In a bid to enable productivity improvement for clients, Accenture has announced the global launch of its intelligent automation platform, Accenture myWizard that enables more innovative and efficient application services consisting of systems integration and application development and management. The platform combines Accenture’s industry and technology assets and business knowledge across 40 industries with intelligent automation, including artificial intelligence at its core.

According to the press release, Accenture myWizard employs a team of virtual agents, powered by artificial intelligence, to analyze data, identify patterns. This guides human workers to make better informed decisions that can drive highly impactful business performance which can include significant improvement in application quality, cost reduction and speed to market. Additionally, the new platform brings together numerous proprietary industry assets, including intelligent and analytics tools and methods, as well as tools from across Accenture’s alliance partner ecosystem. Organizations can use Accenture myWizard to become up to approximately 60 percent more productive by automating task-related work and enabling them to focus on more strategic work.

myWizard has a number of virtual agents that use machine learning to collaborate with human co-workers to manage projects. They apply analytics to support business goals, advise on a range of judgment-based tasks and monitor numerous aspects of agile development. The Intelligent Data Scientist helps identify data patterns and mines program information to provide IT and business users with the ability to make more insight-based decisions. Virtual Testing Savant provides advice to human testers on a wide-range of judgment-based tasks, such as test planning, test coverage, prioritization and even staffing. It provides test artifacts for reuse and solutions based on past fixes, helping testers spend less time preparing and fixing and more time fine-tuning applications to improve business performance. The Virtual Scrum Master monitors numerous aspects of agile development projects consisting of requirements, releases, metrics and resources, alerting the project manager of any potential issues and providing possible solutions, said the release.

myWizard is hosted on Microsoft Azure. The platform’s liquid, plug-and-play architecture makes it future compatible with the ability to add in new capabilities as artificial intelligence matures. Over the past six months myWizard has been deployed to more than 100 Accenture clients globally. Accenture is training approximately 3,000 professionals in Accenture myWizard and plans to deploy the intelligent automation platform to more than 200 clients by the end of August 2016.

According to Bhaskar Ghosh, Group Chief Executive, Accenture Technology Services, “Accenture is recognized for its extensive industry knowledge and technology capabilities. By bringing leading technology together in an automation platform and enabling it with artificial intelligence, we are poised to dramatically impact productivity, decision making and cost and operational improvements for our clients. IT organizations and leaders are under intense pressure to operate with greater speed and manage increasing complexity, challenges that cannot be sustainably addressed by simply increasing headcount.”

Adding further, Ghosh said, “We need to enable people to do more with technology, to achieve greater speed and scale. That’s why we believe intelligent automation is the essential co-worker for the digital age. Accenture myWizard supports our people-first automation strategy by helping humans do more complex and creative problem-solving.”
