What it takes to be an AI leader
Research from Forbes Insights unveils the thinking and actions that executives are adopting to accelerate their data and AI efforts.
Data, analytics and AI are the keys to transforming how businesses operate and how people work. Is your organisation ready to become a truly digital enterprise?
At Avanade, we help you realise results in a digital world through business technology solutions and managed services that combine insight, innovation and expertise focused on Microsoft technologies. It starts with the Microsoft analytics and AI stack. Experience the best of both worlds with Avanade: the reliability of a traditional systems integrator and the agility and creativity of a digital agency – and the industry knowledge to bring it all together.
“The scalability and functionality of the data analytics solution we’ve developed with Avanade has also dramatically improved Edenred’s operational efficiency and productivity, by replacing repetitive manual processes and focus groups with automated recommendations that target the right consumers.”
When you’re working with data, you want to be able to crunch, twist, add, cut, slice and dice information – plus secure it, manage and govern it in many ways. Microsoft and Avanade can help, whether you want to harness data on-premises, accelerate insights and predictive analytics from the cloud, integrate intelligence into your applications or leverage AI to empower your innovation agenda.
We make it easy for you to use Microsoft’s data platform, no matter where you’re starting from or going to. We build it, run it and can even manage it for you. We can also help you accelerate your move to the cloud. This enables you to take advantage of high availability, reduced costs, data protection, security and agile development, all backed by Microsoft Azure, the only Gartner Magic Quadrant leader in enterprise cloud storage.
When it comes to managing your data, Microsoft’s database management system (DBMS) vision is the most complete and rated the highest for ability to execute. SQL Server offers scalability, performance and availability for mission-critical intelligent applications and data warehouses. It also connects you to real-time intelligence and end-to-end mobile BI with your choice of languages and platforms.
With a full selection of implementation versions, we can help you embrace MSQL, NoSQL, MariaDB, use virtual machines and use SQL Server in the cloud. Avanade is No. 1 in certified professionals for developing Azure web services and implementing Azure infrastructure solutions. Plus, we’ve helped more clients use Azure than any other partner.
If you’re trying to make a leap instead of a steady progression, Microsoft Azure can help. Azure is a cloud set of over 100 services, which are always expanding and designed to help you increase productivity, develop and deploy cloud where you need and want it, and integrate intelligent applications and services.
One of the most popular Azure services is Azure Machine Learning, which enables computers to learn from data and experiences and then act on that information without human intervention. It features an experimentation platform for cloud to edge services, Azure Machine Learning Studio for fail-fast experimentation and Data Science Virtual Machines with preconfigured environments for data scientists.
We can help you get started. Through our design-led analytics workshops, we help you envision the possibilities of new products, new business models, operational efficiencies, advanced customer experiences and more.
“Avanade is second to none in terms of understanding the Microsoft stack. They didn’t come to sell us something; they came to understand and solve our problem.”
If you’re thinking of pushing the boundaries on how you optimise your operations, introduce and create new services or augment your team’s capabilities, artificial intelligence can help. Microsoft Cognitive Services enables you to integrate AI into your websites, bots and applications, providing human-like capabilities to address your business challenges and applications.

Once you have your data gathered and organised – and you understand it – you need to add a layer of visualisation so everyone can consume and draw insights from the data. This enables your team to take smart actions, leading to smart decisions and behaviors.
With tools like Microsoft Power BI, Avanade can help you understand your data, empower your employees to drive internal efficiencies and improve your customer experiences in real-time.
If you’re trying to get data and insights from your IoT devices and integrate them directly with your data warehouse, Azure IoT Edge may be your answer. It connects AI, cloud and edge computing and links to your devices. You can quickly and easily deploy complex event processing, machine learning, image recognition and other AI capabilities.
We can help you harness your IoT devices and synthesise the information that can be incorporated into your business in real-time. This provides greater agility and faster response to the data and insights.
