Digital transformation centre to boost collaborative research

A digital transformation centre has opened at the Hawthorn campus of the Swinburne University of Technology, according to a recent announcement.

The DXC Digital Transformation Centre will bring together the expertise of DXC Technology, an end-to-end IT services company and that of Swinburne, which is an industry-aligned university with key strengths in Industry 4.0 and advanced digital research and innovation.

The Centre will allow for collaborative research between government, Australian industries and academia.

Moreover, it will facilitate the creation of new talent pool of students to support the evolving needs of workforces and communities as they prepare for a digital future.

The Centre will showcase a new and evolving approach for clients to deliver digital solutions by drawing on the company’s global experience in digital transformation and the University’s expertise in Industry 4.0 technology, social impact, and design thinking.

Research excellence will be engaged across all key digital research capabilities such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity, advanced visualisation, autonomous systems and cloud computing.

By creating a space for the incubation of ideas and learning, new conversations will spark.

These conversations may lead to innovative solutions that solve real business challenges faced by Australian enterprises.

It will provide an environment focused on generating rapid outcomes and return on investment for organisations embarking on digital transformation, and new product and service development.

This collaborative venture puts the University at the forefront of digital transformation and will drive new research-led innovations and solutions for the rapidly changing industry environment.

The Centre’s first client is Guide Dogs Victoria. The organisation provides vital support for Victorians with low vision or blindness.

It recognised the benefits of engaging with the Centre in order to develop a working prototype of a Peer Support Platform for individuals with low vision or blindness.

The organisation focuses on improving client outcomes and being at the forefront of technological innovation is an important ingredient to achieve this.

This collaboration will allow them to work with the brightest minds at both DXC and Swinburne on what will be the first project under their new partnership.

The creation of a new Peer Support Platform will enable Victorians with low vision and blindness to actively contribute to leading, shaping, and influencing their community.

This unique offering of the DXC Digital Transformation Centre at Swinburne draws on collaborative minds and home-grown partnerships across industry, academia, community and government, and is intended to foster a new culture of innovation in a digital world.
