The need for speed

Formula One racing is all about speed. Speed is also at the heart of our partnership with Williams Martini Racing. Together, we’ve accelerated the way the Williams team uses technology to realize business goals across the organization.

Avanade maintains this strategy for every project or decision. This ensures that IT doesn’t act as a filter that stops people from having access to the resources they need to digitally enhance the way they work.

“We didn’t think anyone could build our new website in the time frame we needed. But the Avanade team delivered. We didn’t expect to be able to deploy our new apps for the season’s first race. But thanks to the power of Avanade global delivery network, we had them ready."

Results: Avanade helps Williams race off the track

Avanade is accustomed to clients that want business results fast. But when the client in question is a world-renowned Formula One racing organization, “fast” takes on a whole new meaning.

That was the situation facing Avanade when it was engaged by Williams Martini Racing to help the company implement a wide-ranging technology vision. The partnership began on Jan. 1, 2015, and Williams wanted its first technology projects to be ready to launch for the first race of the season – just three months later.

Results came quickly:
