The Business Intelligence specialization validates a partner's deep expertise in creating and deploying Microsoft BI solutions with Power BI interactive reports, real-time dashboards, and powerful analytics, enabling customers to visualize their business data and generate actionable insights to help build BI solutions at enterprise scale.
Microsoft has been consistently recognized as a Magic Quadrant Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Analytics and BI, and a BI specialization with Microsoft technologies offers partners a deeper set of capabilities to profit from this large, high-growth opportunity.
Partners with the BI specialization further differentiate their organization beyond an active Solutions Partner for Data & AI (Azure) or Solutions Partner for Business Applications designation with demonstrated knowledge, validated experience and capabilities, and documented success in supporting customer adoption of BI solutions.
Partners who meet the comprehensive requirements and attain the specialization:
- Will receive a customer-facing label displayed on their business profile in Microsoft AppSource under the Business Intelligence specialization filter.
- Gain access to specific Microsoft go-to-market programs.
- Are prioritized in customer searches to drive new business.
- Can generate a certified letter from Microsoft that verifies the specialization they've earned.
