At CloudFactory, our team virtually gathers every Friday to "shoutout" team members as a symbol of gratitude and recognition of growth. It's become a sacred Friday ritual that drives our team into the weekend feeling inspired, appreciated, and optimistic about their work.

And during the holiday season, shoutouts are even more critical.

Let's face it; the end of the year can be hectic trying to get important projects across the finish line. Showing gratitude and recognizing growth helps people feel positive emotions, relish good work experiences, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

This year, we want to extend these shoutouts to our clients because:

  • We're grateful to our innovative clients who trust us to be a part of their journey. Together, we deliver impactful solutions to businesses and consumers while creating career and growth opportunities for our data analysts.
  • We get to watch our clients shape the future. They're accelerating the road to a clean energy future, offsetting carbon footprints, transforming the future of transportation, improving cancer care, and much more!
  • We're in awe of their growth. The work they do is cutting-edge. It's revolutionary. But the success of their work isn't guaranteed. In fact, according to recent Gartner reports, 85% of AI and machine learning projects fail to deliver, and only 53% of projects make it from prototypes to production.

But with the right mix of people, processes, tools, and high-quality data, it’s possible to overcome those odds and grow like bamboo (one of our favorite CloudFactory principles)!

In 2022, we're honored to support developing and optimizing these incredible AI solutions that make lives easier for people and businesses worldwide.

Let the shoutouts begin!

Now LineVision is growing—and delivering data faster than ever before. CloudFactory’s work has helped the monitoring company achieve capacity-saving goals within weeks instead of months—and reduced turnaround time by 66%. Read LineVision's Case Study.
