Enlighten Designs has expanded its presence to Auckland by committing to a flexible, shared workspace at Alike, Level 1, 1 Anzac Avenue, Auckland. The decision to open doors in Auckland is about further investing in the relationships that make up 20% of Enlighten’s business.
Last year, Enlighten Designs was proud to begin a collaboration with Microsoft to support a data journalism program designed to take storytelling to the next level. We also led a hands-on lab for media at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit in Seattle last June, which taught press how to use Microsoft Power BI, a data analytics and visualization tool for data storytelling efforts.
Enlighten Designs is collaborating with Microsoft to support international news agency The Associated Press (The AP) in creating and delivering localised interactive data visualisations to member news organisations.
Enlighten Designs is proud to support Smart Waikato’s Secondary School-Employer Partnerships (SSEP).
Running in 12 Waikato schools in 2017, including Hamilton Boys’ High School, the goal of SSEP is to empower youth through education to employment pathways and improve student retention, achievement and education-to-employment transitions, beginning with Year 9 and 10 students and progressing to senior students.
We’re thrilled to announce that, after successful projects with government organisations like Waikato University and Waikato Regional Council, Enlighten has been listed on the new All-of-Government Web Services Panel (WSP). This is the second time in a row that we have been recognised as a trusted supplier by the DIA.
2016 marks the ninth year Enlighten was named as a finalist at the annual Microsoft NZ Partner Awards which exist to recognise excellence within the IT industry. The awards received a record number of submissions this year, and we are honoured to be named as finalists in the ‘Data Analytics Partner of the Year’ and in the ‘Education Partner of the Year’ categories.
