With QUANTIQ and its strong reputation as a trusted Microsoft partner, we see a huge opportunity for Avanade to quickly scale up to meet the growing need for solutions that help organisations realise, much needed business efficiencies, agility and resilience, and also help overcome barriers to growth,” said Andy Gillett, General Manager for Avanade UK and Ireland.
