The report forecasts the global cloud infrastructure testing market to grow at a CAGR of 16.67% during the period 2016-2020.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
A key trend, which is boosting market growth, is the rising adoption of testing as a service (TaaS). The major factor behind TaaS is the need to reduce the cost of in-house testing services. Testing services, such as security testing, regression testing, and testing of cloud-based applications, are outsourced to third-party service providers.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the growth in agile testing services. These services provide a framework to test applications and infrastructure effectively. Testing of the infrastructure of cloud-based applications is executed through the agile testing process for quality assurance (QA) and faster time-to-market. Agile testing services providers are delivering seamless testing services through automation tools and teams of skilled technical professionals.
Further, the report states that the primary barrier in the adoption of cloud-based services is the security concerns for data privacy and information security. Testing services to ensure optimum level of security is becoming a more complex as a process due to a number of guidelines and IT security regulations and policies. Hacking and security breaches in the cloud-based services is becoming common.
