More businesses recognize the value of effective data and analytics strategies but struggle to implement them. Companies 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.

RSM’s strategic relationship with Microsoft means customers can 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.

The Analytics on Microsoft Azure specialization highlights the partners who can be viewed as most capable when it comes to building transformative and secure analytics solutions on Azure. RSM 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.

“Earning advanced specialization for Analytics on Microsoft Azure demonstrates more than our technical capabilities, it also shows our commitment to working closely with Microsoft to produce successful business outcomes and experiences for our mutual clients,” said Mike Gillis, RSM US LLP’s Microsoft Alliance leader. “As one of the few partners with capabilities across all six Microsoft solution areas, we will continue to look for opportunities to invest in our Microsoft capabilities and further differentiate ourselves to better serve our mutual clients.”

Ron Draganowski, data and digital services, data analytics, leader at RSM added“The promise of new data technologies such as generative artificial intelligence (as leveraged by ChatGPT) are accelerating corporate interest in analytics. We are excited about this new recognition by Microsoft, and through Microsoft Azure analytics products and Service Fabric, we have the tools required to securely deliver analytics solutions which can maximize the value of each client’s data, and at scale.”

RSM has earned the Analytics on Microsoft Azure specialization, a validation of a provider’s capability in planning and delivering tailored analytics solutions following Microsoft and industry best practices.

The Analytics on Microsoft Azure specialization can only be earned by providers who meet stringent criteria around customer success and employee skill as well as pass a third-party audit of their analytics planning and deployment practices.
