Let Us Quickly Get To Our Expert’s Point Of View.

Question 1- What according to you are some of the top Microsoft technology trends to look out for in 2022?

With a shift in app creation from traditional dev groups to citizen developers/power users, Power Platform has undoubtedly become a disruptor in the industry.

Question 2: What are some opportunities you would be looking at this year?

We will be finding more ways and newer avenues to integrate Microsoft with non-Microsoft solutions for different clients and help them boost their overall efficiency.

Question 3: Would you like to share some tips on Cloud Implementation/ Migration?

Keep in mind that you're dealing with moving targets. Technology, as well as its adoption and usage by companies changes on a regular basis. If you are attempting to apply a previously used approach to a new customer, proceed with caution.

Question 4: A piece of advice that you’d like to share with our readers?

Microsoft 365 is a collection of tools. It won't help you much until you know what you're trying to accomplish or what problems you're trying to solve. Focus on WHAT you're trying to do, not HOW it will work.

  • What is the best event that you attended recently? What were your key takeaways?
  • Most events were held virtually due to COVID-19, which had a different environment and made networking difficult. Over 100 people worldwide attended an information session I organized around using various Microsoft 365 apps and services to help with digital transformation, which was one of my most successful events recently. Despite the numbers, it's no substitute for face-to-face meetings.

  • What’s your success mantra?
  • Listen more, talk less. You'd be surprised just how much you can learn and get close to a solution.
