DXC Technology has opened an Innovation Centre in central London for partners and customers. The Kings Cross centre adds to DXC’s digital support network in the UK, which includes a Digital Transformation Centre in Newcastle, north-east England.
At Kings Cross, DXC digital technologists and enterprise solution experts will work with customers and partners to “deploy digital solutions at scale”.
The London centre showcases emerging digital technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT, blockchain and robotics. There will be a focus on sectors including government, energy and utilities, healthcare and life sciences, travel and transport, insurance, financial services and manufacturing.
“Our Innovation Centre will develop innovative solutions for clients in a rapidly changing digital era,” said Maruf Majed, vice president and general manager, DXC UK, Ireland, Israel, Middle East and Africa. “The centre creates opportunities for our clients and partners to gain valuable practical experience with digital technology in real-life business applications.”
The facility will draw from global teams of digital specialists who are working on “digital journey mapping” and the co-creation of leading-edge prototypes. The goal is to build enterprise-grade, secure and globally scalable solutions for rapid deployment in customer environments, said the IT services vendor.
Peter Almond, PwC Alliance Director, whose company is part of the DXC Partner Network, said: “The launch of the Innovation Centre provides PwC with a powerful extension to its own ecosystem of customer experience centres, and brings the ability to co-create innovative digital solutions that are rooted in the realities that come with deploying technology at scale across complex enterprise environments.”
DXC says it has 6,000 customers across enterprise and the public sector in 70 countries.
