Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Crowdsourced testing is a concept that has been gaining traction in the market. The concept allows companies to reduce the cost of operations as it enable businesses to pay only for bugs discovered. In crowdsource testing, vendors voluntarily opt to test the software and there is the chance of not getting paid if there are no bugs in the developed software. Since the availability of diverse software testers can be achieved through crowd software testing, it is increasingly gaining popularity in the testing market. Companies such as MyCrowd and UserTesting.como offer crowdsourcing testing models for e-commerce companies. Given all this, the trend of crowdsourcing is expected to further increase as the market for e-commerce is expected to grow. Also, the model offers a solution to localization and fragmentation, giving opportunity for ample testing coverage without restricting development cycles.”
According to the report, every organization today is faced by increased demand for quality from both customers and end-users alike. Businesses do not want to put their brand reputation at stake because of inferior quality standards of their IT systems. Less than half of the IT projects are successful worldwide. Industry experts say this is partly because of inefficient testing practices. Failure of an IT project at the stage of deployment will cost the client heavily. Hence, there is an increased focus on quality assurance throughout the development phase and not just at the end of it. Outsourcing testing services brings in a more structured approach. It also brings in accountability and is process driven.
Further, the report states that the outsourcing of software testing services has different associated complexities, such as improper comprehension of business requirements, cultural differences, and time zone differences.
