– 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
