South Africa’s firms missing opportunities in global software testing market


South Africa needs to move faster to seize opportunities in the rapidly expanding global computer software and systems testing market, currently worth about $56bn annually.

Says Liza van Wyk, CEO of management and skills-training organisations AstroTech and BizTech: “India which has been the preferred market is battling to cope while South Africa with its reputation for innovation and high standards in information technology is lagging in seizing opportunities in an area of the global economy that is not faltering, but is growing,”

Software testing is the process of executing software in a controlled environment to establish it is functioning as expected and dealing with potential risks before going live or on site.
