Empired achieves new heights in Microsoft certification

Becomes one of the highest certified data and intelligence partners in the region

IT services provider, Empired has managed to become one of the highest-certified Microsoft Data and Intelligence partners in the A/NZ region.

The company picked up another certification from Microsoft in Data Platform and also maintains a membership in three Red Carpet Programs - Internet of Things, Cortana Analytics and Power BI.

Empired data insights national business manager, Ben Johnson, said since establishing the data insights team four months ago, it has more than tripled in size, and become a significant capability for Empired.

“The gold certification and the Red Carpet membership demonstrate Empired’s capabilities and commitment to data analytics,” Johnson said.

Johnson explained the Red Carpet Programs are invitation only and partners are selected for demonstrating a specific level of capability, innovation, and expertise in the relevant platform.

The invitations are based on customer endorsements and a range of other criteria.

“Empired’s involvement in these programs gives our consultants access to in-depth training and education programs, keeping their skills at the cutting edge and empowering them to leverage the current and future capabilities of Microsoft platforms to solve customer challenges,” he said.

Empired’s data insights business has teams in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, and New Zealand.

The New Zealand team recently scored a Microsoft Partner of the Year award.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
