CSC managing director Seelan Nayagam says the new centre in its regional headquarters at Macquarie Park, Sydney, will serve as a hub to incubate technology, and is a ‘“prototyping sandbox” where clients will be able to “experience and test the viability of technology solutions firsthand before committing to a large scale implementation”.
“It will be a showcase for the very latest technology solutions from CSC and our partners.”
The innovation centre, which was officially opened by Victor Dominello, the NSW Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, showcases some of the industry’s leading-edge technology and applications in blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and virtual and augmented reality (AR).
• Insurance: 360Globalnet – An end-to-end digital claims solution
• Resources: DAQRI SMART HELMET and Microsoft’s latest HoloLens, taking augmented reality into the field and changing the industrial landscape
• Public Sector: SAP Hybris Public Sector Accelerator, giving citizens a consistent and secure digital experience across any device
• Healthcare: A new model of digital patient care, changing healthcare from episodic to integrated
• Banking: 21st Century Banking, giving customers the tools to make their financial lives easier.
In conjunction with the launch of the innovation Centre, CSC also announced a new regional Chief Technology Officer (CTO) group under Sam Johnston, which CSC says comprises seven leading subject matter experts responsible for executing CSC’s strategy for next-generation IT offerings and solutions within the ANZ region.
“Almost every C-level executive we engage with wants the assurance that their technology investment is strategically aligned and delivers the utmost value to their business, employees and customers,” Nayagam said.
“Our newly launched CTO group are the brain trust of CSC in ANZ. Their thought leadership and deep consulting capabilities will be critical in providing clients with the strategic direction necessary to ensure success on their digital transformation journeys.”
