Aware Group today announced it has earned the Analytics on Microsoft Azure advanced specialisation. This specialisation is a validation of a partner’s capability in planning and delivering tailored analytics solutions, following Microsoft and industry best practices.
The Analytics on Microsoft Azure advanced specialisation 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 are starting to recognise the value of effective data and analytics strategies, but struggle with their implementation. As a Gold Microsoft partner, Aware Group has proven experience delivering customised Microsoft analytics solutions using Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Databricks – ensuring it is well-positioned to capture this market opportunity.
“Working with our partner Aware Group we have been able to not only adjust but transform our approach to become a data driven airport where AI and decision-making tools augment our workforce and drive better outcomes,” said Jonathan Good, General Manager Technology and Marketing at Auckland Airport.
Aware Group will help its clients 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. Holding this specialisation also gives Aware Group access to a greater number of programs, partner funding, and incentives to the benefit of its customers.
Jourdan Templeton, Chief Technology Officer at Aware Group, is proud of the expertise of the Aware Group team.
“Holding the Analytics on Microsoft Azure advanced specialisation is a third-party verification of our specialised technical capabilities,” said Templeton.
“It is testament to the highly skilled team that we are not just a Gold Microsoft Partner but have earned this latest advanced specialisation.”
“This underscores our efforts to collectively hone our skills in-market, delivering value, insight and innovation for all of our clients and partners.”
Matt Bostwick, Partner Director at Microsoft New Zealand, added, “It used to be that a business’s success depended on how well it managed its cashflow, supply chain and customer relationships. Now that’s becoming how well it manages data. Analytics specialists such as Aware Group are vital to helping customers use the data they have better, generating useful insights that transform their entire operations, from optimising back-office processes and resourcing to driving deeper customer engagement. As this specialisation demonstrates, Aware Group are leaders in helping customers build stronger businesses in a scalable, secure, and cost-effective way.”
