Wilson Allen wins Microsoft Gold status for data analytics as it prepares to launch managed service offering

Legal technology consulting and services firm Wilson Allen has been certified by Microsoft as a Gold partner for two competencies: data platform and data analytics, as it prepares to formally roll out a new data analytics managed services offering.

Norm Mullock, vice president of strategy at Wilson Allen (pictured below), said: “There is pent-up demand within law firms to apply analytics to data from all parts of their practice – beyond the financial management system,” he says. “Our soon to be announced data platform and data analytics managed service will help firms develop a cohesive analytics strategy to extract and analyze data for predictive modeling for business development, resource utilization, and long-term strategic planning.”

Gold partners represent only about 1% of the Microsoft partner network. The certification involves rigorous training and performance requirements, as well as customer references to verify a high standard of service delivery.

Mullock added: “We’re proud to be certified as a Microsoft Gold partner. This recognizes our investment in helping firms innovate and achieve their objectives faster by applying analytics to the full breadth of data wherever it resides. And it acknowledges our expertise in helping firms get the most out of their investments in Microsoft solutions including Power BI and Azure Analytics.”

Wilson Allen has already been recognized by Microsoft as an AI Inner Circle partner and it has been using Cognitive Services to deliver prebuilt AI and machine learning models to firms.
