LIVING INNOVATION

The Innovation Hub

It’s not about predicting the future. It’s about inventing it. Our work—by its very nature—is disrupting industries, reshaping business models and changing lives. Across our business, we ask our people to constantly innovate how they work and think.

The Innovation Hub is a physical space in our London office, where we showcase some of our proof-of-concepts that have been created by our Innovation team in the UK. The Innovation Programme is an incubator exploring new technologies to solve real-world problems. Learning through doing, the programme drives an innovative culture, by co-creating with our clients, our business, our partners and disruptors to help them define, and realise, their visions. The use of rapid prototyping creates working proof-of-concepts using the latest emerging technology. The Innovation Hub is where some of the prototypes are showcased. This page allows you to see what has been previously displayed in the Innovation Hub.

SHOWCASE

Industry X.0 – It’s not next, it’s now. The Digital Reinvention of Industry.

Successive waves of digital technologies are enabling manufacturing businesses to design and deliver hyper-personalised experiences, achieve unimaginable levels of efficiency and capture new growth. These technologies are ushering in a new era that we call ‘Industry X.0’ and it comes with a new industrial workforce. The latest refresh of the London Innovation Hub will see a new IX.0 showcase in place demonstrating these technologies and innovations that Accenture is developing and implementing at clients.

Request a tour of the IX.0 Innovation Zone, or visit the website for more information on Industry X.0.
