Yes I got it again, awesome! Today I received an e-mail from Microsoft, that I am re-awarded for another year as Most Valuable Professional (MVP). This is my 3rd year as an MVP and it still feels like –WOW! I got the award in the Cloud and Datacenter Management space for my expertise and community work. Why is this so awesome?

  • Because I get the chance to address any issues to Microsoft program manager directly.
  • Invitation to the yearly MVP summit which takes place once a year in Redmond.
  • Connect to other bright MVP minds and technology leaders.
  • Getting special opportunities to speak at conferences world wide.
  • Having access to the latest product information and releases from Microsoft.
  • and so much more…

I would like to thank my employer itnetX which is supporting me in the best possible way, all the SCOM/OMS/PowerShell/System Center guys worldwide, many Microsoft MVPs (just a great community) and of course all the Microsoft employees.

Today is a very exciting and special day as I received a mail from Microsoft letting me know that I received the MVP award. I think it is a very proud moment in every IT Pro’s life when he gets this award. I am a now a extremely proud member of a worldwide expert community in the Cloud and Datacenter Management space. This expert group consists out of approx. 90 experts around the world. Receiving this award shows that Microsoft recognizes my work and contribution to the community for the past few years. I am really looking forward to help, contribute and exchange know-how with other MVP’s and meeting them in person at the MVP Global Summit in November 2015. Such a recognition pushes and motivates me to contribute even more and whenever possible to help or providing my expertise.

At this point I would like to thank my company itnetx for providing me such a fun job, the capability to develop my skills and also providing me with daily challenges. A special thank you to my boss MVP Marcel Zehner who always likes to push and let me make the impossible, possible. In addition I also would like to thank Microsoft Switzerland for all the interesting projects and people to talk to. Also here a special thank you to René Hanselmann for his unbelievable support. Last but not least, there are some fun guys who always supported me like MVP Thomas Maurer, MVP Michael Ruefli and of course all my colleagues at itnetx who really make every day a fun day.

For sure, there are all the other inspiring guys around the community from whom I learned a lot. Especially all the “old SCOM dinosaurs MVP’s” like Marnix Wolf, Cameron Fuller, Kevin Greene, Tao Yang of course Kevin Holman and many others.

Thank you all!
