Hi I read an intresting article on Indiatimes wrt Software testing..

Software Testing, also referred to as software quality assurance, has come up as a rewarding career in the computing industry
Companies need people to write software programmes, also called applications, but they also need professionals to discover defects in these applications, before the customer does. And it’s here that the need for software testers is felt.

According to recent reports, the software testing market is estimated at around $13 billion of which one billion is accounted for by Indian companies. Software testing already accounts for close to 30% of the software development market and according to estimates, the market opportunity for the Indian offshore software testing companies is currently $2 billion, estimated to rise to $8 billion by 2008.
