Advancing Digital.ai’s machine learning capabilities, the analytics engine will correlate data from the Digital.ai platform and other third-party tools used throughout customers’ value streams to create a unified data model. This unified data model will equip stakeholders from C-level executives to DevOps managers with deep AI-driven insights across all DevOps disciplines, providing the visibility they need to inform tactical and strategic decision making.
Customer-facing mobile, web, and desktop experiences are critically important pillars of the customer journey. Experitest enhances the Digital.ai Value Stream Platform with secure, integrated quality capabilities that reduce risk, enabling enterprises to provide their customers satisfying, error-free experiences across all devices and browsers. Experitest’s continuous quality solutions seamlessly integrate with best-in-class tools throughout the DevOps pipeline to allow enterprises to rapidly deliver highly protected, quality applications at-speed and at-scale.
