Global management consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is to set up its Asia-Pacific center for digital services in Shenzhen, according to Shenzhen Daily.

Scheduled to open this October, the DigitalBCG Asia Pacific Center will host a big data analysis base, a digital innovation incubator and a digital solution exhibition hall.

“We decided to set up the center in Shenzhen because the city has a lot of innovative talent who can break the boundaries of different fields,” said Hans-Paul Burkner, chairman of BCG, at Saturday’s signing ceremony with the Shenzhen Municipal Commerce Bureau.

“We also want to form a diversified team of digital experts and provide the latest solutions for Chinese and global enterprises, governments and public institutions in the digital era,” he added.

As one of the consulting firm’s three regional digital centers around the world after San Francisco and Paris, the Shenzhen center aims to leverage the company’s own data analysis methods and tools to customize digital transformation strategies for customers.

It also strives to provide digital transformation services, including data analysis, artificial intelligence, industry 4.0, IT architecture, customer journey re-engineering and digital architecture.
