- ….Hello, my name is Albina. I am currently a Cloud Solution Architect working with Azure offerings. I’d say I am not your typical solution architect as my background is actually in Business Administration that I’ve studied at Stockholm’s University and I really like strategic management. I moved into IT as a developer a couple of years ago to follow my passion for technology. Working in this part of the business gives me opportunity to combine both strategic management and IT, while being part of Microsoft makes this work even more fun and developing. There are endless opportunities to learn and try new things, and you have access to a bunch of resources through our library, as well as industry experts through the internal communities. When I am not working, I try new food together with my friends, drag them all on big group trips and events, or do yoga.
- …..I am Dennis van de Wege, Cloud Solutions Architect on the field of Azure Apps & Infra. I was never the IT guy. I actually wanted to become a fighter pilot for the Royal Air Force in the Netherlands. Then at the beginning of 2017 a company from Rotterdam reached out to me if I was interested in a traineeship working with hybrid cloud. I accepted their offer and rolled into the program. This changed my life.
- After two years I was contacted by Microsoft. As a CSA my work basically is to be the trusted technical advisor of my customers. I am the technical person that helps customers with technical questions, concerns and issues. One example is that I lead deep technical architecture discussions with senior customer executives, architects, IT Management and developers to drive core infrastructure solutions and data centre migrations. Another example is that I can reach out to various resources within Microsoft for specific knowledge. Within my work it’s also great that I always keep learning. You have the opportunity to teach, to learn and to visit and meet with colleagues that are the absolute world experts in their field.
