Software quality doesn’t come cheap. Are you ready to invest?
On average, 35 percent of total enterprise IT spending now goes to testing, a 9 percent increase over last year, according to the recently released World Quality Report 2015 from Capgemini, Sogeti, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The global report, which surveyed 1,560 senior IT executives and testing leaders from 32 countries, predicts that budgets will rise further, with testing set to claim 40 percent of total IT spending by 2018.
The direct correlation between software quality and the level of budget allocated for delivery teams shouldn’t come as a surprise, but this is great news for software quality professionals.
