Australian technology company Pulse continues to lead in global technology innovation, achieving coveted Gold Partner status with Microsoft for its new business intelligence visualisation tool, Pulse Analytics.
Pulse Analytics is a state-of-the-art suite of BI dashboard solutions providing real-time, actionable KPI dashboards to companies engaged in heavy industry such as mining, manufacturing, power generation, water treatment, infrastructure projects, and automated warehousing.
Backed by the resources of its parent, Pulse Mining Systems, the Pulse Analytics team is led by director Ashley Bosworth (pictured right), a qualified engineer who is gaining international recognition for his work in both analytics development and collaborative methodologies.
“We’re excited to achieve this Gold status,” said Mr Bosworth. “It allows us additional benefits such as software use rights and the marketing cachet that comes with achieving this level.”
In order to attain Microsoft Gold Certified partnership, the highest level given to Microsoft partners, the company had to first qualify for Microsoft Partner Network membership, and then meet Microsoft’s Gold status requirements such as having four qualified Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs) that have passed one or more of certification exams issued by Microsoft, as well as having one of them passing the licensing overview assessment and two that have passed the sales and marketing assessment, submitting and earning five customer references – to achieve the necessary 120 points.
“Being Gold means the company has earned the highest standards of Microsoft’s worldwide partnership program,” explained Mr Bosworth.
“The Pulse Analytics team prepared diligently for the necessary exams to make this happen. They did a great job.”
