LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio analysts forecast the global test environment as a service (TEaaS) market to grow at a CAGR exceeding 23% during the forecast period, according to their latest report.
The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global test environment as a service market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from cloud-based test environment management solutions and testing as a service (TaaS) offerings to manage software test environment.
Technavio ICT analysts highlight the following four factors that are contributing to the growth of the global test environment as a service market:
- Rise of as-a-service model for testing services
- Cost reduction and faster release of software
- Shift to test automation services
- Increase in agile testing services
Rise of as-a-service model for testing services
As-a-service models such as software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), testing as a service (TaaS), and environment-as-a-service (EaaS), are gaining traction in the IT market, especially in cloud-based services. These solutions are delivered on the basis of requirements of organizations. Testing-as-a-service (TaaS) is quickly growing in popularity, as it meets the requirements of the evolving IT landscape. TaaS offers output-based testing, covering every aspect of the lifecycle requirements.
According to Amit Sharma, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on cloud computing, “Industries such as telecom, automotive, manufacturing, and BFSI are increasingly shifting to as-a-service business model. For instance, an environment-as-a-service model enables IT professionals to perform software testing in a holistic IT environment over a secure IT infrastructure. Consequently, these solutions are gaining popularity in the market.”
Cost reduction and faster release of software
TEaaS are IT services, which are hosted in the cloud for test environment management (TEM) for software testing services. TEaaS reduces the cost of software testing in software development organizations and enables shifting from CAPEX model to OPEX model. TEaaS services require a minimum upfront cost to manage the test environment in organizations. TEaaS are on-demand testing services, which can be accessed through the internet. IT eliminates the need to install on-premise software, tools, and IT infrastructure to manage test environments. Thus, organizations can significantly reduce the cost of IT resources to manage test environments. EaaS solutions enable software developers to build and test software applications faster, which helps organizations introduce new software applications quickly in the market.
“Due to increasing adoption of social, mobile, analytics, and SMAC technologies in organizations, the demand for innovative software applications is growing. IT managers can do more with less to execute the software testing process, and enable software developers to create and run software applications efficiently,” says Amit.
Shift to test automation services
Manual software testing is a tedious and time-consuming process. Instead, testers using automated testing systems do not have to stay in proximity with the system at all times; they only need to conduct analysis upon completing the entire testing process. Choosing the right automation tool is imperative for the success of any automation project. Automated software testing focuses on the quality of the product, from the initial phase of software development all the way till product delivery. It helps reduce the time spent on the entire testing process. For an automated system that is accurately designed, a test code written once can be used for a lifetime with little maintenance. The market for automated software testing solutions is likely to grow in step with the growing pressure on software vendors to provide both product and business value.
Increase in agile testing services
Agile testing services refer to the testing methodology of software and applications for faster development of software products and implementation of applications. Agile testing services provide a framework to test the applications and infrastructure effectively. Testing of the infrastructure of cloud-based applications is executed through agile testing process for QA and faster time-to-market. Organizations are adopting agile testing services to implement new methodologies for testing services and enhance the quality of cloud infrastructure. Testing services to test the cloud environment require an in-depth understanding of the design capabilities and the client’s requirement for cloud-based services so that customers can change their configurations in the cloud as per business requirements. Projects that adopt cloud-based services require automated methods to test the IT applications at various stages. Agile testing services providers are delivering seamless testing services through automation tools and a team of skilled technical professionals.
