Professional services organisation Valcon has demonstrated its cloud analytics prowess, by obtaining an advanced specialisation from Microsoft Azure. The achievement marks Valcon out as a skilled delivery partner of Azure’s analytics suite.

Microsoft Azure, often referred to as Azure, is a cloud computing service operated by Microsoft for application management via Microsoft-managed data centres. Modern technology customers are looking for highly skilled specialised partners, and their demands are more complex than ever – so to help its clients find such skilled operators, Microsoft provides advanced specialisations accreditations across a multitude of areas.

Microsoft advanced specialisations validate a firm’s capability to deliver specialised services and support according to Microsoft’s highest technical standards with an independent audit. In the case of the analytics field, the advanced specialisation rank validates a firm’s capability to plan and deliver tailored Microsoft analytics solutions using Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Azure Data Factory, and Azure Databricks.

Speaking on the firm’s achievement, Twan van Rossum, Partner at Valcon, said, “We continue to invest in our Microsoft skills to serve our customers on their digital transformation journey. Today and in the future.”

Bolstered by recent mergers with First Consulting, First Technology, First Consulting UK and Viqtor Davis, Valcon now forms a North-West European community helping clients across national borders.
