More evidence that software testing could be huge IT outsourcing growth area

I recently wrote about the increasing trend for businesses to outsource IT testing.

In a nutshell applications are increasingly being tested by third party suppliers as businesses strive to reduce the huge investments needed for rigorous in-house testing processes.

According to analyst Nelson Hall, the global testing services market was $8.4bn in 2011, and although 2012 is expected to be flat, it predicts an average 9% growth every year over the next five years.

It seems that there is a lot of room for growth. According to Capgemini only 13% of businesses are currently using fully managed software testing from an external provider and over half still have a separate internal function for software testing.
