Why Read This Report

Constrained IT budgets and risk-averse business stakeholders continue to highlight the need for a robust yet practical software testing organization — but what is the best way to build such an organization? Most software testing organizations grow organically with junior developers or business resources, but in today's development organizations, on-the-job learning can be risky and expensive. One possible solution is to leverage certified testers, test managers, and analysts. And while resources with this accreditation on their resume are still in the minority, testing certification is growing as a requirement for hiring companies and as an opportunity for career growth for individuals. While certification does bring definite benefits in building stronger practices, application development and quality assurance (QA) managers must choose the right tester with the right certification to provide the most value to an application development organization.
