Making digital transformation a reality requires a change in approach and processes. Continuous integration, increased agility, and shorter development life cycles accelerate application deployments and drive greater business value and lower operating costs. In a bid to embrace digital transformation, businesses are moving away from old, monolithic systems to embrace faster, more scalable, and intuitive technologies. They are looking to transform their application deployment models by shifting processes to a secure, container-based approach that can be implemented across multiple clouds. Against this backdrop, approaches such as containerization are seen as key enablers to reduce business and IT complexity and ensure speedy delivery of new services.

“Container technology has emerged as a popular way to optimize the software development processes and increase business agility and time to market with new applications,” says Mike Lawrie, chairman, president, and CEO of DXC Technology [NYSE:DXC]. To meet this need, DXC Technology—in partnership with container technology leader Red Hat—has developed a fully-managed OpenShift platform. DXC Managed Container PaaS powered by Red Hat OpenShift is a fully-managed container platform designed for enterprise clients looking to make digital transformation a reality. Supported by DXC’s industry-leading automation and CloudOps, the service scales quickly to adopt changing business needs. The service transforms application deployment models by shifting processes to a secure, container-based approach that they can implement across multiple clouds.

According to an IDC study on the benefits of Red Hat OpenShift, businesses sped up the application delivery and major feature releases by an average of 66 percent. Shorter application life cycles effectuate developers to improve applications and ultimately the user experience, doubling user adoption rates. The IDC report also revealed that OpenShift cuts average development time by 35 percent, and software requires less time to debug, reducing annual infrastructure and development costs.

Consequently, clients can increase their ROI, while shortening the payback cycle with higher staff productivity, and platform-related cost efficiencies.

DXC Technology helps clients thrive on change. “We have a clear and confident vision for navigating the future, and have met the challenges of innovation many times,” says Lawrie. Building its success on the trust they earned from their clients, the company strives to support a culture of performance, matched with integrity. DXC Technology works shoulder-to-shoulder with its clients to solve complex challenges in ways that minimize business risk and maximize opportunity. During its partnership with any company, DXC Technology’s world-class talent becomes part of its clients’ teams, innovating with them and putting the right technology to work for their organizations.

Recently, DSC Technology has announced the opening of the DXC Innovation Centre in London for the company and its clients to develop and deliver high-impact digital solutions. DXC’s London Innovation Centre is a collaborative environment that draws on the company’s global experience in digital transformation, leverages its rich industry knowledge and independent partner network, and creates an environment for the incubation of ideas, learning, and development. To conclude, Lawrie reflects, “With our highly talented and experienced team, and independent view of technology, our continued goal would be to help our clients in seizing new disruptive opportunities and thriving on change.”

LONDON - DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, today announced the opening of the DXC Innovation Centre in London for the company and its clients to develop and deliver high-impact digital solutions.

DXC’s London Innovation Centre is a collaborative environment that draws on the company’s global experience in digital transformation, leverages its rich industry knowledge and independent partner network, and creates an environment for the incubation of ideas, learning and development.

The London Innovation Centre adds to DXC’s digital network in the UK, which includes a Digital Transformation Centre in Newcastle that is already helping customers to transform and accelerate the creation of business value. As part of this network, DXC digital technologists and enterprise solution experts will work with customers and partners to modernize and integrate mainstream IT by deploying digital solutions at scale.

“Our Innovation Centre brings together innovative technologies, creative thinking and best practices to develop innovative solutions for clients in a rapidly changing digital era,” said Maruf Majed, vice president and general manager, DXC UK, Ireland, Israel, Middle East and Africa. “The Innovation Centre creates opportunities for our people, clients and partners to gain valuable practical experience with digital technology in real-life business applications.”

Local and Global Digital Ideation

The London Centre showcases emerging digital technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT, blockchain and robotics. There will be a focus on sectors including government, energy and utilities, healthcare and life sciences, travel and transport, insurance, financial services and manufacturing.

As part of DXC’s global network of digital experience centres, the London facility will draw from global teams of digital specialists who are working on digital journey mapping and the co-creation of leading-edge prototypes. The goal is to build enterprise-grade, secure and globally scalable solutions for rapid deployment in customer environments.

Development, Engagement and Experiential Opportunities

The Innovation Centre will create new learning and career development opportunities for DXC employees – including personal and organizational digital skills and capabilities – and will contribute to the wider technology and business communities in the UK.

Initial digital client engagements will focus on:

• Digital Account Opening – For customers interacting digitally with their banking providers, who have an obligation to their customers and are bound by government regulation, to ensure that interactions are carried out lawfully;

• Field Worker Effectiveness – Using the latest voice-controlled headsets and the ability to connect workers using digital workflows, tasks can be carried out efficiently and details uploaded into business systems;

• KPI Dashboard – Providing a C-level view of enterprise key performance indicators; and

• Smart Factory Concept – Increasing productivity through digital manufacturing technologies and IoT.

Representing a view from the DXC Partner Network, Peter Almond, PwC Alliance Director, said: “The launch of DXC’s London Innovation Centre provides PwC with a powerful extension to its own eco-system of customer experience centres and brings the ability to co-create innovative digital solutions that are rooted in the realities that come with deploying technology at scale across complex enterprise environments.”

DXC’s London Innovation Centre will also leverage research and frameworks that address the concepts of “Winning in the 21stCentury Organisation” and “Developing the mindsets of 21st Century Humans” from Leading Edge Forum, an independent think tank.
