Do you want to start your own QC offshore business?

Essentially, QC plays one big part in software development cycle, from beginning to end. Once blue print of software architecture is prepared, use cases are drawn and from use case, test cases are prepared. Use cases are prepared to optimize the chances of capturing the possible bugs. And finally tester starts the test and blah blah… This sounds pretty straight huh. Not so straight. Why? A software company needs many software testers. A tester requires an overall technical knowledge. A poor …

…software …programmer can be good tester. Quality software needs very keen testers, so a mediocre developer will do the job. Large software companies can afford both cost of tester and time and there is a very good ROI for them. But for mediocre and small company (practically in United States and Europe) it is a big burden. And shipping bug prone software means you guys know what. So they certainly want some one to do QC for them and that too cheaply. Today’s world software testing market is estimated around $13 billion. An estimated $3 billion out of above figure is being out sourced annually. India occupy big chunk out of that. There are few dedicate software testing companies in India. For that India needs about 16000 to 18000 testers.

OK you know the technology, know the opportunity and market. You have good tester with you. You have some money and want to start QA business. But what is missing in the picture. Marketing. This is where most guys going to miss the trick of whole concept of offshore business. This is one thing Nepalese people are missing for years and continue to miss for coming more years. Know the marketing; the mantra of offshore business.
