Chennai , March 30

MERCURY Interactive Corporation, the US-based provider of automated software-testing solutions, plans to start authorised training centres to be run by franchisees for software testing in India.

The company hopes to have one or two centres in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad initially, according to Mr T. Srinivasan, Managing Director, Mercury India.

Software testing as a profession is catching up in India, he said. There are about 10,000 software-testing professionals in India, but there is a demand for 18,000 such professionals this year. The top four software firms — Wipro, Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys and Satyam — together employ over 7,000 such professionals. Mercury, which had revenues of $685.5 million in 2004, is approaching educational institutions to train students on Mercury testing tools.
