Top software testing skills that are high on demand
With software testing becoming more advanced and demand increasing, there is a need for reskilling the workforce as well.
Software testing is not what it was decade ago. In the last few years, it has transformed and has become part of boardroom conversations thanks to shift in new age technologies.
Srikanth Chakkilam, Chief Executive Officer, Cigniti Technologies, a specialised testing firm, told Moneycontrol that with the shift to new age testing areas there is a need for reskilling in this space as people will have to code and have knowledge of scripting language such as Python.
Specialised testing includes automation, cybersecurity, cloud migration and blockchain. According to a NelsonHall, overall software testing market and specialised testing services would touch $48 billion and $30 billion by 2023, a growth of 5.6 percent per annum.
