Testing as a Service (or TaaS) is an outsourcing model in which an independent service provider undertakes testing activities instead of a company, providing ready access to the right tools, experts, and automation test environments.
How Does Testing as a Service Work?
TaaS can assume various shapes and forms, but the basic principle remains consistent. For example, a company engages an external service provider to conduct testing, which is typically utilized for automated processes (since they require massive amounts of resources and effort if done manually) and may suggest a single portion of the testing. If the business lacks the necessary resources (e.g., technology) to conduct a thorough checkup on its own, it may also consider utilizing software testing as a service model.
