Of late, we have been seeing greater interest and enquiries on Test digest. This is from both, within and outside the company. Thank you for your continued support. Coming to Market trends, a recent IDC study projects a 2013-2017 forecast for the worldwide cloud testing and automated software quality (ASQ) software-as-a-service (SaaS) market, which experienced 37.7% growth, from 2011. IDC expects a huge annual growth rate of 31.1% for 2013-2017, resulting in projected 2017 revenue of $1 billion from this service alone. Another trend which has been steadily increasing is the phenomenon of “Crowd-sourced” test-ing. This consists of delegating software testing to a community or hiring testers through an online forum. Among the advantages it provides is that testing is carried out by a number of different testers from different places rather than by hired consultants or professionals. Through this forum, we will continue to share news and information on some of these trends apart from the core test-ing areas.
