The results of the study published in July 2011 confirmed that of the 100 of the Fortune 500 companies studied:

"The Forrester study validates our understanding of the market", said Sashi Reddi, founder and CEO, AppLabs. "Further we are seeing our customers today finding great value in our offerings that embed our proprietary eTAP™, enterprise Test Automation Platform, that enables large organizations to take a structured view to enterprise test automation and reap immense ROI."

Also, in the study a few testing-only and multidisciplined vendors seem to stand out in terms of recognition and engagement, and the large Tier 1 Indian vendors are not among the top five. Additionally, testing consulting ranked as a high interest for this group of companies, which was further emphasized by the fact that 100% of those spending $1 billion or more on testing use testing consultants.
