Theta has been announced as finalists in three categories - Data and AI, Modern Work and Cloud for Good – at the Microsoft NZ Partner Awards 2021.

It's looking like another sterling line-up this year and we're proud to be part of that again! Throughout lockdowns and ever-changing circumstances, our people and customers have kept projects running smoothly, and to the high standards we all set out to achieve. Kudos to all other finalists in what has been another challenging year for New Zealand business. Says Rob Lee, Theta CEO:  

"Adapting to uncertainty has been the theme again this year, and once again, we've seen that Kiwi technology partners have delivered on what they set out to achieve – despite the challenges thrown their way! I'm super proud of our three project finalists. It speaks volumes about the continued dedication of team Theta and our customers – from Auckland to Tauranga to Wellington to Christchurch, and everywhere in between and beyond. Congratulations and best of luck to all the other finalists." 

Our finalist projects 

Data & AI 

Together with the Electricity Authority, we designed a new modern data platform. As the first and largest Lakehouse at 5 Terabytes in New Zealand, it's helping to enhance productivity, manage costs, and create a more efficient infrastructure. 

Modern Work 

As a new organisation, Taumata Arowai was in a prime position to take a modern approach to its workplace and systems – securing productivity, efficiency and collaboration with best-in-class solutions. Working across several Theta practices, we implemented a suite of new solutions, creating an office environment that's easy to work within, and is seamless to the users when working outside the office.   

Cloud for good 

This year, Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand (BCFNZ) adopted Theta's chatbot solution, FAQ Bot, to help manage their Pink Ribbon Breakfast fundraising drive. With over 3,000 fundraisers and a small team support team, BCNZF saved themselves around 250 hours of work over the ten-week campaign. With minimal help, the BCFNZ team set up FAQ Bot to answer the fundraisers’ most frequently asked questions easily and quickly. Since then, they’ve rolled out FAQ Bot to support other fundraising campaigns.
