Labs

The future has yet to be written. But we're working on it.

At Virtusa Digital's global innovation labs, our teams are constantly pushing the boundaries of exploration. Continually learning and experimenting with new technologies to understand what's possible. Prototyping ideas to visualize our ideas and identify the ones are worth refining—and turning our aspirations into working realities.

Research & Development

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is no longer just for gamers. Immersive experiences will soon be available for everyone. VR is radically changing the way we use computers, our phones and ultimately how we communicate with each other. We are constantly experimenting with the rapidly evolving VR space—building concepts with Facebook’s Oculus Rift, Microsoft’s HoloLens and Google’s Cardboard. We are pushing the boundaries of what great experiences can be by thinking about ways VR can enhance the end user experience.

Artificial Intelligence

It’s not just about winning game shows like Jeopardy. The business benefits of cognitive computing platforms such as IBM’s Watson are broad and numerous. Industries that have large amounts of data or information and require complex analytics for key decisions and insights are logical choices for integrating cognitive computing solutions into everyday applications. Today, we’re actively exploring how to integrate Watson into our client solutions in healthcare, insurance and financial services.

Blockchain

What is the future of currency? Bitcoin may not be the answer, but the technology behind it, blockchain, might be. By enabling “trustless” transactions, blockchain eliminates the need for an intermediary between buyers and sellers in most transactions, even those outside finance. We’re at forefront of exploring innovative ways to leverage blockchain technology for financial services clients and have working proof of concepts in OTC post-trade processing and multi-sign escrow services.

Solution Accelerators

Launch Pad

The complexities of enterprise web content tools are growing. Much of the time today is spent on initial setup, configuration and the building of foundational components—which takes away from the real work of designing a personalized experience.

With LaunchPad, we’ve taken the time to package over 50+ common components and templates into a reusable framework that provides all the elements necessary for successful site implementations and creating personalized, engaging web and mobile experiences. Using LaunchPad, our clients have seen up to 30% faster time to market.

vMobile AppStart

Launching mobile apps takes time. Sure, it’s easy to slap together a basic app, but dealing with security and authentication, image capture, cloud integration, legacy system connectors and geolocation services can turn a simple app into a major project.

VMobile Appstart does all this hard work for you. Based on our learnings from delivering more than 60 enterprise-grade mobile applications, we have bundled a set of mobile components and design patterns that provide frequently-used enterprise mobile capabilities. Jumpstart your mobile app development with vMobile Appstart.

vGate Connect

Becoming a Mobile First enterprise is no easy task. Integrating with numerous legacy systems, accessing data within a variety of systems of record and handling security make it almost impossible to rapidly launch a mobile app for your employees.

vGate Connect provides a scalable, integrated mobile solution accelerator framework to connect legacy enterprise systems and cloud platforms enabling business to effectively consume data through a mobile app or your full enterprise app portfolio. vGate Connect accelerates your mobile app launch.

vStyle

Patterns make the world go around. But are you tired of creating static style guides and then struggling to keep them up to date?

We’ve created a set of reusable UI pattern libraries that contain design patterns, HTML & CSS, usage scenarios, images, iconography, page elements, interactive elements and more. Leveraging pattern libraries cuts out repetitive design work, allowing teams to focus on creating engaging experiences. It also provides a common UI/UX language for a team, reducing communication issues and keeping everyone on the same page.
