The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics (KCGI) and Accenture Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo), a comprehensive consulting company that provides services and solutions in a wide range of fields, opened the Kansai office last year. "Industry-Academia Collaboration Course" was completed on July 31, 2019, with the participants presenting their final results and completing all five courses.More than 40 people, including students of KCGI and Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG) as well as working members of the IT industry, took part in the course, which was designed to help solve the shortage of "DX (Digital Transformation)" personnel who can respond flexibly to changes in customers and markets while providing products and services by quickly adopting digital technologies.

In this course, which began on May 29, Accenture employees served as instructors, and each group discussed the issue of "what kind of customer experience can be created" in the context of various changes in the environment surrounding the restaurant industry, assuming a major family restaurant.In the group work, working people and students came up with ideas together, and many international students also participated, so the work had a rich international flavor.On the final day, each group presented their final results, and ideas were presented, including an application that automatically calculates calories and nutritional content, an application that introduces the best menu to meet individual needs, and an application that allows single people to enjoy eating out without feeling lonely.After the course, a reception was held, where the participants looked back on the study process and thanked each other for their hard work, and pledged to use the results and experiences they had learned in the course in the real world.
