Microsoft Jumps ‘Light Years’ In Health Care AI With Nuance Acquisition
Director of Advanced Analytics, Brian Atkiss is cited in this recent CRN article.
The planned $19.7 billion acquisition of Nuance is a huge artificial intelligence and voice recognition win for Microsoft, and should create major services opportunities with health care customers in the channel, solution providers told CRN.
Solution providers applauded Microsoft’s planned $19.7 billion acquisition of Nuance Communications as a major expansion of the channel opportunity around artificial intelligence and voice recognition in the health care market. The deal—set to become Microsoft’s second-largest acquisition ever after LinkedIn, with an expected closing by the end of 2021—is poised to open new doors for Microsoft partners with customers in health care and beyond, solution provider executives told CRN.
Microsoft has “invested heavily into its health care cloud offering, and it seems like this will fit perfectly into it.” And for solution providers that target health care such as Anexinet, No. 212 on the Solution Provider 500, Nuance will be “another tool to help us bring to the table leading technology solutions—which can provide a better patient experience or increase efficiencies through automation,” Atkiss said.
