Third 'gold' competency for Koorb

25 Jun 12

Kiwi IT company Koorb Consulting has been awarded its third ‘gold’ competency by Microsoft, adding the Business Intelligence qualification to its certifications in Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM.

To achieve the competency, each of Koorb’s Microsoft Certified IT Professionals (MCITPs) had to undergo a technical review assessing their knowledge of the Microsoft BI toolset. The company also had to demonstrate its licensing knowledge, undergo an assessment of its BI volume, and provide customer references to affirm its performance and delivery standards.

The achievement is part of a growth strategy targeting Business Intelligence which the company expects to continue in the immediate future, according to managing director Nicholas Birch.

"Attaining gold competency will help us continue to attract top quality dedicated BI consultants to deliver outstanding results to our customers as we expand this part of the practice,” Birch says.
