An innovation centre for businesses in the financial sector has opened in London.
The hub, set up by Synechron, will focus on providing workshops for businesses that are committed to investing in digital transformation and technology.
The opening of SDIC comes after research from IT company Atos showed that the speed at which technological advancements will impact businesses is set to increase. This means that executives will need to get to grips with digital and technology trends.
The centre will provide services for a wide range of businesses in the financial sector, including insurers, banks and fintech players.
It will also give companies a “full range of cutting edge technologies”, which Synechron Managing Director for Innovation David Horton said will inspire customers to “be more creative, and expose them to the possibilities of adopting emerging technology.”
Clients of the Synechron Digital Innovation Centre (SDIC) will have the opportunity to take part in brainstorming sessions for executive management, prototyping challenges and technology workshops. They will also work closely with the company’s innovation team.
Speaking about the benefits that SDIC provides, Synechron CEO Faisal Husain said that it enables businesses to become “fully immersed in the wealth of new technology available”.
He added that it will enable them to move away from their normal office space and provide them with a creative environment with “digital technologies and experts at their disposal.”
