Exactpro wins award for Most Innovative Professional Development Initiative in A-Team Group Innovation Awards 2024

This year’s Innovation Awards organised by A-Team Group have named Exactpro’s ISTQB®-accredited Certified Tester–AI Testing (CT-AI) training course the Most Innovative Professional Development Initiative. The annual awards celebrate innovative projects and teams across vendor and practitioner communities that make use of new and emerging technologies and techniques to deliver high-value solutions for financial institutions in capital markets.

Exactpro’s AI Testing training course provides a clear benchmark for the professional competence needed to operate machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) systems and assess their quality. The course is the next step in Exactpro’s long-term strategy to use its R&D to empower both clients and the larger fintech community with the tools and knowledge they need to build higher-quality software leveraging the most recent technological advancements. Now open for pre-registration, the course is set to be available in Autonomous, Guided, and Enterprise plans. It supplements the official ISTQB® syllabus with interactive materials, industry examples and use cases, as well as hands-on sessions.

Validating the quality of AI systems is one of the main challenges technology companies face at the moment. Exactpro is uniquely positioned at the intersection of testing non-deterministic systems – that, in fact, both AI-based and any large-scale financial systems are – and data science expertise acquired while developing our own AI Testing approach. We are honoured to receive the award that reinforces Exactpro’s position as a technology and thought leader in this emerging space. The team and I truly appreciate such high recognition of our work by the A-Team Group and the fact that the awards have turned the spotlight on the importance of AI Testing certification.

— Iosif Itkin, CEO and co-Founder, Exactpro

Many congratulations to Exactpro in winning the Most Innovative Professional Development Initiative award in recognition of their achievement in delivering high levels of innovation to financial institutions. They should be deservedly proud of this accomplishment.
