The DQWeek (Chennai) - - FRONT PAGE - DQW NEWS BUREAU Ben­galuru

Ban­ga­lore In­ter­na­tional Air­port Limi t ed ( BIAL) has signed an agree­ment with Ac­cen­ture to set up a coin­no­va­tion cen­ter that will help BIAL cre­ate an air­port of the fu­ture at the Kem­pe­gowda In­ter­na­tional Air­port, Ben­galuru (BLR Air­port). The cen­ter will in­cu­bate and de­velop dig­i­tal so­lu­tions us­ing fu­ture-ready tech­nolo­gies to pro­vide more en­gag­ing pas­sen­ger ex­pe­ri­ence.

BIAL has em­barked on an am­bi­tious jour­ney to cre­ate a dig­i­tized and in­tu­itive des­ti­na­tion air­port for trav­ellers. Ac­cen­ture will help de­fine a dig­i­tal roadmap for BIAL and de­velop tai­lor made so­lu­tions us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing In­ter­net of Things, ad­vanced an­a­lyt­ics, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, ro­bot­ics, aug­mented and vir­tual re­al­ity, in ad­di­tion to so­cial and mo­bile plat­forms.

The fo­cus of the dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion is to im­prove the trav­eler’s jour­ney, cre­ate new rev­enue op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­al­ize op­er­a­tional ef­fi­cien­cies through an ag­ile ap­proach for BIAL and its busi­ness part­ners.

The BIAL-Ac­cen­ture Co-In­no­va­tion Cen­tre will be lo­cated at the air­port. Draw­ing on Ac­cen­ture’s travel and avi­a­tion ex­per­tise, the cen­ter will in­cu­bate ideas iden­ti­fied in the dig­i­tal roadmap. It will also in­volve cur­rent and new ecosys­tem part­ners as well as start-ups from BIAL and Ac­cen­ture’s net­works. This cen­ter will tap the Ac­cen­ture In­no­va­tion Ar­chi­tec­ture, fo­cused on the travel in­dus­try.
