Durham, N.C. (Dec 2, 2016) – Core Compete, a global consulting firm that enables organizations to deliver value from big data, today announced that it is the first partner to earn all three competency badges offered by SAS. The competency badges are a mark of distinction to SAS partners who have demonstrated a deep commitment to SAS knowledge and capabilities in analytics, data management and visualization.

“We strongly believe that SAS is the only integrated platform that is capable of helping enterprises with all aspects of their big data challenges. We continue to ensure that we are at the cutting edge of adoption of this platform to create business value,” said Shiva Kommareddi, Managing Partner, Core Compete.

Core Compete is a Gold-level SAS partner. Competency badges are awarded by the SAS Partner Program to partners who demonstrate their organization’s expertise in three major categories across three tracks: sales, technical sales and post-sales. Competency in all three tracks demonstrates that the partner has the expertise to sell SAS software licenses; use SAS software to produce insightful visualizations, generate predictive models and integrate and improve the quality of data; and program, install, configure, implement and administer SAS software.

“Core Compete consistently brings the best of SAS analytics programs to life for its customers, with a tremendous capability across all three of our competency paths,” said Donna Peek, director of Partner Enablement and Operations at SAS. “We’re pleased to award them all three of our competency badges as a distinction of their abilities and resources in these important areas of investment – the first of our partners to earn all three badges.”
