About Theme

Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) is a rapidly gaining popularity as a delivery model for outsourced testing services. This is in direct relation to customers demand for faster provisioning of testing services reduced unit costs. With flexibility and scalability in pricing – pay-per-use structure, TaaS is certainly appealing. In addition, TaaS removes customers’ need for capital expenditure on testing resources and thus, enable better budgeting and cost estimations.

According to Technavio, Global Software Testing Services Market 2014-2018 report, the Global TaaS market was valued at US$703.03 million in 2013 and was expected to reach US$2,894.05 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 32.71 percent. In comparison, the same report projected an 11.15 percent CAGR for the global software testing services over the same period.


Nevertheless, NOT all types of testing services can be delivered effectively through TaaS model. Providers of TaaS MUST first establish their testing capability and competent testing teams as well as have the right methodology, supported by sufficient testing infrastructure for testing tools, applications and automation.


At SOFTEC Asia 2017, we will look at key elements of TaaS covering the People, Process and Technology; as well as zoom in into relevant issues related to TaaS from technology and business points of view​.​
