Programme In Software Testing

The NIIT has entered into a strategic partnership to offer PG certificate programme in Software Testing. The course will enable learners to apply key testing skills and practices using HP Tools.

Today, businesses run on software and are severely impacted when software applications malfunction. Software applications, particularly those on the cloud, often serve millions of end-users. High availability and bug-free software applications are crucial to ensure customer satisfaction. Thus, software testing is vital to ensure the quality of a software application before it is deployed in a data centre or released to customers.

According to NASSCOM, the software testing outsourcing market is expected to grow from $30 billion in 2010 to $50 billion in 2020 worldwide and India is expected to be the biggest beneficiary.

Speaking on the launch Shivan Bhargava, group president, Skills and Careers Group, NIIT Ltd said: “We have always believed in offering programs customised to the evolving needs of the industry. With the global software testing market witnessing a robust growth at a CAGR of 11 percent over the period 2013-2018, we have observed a growing demand for software testing professionals in India. Taking cognizance of the opportunity, we have entered into a partnership.”
