Stellar Consulting Group has been named a double finalist for Data and Artificial Intelligence in the 2018 Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards.

Stellar was recognised among a national field of innovative Microsoft partners that are addressing their customers’ needs and digital transformations through Microsoft technology.

The Data and AI award reflects the fact that organisations are now able to make far greater use of their data than in the past, says Travis Barker, consulting partner at Stellar.

“Artificial Intelligence, including Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing, enables machines to understand language and solve problems – even to ‘think’ of new data models that will lead to better predictions.

“From the user’s point of view, interrogating the data becomes much easier when machines understand our questions and can apply cognitive analytics to deliver the answers.”

The Microsoft Partner Awards is made up of 11 categories this year, down from 26 in 2017. The categories recognise Microsoft Partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the year, with categories including Engaging Customers, Cloud for Good, Empowering Employees and Modern Workplace.

“We are proud to see such a high calibre of finalists this year to recognise Kiwi innovation within the local Microsoft partner community,” says Phil Goldie, One Commercial Partner Director Microsoft New Zealand. “We congratulate Stellar Consulting Group on being recognised for its work and named a finalist in the Data and AI category.”

The award winners will be announced on 21 June in Auckland.
