You're Invited: How to Build a Business Intelligence practice


Tim Tetrick



Hello Microsoft Partners,

I am excited to extend an invitation to join an exclusive new JumpStart program designed to enhance your sales and technical skills with Microsoft technologies. Partners are raving about their participation in JumpStart programs to date:

"Great way to jump start a new business line!", “provided education and tools to get the job done"; "Good mix of sessions and homework - homework forced us to really pay attention and then generate real questions on details to bring to Q&A sessions"

Our new SMB JumpStart: Business Intelligence program kicks off on March 14 and you won’t want to miss this great opportunity designed to help your team learn how to build a Business Intelligence practice and successfully partner with Microsoft to capture the data and analytics market opportunity.
