New Delhi: Accenture has acquired an artificial intelligence (AI) technology from Bay Area, California-based Real Time Analytics platform, which will integrate into the Accenture Touchless Testing platform, further strengthening its analytics and cognitive capabilities. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Real Time Analytics platform leverages AI in the form of machine learning, neural networks and natural language processing (NLP) to analyze every stage of the software testing life cycle, enabling users to make data-driven decisions that reduce defects, optimize 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.
"With advances in AI and analytics we can find inefficiencies and eliminate them, improving business productivity by up to 50 percent. 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," said senior managing director, Growth and Strategy and global testing lead for Accenture Technology, Kishore Durg.
The integration of the Real Time Analytics Platform is Accenture's latest investment in differentiated AI testing capabilities. Earlier this year, Accenture launched new services for testing AI systems powered by a "Teach and Test" methodology designed to help companies validate the safety, reliability and transparency of their AI systems.
Accenture holds more than 250 patents and patent pending applications related to software testing. Real Time Analytics Platform's patent pending AI for Testing application is a major technological breakthrough in the field of software testing.
"We're excited about the value our platform will bring to their already robust offerings in this space," said CEO Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc., Sam Bhat.
