HCM City (PRWEB) November 20, 2010
A survey of the world’s top 100 outsourcing cities has ranked Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, at number six in the emerging city’s list.
The Tholons Global Services Top 100: A Study of the Top Outsourcing Cities looked at locations in 49 countries across 10 defined regions. Cities were benchmarked against six broad categories, each with its own weighting. These categories were: skills and scalability, savings, business environment, operational environment, business risk and non-business environment.
LogiGear, the world leader in providing software testing services to many fortune 500 companies, has operated a Test Centre of Excellence in Ho Chi Minh City since 2005. LogiGear’s Vice President of Sales, Joe Hughes, said Vietnam had proven to be the ideal location to enhance the company’s testing capabilities and efficiency.
“We are able to make use of global resources to provide the appropriate mix of onshore management and low-cost offshore resources to drive down costs, while still focusing on the critical importance of faster time-to-market,” he said.
LogiGear CEO Hung Nguyen noted that the company had made significant efforts to lead and implement software-testing education and training programs, both in-house and in partnership with local universities.
“Immediately after being hired, our engineers begin progressive English communication and software testing classes that will eventually incorporate such high-level skills as advanced software testing, project management, training-the-trainer, and working effectively with customers.”
The company has also developed the LogiGear Certified Tester Program (LCTP) at Ho Chi Minh University of Science, which helps add software testing curriculum to the existing computer science program.
Additionally, LogiGear recently announced plans to translate and release several of its software-testing books into Vietnamese, the first of which is “Testing Applications on the Web” translated and published in September. This book, in addition to teaching an individual how to test on the web, is also designed to help engineers make career decisions about software testing.
“For Vietnam, it is critical to enhance existing high-technology educational programs, which in turn help satisfy the demand for high-quality software-testing resources in the global IT services market,” Nguyen said.
