Insource or Outsource Testing: Understanding Your Context
As world trade becomes global, goods are produced and are services performed everywhere. Software development services are no exception to this trend. Indeed, they are leading these changes because the cost of developing or testing software in one place may be substantially lower than in another. Yet cost isn't all there is to the equation-you must also consider value. What do you need to know to outsource successfully? While testers offshore might cost less than they cost locally, why might it be more valuable to insource testing? In this interactive and experiential session, Michael Bolton relates his experience with outsourcing and insourcing software testing models and leads exercises to explore the advantages and disadvantages of each. Join Michael and your peers to learn how understanding organizational context is vital to the insourcing versus outsourcing decision for testing.
