Hoofddorp, 16 November 2023 – Macaw has been named a Microsoft featured partner for Fabric, Microsoft’s end-to-end analytics solution. The company was honored among some top global Microsoft Solutions Partner for demonstrating excellence in innovation, in-depth knowledge and successfully implementing Microsoft Fabric at a customer site.
Value for customers
Macaw achieved this status thanks to its innovative track record, embracing new technologies to make customers successful and continuously investing in training and development. At an early-stage Macaw successfully helped a client in the manufacturing and utilities sector to take advantage of Microsoft Fabric’s potential. In doing so, Macaw met the requirements specified by Microsoft.
In addition – and this was not part of the requirements – Macaw hosted numerous Fabric Roadshows to show customers AI capabilities, answer questions and concerns and map tooling to ambitions.
‘We help our clients to innovate in the era of AI and combine data, tech and creativity to leverage Microsoft solutions and accelerate business value. – Taams, CEO Macaw.
