I’ve recently been nominated and accepted by Microsoft as a Partner Technology Solutions Professional (P-TSP)! I’ll be focused on Office 365 and Azure, assisting the MS Partner community with cloud adoption.
My day-to-day job will remain the same where i deliver pre-sales engagements or architectural guidance and implementation; however i will now have access to the same resources as internal Microsoft TSPs and directly assist Microsoft resources and customers. Basically, the job entails presenting, demoing and educating companies about the Microsoft cloud and its benefits and making sure it is a good fit for their business and technical requirements.
The cloud has really helped rejuvenate my career and opened multiple new possibilities…i was starting to get frustrated just being “the Exchange guy”. I’ve been working in IT for over 10 years, it’s a career which has been good to me and allowed me to travel widely; it eventually brought me to Canada where I got married and recently became a father. I feel that this is a great opportunity and a great challenge which came just at the right time. Hopefully more blog content will occur as a result!
