NEW YORK, June 27, 2022 — Deloitte today announced it has been named Transformation Partner of the Year and Public Sector Partner of the Year by Databricks, the data and AI company and pioneer of the data lakehouse paradigm. Deloitte was recognized as Transformation Partner of the Year for its ability to leverage the Lakehouse architecture to lead customers on their data and AI journeys, and Public Sector Partner of the Year for delivering deep industry experience, technology skills and impactful solutions to Databricks customers in public sector and SLED.

The award was presented this week at Databricks’ Data + AI Summit 2022 and underscores the impact Deloitte has made in developing Databricks competency and helping joint clients solve their data and analytics challenges, adopt more agile processes, and break into new revenue streams.

The Deloitte and Databricks alliance combines Deloitte’s world-class experience in data modernization and advanced analytics with Databricks’ Lakehouse Platform. Deloitte’s Databricks Migration Factory provides structured approaches and methodologies on how to deliver successful implementations of Databricks. The Migration Factory leverages state-of-the-art techniques to simplify the end-to-end data and AI modernization journey for all stakeholders and minimize as much disruption as possible.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished with Databricks to help our joint clients holistically migrate and modernize to the cloud. Together, we help them simplify and future-proof their data and AI architecture, maximize ROI, and unlock new business value through the power of the open, integrated and collaborative Lakehouse platform,” said Maulik Shah, Databricks alliance leader, and managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “We are honored and grateful to be recognized as both Transformation Partner of the Year and Public Sector Partner of the Year, and we look forward to cultivating more opportunities to leverage our experience in building next-gen data, AI and data-sharing solutions on top of the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.”

“The government and public services team is thrilled to receive this award,” said Dave Thomas, principal and GPS Databricks alliance leader at Deloitte Consulting LLP. “This recognition validates the impact that Deloitte and Databricks are delivering to our public sector clients with sustainable, multi-cloud ready solutions.”
