US-based Accenture has had multiple partnerships, initiatives, and associations with Indian ventures in this quarter. On July 20, the company announced the opening of its newest Advanced Technology Centers of India (ATCI) hub in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, for tech services project. On August 8, Accenture announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer upskilling courses in cloud technologies. A few weeks later, it also announced a strategic investment in homegrown space-tech startup Pixxel to work on technologies such as prediction of weather and man-made calamities. In September, it also collaborated with the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras to set up a Center of Excellence (CoE) for collaborative research — which would see students at the institute get access to Accenture’s technology infrastructure for use in various research projects.
Today, it was announced that Accenture will offer AI and RPA driven technologies to help Hyderabad-based Indian technology services company, Cyient, upgrade its business operations. With this, Cyient will seek to upgrade its internal operational processes with software based automation — which Accenture’s SynOps and myWizard suites will provide.
Cyient, a Hyderabad headquartered technology services company, is a multinational venture that offers services such as industrial engineering and manufacturing, scientific research, semiconductor designing, geospatial services for navigation, smart city operations, surveillance and mobility, and more. The company operates in sectors such as aerospace, defense services, automotive, communications, energy, mining, power, railways, and more.
Accenture, on its part, will offer services such as SynOps and myWizard. The former is a suite of data analytics services that seek to improve processes such as procurement of raw materials, thereby improving supply chain costs. myWizard, on the other hand, is a set of AI driven software automation tools and services that seek to reduce development timelines, in order to improve the efficiency of a project, and its timeline of completion.
All such tools are part of a company’s migration to digital platforms for operational and core technologies, which is what Cyient aims to achieve here.
