Recently AppLabs commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate software testing trends. To explore these trends, Forrester developed a survey to identify the best practices, understandings, and results achieved by 100 of the Fortune 500 companies and studied additional relevant Forrsights survey results.

The results of the study published in July 2011 confirmed that of the 100 of the Fortune 500 companies studied:

• 86% of companies that outsource testing report very impressive results
• 75% have budgets allocated specifically for testing and testing automation, 47% of those companies have testing budgets of $50 million to $1 billion or more
• Forrsights survey data also indicates an expected 5% to 10% increase in outsourced testing and testing automation

“The Forrester study validates our understanding of the market”, said Sashi Reddi, founder and CEO, AppLabs. “Further we are seeing our customers today finding great value in our offerings that embed our proprietary eTAP™, enterprise Test Automation Platform, that enables large organizations to take a structured view to enterprise test automation and reap immense ROI”

Also, in the study a few testing-only and multidisciplined vendors seem to stand out in terms of recognition and engagement, and the large Tier 1 Indian vendors are not among the top five. Additionally, testing consulting ranked as a high interest for this group of companies, which was further emphasized by the fact that 100% of those spending $1 billion or more on testing use testing consultants.
