Until recentlysoftware testing was considered to be an elephant in the room; acknowledged by everyone, but mostly ignored. However, over the last few years the IT landscape has changed and QA has taken the center stage. Although IT budgets show little or no growth (and in some cases a decline) the demand for software testing has been on the rise. Today the spending on QA/Testing is almost 26 percent of IT budget (a 40 percent increase in 2 years). Recent studies by NASSCOM and Gartner estimate the global testing services market to be $50 Billion and Indian testing market to be $13-15 Billion by 2020.

Disruptions around technology adoptions in Digital Space will require new age software testing services and QA providers will have to gear up for that. "Even today almost 90 percent of the web and mobile applications are not tested for security and performance. In fact, many CXOs do not even have a QA Strategy. For many companies, mostly start-ups and mid-sized firms, QA is still an afterthought. This is where we saw a huge market that was still untapped and thus ImpactQA was born," says Jyoti Prasad Bhatt (JP), Founder & CEO, ImpactQA.

ImpactQA was incepted in the year 2010 to provide quality software to its clients. The company provides a gamut of software testing services ranging from Functional to Automation, from Performance to Security and from ERP Testing to Mobile App Testing. It provides end-to-end QA services throughout the SDLC; right from requirements testing to code analysis to testing the design. Not many QA organizations today focus on requirements testing and code analysis and that results in tremendously high Cost of Quality (COQ). ImpactQA consultants work with the clients and development teams in defining a Test Strategy. Across all verticals, the rich experts work on testing areas such as Mobile App, ERP Testing, White Box Testing and Test Consulting.

The Initial Dilemmas

Like any other startup, ImpactQA too faced the initial crunches of fund and resources. But their creative software solution offerings and persistent work culture helped them overcome these glitches. Most of the initial business came with word of mouth.Recently,ImpactQA joined hands with Icreon, a NY based software development firm, and that opened doors for ImpactQA to deliver an independent third party testing services to Icreon and their customers. Adding one more to the list, the company partnered with a Spanish firm (a leader in Static Testing and Code Analysis Tools) to provide end-to-end QA solutions to the customers and also help companies to get their code reviewed before it gets tested.This will help customers reduce QA cycles and time-to-market.In a nutshell, ImpactQA is one-stop QA &Testingshop, be it Test Consulting, Static or Dynamic Testing, Functional or Non-Functional Testing.Four years down the lane since inception, ImpactQA elbowed out one of India's top IT Companiesto win a QA contract witha Fortune 500 company.
