Simpson Associates earns Analytics on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization

Simpson Associates today announced that it has earned the Analytics on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization.  This is a validation of Simpson Associates’ capability in planning and delivering analytical solutions that follow Microsoft and industry best practices.  

The Analytics on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization – a specialization that only a very limited number of Microsoft Gold Cloud Partners can achieve due to its stringent criterion – will enable Simpson Associates customers to use the full breadth of their data assets to help build transformative and effective data and analytics strategies. To achieve this advanced specialization, Simpson Associates had to meet a stringent set of benchmarks around customer success and staff capabilities and pass a third-party audit for their analytics planning and deployment practices.   

Giles Horwood, Managing Director at Simpson Associates says: “I am thrilled as the ‘Analytics on Microsoft Azure Advanced Specialization’ comes on the back of recently being recognised at the Microsoft Business Applications Summit, where William Rathbone, one of our Principal Consultants was awarded the ‘Fastrack Recognized Solution Architect for Power BI,’ one of only two in the UK. This award recognises our investment in the Microsoft platform to ensure that we can deliver the highest quality solutions for our clients.

It is incredible that the business has achieved these two awards. By achieving the ‘Advanced Azure Analytics Specialization’ and being recognised as a ‘Fastrack Power BI Architect, it demonstrates our capabilities and our commitment to both our clients and our relationship with Microsoft to ensure that the solutions we deliver for our clients are best in class and help deliver true value across their organisations.
