Global Software Testing business to reach $13 Billion – Good news for Indian software Testers

The most frequently asked questions to me till date are “What is the future of software testing business?” “Should I consider software testing as my career option?” – Now you don’t need to ask these question to me anymore. See the good news below.

Infosys Chief Executive and Managing Director, Mr. Kris Gopalakrishnan estimated global software testing business to reach $13 Billion by 2010. Out of these approximately half of the testing work will be outsourced to India – according to Mr. Gopalakrishnan. That’s great news for Indian software testers.

Mr.Gopalakrishnan was speaking at the inauguration of International software testing conference in Bangalore organized by STeP-IN. The conference was aimed to discuss on various software testing opportunities and future of Indian test community.

Currently, Indian software testing community is the largest in the industry and hence there is tremendous business competition in Indian corporations. This competition finally leads to quality work and this is helping India to satisfy global customers. India is having immense talent and customers are coming to India for superior work quality.

Software testers and analysts are now a key part of any product team. Indian IT giants like Infosys is deriving up to 10 percent of revenue from software testing services and significantly growing each year.

Irrespective of software testing global or Indian business I have always suggested candidates to choose your career according to your interest. One can make a good career in any field if you have interest and goal to pioneer in that field. Without interest, not a single career option will work for you.

So tighten the belts – learn new technologies on software testing, continuously update your knowledge and don’t even think about future of software testing market!

What’s that you say?

  42. Hi all ,

    I am developer by the way :) . And I love testers. If there was no tester for the website in my company, client would have killed us. Because there were many issues that ONLY Tester could find. I just wonder if you follow same way in your life too? I mean ALWAYS finding error in something, error in what other people do. For example you would be saying to your wife : “Hi Janhavi, food has 10% less salt today as compared to yesterday” like this just for example. Please let me know is your daily routine like this only?

    You can reach me , I am on stackoverflow (With very good reputation points :) ) . My contact details are given there.

    And dont be disappointed, I just have 1 advice for you guys. Please use English properly. You have LOTS of grammatical , spelling mistakes. Learn from it, and do some testing on yourself too dont just judge other people only.

  43. Software Testers deserve more appreciation from stakeholders. Why do then some Clients pay less dollars for testers. Devs and QA should both be treated like Engineers.

  44. This is the good news for software tester. Some people having some confusion or doubt about testing. So i would love to mention that SQS Infosystem kind of company which is having core expertise of software testing. It can be best option for software tester. It is one of the biggest software testing-based company.
