– Call to Action Below –

Are you a Microsoft Business Intelligence developer who has looked on longingly as those SQL Server DBAs have slaved away to reach the pinnacle of their professions to be crowned as a SQL Server MCM (now MCSM) – Microsoft Certified Solution Master?  And then to have the option to go even further and pursue a SQL Server MCA (Microsoft Certified Architect) certification?

Would you want to have an equivalent path for the Microsoft Business Intelligence developer? A full stack certification that demonstrates that the person attaining that certification has achieved master level skills across the entire spectrum of Microsoft Business Intelligence technologies.

I know that I certainly would.  If you would too, then you need to make sure your voice is heard.  Marco Russo (blog | twitter) posted as well about the history of the SSAS Maestro program that was supposed to be driver of a program like this.  Unfortunately, Microsoft has not seen it as a priority.  We need to let them know that we want a program like this.  There is also some good information in the comments of Marco’s post as well.

– Call to Action –

So here is the call to action: please, write an email to advcert@microsoft.com and tell them you would be interested in Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA) and Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) for Business Intelligence certifications. Make your voice heard!

    I have mailed them, and this is a great initiative. I also (as I’ve put on my blog at http://markgstacey.net/2013/08/25/bi-mcsm/) think that what we need is a pure BI MVP role as well
