Vietnam is envisioned as Asia's Next Software Testing Tiger. That was the statement of Nguyen Quoc Hung, LogiGear Vietnam CEO/President at the press briefing on 22 August 2008 in Ho Chi Minh City. Software testing is an empirical investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of a software product or service in the context in which it is intended to operate. The intent of software testing is finding software bugs or errors to ensure optimum software performance for various industries.
LogiGear is a leader in software testing in the US. According to Hung, India is Asia's undisputed market leader of offshore services, but Vietnam can offer fierce competition as a possible destination to become Asia's next possible tiger in this field. Vietnam's edge is hinged on its skill-based approach that produces a workforce with advanced software testing and automation skills higher than those of China and India.
Software testing market is a niche segment within the ITO category with global market size estimated at US $6.1 billion dollars in 2005 (Gartner Group, 2005).
