Microsoft is a $1 trillion company, with over 144,000 employees and operates in over 170 countries. It helped deliver the vision of "a computer in every home", and is focused on making the world more productive.

Microsoft pushes the boundaries of technology, not only through its cutting edge research, but also by leading the evolving debates (often by example) about diversity, accesibility, inclusion, and ethics both of the uses of technology and of the responsiblity an organisation has to its customers, employees and the planet. Microsoft leading the way in Cloud, Data, AI, Mixed Reality, and even Quantum computing.

So why would one of the world's largest companies want to work with one of the world's smallest?

Perspective.

We have a diverse customer base; every shape and size from many different sectors and industries. But there's one thing they all have in common - they have interesting problems that often require novel solutions. They tend to require us to push the limits or use products and services in new ways. This is incredibly valuable feedback for the Product Groups. We also have a reputation for not pulling our punches.

Expertise.

We are Microsoft Gold Partner for Cloud Platform, Data Platform, Data Analytics, DevOps, a Power BI Partner. We are deeply knowledgable about their products, technologes and languages. In some cases we wrote the book on the subject.

So when a Microsoft Product Group needs a trusted Partner help them steer their roadmap based on real world scenarios, put their new service through its paces to prove it's fit-for-purpose, create case studies of how we use their products, want to create demo & training materials to help customers adopt and embrace new technologies, or want us to share our learnings at a conference, they reach out to us.

Passion.

Endjin has two MVPs; an Azure MVP (co-founder Howard van Rooijen) and a Developer Technology MVP (Technical Fellow Ian Griffiths). We also run Azure Weekly and Power BI Weekly newsletters, which have 1000s of subscribers around the world. We love sharing the value we create and run ~30 open source projects across 6 different GitHub organisations.

In 2019 endjin became a .NET Foundation Corporate Sponsor along side other organisations who are helping to drive the future of .NET, such as AWS, DevExpress, Telerik, Pivotal, Insight, and Microsoft.

Commitment.

We owe much to Microsoft; they helped endjin get started (as you can see from the video above), they have challenged, encouraged, and supported us over the past 10 years. We hope that this partnership will grow and evolve, as both our organisations transform over the next decade.

Power BI Data Type Mappings

Power BI Data Type Mappings

Ed Freeman

If you've worked with Power BI at all, you'll have probably realised that there are numerous mediums through which you work with (potentially the "same") data. Data types across these mediums can be called different things, but actually refer to the same thing. They can also (unsurprisingly) be called different things and actually mean different things. It's useful to know what the corresponding data types are across these mediums, as you may need to, for example, convert queries from one format to another. This blog and containing report intend to clarify what the corresponding data types are across each of the separate mediums within Power BI.
An Overview of the Azure CNAB Quickstarts Library

An Overview of the Azure CNAB Quickstarts Library

Howard van Rooijen

The Azure CNAB Quickstarts Library helps you get up and running with CNAB and Porter. We've built quickstarts covering solutions like WordPress, Ghost, Mattermost, and data platforms like Apache Airflow, SQL Server AlwaysOn clusters and Kubernetes features like an nginx ingress controller and an Azure AD enabled OAuth2 Proxy. We've condensed all our learnings from the past 9 months of working on the project and turned them into a 10 minute video which explains all the key concepts. We hope this video helps accelerate your own CNAB & Porter epiphanies!

We help organizations of all sizes from start-ups to global enterprises across financial services, media & comms, retail & consumer goods, and professional services.
