|SOFTEC ASIA 2017 to provide opportunities for knowledge sharing and business networking|
KUALA LUMPUR, July 6, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - The 10th edition of Asia's premier annual event in the field of software testing, SOFTEC Asia, will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 1 to 3 August 2017. Featuring the theme "Testing as a Service" (TaaS), SOFTEC Asia 2017 will be focusing on key services-related elements of software testing including people, process and technology.
At SOFTEC Asia 2017, 16 international experts will share their experiences and impart their knowledge in various fields related to Software Quality Assurance (SQA) and software testing sessions, covering technical, management and business aspects of the subjects. Collectively, the speakers will helm over 50 keynote, concurrent and tutorial sessions over the three days.
MSTB President Puan Mastura Abu Samah said TaaS is rapidly gaining popularity as a delivery model for outsourced testing services. This is in direct relation to customers' demand for faster provisioning of testing services reduced unit costs.
"With flexibility and scalability in pricing - pay-per-use structure, TaaS is certainly appealing. In addition, TaaS removes customers' need for capital expenditure on testing resources and thus, enable better budgeting and cost estimations," she said.
According to Technavio's Global Software Testing Services Market 2014-2018 report, the Global TaaS market was valued at US$703.03 million in 2013 and was expected to reach US$2,894.05 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 32.71 percent. In comparison, the same report projected an 11.15 percent CAGR for the global software testing services over the same period.
Pn. Mastura further explained that not all types of testing services can be delivered effectively through TaaS model. "Providers of TaaS must first establish their testing capability and competent testing teams as well as have the right methodology, supported by sufficient testing infrastructure for testing tools, applications and automation."
"At SOFTEC Asia 2017, we will look at key elements of TaaS covering the People, Process and Technology; as well as zoom in into relevant issues related to TaaS from technology and business points of view," she concluded.
SOFTEC Asia 2017 will also feature an enlarged exhibition area to cater for the growing domestic demand for software testing services. Software testing solutions providers are encouraged to showcase their capabilities and expertise by securing the available booths at the exhibition area.
Conference tickets at Softec Asia 2017 are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) claimable.
