Awarded Lync Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP)

Posted by Ståle Hansen on 01/04/2011


Today was a good day! I received an email from Microsoft presenting me with the 2011 Microsoft® Lync MVP Award for the first time. The mail stated: “This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Lync technical communities during the past year”. I am proud to be a Lync MVP and want to thank the people within Microsoft who nominated me and the community who share the same passion for technology. It is a good feeling to get recognition for the hard work and dedication you put in to your work and your hobby. I look forward to interact within the Lync MVP community.

What is the MVP Award?

The Microsoft MVP Award recognizes exceptional technical community leaders from around the world who voluntarily share their high quality, real world expertise with others. Microsoft MVPs are a highly select group of experts representing technology’s best and brightest who share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others. Worldwide, there are over 100 million participants in technical communities; of these participants, there are fewer than 4,000 active Microsoft MVPs.

Certified MCITP Enterprise Messaging Administrator 2010!

Posted by Ståle Hansen on 06/03/2010

Finally I got time to take the latest PRO exam for Exchange 2010. My score was 831 and it was a lot of questions about the new features in Exchange 2010 like DAG and RBAC. It was also questions about message hygiene and compliance. I scored max on designing and deploying Exchange 2010, and thats mostly because I spend most of my Exchange time doing just that. My lowest scores was on compliance, monitoring and security. Mostly because most of my customers don’t have big needs in those areas. By getting certified MCITP: EMA 2010 so soon after its release I became a Charter Member.

Here is some info about what it means to be a MCITP: EMA 2010

Candidates for this exam are responsible for the planning and deployment of the Exchange servers in an enterprise environment. They have a minimum of two years of experience administering, deploying, managing, monitoring, upgrading, migrating, and designing Exchange servers. 

The Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification helps validate that an individual has the comprehensive set of skills necessary to perform a particular job role, such as database administrator or enterprise messaging administrator. MCITP certifications build on the technical proficiency measured in the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications. Therefore, you will earn one or more MCTS certifications on your way to earning an MCITP certification. MCITP candidates are capable of deploying, building, designing, optimizing, and operating technologies for a particular job role. They make the design and technology decisions necessary to ensure successful technology implementation projects.
