Accenture Recognized as a Leader in Global Continuous Testing by Independent Research Firm

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a Leader in Forrester’s latest
report on global continuous testing services. The Forrester Wave™:
Global Continuous Testing Service Providers, Q1 2019 states that, “for
Accenture, testing is scriptless — full stop.”

Accenture believes that application delivery has shifted from
large-scale, project-based system implementations to a more continuous
evolution of IT systems. This means software testers must evolve to
become quality engineers that use real-time, insight-driven approaches,
augmented by artificial intelligence, analytics and autonomous
frameworks—a vision outlined in a recent
Accenture whitepaper
.

According to the Forrester report, “end-to-end automation is vital.”
Forrester measured nine of the most significant continuous testing
providers in terms of practices, process, accelerators and, critically,
talent. The report states that Accenture “provides impressive artificial
intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-based accelerators that
implement many of the emerging use cases of AI in testing: from upfront
intelligent quality thinking, to automation and optimization of
test-case design, to smart creation and execution of tests.”

“It’s time for a complete reboot in software testing methodology,” said
Jeff Wilkinson, global intelligent testing services lead for Accenture.
“We believe being listed as a Leader in this Forrester Wave report on
Global Continuous Testing Service Providers validates our strategy of
helping clients apply new and innovative technologies that shorten
service delivery cycles. We want our clients to become more agile and
intelligent, becoming digital disruptors in their industry.”

The report also notes that, “Clients working with Accenture should
leverage its innovative AI-based accelerators to optimize and automate
testing.” This includes tools such as the Accenture
Touchless Testing Platform
, which combines artificial intelligence,
machine learning and more to provide quality engineers with the tools
they need to operate more efficiently and effectively.
