Kyligence Achieves a Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Competency

Kyligence demonstrates best-in-class capability and market leadership through demonstrated technology success and customer commitment.


San Jose, California, United States, April, 15, 2019 — Kyligence, a provider of intelligent, Big Data analytics technology and solutions, today announced it has attained a gold Cloud Platform competency, demonstrating a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world and distinguishing itself within Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.


To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects, meet a performance (revenue and or consumption/usage) commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.


Kyligence has worked with Microsoft to seamlessly integrate with HDInsight (Hadoop & Spark), SQL DW, Blob Storage, and the Azure Data Lake Store. Kyligence has also built a one-stop analysis platform, Kyligence Cloud, upon the Azure elastic architecture. Combined with Microsoft’s industry-leading products, Power BI and Excel, as well as machine learning and IoT applications, the Kyligence and Microsoft joint-solution provides end-to-end intelligent analytics services in the cloud. The advantages of this solution include:


• Enterprises can migrate traditional Data Warehouse and business intelligence (BI) capabilities to the Hadoop/Spark Big Data platform. The joint solution provides superfast analytics on petabyte-scale datasets, supports a large number of concurrent user queries, and transparently accelerates user queries while protecting enterprise investments in existing technologies.


• AI-based data modeling algorithms provide enhanced data modeling and
processing, accelerate data mining, reduce the reliance of business people on IT teams, and unlocks the productivity of those IT teams.


• Whether it’s multidimensional dashboards, self-service data exploration, interactive analysis, or ad-hoc queries, the Kyligence solution seamlessly integrates with major BI tools. Business users can easily conduct data-analysis and make decisions without coding. The solution enables data-users to grow the business.


• Azure-based technologies, Hadoop, global deployment, elastic scaling, and pay-as-you-go models have lowered the barriers to adoption of Big Data. Operation and maintenance are outsourced to professional teams to reduce the difficulty and cost of operation and maintenance.


“During our first years as a startup, we saw firsthand the tremendous contributions made by Microsoft to help entrepreneurs grow and succeed. Through close cooperation with Microsoft, Kyligence is actively promoting its technologies and products across the globe, leveraging Microsoft’s markets and channels, and this Microsoft Cloud Platform competency showcases our expertise in and commitment to today’s technology market and demonstrates our deep knowledge of Microsoft’s products and services,” says Kyligence co-founder and CEO Luke Han. “We plan to accelerate our customers’ success by serving as technology advisors for their business demands.”


“By achieving a Gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner (OCP) at Microsoft Corp. “These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions.”


The Cloud Platform competency is designed for partners to capitalize on the growing demand for infrastructure and software as a service (SaaS) solutions built on Microsoft Azure. Differentiate your company with the Cloud Platform competency, and you will be eligible for Signature Cloud Support, Azure deployment planning services, Azure sponsored credit, direct partner support, eligibility to deploy certain on-premises, internal use software on Microsoft Azure, and access to the cloud platform roadmap.


The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.
