The new procurement market intelligence report analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Increase in adoption of enterprise applications among businesses

Organizations are increasingly shifting towards the digitization of operations across operational, financial, marketing, and human resource activities.  Enterprise applications such as ERP, CRM, and BPM, which are widely used by organizations, need to be tested before deployment to ensure that they are free of defects and to ensure their ability to meet the requirements for which they are being deployed.

Ability of testing services to mitigate risks of application and system failure

Deployment of business applications without adequate testing exposes an organization to a high level of risk as any failure due to malfunction of the application post deployment can lead to high costs related to rectification. It can also have an adverse effect on the reputation of the organization and its prospects in the market.  By testing applications before deployment, organizations can reduce the development costs by an average of up 30% due to the ability of these testing services to be able to identify and help implement corrective measures in a timely manner. The need to prevent failures is prompting organizations to avail business application testing services.

Increased cost-effectiveness of testing services due to emergence of cloud-based testing

Business applications are becoming more dynamic, complex, and modular. Most business applications, especially those that are web-based, need to be tested for compatibility with different operating systems and upgrades. Testing infrastructure requires a huge amount of resources and capital, as it requires the services of skilled professionals and expensive infrastructure. This is prompting service providers to adopt cost-effective options such as cloud-based services. The elimination of the need for physical infrastructure helps service providers save on costs and pass it on to their clients.
