New Zealand managed services provider Intergen has been invited to join both the Microsoft Azure IoT Red Carpet partner program and the Microsoft Power BI Red Carpet partner program.

Microsoft Carpet partner programs are invite-only groups of Microsoft Partners, exclusively selected for demonstrating an “exceptional level of capability, innovation and expertise” in Microsoft’s tools and platforms.

“We are delighted to have been recognised amongst this group of technology leaders in the Business Intelligence and Internet of Things space, and are very excited about the opportunities it will open up for our clients,” says Simon Bright, CEO, Intergen.

“We pride ourselves on our close connection with Microsoft and our early and deep exposure to new technologies, particularly as this allows us to share thought leadership and bring this knowledge to our local markets for the benefit of our clients’ technology roadmaps.

“As members of these two exclusive Red Carpet programmes, we will further increase our ability to do this.”

Bright says participation in the Microsoft Red Carpet program gives Intergen consultants access to in-depth training and education programs, providing them with opportunities to understand and leverage the complex technology roadmap ahead.

Participation in the Microsoft Power BI Red Carpet program ensures that its clients continue to have access to the highest level of knowledge, service and the best resources available in the Data Insight sphere.

“We believe the invite is not only a recognition of many successful Power BI implementations done for our clients since Power BI has been released, but also a chance to showcase our capabilities in delivering business value in record timeframes,” Bright adds.

Microsoft’s Power BI is one of the leading Business Intelligence products in the market as Gartner has positioned Microsoft as a Leader, for the ninth consecutive year, in the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.

“This exciting cloud-based business analytics tool that transforms an organisation’s most crucial data into powerful visuals on a live dashboard,” Bright adds.

For Bright, Intergen’s membership in the Microsoft Azure IoT Red Carpet program allows the company to expand its Internet of Things capability.

“With research firm Gartner predicting 6.4 billion devices connected to networks by the end of 2016 and up to 21 billion connected devices within five years, this is one of the most exciting areas to enable new opportunities to improve processes and outcomes, bringing new efficiencies to enterprise business models,” Bright believes.
