Testing has evolved from end-of-life activity to mainstream activity with projections of it becoming a $25 billion business in 2018. Based on recent research, analysts predict that the QA budgets, as a certain percentage of IT, will reach as high as 29 percent by 2017. CIOs have higher expectation about business assurance of applications and products with emphasis on reliability, high resilience, and predictability. With the ubiquity of apps, there is an increased focus on availability of systems, user experience, security, and the need for a business assurance partner.
Independent Validation Services (IVS) is transforming itself to become the best QA partner, bringing innovation and business value in everything we do. As the Testing segment experiences a paradigm shift, IVS will focus on supporting and driving business assurance.
