These days every other company is having a testing competency or planning to have one.. Be it a captive center or a services company and to some extent product companies as well.. Why is it necessary or good to have a testing competency and if its good to have why it took so long for the companies to adopt this.. As per my thoughts the following points contributes to that.

  1. Complexity of Application : day by day the applications are getting complex and testing is becoming more difficult and challenging. So to have a quality testing you need automation and different types of testing with innovative approach.
  2. Knowledge Sharing : with competency the lessons learned can be shared with other teams and people. And also new techniques and frameworks can be shared and taught easily.
  3. Faster Support: Support to projects can be done faster since the pool of people are available.
  4. Better Crisis Management: Since good and trained resources are always available the crisis in projects can be identified faster and more easily.
  5. Resource Attrition: Key people leaving the organization can be addressed better and planned since knowledge is no more with one person,its being shared.
  6. Customer Confidence: Since the company is investing in research and development customer gets a confidence while dealing with the company.
  7. Continuous improvement : Since there is one dedicated team doing research on one-thing the process, technology continuously getting updated .
  8. Training Cost: Training cost can be reduced by having in house training rather then going for expensive outside training.
  9. Employee Satisfaction: Since employees got a chance to work of research they also feel satisfied.

I think these are the points which attracts companies to start competency.. Let me know if I am wrong anywhere or missed some points.

Please provide your valuable inputs.
