Pythian Wins 2018 Google Cloud Data Analytics Partner of the Year Award

April 9, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 9, 2019--Pythian, a global IT company that helps businesses use cloud to compete and win today announced that it has received the 2018 Google Cloud Global Data Analytics Partner of the Year award. This award was presented at the Partner Summit at Google Cloud Next ’19.

Pythian was recognized for the company’s achievements in the Google Cloud ecosystem, helping joint customers by delivering solutions to the toughest data challenges faster and better than anyone else. For example, The England and Wales Cricket Board needed to analyze more cricket matches than their manual process allowed and be more consistent in the analysis. They turned to Pythian and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to evaluate opportunities, assess the available data and establish an AI roadmap to automate video labeling and expand cricket recording footage analysis beyond the capabilities of the human eye. This allowed them to enrich their fan experience with more data driven features in their mobile app. Another client, Semios, leveraged Pythian expertise for transitioning to GCP, enabling the Canadian agricultural startup to devote its time and resources to building its software offerings.

“Pythian is honored to receive the 2018 Google Cloud Data Analytics Partner of the Year Award,” said Alex Gorbachev, Pythian’s Cloud CTO. “Winning in today’s data economy demands using data and cloud for every business advantage. Pythian helps organizations leverage their data to transform how they compete and win in this ever-changing environment by delivering data-focused GCP solutions.” From cloud automation to machine learning, Pythian leads the industry with proven services and deep data expertise.

“We’re thrilled to recognize Pythian as Data Analytics Partner of the Year,” said Carolee Gearhart, Vice President, Worldwide Channel Sales at Google Cloud. “Pythian has proven their expertise in Google Cloud and has demonstrated their commitment to customer success over the past year.
