In a world driven by the data economy, organizations that are able to leverage data as a strategic asset while making the most of AI, including generative AI and analytics, will thrive.

By collaborating with Microsoft on Fabric, we aim to help our clients address the fast-changing technology and competitive landscape to achieve their business goals with solid foundations and robust data and AI capabilities.

Capgemini Fabric Journey is the result of a strong joint-commitment from our respective leadership, and our participation in the early adoption program. Being involved in the private and public preview programs provided our teams with a great opportunity to learn, test the product, and provide feedback to Microsoft. While we were involved in the Cloud Early Adopter programs and Azure Advisory Council, we have also been launch partners for strategic initiatives such as Microsoft Purview, Sustainability Manager, Fabric, and Data Explorer. Last year, we were the first system integrator (SI) to achieve all the three Specialization Status on Azure Data & AI, and we are also in the top five Global System Integrators worldwide in terms of Azure Data Service Consumption.

Empowering our sales team

In parallel with our upskilling efforts, we have prioritized enabling our Global Sales team to effectively communicate the value of Microsoft Fabric to our clients. Dedicated Sales Enablement sessions have equipped our sales force to articulate the tangible impact of this partnership. Leaders such as Arun Ulag, Corporate Vice President, Azure Data, Microsoft, and Niraj Parihar, Insights & Data CEO at Capgemini, have provided invaluable insights into how data is driving transformation for our clients.

“Through our relationship and the transformative capabilities of Microsoft Fabric, we are accelerating data value creation for our customers. Capgemini’s investment in scaling Fabric competency, paving the way for excellence through our Fabric-specific assessment and certification via Capgemini’s OCEANS Tool, provides enterprises with the opportunity to unleash unified data and drive their organizations forward” – Niraj Parihar, Insights & Data CEO, Capgemini

“Microsoft Fabric is a game-changer for data analytics and AI. It enables organizations to harness the power of data from any source, at any scale, and with any tool. Capgemini  has been relentlessly focused on readiness of resources for delivery of Microsoft Fabric to our customers. Together, we can help businesses transform with data and AI, and create a data-powered future.” – Arun Ulag, Corporate Vice President, Engineering – Azure Data, at Microsoft.
