comment BDD to replace the test teams work - how best to do it?
QuickTest pro is a good tool if it's used correctly. The good thing about it is that it can identify objects (buttons etc.) via a number of properties, if one isn't found, it reverts to the next and so on. We found that getting buy in from development to make the product more automatable was the way to go (e.g. ensuring all controls have static ID's that don't change between builds/minor versions). QTP's record and playback is quite bad, we found that hand writing the tests made them much more maintainable and likely to work in newer versions.

comment Which areas( I.T.) are mostly affected by Outsourcing?
I would switch QA & Development in your list. QA is far more likely to be outsource in my experience. The last thing you want to do is outsource the in depth technical knowledge that comes from actually developing the software.

comment How do you QA and release software quickly with a large team?
+1 for "Repetitious manual testing is simply unacceptable". Automated testing is the way to go, the earlier this is realised in a project, the better. I've seen may automation projects fail due to the product not being designed with automation in mind. I'd recommend this book as a good starting point - amazon.com/Implementing-Automated-Software-Testing-Raising/dp/…
