The Lab will be hosted in a Telstra facility, featuring the latest cloud technologies.
Telstra CTO, Dr Hugh Bradlow, said the new Lab boosted Telstra’s capabilities in providing locally-hosted cloud services backed by Accenture’s enterprise grade cloud solutions.
“The lab will prove a powerful tool to help us develop the best possible services for our customers into the future,” Bradlow said.
Accenture chief technology innovation officer, Dr Gavin Michael, said it was the next logical step to introduce an innovation lab to support the local development of cloud services in Australia.
“Australia is a proven early adopter of technology, and with the growing interest in cloud computing, it is an ideal place to establish a Product Innovation Lab,” Michael said.
