Autify, Inc.は、米国トップアクセラレーター「Alchemist Accelerator」を日本人チームとして初めて卒業した、サンフランシスコ創業のスタートアップです。私たちは「技術の力で人々の創造性を高める」をミッションとして掲げ、AIを用いたソフトウェアのテスト自動化プラットフォーム「Autify」を開発・提供しています。

市場の変化が激しい昨今、ソフトウェアを素早くリリースすることが求められており、アジャイル開発が主流となってきました。実際にグローバルでは92%がアジャイル開発を採用しており、そのうち71%が週一回以上のリリースを希望しています。そのようなサイクルでは、人手の検証作業は時間がかかりすぎるため、自動化への移行が急務となっています。私たちのサービスは、そのような重大課題を解決し、顧客のソフトウェア開発における競争力を高めることができます。 QAのグローバル予算は120兆円にも登ると言われており、私たちはこの巨大なグローバルマーケットを勝ち取るため、日本のみならず海外への早急な展開をしていきます。
