Global professional services firm Accenture has launched its new Liquid Studio innovation centre in Sydney as part of what it says is an accelerated innovation investment plan to be rolled out in the Australian market.

Accenture says the Liquid Studio in Sydney is the first of several new initiatives that it is investing in across Australia, with plans to expand investments in training, hiring and partnerships.

The Liquid Studio in Sydney will collaborate with Accenture Liquid Studios in Silicon Valley, Paris, Milan, London, Kronberg, Singapore and other locations, and with the Accenture Labs, where the company incubates and prototypes new concepts through applied R&D projects.

“The next wave of Australian growth and competitiveness will come from continuous innovation, and I am proud Accenture Australia is working closely with our clients to fuel innovation and solve critical business problems at speed and scale,” said Bob Easton, chairman and senior managing director for Accenture Australia and New Zealand.

Easton says the Liquid Studio accelerates innovation by applying rapid development approaches including Agile methodologies and DevOps, and experimenting with disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and “serverless” architectures.

“This allows clients to reduce development time from months to days and shorten the time to business impact. The capabilities of the Liquid Studio will be supplemented by Accenture’s alliance ecosystem, start-ups, and others.”

Justin Baird, managing director for Accenture Australia innovation and research and development, says that through immersive workshops, organisations will receive “tangible, hands-on experience of how their business can benefit from the most disruptive technologies, such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality”.

“By leveraging agile teams, a start-up culture and multi-speed, microservice and cloud-based architectures, organisation will see more value quickly and easily.”
