DALLAS, March 8, 2023 – o9 Solutions, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, today announced that it is honoring Microsoft as o9’s Technology Partner of the Year as part of o9’s inaugural Partner Awards program. Microsoft will receive the Digital Brain Award for the successful integration of the o9 Digital Brain platform across all three of Microsoft’s cloud infrastructures.
In 2022, Microsoft’s continued collaboration with o9 resulted in the integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365, which brings together o9’s Digital Brain platform and the breadth of solutions offered by the Microsoft Supply Chain Platform. o9’s AI-powered platform for integrated business planning and decision-making is also available, which allows joint customers to benefit from streamlined deployment and integration, as well as Azure’s scalability, flexibility, and security. In addition, Azure Synapse Analytics meets o9’s needs for processing very large datasets typical in market intelligence as an analytics service that brings together data integration, enterprise data warehousing, and big data analytics. Each integration showcases the commitment o9 and Microsoft have to help leading companies transform their supply chain, commercial, and integrated business planning capabilities to convert data into actionable insights and drive high-quality, business-critical decisions.
“We’re pleased to recognize Microsoft as an outstanding technology partner with our first Digital Brain Award,” says Igor Rikalo, President and Chief Operating Officer o9 Solutions. “Through our partnership and platform integrations on Microsoft’s cloud services, we’ve been able to provide robust solutions to our joint clients. o9 looks forward to collaborating alongside Microsoft to continue enhancing our business and supply chain planning possibilities for current and future customers.”
“Microsoft is honored to accept o9’s Technology Partner of the Year award,” says Dominik Wee, CVP, Manufacturing and Mobility Industry at Microsoft. “Through our collaboration, we are proud to deliver powerful business outcomes on the Microsoft platform. We look forward to accelerating our rich co-innovation to deliver meaningful supply chain transformations for our valued customers worldwide.”
In addition to the Digital Brain Award, o9’s annual Partner Awards will highlight the outstanding contributions made by its partner organizations across four additional categories:
- The Digital Operating Model Award, for the largest transformation of the year
- The Graph-Cube Award, for the most impactful innovation on the o9 platform
- The 10x Partner Award for the fastest-growing partner of the year
- The MVP Award for the best all-around player in sales and delivery
