The Pure Play Software Testing Service refers to a testing process of a developed software by an IT company. A company offering such testing services can either be an independent company, a product development company or a system integration services company. This service tests software for its quality, completeness, accuracy, and security. In addition, it executes a program or application for identifying errors, and compares the actual output with the expected one, by feeding a set of test values. These services also include test improvement services; such as training courses, transformation test reviews, etc Software testing refers to observing the execution of software system, to validate whether it behaves as intended or not. Earlier studies had concluded that testing can consume almost half of the total software development costs. However, from the recent studies, it has been found that software bugs (part of code that do not work properly if not corrected during development) have impacted the US greatly in the recent years. Testing helps remove such bugs. Thus, cost savings, business process improvements, the need for quality, and meeting both functional & non-functional testing requirements is driving this market globally. Cloud based applications are becoming the trend of the software market. As a result, the testing market has also become Cloud-based. For instance, companies like IBM, CSS Corp, etc. have started Cloud based testing, which is likely to reduce the cost and timing of testing the application. Further, companies are investing significantly in building competence in various specialized testing services; such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) testing, web-based application testing, Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) testing, Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) testing, Wireless and Mobile technologies testing, etc. As the domain of software application development is increasing significantly, so is the need for testing the specialized applicatio
