Juniper Networks announced it has selected Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to beef up its product assurance process with artificial intelligence (AI) and automation.

Juniper is using TCS' AI-based Smart QE platform across its hardware and software security products. The TCS platform leverages contextual insights and predictive analytics to improve the quality and predictability of a product release.

TCS said its platform could automate root-cause analysis while providing continuous feedback to the various stakeholders based on data analytics.

Webinar: Remote Post Production In The Cloud

Video production companies across the world have traditionally been tethered to physical facilities, but with the advent of covid-19, remote post production capabilities are more important than ever. Join this webinar to learn more about how video producers can utilize Google Cloud infrastructure, along with partner applications, to develop a remote post production suite that brings your artists and editors together, no matter where they are.

The TCS platform will further Juniper Networks' adoption of DevOps approaches by implementing continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD.) Using CI/CD principles enables benefits such as faster time to market, continued product innovation, and improved decision making across the board.

With the continued proliferation of cloud-native architectures, Kubernetes and microservices, continuous delivery and continuous integration (CI/CD) have become key tools for service providers and vendors. In March, The Linux Foundation launched the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) to collaborate on the delivery of software tools.

A CI/CD framework is also being used by LF Networking's OPNFV to enable common network virtualization functions infrastructure (NFVi) for the testing of virtual network functions (VNFs.)
