“We’ve designed the Accenture Digital Hub in Singapore to serve as a catalyst for clients who want to co-create leading-edge customer experiences with us,” said Patrick de Moustier, managing director, Accenture Digital ASEAN. “This is where businesses keen to leverage the latest digital technologies and data science can develop their ideas into agile and scalable concepts, working hands on with Accenture experts.

The studio includes a Rumble Room for ideating and collaborating, equipped with a 4.5-metre interactive touch-screen monitor that can connect to innovation centres globally; a Maker Room, where concepts turn into prototypes – ranging from hardware to 3D modelling -- through rapid software application development; content facilities, including a recording studio and post-production room; and usability testing.
  • A Fjord design studio, where design thinking methodologies and rapid prototyping are applied to create engaging digital services across web, smartphones and tablets.

The Accenture Digital Hub in Singapore brings to life the Accenture Innovation Architecture for clients in the region. This innovation-led approach unites the company’s capabilities – from research, ventures and labs to studios, innovation centres and delivery centres – to develop and deliver disruptive innovations for clients, and to scale them faster.
