Accenture Launches Liquid Studio in Manila to Deliver Innovation to Clients with Speed and Agility

MANILA; June 15, 2017 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has launched a new Liquid Studio in Manila, Philippines to help clients take advantage of new technology innovations and accelerate software application development cycles. The Liquid Studio features an open environment where clients co-innovate with Accenture engineers to turn concepts into applications and solutions with speed and agility.
 
At the Liquid Studio, Accenture helps clients reduce development time from months to days by applying rapid development approaches including Agile methodologies and DevOps, and experimenting with disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotic process automation, augmented and virtual reality, cloud, Internet of Things, and blockchain.
 

“The Philippines is a significant and strategic part of Accenture’s global operations and the new Liquid Studio in Manila will help our clients navigate the digital revolution and stay competitive in today’s challenging marketplace,” said Ambe Tierro, Accenture Technology Lead in the Philippines. “The Liquid Studio, which is the first to be co-located in an Accenture Delivery Center, helps clients create real-world solutions at speed and at scale through rapid prototyping, testing their viability in real-time. It is a great example of how Accenture leads with innovation to help clients ‘imagine and invent’ the future.”
 
In addition to serving clients, the Liquid Studio will be used to train and rotate Accenture professionals to New IT, providing them with experience in emerging technologies and ways of working. Tierro added, “The Liquid Studio offers a ‘sandbox environment’ for Accenture employees, where they can experience emerging technologies first-hand and adopt an experimental culture. With this, they can build, test and deliver software with speed and agility. Combined with Accenture’s structured mentorships, this becomes an invaluable part of their career and learning journey at Accenture.”
