It helps enterprises drive insights for faster and more accurate decision-making, thereby enabling shorter time to value.
Accenture research shows that organizations that are stepping up investments in technologies such as AI and cloud are growing revenue at five times the rate of those not making these strategic investments.

In this rapidly evolving space, constantly building new capabilities is key, and we believe that BRIDGEi2i will further enhance our AI skills and data science capabilities to strengthen how our global network delivers value for clients.”

At BRIDGEi2i, we believe in diving into the heart of business challenges and driving transformation in its truest sense for our clients by combining our AI capabilities with our digital consulting expertise. We are excited to join Accenture and believe that our people and approach will complement their capabilities and help us scale up our impact across industries.”
