“Accenture’s proven capabilities across the full-stack of software engineering services — covering strategy, to build, to user experience — has helped establish it as the industry leader in Enterprise software and User Experience Engineering,” said Sidhant Rastogi, partner and practice head at Zinnov. “The firm’s positioning is further fortified by its legacy of building and operating SaaS products and platforms. Its proprietary solutions (Accenture myWizard®, Touchless Testing Platform, Platform-in-a-Box) enable automation and DevOpS; thereby, reducing time-to-market for enterprises.”
