Jean-Francois Guertin, CTO of EdGraph, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "EdGraph is thrilled to expand our partnership with Microsoft and advance the vision of open-source technologies like OEA and Ed-Fi. Leveraging open-source allows organizations to retain their investment in analytics, rather than building on proprietary ecosystems that have a finite life cycle."

Maria Langworthy, Principal Product Manager at Microsoft Education and one of the founders of OEA, said, "The OEA team is delighted to see EdGraph reach the Advanced Partner level. The Ed-Fi module accelerates data analytics in education by seamlessly integrating multi-year and multi-district data using advanced technologies like data Lakehouse architecture and Synapse pipelines. Its streamlined setup process enables the quick creation of a SQL Serverless database, saving time and resources for educational institutions. EdGraph contribution in developing the Ed-Fi module for OEA is a valuable open-source asset that will empower districts and state departments of education to accelerate their data integration and analytics initiatives. We look forward to continuing our relationship with EdGraph."

Together, we are shaping the future of education analytics through collaboration and innovation.
