Using Data and AI to equip you when you need it most

Data, analytics and AI have the power to help you build market agility in a world of exponential change. The power of AI to help you get the most out of your people, process and technology is unparalleled, and the need has never been greater. Data is the lifeblood of many organisations, but is your organisation making the most of it? In a recent global Avanade AI Maturity survey, most organisations are in their infancy when it comes to AI adoption.

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.

“Avanade helped us choose the right technologies, define how we should use those technologies in combination, and get the concepts right. They helped develop our functional design and have been valuable partners and trusted advisers in so many ways. Together, we’re bringing big ideas to life.”

Sebastian Smerat Head of Center of Excellence Data Analytics & BI, thyssenkrupp Materials Services

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.

people-program-project-skills-iconMicrosoft Azure and Azure Machine Learning

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.”
