Accenture has expanded the capabilities of its automation platform, Accenture myWizard, to help companies to disrupt every aspect of the application lifecycle and drive business value.
Accenture has bolstered the platform’s capabilities by integrating artificial intelligence (AI), automation, analytics and DevOps, through investments, technology enhancements and expanded ecosystem collaboration.
With over 50 patents and patent applications, Accenture myWizard enables organizations to move beyond driving productivity and cost reduction in their technology applications and focus on infusing speed and intelligence in their applications strategy, accelerating business growth and innovation.
“Executing a comprehensive intelligent automation strategy can significantly improve an enterprise’s business performance by harnessing the power of AI, analytics, agile and DevOps. We have expanded the capabilities of Accenture myWizard so that clients can up their game through automation and data-centric decision-making,” said Bhaskar Ghosh, group chief executive, Accenture Technology Services.
“Together with our leading workforce transformation and technology services capabilities, the enhanced Accenture myWizard platform forms our holistic approach to offer clients a comprehensive, intelligent automation strategy and helps enable them to create new value at any stage of their automation journey.”
Accenture myWizard is taking its AI capabilities to the next level by embedding intelligent automation and analytics into every step of the application lifecycle.
This includes numerous bots that apply AI to resolve industry scenarios. For instance, virtual advisor “Collette” uses cognitive science, AI and design to help establish customers’ lifestyle and preferences and provide mortgage advice. She helps companies stay compliant by providing mandated credit counselling at a fraction of the usual cost – up to 95 percent less.
By capitalizing on the power of data and AI through Accenture myWizard, companies can build a data strategy that ensures data capture, access and quality.
With Data Lake repositories that hold data, Accenture myWizard pulls information from internal and external sources to not only reveal potential issues before they cause problems, but also to look at the root causes of the issues.
Accenture myWizard also integrates proprietary and third-party assets related to Agile and DevOps (such as Agile Scrum Master and Accenture DevOps Platform) to accelerate automation in new aspects of the application lifecycle and support delivery.
This further strengthens the intersection between development teams and operations teams, resulting in deployments to market and efficiency and enabling companies to sustain and create competitive edge, enter new markets and scale their business.
Besides proprietary investments, Accenture myWizard draws on technology ecosystem innovations. Leveraging its architecture, Accenture myWizard integrates AI solutions and other tools from alliance partners such as Amazon, Akamai, Automation Anywhere, Blue Prism, Google/ TensorFlow, IBM Technologies, Microsoft, ServiceNow, SOASTA, Splunk, Tricentis and other open source tools.
With more than 20,000 automation and IT assets, the platform acts as an integrator across tools and client systems, providing a data fabric that cuts across IT and business data.
Additionally, Accenture myWizard is now available in a service integration version, a micro-services architecture-based solution that can be deployed in a client environment, either on-premise or on the client’s private or public cloud.
The platform’s architecture connects with multiple data sources to gather information, and provide insights that not only help in IT optimizations but also in delivering business initiatives.
