What is Testing as a Service(TaaS)?

Testing as a Service (TaaS) is an outsourcing model in which testing activities associated with an organization’s business activities are performed by a service provider rather than employees. TaaS may involve engaging consultants to help and advise employees or simply outsourcing an area of testing to a service provider. Usually, a company will still do some testing in-house. TaaS is most suitable for specialized testing efforts that don’t require a lot of in-depth knowledge of the design or the system. TaaS or Software Testing as a Service is an outsourcing model, in which testing activities are outsourced to a third party that specializes in simulating real world testing environments as per client requirements. TaaS is also sometimes known as on-demand testing.
We have automated the provisioning of test services, including hosting of the application under test, on a cloud-based platform and combined our relevant testing expertise, capabilities, market leading and open source test tools, and specialized testing learnings into a single end-to-end testing service. TaaS spans all aspects of testing, from functional, automation, performance, infrastructure, and security testing to a fully managed testing service operated on SLA's and KPI's. And it accommodates custom, enterprise, business and mobile applications. Our approach delivers up to 30% improvement in quality; up to 40% improvement in productivity and up to 30% reduced costs

  • Design test scripts
  • Select cloud service provider
  • Set up infrastructure
  • Leverage cloud service
  • Start testing
  • Monitor goals
  • Deliver

TaaS is useful when

  • Testing of applications that require extensive automation and with short test execution cycle.
  • Performing testing task that don't ask for in-depth knowledge of the design or the system
  • For ad-hoc or irregular testing activities that require extensive resources.

Benefits of Cloud Testing
