Accenture has acquired artificial intelligence (AI) technology from Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc to strengthen the analytics and cognitive capabilities of its Accenture Touchless Testing Platform.
Real-Time Analytics Platform leverages AI in the form of machine learning, neural networks and natural language processing (NLP) to analyse every stage of the software testing life cycle, enabling users to make data-driven decisions that reduce defects, optimise test case execution and enhance the power of human decision-making in this process.
These capabilities complement the existing functionality of the Accenture Touchless Testing Platform to help enable extreme automation and usher in an era of AI-enabled services.
“Continuous testing is increasingly important as companies look to software as a means of competitive advantage,” says Kishore Durg, Senior Managing Director, Growth & Strategy and Global Testing Lead for Accenture Technology.
“With advances in AI and analytics, we can find inefficiencies and eliminate them, improving business productivity by up to 50%. The integration of Real-Time Analytics Platform will further enhance the AI-driven capabilities of the Accenture Touchless Testing Platform to help our clients increase productivity and agility.”
The Accenture Touchless Testing Platform also brings together open source, commercial and Accenture proprietary tools and algorithms to automate a robust, touchless testing process for software – all guided by artificial intelligence and analytics.
Sam Bhat, CEO, Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc. adds, “As more organisations embrace digital transformation, the demand for testing and quality assurance will only increase as it’s a critical component for ensuring new applications meet the demands of the business.”
Accenture also holds more than 250 patents and patent pending software testing applications.
