Why innovation helps Experian retain its position among Forbes’ Top 100 Most Innovative Companies in the World

For the fourth consecutive year, we’ve been included in Forbes Magazine’s Top 100 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies.

At Experian, we are proud to foster a global culture of continuous innovation. The recognition is a testament to our focus on putting our customers at the center of what we do, and powering innovative opportunities to secure better, more productive futures for people and organizations.

The past year has been a year of significant milestones, including our drive to continually improve, innovate, develop and create a more open and adaptive technology environment across the Experian network.

We continue to invest and improve data accuracy to help improve insight and reduce fraud and risk for clients.

We’ve also implemented application programming interfaces (APIs) across the Experian network. This works to improve the transfer of data, speed up the pace of innovation and foster a more collaborative environment, enabling us to create a more efficient and targeted platform for our customers.

An industry’s greatest innovators are successful, not only because they deliver superior products in the present, but also – and perhaps more importantly – because they continuously solidify their place in the future through a culture of discovery that encourages modernisation and disruption. As author Greg Satell outlined in his new book, Mapping Innovation: A Playbook for Navigating a Disruptive Age, the work we do in our DataLabs – and throughout Experian – shows our commitment to being inventive and agile in an increasingly competitive market.

Experian embraces a culture of discovery that enables us to grow and evolve while remaining at the forefront of innovation. Of course, the key is to never stop questioning, evolving and innovating. And we won’t.
