Platform Housing has selected Simpson Associates to design and deliver its new Microsoft Azure data platform.
Simpson Associates will be working with Platform Housing to deliver an Azure data platform and Power BI project, with the aim of consolidating data from multiple housing management systems and ensuring uninterrupted access to reporting and analytics for its day-to-day operations.
The first stage of the project comprises a series of data-discovery workshops, then moving on to the delivery of a data-landing zone, designed to provide a secure and scalable environment for hosting data and analytics workloads in Azure.
The whole project is expected to deliver greater business value through accelerated data-driven innovation across data engineering, data science and analytics.
Rob Fletcher, director of data and applications, Platform Housing, said, “An important element of our supplier selection process was the capacity for skills and knowledge transfer. It was clear that Simpson Associates had the expertise and experience needed to deliver the data platform, but their approach to working in collaboration with our internal team to enable upskilling gave us confidence that they were the right partner.”
