HCL introduces AI-powered cloud platform

HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, announced the launch of HCL TURBO, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based, end-to-end testing automation platform which can be deployed in the cloud.

Aimed at communication service providers, HCL TURBO integrates with existing testing tools and equipment and delivers test planning in which internet bots utilise AI and analytics to plan test scenarios and provide automatic test orchestration.

It’s entering the market at a time when product testing, previously handled by device manufacturers, is now the responsibility of service providers.

For instance, with the recent introduction of software-defined networks and network functions virtualisation, service providers are responsible for testing whenever there is a software update.

“The emergence of virtualised and software-defined networks has significantly complicated network testing and fragmented accountability,” said GH Rao, President of Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies, in a press release.

“HCL is directly addressing this shift by introducing an AI-based test lifecycle automation platform that seamlessly integrates into existing testing environments.”

Rao also noted HCL’s new platform can be deployed in hybrid environments.
