    We have some exciting news to share with you guys!

    You’re probably wondering why we haven’t posted in a quite a long time and the reason behind that is that we’re focusing our time and effort to completely take over our local market: Panama.

    I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time, and finally Powered Solutions is ready to take the big step and deliver training and services to all the businesses in Panama.

    We started operating from Panama in 2013, but our focus until a couple of months ago was the international market with customers all over the world.

    We have a very aggressive plan to reach the top of the Partner ecosystem here in Panama. A clear roadmap of where we want to be, how we’re going to do it and what we plan to do – so if you’re near in Panama, you’ll be hearing more from us pretty soon.

  • Microsoft Certifications Goals– Can a Excel/Power BI guy Achieve this???

    For the past few months I’ve been getting more and more serious about my business and the certifications that I hold.

    So far I’ve been able to accomplish the ones below as an individual:

    MCSA: BI Reporting - Certified 2017Microsoft Certified Trainer 2018-2019

    and just a few weeks ago I was able to have my company (Powered Solutions) attain the Silver Data Analytics Competency:

    With that in mind, I’ve been thinking about the next steps that I need to take in order to have my company be a Gold Partner and in order to make that happen I need to have enough customer references (those are ready to go!) and I also need to have enough professionals in my organization that have the correct certifications – starting with myself.

    My next goal: Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert: Data Management and Analytics
