Akumina, in Partnership with Avanade, Announces New FLIGHT Offering to Help Organizations Rapidly Launch Modern Digital Workplace Experiences

FLIGHT Enables Businesses to Begin Digital Workplace Transformations
by Building Cost-Efficient, Highly Responsive, and Secure Workplace

the employee experience platform (EXP) powering personalized digital
employee experiences, in partnership with Avanade,
the leading digital innovator on the Microsoft ecosystem, today unveiled
FLIGHT, a new offering that makes it easy for large organizations to
take the first steps in launching a branded digital workplace experience
to advance their modern digital workplace transformation program. The
announcement comes ahead of the Gartner
Digital Workplace Summit
, taking place May 29-30, 2019 in Orlando,

In today’s hypercompetitive marketplace, business leaders understand the
value of delivering employee experiences that create competitive
advantage, but a lack of consensus, fragmented budgets and limited
expertise prevent many companies from executing their vision. FLIGHT
leverages Avanade’s global network of Digital Innovation Studios to help
businesses quickly set up Akumina’s innovative employee experience
platform. FLIGHT balances strategy with time-sensitive execution,
quickly adapting to evolving user needs and creating a value map to
guide the next innovation in just seven weeks.

“Many enterprise digital workplace initiatives fail or are never
launched because stakeholders are unclear how their employee experience
will create competitive advantage and are intimidated at the timelines
and budget required to get to the first release,” said Florin Rotar,
Avanade Modern Workplace Executive. “By delivering value quickly and
incrementally, FLIGHT gives companies the clarity and confidence
required to accelerate their journey.”

Akumina’s flagship software platform, which powers FLIGHT, recently
rolled out new capabilities that enable businesses to quickly configure
core capabilities, such as search and workflow, to create personalized
experiences for every employee at launch. FLIGHT benefits from the new
Experience Builder, Persona Builder, and Impersonation Engine to
democratize and streamline how users create and manage individual
widgets or full-blown experiences. The EXP platform allows for better
targeting of experiences based on employee roles and objectives,
enabling users to create content once and deliver it to different
audiences across a multitude of canvases – such as Office 365, Azure,
AWS, iOS & Android. This capability allows every employee to consume
their personalized experience anywhere, on any device, and in any

“There’s no better delivery partner for FLIGHT than Avanade, with its
19-year track record of helping clients tap into the Microsoft
ecosystem, responsible for the successful delivery of thousands of
modern workplace transformation programs.,” said David Maffei, President
of Akumina. “We’re looking forward to helping large organizations dip
their toes into the digital transformation waters so they can realize
the value of investing in the employee experience and identify new
opportunities to improve employee engagement and productivity.”

Akumina, Accenture, and Avanade will be discussing FLIGHT at the Gartner
Digital Workplace Summit
at booth #’s 117 and 201. Stop by for more
