Digital transformation services provider Crayon has fully launched its Data & AI practice through an AI Center of Excellence in the Asia Pacific region that focuses on creating innovative and value-based artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions.
The center is located in Singapore and can provide clients across a range of industries and sectors with an end-to-end delivery service, starting from data assessment to AI model deployment and management in production.
“There is so much power in innovation to drive the greater good and we’re excited to leverage our global success in data and AI to benefit the Asia Pacific region,” said Melissa Mulholland, CEO Crayon.
Crayon’s global Data & AI practice was established in 2014 and has since successfully executed more than 100 AI and machine learning projects worldwide. Crayon started the project to build its Asia Pacific AI Center of Excellence in 2018 and has had recent AI offerings in the region including a partnership with a significant medical group and supporting non-profit opportunities.
The center in Singapore will continue to provide data, AI and machine learning services, supporting customers through every step of their digital transformation journey.
“As we continue to guide our customers on their cloud journey, the promise of advanced analytics, AI and machine learning becomes more than just a vision, but something that can be realized,” said Rhonda Robati, Senior Vice President APAC at Crayon. “Therefore, we believe that now is the right time for Crayon to establish this Center of Excellence to share our global expertise in these innovative technologies with our customers in the Asia Pacific region,” added Robati.
After opening its offices in Singapore in 2014, Crayon has invested heavily in developing deep competencies in the Asia Pacific region. The Center of Excellence in Singapore is an expansion of its services portfolio offering.
The expansion is supported by Microsoft, strengthening both companies’ long-term partnership based on innovation and implementation of new customer solutions. Crayon was previously chosen as Microsoft’s No. 1 partner in the world for AI and machine learning.
“I love to see partners invest so heavily in the region and it really does align with our vision as a company which is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more,” said Fiona Carney, Chief Marketing & Operations Office APAC at Microsoft. “I’m delighted that Crayon is going to help contribute to that to our shared customers,” added Carney.
