BearingPoint and wayra go for second round of collaboration
Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint announced that it has prolonged its cooperation agreement with wayra, Telefónica’s incubator. With seven innovation hubs and business development support throughout the world, the cooperation with wayra enables BearingPoint to create added value for its clients by involving innovative start-ups in projects.
In 2019, BearingPoint created with wayra the AI Transformation Model for clients struggling with finding the right approach to artificial intelligence (AI) integration. The joint service offering identifies company-specific AI use cases, finds the right solution provider, and supports companies from implementation to integration into their corporate strategy. Combining wayra’s unique expertise in the start-up realm with BearingPoint’s in-depth industry knowledge, BearingPoint can help its clients take their AI journey to the next level. The cooperation is also creating added value for clients in the areas of mobility, sustainability, cybersecurity, IoT, and 5G.
“Our cooperation with wayra has greatly benefitted our clients with its AI Transformation Model, and we expect more innovation to come out of it,” said Kiumars Hamidian, Managing Partner at BearingPoint. “To be innovative and create value for our clients is a big part of our Strategy 2025, and wayra fits well with our ambitions and where we are going. I’m very pleased that we’ve extended our cooperation.”
“We are happy that BearingPoint has confidence in us and extended our partnership. With BearingPoint we can scale our portfolio start-ups as we are looking in the same technology fields and get access to a different industry. We profit from more than seven years of expertise in the start-up ecosystem, and BearingPoint has a similar approach to digitalization and innovation. That shows us that we are moving in the right direction with wayra-as-a-service,” said Katrin Bacic, Managing Director and Head of Venture Development at wayra Germany.
