IBM is recognized as the foremost initiator of application testing services. Over the past 3 years, IBM has been increasingly investing in R&D activities to strengthen its products and services portfolio. The company currently concentrates on re-defining its business aspects. IBM is focused on the adoption of organic and inorganic growth strategies to strengthen its position in the application testing services market. In July 2017, IBM X-Force launched new security testing practice areas focused on automotive security and IoT. Moreover, in February 2017 IBM X-Force launched the Red Portal, which is a cloud-based collaboration platform for customers and security professionals. This portal presents an end-to-end view of security testing programs. It helps customers monitor real-time testing projects, detect vulnerabilities across all assets, and acquire the general status of their managed testing program. Furthermore, in May 2017, IBM collaborated with Worksoft, a leading provider of automation software for high-velocity business process discovery and testing, to deliver a unified testing approach for SAP projects. All the above-mentioned development strategies helped the company expand its application testing services portfolio as well as enhance its customer base worldwide.
