Software Testing: Riding on the Era of Transformation

'Your pain is my gain', the software testing industry has evolved over the years based on this simple mantra. According to the classic definition of Myers, "Software testing is the process of executing a program or system with the intent of finding errors." Today, software bugs are costing the US economy an estimated over $59.5 billion each year, with more than half of the cost borne by end users and the remainder by developers and vendors. The federal study states that the improvements in testing could reduce this cost by about a third, or by $22.5 billion, but it won't eliminate all software errors. Now, the Indian companies have realized the potential opportunity of testing as a business and it is no more only part of software development, as it used to be earlier.India, having the legacy and advantage on the offshoring model, is quick in terms of realizing that the problem is not about just testing the problem, it is about providing good quality software. This is evident from the fact of all IT majors having testing centers of excellence and offering independent testing service.
