Frost & Sullivan’s global team of Growth Pipeline experts continually identifies and evaluates growth opportunities across multiple industries, technologies, and regions of the world. As part of this ongoing effort, the team identifies companies that consistently develop growth strategies that are based on a visionary understanding of the future and that effectively address new challenges and opportunities. This approach involves the deployment of best practices and strategic analytics across a value chain. Against this backdrop, Frost & Sullivan recognized NetApp® AI with a 2022 Best Practices Enabling Technology Leadership Award in the North American AI healthcare solutions industry.
