Reply has set up an observatory on AI-powered Software Development Tools to follow the evolution and test the technologies and products that implement AI in the various stages of SDLC. Reply uses a four-phase cycle (Scouting, Analysis, Testing and Consolidation) in continuous iteration, to refine its expertise within the evolving sectors. This showed that there is a vast number of tools capable of disrupting the classic approach to each stage of the Software Life Cycle.
In order to guarantee maximum effectiveness and accuracy in evaluating and planning the adoption of an AI tool, Reply has developed a dedicated approach that focuses on the customers. Reply involves the customers in the selection process by sharing the knowledge acquired from the AI tools sector and explaining the practical evidence on the available solutions.
The base element of this approach is the development of an AI Lab: a cross-functional team of resources made up of Reply experts and customer representatives who, based on an iterative process of testing and validating the AI Tools on real customer use cases, work together to identify the solution that can best respond to the specific needs of the customers. Based on these lab outcomes Reply then launches pilot projects.
