DXC Technology, an American multinational, end-to-end IT services company, announced to open a DXC Digital Innovation Lab in Singapore.

The DXC Digital Innovation Lab is developed with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). It is an advanced environment for the incubation of ideas, learning and innovative technology solutions developed by data scientists and enterprise solution experts. The lab promises to benefit DXC employees, clients and partners, as well as the technology and business communities of Singapore, the region and beyond.

The research to empower insurance and financial services industry with transformative digital solutions

The DXC Digital Innovation Lab Singapore is an extension of DXC Labs, whose goal is to ensure that DXC masters the emerging technologies it needs in order to lead clients through accelerating digital transformation. At the innovation lab, digital specialists will explore novel technologies, develop prototypes and create reference architectures for rapid business deployment. It will showcase new and evolving approaches to deliver transformative digital solutions in industries such as insurance and financial services, healthcare and manufacturing. DXC Digital Innovation Lab Singapore will enable DXC to co-create prototypes and solutions with customers and partners across Asia.

The lab will allow Singaporeans to use cutting-edge technology in real-life business applications

Ang Chin Tah, Director, Infocomms and Media, EDB, stated, “The DXC Digital Innovation Lab will accelerate the digital transformation of enterprises in Singapore.” He added, “The Lab will also create opportunities for Singaporeans to gain valuable practical experience from the use of cutting-edge technology in real-life business applications, further building our pipeline of commercially-minded digital talent.”

Koushik Radhakrishnan, Vice President and General Manager, DXC Technology, Asia, stated, “The DXC Digital Innovation Lab Singapore positions DXC Asia at the core of innovation; using advanced technologies and best practices, we localize solutions to address the unique requirements of our clients.” He added, “With over 40 years of experience in Singapore and Asia, DXC is laser-focused on enabling digital transformation in this rapidly growing region through iterative development, minimally viable products, customer co-creation and user-centric design.”

The research to distress highly stressed clinical environment

Dr. Andrea Kwa, pharmacy clinician-scientist, Singapore General Hospital, stated, “The prescription of antibiotics globally, including in Singapore, is largely reliant on the doctors’ clinical experience and sharp diagnostic sense. This could potentially give rise to inconsistent practice and patient outcomes, especially in local hospitals with high patient volume, where we need to diagnose fast.” She added, “The use of artificial intelligence will augment diagnostic acumen to guide appropriate antibiotics prescribing in such a highly stressed clinical environment, and thus complement antibiotic stewardship efforts.” The Singapore General Hospital has also collaborated with DXC on this project.

The DXC Digital Innovation Lab Singapore will help address customer business challenges and deliver transformative industry outcomes leveraging emerging technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT, blockchain and humanoid robotics.
