American Financial Technology Awards (AFTAs) 2023 announced its winners on 1 December. Exactpro has been recognised as the 'Most Innovative Third-Party Technology Vendor – Infrastructure, Outsourcing, and Managed Services'.
Hosted by WatersTechnology, the AFTAs celebrate ‘excellence in the deployment and management of financial technology within the asset management and investment banking communities’. Represented in 30 categories spread across 2 category streams – End-user and Vendor categories – the AFTAs honour leading industry players and technology providers both with a regional and global reach.
Exactpro’s strategic goal is to empower clients with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed at every stage of their software delivery process while staying compliant and resilient to disruption. As a technology vendor, we provide more than just a test framework and the software testing services around it – we have the power to inform, advise, guide and help foster more efficient processes and achieve better operational resilience. The most recent technology advancements have also enabled us to enhance our industry-recognised system modelling approach with AI capabilities.
Our AI-enabled software testing practice is a testament to Exactpro being attuned to the industry’s changing needs and the growing demand in thorough quality assessment of the ever-evolving transaction processing systems. The approach enables us to produce extensive system coverage while reducing time-to-market and costs associated with test execution.
To remain competitive and compliant, we are constantly fine-tuning our test data generation, test execution, and test results analysis algorithms to find more effective ways to keep our clients' systems robust and resilient in the face of constant regulatory, geopolitical, infrastructure- or user-driven change. We recognise that realising the potential of AI is critical in achieving greater efficiency. We very much appreciate this recognition as we continue to respond to our clients’ need to innovate – without compromising quality.
