About the Test Environment as a Service Market
Testing as a service (TEaaS) is an on-demand cloud-based service to manage end-to-end software test environments. Test environments are created during the software testing process to enable software testers to use testing tools and executive testing processes successfully and to develop high-quality software products and applications. Firms are using cloud-based solutions for test environment management over on-premise software solutions. Cloud-based TEM solutions are cost-effective, flexible, and scalable software testing solutions. IT provides flexibility in terms of usage of TEaaS, for software testers to perform software testing on newly built software products and applications.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global test environment as a service market to grow at a CAGR of 23.5% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global test environment as a service market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, we consider revenue generated from cloud-based test environment management solutions and testing as a service (TaaS) offerings to manage software test environment.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Test Environment as a Service Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global test environment as a service market: CSC, HCL Technologies, IBM, Infosys, and Wipro.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Accenture, Atos, CA Technologies, Capgemini, Cognizant, HP, Infotree Solutions, Mindtree, QA Infotech, TCS, and Tech Mahindra.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is playing an important role in market growth is the growing use of cloud-based testing. Service providers are offering cloud-based testing software and solutions that target SMEs. These services are delivered on a subscription basis and follow the pay-per-use model. SMEs with limited budgets can also opt for these services as service providers provide the required IT infrastructure. Cloud computing offers a broad level of flexibility and a high degree of accessibility to testing tools and test environments from anywhere at any time. By moving IT infrastructure to the cloud, financial organizations can cut capital investments as well as the costs associated with maintenance, security, and infrastructure.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the rise of as-a-service model for testing services. As-a-service model is gaining traction in the IT market, especially in cloud-based services. As-a-service models such as SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, TaaS, and EaaS are IT solution offerings that 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.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the lack of unified environment provisioning. Inconsistent environment provisioning systems in TEaaS solutions reduce the efficiency of the software testing process and delays the final development of software products and applications.
