Omnisient, which positions itself as the global leader in privacy-preserving data collaboration, today announced it has been named a finalist of the 2024 Microsoft Inclusion Changemaker Partner of the Year Award.

The company was honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

“We solve a massive problem for banks and insurers by enabling them to run AI on anonymised consumer data to predict behaviour and assess risk for millions of individuals when traditional credit bureau data is unavailable,” said Jon Jacobson, CEO of Omnisient. “Being recognised at a global level for the positive impact our privacy-preserving data collaboration platform is having on society is a vote of confidence for technology being developed in Africa. As a South African fintech, we are incredibly proud to be one of only four companies recognised globally in this category by Microsoft.”

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognise Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered outstanding Microsoft Cloud applications, services, devices and AI innovation during the past year. Awards were classified in various categories, with honourees chosen from more than 4 700 nominations from more than 100 countries.

Omnisient was recognised for providing outstanding solutions and services in Social Impact: Inclusion Changemaker category. The Inclusion Changemaker Partner of the Year Award recognises a partner organisation that excels at providing innovative and unique services or solutions based on Microsoft technologies that help customers solve challenges of diverse representation, economic access, digital inclusion and/or accessibility. Inclusion changemakers drive digital transformation to help enable more inclusive economic growth. Technology can unlock innovations towards a more inclusive and equitable world, leading to greater innovations for everyone, including the more than 1 billion people living with disabilities.

“Congratulations to the winners and finalists of the 2024 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards!” said Nicole Dezen, Chief Partner Officer and Corporate Vice-President at Microsoft. “The momentum generated by numerous AI and Copilot announcements this year fuelled innovation from our partners, enabling groundbreaking services and solutions to customers. I am inspired by the capability and creativity in our partner ecosystem and this year’s winners beautifully demonstrate the best of what’s possible with AI and the Microsoft Cloud.”
