Introduction

Hardware and software products with latest digital technologies are finding increased adoption and acceptance in the industrial community. The fourth industrial revolution has made it possible to collect and analyze data across the industrial ecosystem, enabling faster, more efficient and flexible processes. The reliance on products and systems to function as expected has never been more, and is only increasing. Failures can have catastrophic repercussions reverberating across the complete value chain. This ongoing wave of digital transformation has made product testing a critical business strategy.

Testing as a Service (TaaS) is the latest trend in the field of software-testing. TaaS has gained popularity in the marketplace as a cloud-based delivery model. At Utthunga, we understand the real-time quality assurance problems faced by companies belonging to different industry verticals. We specialize in offering the best in class software testing as a service offering.

Why software testing as a service is required for Industries?

Testing as a Service is a self-service outsourcing model where the some of the testing activities are performed by a service provider rather than within the organization. With security control authorized access to the test assets can be ensured. TaaS detects the bottlenecks and resolves problems by testing the application continuously. Some of the benefits of TaaS include, but not

  • Holistic test automation
  • Improvement of overall QA process and delivery framework
  • Flexible and scalable delivery model
  • Better estimation and budgeting
  • Reduced capex and opex costs for infrastructure and human resources
  • Outcome based and other flexible pricing models
