Global professional services firm Accenture announced on 7 November that it has both invested in and formed a strategic partnership with data analytics firm Quantexa
In the statement, Accenture said its minority investment will enable Quantexa to drive development of its AI-based entity resolution and network analytics technology with support from Accenture Applied Intelligence.
The software will assist clients with combatting financial crime through enhanced access to actionable insights.

Quantexa CEO Vishal Marria added:
“We are delighted to be working with Accenture to deliver and scale our technology to help solve our clients’ biggest data challenges.
