Forceworks added to Microsoft’s Power BI Red Carpet Program (Press Release)

Forceworks, is pleased to announce their acceptance into Microsoft’s Power BI Red Carpet Program

Tampa, FL – The Power BI Red Carpet program is a new invitation only Microsoft program for a few selected Microsoft partners intended to help them develop and grow their practices through accelerated development of solutions and services based upon Microsoft Power BI. Through the Power BI Red Carpet program, Forceworks becomes eligible to receive special support services which include a number of Microsoft-funded trainings, tools and services designed to support their Power BI innovation and success in systems integration, solution/service development, consulting, support and other areas.

“We vigorously pursued this program” said Steve Mordue, CEO of Forceworks, “When you consider that 90% of the world’s data has been created over the last two years alone and companies that use analytics are 5x more likely to make faster decisions than their competitors, we wanted to be in front of this transformation”

As a leading Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online partner, Forceworks is keen on helping customers wring more actionable intelligence out of the data they are accumulating. Power BI extends the inbuilt dashboard capabilities of CRM significantly and brings in data from other platforms as well. Power BI transforms a company’s data into rich visuals they can collect and organize so they can focus on what matters to them. Staying in the know, spotting trends as they happen, and pushing their business further.

“For many of our customers “Big Data” is something they don’t think they need to worry about, but Big is relative” says Mordue “our customers have a lot more data than they are usually aware of, and we are hoping to help them surface, and act on that”

Power BI has moved out of SharePoint, and the new product is currently in Preview. There will be a free version and a Pro version for $9.99/user/month
