The Analytics on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization can only be earned by partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their analytics planning and deployment practices.
More businesses recognize the value of effective data and analytics (BI and AI) strategies but struggle to implement them. Partners with proven experience delivering customized Microsoft analytics solutions using Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Databricks are well-positioned to capture this market opportunity.
These partners can help customers better integrate endlessly scalable analytics platforms into their businesses to quickly capture insights from all their data across data warehouses and big data analytics systems.
"Many companies understand the value of collecting data, however, collecting data is not enough. Data only becomes valuable when you are able to see connections or make predictions. To realize the real value and help support business goals, data must be managed throughout the full data lifecycle. This is more than just implementing a Business Intelligence report or a Machine Learning algorithm. To achieve this in an industrialized way, more and more organizations are making the move from a traditional data warehouse to a modern data cloud platform. We therefore apply the 3 P methodology: Platform, People, Process", says Bram Wauters - Senior Solution Manager Data & AI at Inetum-Realdolmen.
Andrew Smith, General Manager, Partner Program Management at Microsoft added, “The Analytics on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to building transformative and secure analytics solutions on Azure. Inetum-Realdolmen clearly demonstrated that they have both the skills and the experience to help our customers harness the power of insight and transform their businesses in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way."
