What does it mean to be a Microsoft Power BI Partner?

The Microsoft partner network, founded in 1992, works with companies that provide technological and/or business solutions and extends worldwide today. It functions as a massive and international community of companies—currently comprising more than 640,000 companies around the world, with hundreds in Spain. Thanks to this partnership, companies can deliver better service to their customers because Microsoft provides them with a set of tools and platforms that help them enhance their technical capabilities. In this way, Microsoft Power BI partners have the ability to continually improve and enrich their offerings and solutions, as well as their relationships with their customers. Through effort, a drive for improvement, and teamwork, we aim to progress so that other companies can grow with us.

On the other hand, Microsoft awards companies each year that have performed well and achieved the best results in terms of their technical skills. Specifically, the partner network allows accreditation of skills in various technical fields such as app development, data analysis, the use of cloud platforms, or data centers, among others. Microsoft grants credentials in two categories: gold (the highest credential) or silver (the second-highest credential) to leading companies in each field. As previously mentioned, Bismart had the honor of being named the best Microsoft partner in the world at the Microsoft Inspire event in 2013, and over time, we have received multiple distinctions that position us as one of the top Microsoft gold partners in Spain:

  • 2017 Data Analytics Gold Certified Microsoft Partners
  • 2017 Cloud Services Gold Certified Microsoft Partners

What is Power BI?

Microsoft Power BI is a business-oriented data analysis and data visualization tool, similar to Tableau or QlikView. If you're interested in learning about the advantages and disadvantages of each of these tools, you can read our comparison between Power BI, Tableau, and QlikView.

Power BI includes various applications that are much more intuitive than other tools and has capabilities for designing attractive and practical charts, visuals, and reports. Additionally, Power BI has recently updated its visualization creation capabilities.

It is essentially a tool that promotes data analysis, data governance, and business intelligence strategies.

What does Bismart do?

Bismart is a consultancy that provides business solutions to other companies based on technology, data analysis, and business intelligence. In other words, we help businesses solve problems, grow, and progress by creating custom technology solutions tailored to their business needs.

As a Microsoft Power BI partner, we work to help companies maximize the value of their data and ensure that the use and processing of data are not only appropriate—many companies have large amounts of data but don't know how to make Big Data useful and beneficial—our intention is to make it optimal. That's why we work on data integration in all aspects as well as data visualization. Additionally, based on data analysis, we advise companies to gain a better understanding of the state and situation of their business. This way, the companies we work with can identify their strengths, areas that could be improved or enhanced, and their insecurities or problem areas.

Furthermore, our focus on data allows us to assist companies in predicting future scenarios and anticipating future situations through scenario simulation and advanced analytics with predictive algorithms. Predicting horizons allows us to provide prescriptive analysis, meaning transforming the results achieved through the analysis of a reality that has not yet occurred.

The use of tools and technological processes to automate processes, integrate data, and make decisions based on insights has become a crucial methodology for companies to thrive and not remain stagnant in a context where technology has transformed all processes and activities, not only of the companies but also of their customers. Inadequate use of data and its wastage translates, more than ever, into insufficient business operations.

At Bismart, we accompany organizations throughout the entire process, resulting in better strategic decision-making, risk prevention, process automation, innovation, digital transformation, and increased profitability. In short, we apply business intelligence environments so that our clients become data-driven organizations.
