NetApp AI has won a 2021 Stratus Award for artificial intelligence (AI) from the Business Intelligence Group. The Stratus Awards recognize companies and individuals who are innovating in the cloud and who provide offerings that are truly differentiated in the market. NetApp won the “Top Products/Services” category for AI.

The Business Intelligence Group seeks out and rewards those with vision, creativity, and persistence, all hallmarks of leading companies and individuals around the globe. Their industry awards programs rely on industry leaders who volunteer to read, score, and judge nominations.
