Accenture says it has launched its first Innovation Hub in Bengaluru, a facility to help clients transform their businesses for the digital world.
The Innovation Hub in Bengaluru offers clients access to Accenture’s industry knowledge, technology capabilities and business acumen in more than 40 industries, applied in a live technology delivery environment — enabling them to experience innovation at scale through customized visits, design-thinking workshops, co-innovation workshops and cross-industry innovation.
This location gives clients “hands on” access to all six elements of the Accenture Innovation Architecture – Accenture Research, Accenture Ventures, Accenture Labs, Accenture Studios, Accenture Innovation Centers and Accenture Delivery Centers. The hub enables clients to identify and develop emerging trends and technologies and then quickly prototype, scale and implement innovative solutions.
The Innovation Hub comprises 440,000 square feet of space throughout ten floors. More than 4,000 people will work at the hub.
“Technology has a huge multiplier effect and enables organizations to drive competitive differentiation, transform customer experiences, create innovative business models and achieve breakthrough business results,” said Bhaskar Ghosh, group chief executive at Accenture Technology Services. “At the Innovation Hub in Bengaluru, we are pioneering a shift in traditional technology strategy, development and delivery models to an approach that leverages ‘the New’ to help clients innovate more quickly.”
The Innovation Hub features Accenture’s capabilities in artificial intelligence, intelligent automation, quantum computing, machine learning, robotics, Internet of Things, data and analytics, intelligent applications, intelligent platforms, liquid applications management, and experience-led transformation, among others. It will also leverage Accenture’s innovation capabilities and broader ecosystem, including Accenture Labs, Liquid Studios, Digital Studios, Interactive Studios, Innovation Centers and Cyber Fusion Centers.
