Our corporate partner, Accenture Luxembourg, has joined the Silicon Luxembourg Founders Club. Its innovation practitioners explain more about the company.

A few words about you.

My name is Vitalie Schiopu, and I’m experienced in technology innovation. I architect AI-powered platforms and lead global software engineering teams. I build bridges between Accenture, our clients and ecosystem partners, such as incubators, corporate venture capitalists, startups & academia.

I’m Yoann Hertienne, and I’m responsible for the Accenture Liquid Studio hub in Luxembourg. I prototype and scale incubated solutions with and at our clients, locally and internationally.

Why did you want to join the Founders Club?

We infuse innovation in everything we do at Accenture. Proof of that is our Innovation Architecture, a catalyst for creating 360° value. Two of its components help our clients and the wider ecosystem drive continuous innovation at scale:

  • Our Liquid Studio is a team and a physical space where we ideate, co-create, and build solutions together with agility and at speed, linking business and technology together from the outset.
  • Together with our ecosystem partners, like Le Village by CA Luxembourg and Tomorrow Street, we collaborate in helping growth-stage innovators become successful businesses, providing technical support, showcasing the best-in-class enterprise-ready startups and connecting them with relevant

Accenture services to accelerate the transformation initiatives of our own clients.

What are the predictions of your industry?

Technology occupies an increasingly important place in business and society. While organizations continue to navigate many challenges, we are seeing an active shift to the cloud as we enter a new data-driven era. It’s no longer a question of if but when organizations will make this journey. Pivoting successfully and securely is a top priority.

With the Metaverse, businesses are racing towards a future that is different from the one they were designed to operate in as technologies such as blockchain, XR, AI and edge computing converge to
reshape human experiences.

Accenture’s sustainability ambitions also echo with our clients’ priorities. We expect a lot of activity in sustainability: we are already seeing these discussions turn into concrete and exciting projects, and we expect this to become the norm.

Our comprehensive PoV on these predictions is expressed in two annual reports: Technology Vision & Fjord Trends. Both illustrate how we see different trends materialize and where we expect them to go.
