The Challenge:
Your critical business data is trapped in legacy systems

Microsoft Partner information is located in disparate systems accessible via a wide array of user interfaces—it is not easily discovered and consumed by the team members who need it. The Microsoft Partner Program domain consists of data from 12+ distinct platforms built independently and integrated in an ad hoc method. Partner Program data ranges from simple attributes like name and location, to partner level, to sales generated over the lifetime of the relationship. In order for Microsoft to best leverage its Partner relationships, it needed to be able to easily locate and consume the data available, without an adverse impact on the existing systems.

Our Solution:
A single point of access to your data

Leveraging the myBI platform, Cinetix Solutions introduced new Business Intelligence tools to the Microsoft Partner organization to increase the value, visibility, and discoverability of all partner BI assets. The myBI platform is a hosted, integrated, and configurable Business Intelligence portal, providing expanded reporting, data mining and Business Intelligence (BI) capabilities. It allows business groups to expose the right information to the right users in the right format, and to gain business insight with Microsoft BI tools.

The Challenge:
Your salesforce needs enterprise-wide, consistent tools to meet their sales targets

Optimizing mountains of data to streamline and create consistent actionable information is a formidable challenge for Microsoft Corporation’s US Enterprise Product Group Sales Team. Prior to this content management consolidation and Business Intelligence effort, the critical assets were spread across individual desktops, varied ad hoc SharePoint sites, file shares, email threads, and the CRM system. The information was not searchable nor consistently accessible by geography, account hierarchy, or team role.

Our Solution:
A single tool to organize and quickly access your data

Recognizing the need for experienced vendor support, Microsoft brought in proven solution providers from Cinetix Solutions. Our consultants helped to identify and refine business requirements and provide project leadership in executing the development, test, and delivery of the solution.
