Verint’s Intelligent Virtual Assistant solutions, part of its self-service cloud, surpassed other vendors in the ranking categories of Enabling Platforms and Technologies, Enterprise IA maturity and Track Record. Opus Research also cited Verint favorably for the company’s future plans and vision in the space.
