quality expectation, goal-result-oriented autonomous business management, sustainability, technologically up-to-date, efficiency, speed-agility and of course expertise!

It remains only to choose the right business partner.
