Servian Achieves Machine Learning Specialisation in the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program

Google Cloud Recognises Servian’s Technical Proficiency and Proven Success In Machine Learning

3 December 2019—Servian today announced that it has achieved the Machine Learning Specialisation in the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program, making it one of only four companies in Australia and New Zealand with the accreditation. By earning the Partner Specialisation, Servian has proven their expertise and success in building customer solutions in the Machine Learning field using Google Cloud Platform technology.

Specialisations in the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program are designed to provide Google Cloud customers with qualified partners that have shown technical proficiency and proven success in specialised solution and service areas.

With more Google Cloud-certified consultants than any other professional services firm in ANZ, this recent accolade places Servian in a unique position in the market.

“Servian has been at the forefront of delivering business outcomes leveraging machine learning since its inception,” Servian Head of Artificial Intelligence, Andy Huang, says. “This recognition reaffirms our expert competency in the field of AI/ML. It means that clients can trust us to implement best practice in machine learning projects, and it means that we have proven experience, knowledge and skills in implementing ML solutions leveraging the best AI capabilities of Google Cloud Platform.”

Servian works with major banks, retailers, telcos and other large companies to develop applied AI/ML solutions that drive business’ competitive advantage. 

“We formally established our artificial intelligence and machine learning practice some years ago to focus on specialised skill sets such as production machine learning, applications of computer vision, natural language processing and other areas of advanced analytics. The practice has been rapidly growing ever since, as AI and ML have become the new competitive frontier for businesses to achieve greater outcomes,” Huang, says. 

Along with artificial intelligence, Servian has expertise that spread from digital delivery to cloud migration and application development. It has over ten years experience in data analytics, which provides a solid foundation for its AI/ML success. 

“Our heritage in data positions us differently. We are not laser-focused on the maths but consider the engineering of reliability, scalability, security and governance of the data platform foundation. Now that we have achieved a comprehensive set of Google Cloud Specialisations, it means our customers can rest assured that Servian will have a cohesive approach on all fronts,” says Huang. 

To achieve the ML Specialisation, Servian had to demonstrate success with data exploration, preprocessing, model training, model evaluation, model deployment, online prediction, and Google pre-trained Machine Learning APIs. 

With two acquisitions this year, Servian has expanded both its capability and footprint, moving further into the APAC region and opening up abroad. This Specialisation will support the company as it grows its presence in the UK, where ML will be a key focus. 

“As we grow our data practice in the UK, it’s clear that our clients are looking to expand their horizons with ML. We are looking forward to helping them realise this goal and take advantage of the business acceleration ML offers,” Servian UK Regional Partner, Tim Mannah, says.
