“We are excited to be positioned as a Challenger in the Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services and to be assessed for our specialized & IP led software testing services, test automation tools, and flexible delivery models.

The Magic Quadrant Report assesses 17 of the leading application service providers based on specified inclusion criteria. It reviews each provider's strengths and cautions in the application testing service categories, as well as emphasizes the areas the providers are strong in and the areas that need improvement.
“This recognition as a Challenger in the Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is a game changer for Cigniti and helps us move closer to achieving our goal of becoming the world’s largest and most respected independent software testing services company, which reflects our ability to deliver sustained growth.

Gartner defines Application Testing Services as “a comprehensive term used to capture all types of verification and validation services for the purposes of supporting quality control and quality assurance (QA) of clients' applications. Verification assesses the technical behavior, and validation assesses the functional behavior of tested elements.”
“The application testing service market, with a copious number of providers, is fast-growing. Both full IT services providers and dedicated, pure-play application testing service providers coexist. By 2018, agile and iterative development will require 30% of resources for application testing engagements to be on-site or onshore,” Gartner says.
