- Global clients to gain access to Silicon Valley's ecosystem of startups and 
academia as well as innovation centers of large technology partners 

    Mindtree ( has inaugurated its new Silicon Valley 
Reimagination Center with the objective of collaborating with the best of the 
valley ecosystem - including its thriving startups, world leading academic 
institutions and innovation centers of large technology partners - for the

    Many enterprises that have done successful digital transformation 
initiatives are wondering what is next. Advances in modern AI technologies have 
created an exciting opportunity to transform business processes, liberating 
human talent for more creative purposes by going beyond just digitization. The 
core systems of many enterprises are decades-old and have been enhanced with 
digital techniques like API-fication to support digital transformation 
initiatives. However, enterprises have an urgent need to rebuild core 
enterprise systems with micro-services and server-less architectures where 
security and AI are woven into the very fabric of these systems. Further, the 
combination of the internet of things (IoT) and modern AI is creating the 
opportunity for many industrial enterprises to rebuild their business models, 
business processes and products. Enterprises need the support of the world's 
best technology ecosystem and talent to drive these reimagination initiatives.

academic institutions that are doing cutting-edge research in these areas. We 
expect our Silicon Valley Reimagination Center to be at the forefront of the 
next wave of reimagination that comes beyond digital by leveraging these 

    "Our global clients in many industries are wondering, 'What would a Silicon 
Valley startup company do if they were entering our industry today,'" said Dr. 
Satya Ramaswamy, Executive Vice President for Mindtree's Enterprise

transformation initiatives, they see further opportunities for competitive
