Worldwide Automated Software Quality Forecast, 2015–2019: Competitive Velocity to Fuel Future Growth

Worldwide Automated Software Quality Forecast, 2015–2019: Competitive Velocity to Fuel Future Growth

This IDC study provides worldwide automated software quality market forecast for 2015–2019."In a global economy that remained volatile in 2014 but with ongoing, dramatically increased complexity for multimodal software development and deployment and service virtualization with constrained resources, we saw some ongoing investment and demand for ASQ solutions and some growth for vendors, typically," said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC's Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies service. "Market and product evolution will occur as larger vendors deliver more complete quality and life-cycle management solutions and consolidation continues. As a result of the earlier disruption and ongoing software quality challenges, we saw some continuing ASQ investment. Smaller vendors continue to play a crucial role for market innovation as we see from cloud testing, quality measurement with static and dynamic analysis and security leverage, and agile and mobile solutions; these areas are dominated by small and medium-sized companies. We have seen significant consolidation over the past 18 months and expect additional acquisitions in this space in the 2015–2016 time frame with solid ASQ growth particularly for cloud, mobile, security-related and quality code analytics and embedded areas."
