Testing services, extend across the software development life cycle from basic functional level testing to more specialized testing services. Services can begin from front-end QA consulting services, through test design, test case development, execution, and project tracking to performance against target productivity or defect density SLAs. Customers engage in QA consulting services to drive establishment of test strategy, or the development of centralized, standardized testing processes and frameworks, and/or best practices to drive and track test planning and execution flows.



Current trend shows increased demand on specialized areas in testing such as test automation,

non-functional testing and test consulting services. Key market trends include:



Functional testing achieves average margins while performance testing have higher margins.



Functional testing account for 75 per cent of the testing life cycle and is the main growth driver. Of this, 65 per cent is manual while 10 per cent is automated indicating the move towards

high-end services



Basic functional testing services are already commoditized, but emerging categories of service targeted at higher value realization are evolving rapidly.



Specialized testing services account for the remaining 15-25 per cent of the pie with ERP, SOA testing accounting for 5-10 per cent. This spend is likely to increase as clients expand their focus from custom application testing to ERP testing, cloud services, etc.



Consulting focuses on quality assurance, programme management and packaged applications setting up testing centers or labs for clients.
