Accenture opens its first UK-based Liquid Studio in London

Global professional service company, Accenture has opened its first UK-based Liquid Studio in London to help speed up innovation and software development cycles. It aims to give clients an open environment in which they can accelerate their next phase of digital transformation. According to the company, the innovative technologies including artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) at the Liquid Studio help organizations to become more agile around their operations and customer experience. The clients can turn concepts into products, taking days to achieve what used to take months. Senior Managing Director of Accenture Technology, Emma McGuigan stated that London has emerged as an amazing environment where innovation, speed and scale all come together.
“The leading digital businesses understand how to leverage innovative technologies and have the capability to move quickly when changes are needed. Opening a Liquid Studio so close to where these companies are based in London will help them build digital experiences and unlock new value. Liquid Studios are an integral part of the Accenture Innovation Architecture, serving as a vital connection point between rapid application prototyping and practical, real world software deployment,” she said.
The company revealed that its clients will work alongside its engineers to use contemporary architectures, reusable components and intelligent automation tools. The Agile and DevOps development principles would help in speeding the prototype and custom application creation which would shorten the time to real business impact. The company also claims that it helps in developing apps which helps to deliver on Accenture’s Future of Applications vision of liquid, intelligent and connected software. The new Liquid Studio in London is part of Accenture’s alliance ecosystem and has the capabilities of AI and cognitive processes, along with offering IoT, cloud, blockchain and security among other essential technology solutions. It aims to use the company’s open innovation to take cutting-edge technologies and digital expertise from the startup community and into development for clients. The London site will collaborate with the Accenture Liquid Studios in Silicon Valley, Paris, Milan, Nantes and Kronberg, and with the Accenture Labs, where the company incubates and prototypes new concepts through applied R&D projects. Accenture plans to open more Liquid Studios around the world in 2017.
