Accenture expands touchless testing platform with AI technology from Real Time Analytics Platform

Kishore Durg of Accenture

Accenture acquired an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology from Bay Area, California-based Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc. The technology will be integrated 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 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,” said 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 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.

Sam Bhat, CEO, Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc. added, “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. We’re excited about the value our platform will bring to their already robust offerings in this space.”

The Accenture Touchless Testing Platform brings together leading 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.

The platform allows testing teams to easily integrate tools from leading players, along with key Accenture innovations, to bring new enterprise software solutions to market faster and with higher quality. The platform can be deployed independently or as part of Accenture myWizard.
