SHANGHAI, China; May 26, 2019– Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has opened its Greater China Digital Hub in Shanghai, Accenture’s second innovation hub in Greater China, to help local enterprise clients reinvent their products and services, reimagine their business models, industrialize innovations at speed and achieve new levels of efficiency.

The new Digital Hub specializes in Industry X.0, which is how Accenture defines the digital reinvention of industry. It brings latest thinking and capabilities from Accenture to clients, including digital engineering; digital manufacturing; smart connected products and services; and digital sales and marketing.

The Digital Hub is designed to take clients through a wholistic innovation process to scale digital innovation. Clients will experience immersive demonstrations of digital technologies and use cases; collaborate with Accenture teams to ideate and prototype new products, services and business models; and embed the new innovations into their businesses.

The Digital Hub will also collaborate with an extensive range of ecosystem partners, which will help clients to tap into Shanghai’s robust innovation ecosystem.

“We are very excited to open our Digital Hub in Shanghai, China’s growth engine, which attracts world-class talent and enterprises,” said Wei Zhu, chairman of Accenture in Greater China. “We are ‘in China, for China,’ and are building a more robust innovation ecosystem for local clients. Following the launch of the Accenture Innovation Hub in Shenzhen last month, which brings world-class applied R&D capabilities to tap into the technology innovation in the region, the opening of the Industry X.0-focused Digital Hub in Shanghai will help Chinese companies apply innovation at scale and accelerate their digital transformation.”

The Digital Hub brings together end-to-end capabilities and integral components of the Accenture Innovation Architecture, including:

  • Accenture Liquid Studio, where clients can design and rapidly develop prototypes of products and services alongside Accenture teams of industry and technology experts.
  • Accenture Innovation Center, which helps clients take advantage of digital technologies, such as extended reality (AR/VR/MR), artificial intelligence, IoT, digital twins and automation, to transform core industrial operations, worker and customer experiences, and business models. It is part of Accenture’s global Industry X.0 Innovation Network of more than 20 facilities.
  • Accenture Delivery Center, which industrializes the delivery of Accenture innovations while unlocking the power of New IT and transforming business processes.

“Bringing digital innovations to life is crucial for our clients to create their next wave of growth. The Accenture Greater China Digital Hub will be a destination for Chinese clients across industries to turn innovative concepts into scaled actions,” said Yu Yi, Digital Lead for Accenture Greater China. “By applying our Industry X.0 approach, businesses can unlock new business value in the core of their R&D, engineering, production, manufacturing and business support.”

Accenture’s Greater China Digital Hub is located in Changyang Campus of Yangpu district, an innovation-driven zone in the city of Shanghai. It joins Accenture’s extensive global network of Innovation Hubs and Digital Hubs in Bengaluru, India; Canberra, Australia; Dublin (The Dock), Ireland; Madrid, Spain; Shenzhen, China; Singapore; Tokyo, Japan; Zurich, Switzerland; and North America (Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Houston; New York; San Francisco; Seattle; Washington, D.C. and Toronto).
