PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 22: Accenture global professional services company logo on Czech headquarters building on May 22, 2017 in Prague, Czech republic. In 2016, Fortune magazine named it the worlds most admired Information Technology Services company.

The technology will be integrated into the Accenture Touchless Testing Platform to strengthen its analytics and cognitive capabilities.

Accenture has acquired an AI technology from Real Time Analytics Platform, Inc. The newly acquired technology will be integrated into Accenture’s Touchless testing platform to strengthen its analytics and cognitive capabilities.

Real Time Analytics platform utilizes AI as machine learning, natural language processing and neural networks to analyze each stage of software testing so that users can use the insights gleaned from the collected data to optimize test case execution, reduce defects and improve human decision making. These tools will complement Accenture’s Touchless Testing platform to help speed the adoption of extreme automation and AI-enabled services.
