I am really proud to be awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) 2016. This is the sixth time I receive this award and it is a real honor to be part of this community and that Microsoft recognizes my contributions. This time I have been awarded as Office Servers and Services MVP.
The change in the name from Skype for business to a more generic title signifies the change within Microsoft and the move to a more cloud and integrated platform across products. For me this works well since I now work more with the Microsoft platform on-premises, in hybrid and in the cloud and help customers succeed with productivity in general.
I did a talk at Nordic Infrastructure Conference this February where I talked about how to succeed with productivity in Office 365 and EMS in a level 200 session, where Skype for Business is an important component for real-time collaboration. Check out the recording below
Being an MVP helps me stay current on the technology, have a great network to sync my ideas with and learn directly from Microsoft at the MVP Summit. Next up is that I am speaking at the Belgium E-Communications event April 26
