initions achieves elite partner status with Databricks

initions, part of the mindcurv group and a leading consultancy for data and AI solutions, has become the only company in Germany to achieve the coveted Elite Partner status in Databricks' global partner program. This exclusive status is reserved for partners who demonstrate outstanding performance and a long-term commitment to the Databricks platform.

“The Databricks Elite Partner award is a significant milestone for our company. It confirms not only our expertise but also our ability to serve large and complex data intelligence platforms.”
Ulf Ackermann, Managing Director mindcurv: data & AI

Databricks services from initions

initions offers comprehensive data intelligence services based on the Databricks platform. The integration of Databricks into its service offerings enables initions to provide its customers with powerful data processing, collaborative work environments and advanced big data management solutions.

As part of the mindcurv group, initions perfectly complements their comprehensive offering in strategy, creativity and technology. This makes it possible to fully cater to projects from the idea to implementation and turn them into measurable business success. The synergetic aspects create a seamless brand and user experience.

The stages to Databricks Elite Partner Status

The appointment as an Elite Partner not only underlines initions' technological expertise but also the benefits that their clients get with respect to domain knowledge and access.

In 2019, initions was already recognised as Databricks "Top Regional Partner" in the DACH region. Since 2021, initions has trained three Databricks Tech Champions; there are only 20 in the entire DACH region.  In 2022, initions introduced its proprietary "Direct Data Extraction" solution, which enables seamless data integration from SAP to Databricks without the need for an additional third-party tool. This solution has already been successfully used by customers such as GEMA.

Elite Partner status requires the use of at least 50 certified Databricks consultants in the company. In addition, the customer projects implemented with Databricks must exceed a certain consumed volume - initions' portfolio includes large and complex data intelligence projects that have been implemented with customers such as Vattenfall, Hapag-Lloyd, Bauer Media Group and Fraport AG.

The Elite Partner status is the strongest example yet of initions's expertise in their niche - data & AI with Microsoft, Snowflake, Databricks.

Ambition and excellence: the gold standard in Data & AI

With the Databricks Elite Partner status, initions is consolidating its position as an expert in the field of Data & AI. Customers can rely on first-class services, regardless of the size and complexity of the project. initions looks forward to continuing to implement groundbreaking projects in collaboration with Databricks and to accompanying its customers on the path to data-driven excellence.
