Last November, we reached a significant milestone by joining the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub. We’re excited to share our journey and the incredible benefits we’ve gained from this prestigious program.

Our partnership with the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub has been pivotal in enhancing our AI-based digital consultant, PETE™. Here’s how each program component played a crucial role:

  1. Azure Credits💳: These credits allowed us to explore various Microsoft Azure services like Azure Data Factory, Databricks, Synapse Analytics, and Azure SQL Server. This hands-on evaluation helped refine our technology approach and improve PETE’s capabilities.
  2. GitHub Enterprise🛠️: Central to our Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, GitHub Enterprise streamlined our coding projects, ensuring secure collaboration among our global team.
  3. Visual Studio Enterprise🖥️: This suite provides comprehensive tools for designing and deploying complex applications, enhancing our software development process.
  4. Dynamics 365🔄: These tools transformed our client engagement, streamlining sales and customer service processes.
  5. Power Apps and Power Automate⚡: No-code/low-code solutions optimized our operations and enhanced PETE’s features, bringing deeper ITSM process insights.
  6. Power BI📊: At the core of our PETE Cockpit, Power BI allowed us to visualize PETE and Process Scores, aligning with modern SaaS requirements.
  7. Training and Mentorship🎓: This support helped us build a scalable, reliable, and cost-effective platform.
  8. Advancing with AI and ML🚀: We’re integrating advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, thanks to the resources from Microsoft.

These tools not only facilitated PETE’s technical development but also contributed to our strategic business growth, enabling us to redefine our product and services for the modern tech landscape.

As an added benefit, we’re realizing approximately €2,000 a month in cost savings on the Microsoft products and services we utilize.

In conclusion, the Microsoft for Startups Founders Hub is an essential partner for startups in the tech sector, fostering growth and innovation. For Process Squad GmbH, it accelerates development and amplifies our potential to make a significant impact.
