Appvance Empowers New AI-Driven Testing Practice From PwC Australia
Appvance, the inventor and leader in AI-driven testing technology announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with PwC Australia. PwC Australia will offer Appvance IQ (AIQ) in Australia and build an AI-driven testing practice around AIQ.
AIQ is the world’s only AI-driven unified test automation system with patented Machine Learning technologies that revolutionize the software QA process. Leveraging 19 machine learning methods, AIQ supports both web and native mobile apps and can autonomously generate thousands of test scripts in a matter of minutes, identifying bugs by itself with no regular human intervention.
Andre Liao, CEO of Appvance, commenting on the partnership: “PwC Australia recognizes the value in cost, time and agility that AIQ’s AI-driven productivity brings to the QA process. We are gratified that their vision of how to exploit this opportunity is now centered on AIQ – their commitment to Australian enterprises will help spread the use of AIQ across Down Under.”
Tessa Smith, Partner at PwC Australia commented: “In one example, we were able to bring 300% increase in test case coverage, at up to 80% less cost, developed in a fraction of the time standard automated testing takes. This is about accelerating digital agility for our clients.”
Gartner predicts that by 2024, three quarters of large enterprises will be using AI-enabled test automation tools that support continuous testing across the different stages of the DevOps life cycle. Test automation has been difficult for decades, in part because test scripts need as much maintenance as the application being tested. AIQ disrupts this old model – eliminating most scripting and maintenance – thereby improving application coverage from an average of under 10% to near 100% in certain cases, while driving down QA time to an hour or so from days or weeks.
“Appvance is the only company in the world that has attained Level 5 autonomy, defined as self-generating tests which are able to validate complex actions, data or elements autonomously at or above human capabilities to do so. The breakthroughs our team has accomplished over the years can dramatically improve DevOps speed leveraging AI, making the unthinkable dream a reality for our customers and partners, said Liao.”
