Technology outsourcing company Accenture has opened its Innovation Hub in Tokyo as part of the strategy to tap more customers.
Accenture said the unveiling of the Innovation Hub in Tokyo’s Minato Ward is part of its plans to open new facilities across Japan.
Accenture in February will expand its Kansai office, located in Osaka, on Honshu. Accenture in the spring of 2018 will relocate its headquarters into bigger offices in Tokyo and plans to open a branch in Fukuoka on Kyushu Island.
Accenture provides access to digital and emerging technologies – artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, IoT, drones with computer vision, and virtual reality – that have the power to transform business.
“We are building our facilities and capabilities in Japan to help our clients harness the true power of disruption so they can unlock trapped value in their business and gain a competitive edge,” said Atsushi Egawa, country managing director of Accenture, Japan.
In March 2017, Accenture announced plans to expand its Fukushima Innovation Center. In July 2017, Accenture relocated its Delivery Center in Hokkaido to a bigger space.
In addition, the head office of IMJ Corporation, which became part of the Accenture group in July 2016, and became a wholly owned subsidiary, has moved into the building that houses Accenture Innovation Hub.
