TULSA, Okla., June 22, 2011 – Stonebridge, a leading information technology consulting firm, today announced that it has won the “Compete to Win” award as part of Microsoft’s Central Region Partner Awards Program for 2011. The honor marks the second consecutive year Stonebridge has won the coveted Microsoft Partner Award.
Stonebridge was chosen out of an extensive field of Microsoft partners for delivering market-leading customer solutions built on Microsoft technology. The Microsoft Partner Program Awards recognize Microsoft Partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year. According to Microsoft acknowledgement to Stonebridge, “This honor goes to the partner who recognizes key competitive wins achieved and who understands their customers’ business and consistently demonstrates value.”
Stonebridge’s award-winning solution is a Web-based corporate data management dashboard for a Fortune 500 energy company. The custom SharePoint-powered solution provides executive management with an “at a glance” status of the company’s performance via defined key performance indicators (KPIs).
“On behalf of the entire Stonebridge team, I want to thank not only Microsoft but also our shared customers for this honor,” said Stonebridge Vice President Mike Keys, who oversees the company’s Microsoft partnership. “We are committed to creating business solutions that help our customers achieve measurable and sustainable improvements in their people, processes and technology. Receiving this award for the second straight year is a testament to our collective efforts.”
The award-winning dashboard leverages SharePoint as a portal to present unified scorecards of all company KPIs in one place along consistent filtering options. The solution also provides intranet collaboration and analysis sites for the company’s diverse operations. Stonebridge worked directly with business leaders to create reporting and analysis capabilities that aligned with defined performance metrics. Stonebridge also examined the source data systems – from spreadsheets and production data to Oracle-based financials and SAP ERP systems housing safety and compliance data – in order to determine the requisite data structures from which the target summary-level and operational data would be extracted for analysis.
To deliver this solution, Stonebridge provided a complete range of Microsoft-centric business intelligence, enterprise content management, and application development services, including project management, information architecture and design, ETL development, SharePoint portal architecture and development, report development using SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), PerformancePoint dashboard development, InfoPath forms development, and database assessment and mentoring support.
