Accenture opens Future Camp in Zurich
The Future Camp comprises a team of innovation experts, designers, developers, technologists and strategists, as Accenture reported in a press release. The innovation lab aims to help clients of the consulting firm devise new strategies in order to keep pace with the ever-changing digital environment. It is also a way of bringing clients together with startups. New products are to be developed and tested directly in the Future Camp, which will then enable clients to start using the digital technologies more quickly.
In addition to the Future Camp, the company gives its clients in the financial services sector access to the Accenture Cloud Innovation Center for Financial Services. This is said to offer the agility required for conceiving sector-specific cloud-based innovations quickly and cost-effectively.
Alongside the Future Camp, Accenture recently also opened an Accenture Innovation Hub and a Liquid Studio in Zurich. Among other services, these support clients in the development of apps that are based on artificial intelligence, blockchain technology and cloud.
“Our clients expect us to guide them through their digital transformation journeys, and this starts with reimagining the customer experience,” said Thomas Meyer, country managing director of Accenture Switzerland, in a press release back in March. “By setting up the Innovation Hub as a co-location and bringing diverse teams together, we enable easy collaboration and rapid ideation across a variety of Accenture’s disciplines and skill sets from which our clients will benefit as they seek to drive customer-centric innovation,” he explained. ssp
