Wade Tyler Millward
SPR, WWT, Conduent, Avanade and Open Systems are among the solution providers to weigh in on AI, ML and automation in 2023.
CEO: Pamela Maynard
The economic climate means customers are “tapping into existing technology investments to do more, whether it’s to extract meaning from their data or automate existing processes, for example, so that employees are more informed, engaged and productive,” Avanade CEO Maynard said.
“They’re relying on us to collaborate to help them navigate what’s next—whether that be to pivot to a new business model, automate processes so they can be more efficient, or to enrich the employee and customer experiences,” Maynard said. “To do that, we must collectively think about their needs through their specific business and the industry in which they operate.”
Seattle-based Avanade— No. 33 on CRN’s 2022 Solution Provider 500—was established by Microsoft and Accenture in 2000. Its other partners include Nintex, Sitecore, Qlik, Zscaler, Databricks and Adobe.
