Apple mobility partner, Asynchrony Labs, has opened its London headquarters in Canary Wharf today.
The firm of US$9billion delivers custom software to global brands such as: Emerson, Mastercard, Papa Johns and the US Department of Defense.
Kelly White, general Manager at Asynchrony Labs, said: “London has been on our radar for a long time and we’re delighted to be expanding the tech community into Canary Wharf. Setting up an agile software lab here makes perfect sense – it represents the maturity of our technology approach and of London as a technology hub.
“For us, Canary Wharf represents the real strength of London – as a meeting place between fantastic tech innovation and longstanding financial services expertise. Even after Brexit, we think that London is where technology will increasingly impact enterprise.”
To access alpha and beta products, the software development arm has partnered with Apple in a research and development role.
The company’s recent work also includes a virtual healthcare system built on communication tools and connected sensors, to enable remote care, which have arisen since their government work.
Ben Boswell, vice president at World Wide Technology, added: “Companies that did not previously consider themselves technology firms are finding that they need to integrate new technology at great speed. Innovation is linked to profitability but all too often the link is not fully made between business outcome and technology delivery.
“Frankly, the emerging technology market is proliferated by immature solutions and undisciplined agile development practices, which do not lend themselves to immediate at scale deployment. At enterprise level, this simply doesn’t fly.”
Do not miss exclusive interview with Kelly White to be published online at the end of this week.
