Nowadays, more and more customer-focused companies are striving to implement continuous software delivery to create business value faster. Development and operations (DevOps) and Agile practices are disrupting old methods of software testing to sustain the increasing demand for quality at speed. Therefore, continuous testing becomes the new standard. It goes beyond automation and encompasses all practices – including tools and cultural change – that help reduce risks before progressing to subsequent software development life cycle stages.
In the recent report “Vendor Landscape: Continuous Testing Services For Agile And DevOps Environments”, Forrester features 44 global application development and delivery services providers, including Ciklum, that are involved with continuous testing. They operate in multiple vertical industries and at least two of the following global regions: North America, South America, EMEA, Asia Pacific, and Africa.
The report is aimed to help understand continuous testing services and navigate the CT services vendor landscape for scale, comprehensiveness, and efficacy.
The service providers that compose the supply side of the global market are divided into five different categories. Forrester based its categorization on the testing revenue of each vendor, its top testing services, and the number of automation engineers whom they had in their organization:
- Small, Medium-Size, and Large Service Providers categories include global market players, including Ciklum, who offer testing as part of a wide portfolio. The service providers in these categories deliver a broad array of services beyond testing and at least a companion software development outsourcing service. This is a relevant consideration for clients looking to support Agile and DevOps teams.
