About the Book

The current economic climate is making companies review their approach to IT even more closely. The same vision could also extend to IT services and particularly testing. Existing technologies of service network virtualisation, business process modelling, cloud based test automation tools and rapid and easy internet access allow for the delivery approaches that allow companies to consume Testing as a Service and pay only for what they use. There is no need to spend large sums on test environments, data masking, test tool selection and maintenance. The use of cloud based services mean you can select the right level of service at a time when you need it and at the volumes you need it whether it is one or one thousand testers on one or many environments, located locally or around the world.
