Capgemini helps UK firms use AI, bots and blockchains

London joins eight other countries to host Capgemini's Applied Innovation Exchange

Capgemini plans to make it easier for companies to embed AI, bots and blockchains into their businesses by launching the Applied Innovation Exchange.

The Exchange will give businesses access to Capgemini's network of partners, experts and other resources to help them realise the potential of cutting-edge innovations, the firm said.

The global network will offer companies support when they wish to build proof of concepts for the Internet of Things (IoT) and prototypes in specialist sectors such as financial services.

"We're thrilled to be opening our latest Applied Innovation Exchange in London, giving business leaders the chance to not only see the latest innovations from a host of exciting companies across the globe, but also explore, here and now, what they could achieve within their own organisations," Rory Burghes, VP of the Exchange at Capgemini UK, said. 

"To support our group ambition and strategy around cloud and digital, and to go beyond our great delivery capabilities, we are focused on our clients who look to us as a major partner to address the demands on their ability to grow, compete and launch new business models leveraging innovation," Lanny Cohen, global CTO of the platform, added.

Capgemini already has eight Applied Innovation Exchanges in countries including Paris, Munich, Mumbai and, more recently, San Francisco.

"Being part of a global network of Exchanges, it will provide our clients with access to the very latest thinking from across Capgemini, as well as our partners and start-up communities worldwide," Burghes said. "This will help them transform their businesses by reducing the development and deployment cycles from years down to months or even days.

"With the new Exchange in London now part of our Applied Innovation Global Platform, it gives us even greater capability to engage with and support our clients in the UK and across the world on a different level."
