Exposé – the 2019 Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year, runner up in the category of Power BI

We are delighted to announce that Exposé has been named as the runner up for the 2019 Microsoft Global Partner of the year award in the category Power BI. We’re proud to add this global award to our two previous Microsoft Australian Partner Awards in 2016 and 2017. This achievement is no small feat given how young we are and is truly a testament to our talented and committed team; both in Adelaide and Melbourne.

The SA Water solution we submitted for this global award, followed our tried and tested best practice approach, ensuring a thorough understanding and delivery of business outcomes first, with the technology simply being the enabler. We constantly bend and push the envelope on technology, in this instance Power BI, to deliver the required outcomes, rather than make outcomes bend to technology.

“The modularity and scalability provided by the Power BI and the larger Azure platform allowed us to tailor something pretty unique to our customer and their challenging requirements. It allowed us to create a truly scalable, responsive and extendable IOT based analytical ecosystem that can be scaled out to thousands of devices, leveraging complex alarm rules controlled by users, visual remote monitoring and responsive actions, visual analysis, and now deep learning over the data.” Etienne Oosthuysen, National Manager, Technology and Solutions

“I am incredibly proud of our team for delivering a solution for SA Water which has not only over delivered on our customer’s requirements, but has now been recognised globally as a best of breed solution. Thank you to SA Water for trusting us with your data and allowing us to develop a forward thinking solution.” Kelly Drewett, General Manager

Power BI Report Server and BI Platform Upgrade – our PIRSA case study

The Department for Primary Industries and Regions South Australia  (PIRSA) faced an increased demand for consumption of Power BI dashboards and reports in a modern and centralised platform. With the business not quite ready to move to the cloud, we architected and created a solution that could serve as a stepping stone that could satisfy their needs, provide mobile reports, retain the ability to access paginated and Excel reports, leverage newer capabilities introduced into SQL Server since 2012 and provide a roadmap to later cloud adoption.

Building a unified model for consistent and coherent team reporting – our City of Adelaide case study

We created a unified model for the City of Adelaide across fragmented data sources (including on premise, cloud, file based and SaaS) to deliver a consist and coherent reporting solution across different teams.

Manual, costly and inconsistent preparation and curation effort were eliminated through the automated solution, delivering a single source of interactive Customer Program performance reporting.

Young, female and paving the way for technology in South Australia

We recently joined forces with St. Peter’s Girls’ Collegiate School, facilitating an 8-week data and analytics project for Year 11 students.  This exercise provided the girls with real-world skills development but most importantly, opened their eyes to what a career in IT can look like, dispelling some of the misconceptions in the process.
