I have been awarded 7 times as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in the Business Applications category. This award is given out not based on just technical expertise but on community contribution (learn more). It’s about openly sharing what you know and helping others be successful in solving similar problems.
The biggest benefit of the MVP program for me and my customers is the access to a global network of professionals working with Dynamics 365 and Power Platform technologies – as well as the posibility for co-operation with the Microsoft product teams (under NDA, naturally). This has given me perspective on how companies and tech professionals around the world use these tools and what opportunities they offer for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
What I know
My background is in designing and delivering solutions on a platform that was called Microsoft Dynamics CRM way back when. Fast forward to today and you’ll find the same technical foundation under the Power Platform, but with the name Common Data Service (CDS). It runs both the enterprise scale systems of Dynamics 365 and the simple Power Apps for small teams.
I take pride in understanding the broad stack of technology that Microsoft offers and knowing how it can be linked with business applications on Power Platform. CDS gives me the tools to configure data models, business logic, security, administration and data connectivity. Power Apps offers the UI layer where I can then bring this solution to life via Model-driven and Canvas apps.
That’s the geeky part. All this awesome tech will be meaningless if we can’t solve your actual business problems with it. So, let’s not start with the “what” but rather makes sure we’ve covered the “why” and “how” before diving deeper, okay?
How I work
Find me on social media
Blogging since 2008
In addition to writings on the Forward Forever team blog, I’ve been writing about Microsoft business applications in my personal blog for quite some time. In Thinking Forward I’ve analyzed the strategic direction of Microsoft, covered the latest product announcements for Dynamics 365 and Power Apps, dived deep into the commercial aspect of product licensing – to name a few topics.

@ccellar "Free" for users to access, not free to consume unlimited resources. I'm betting this will increasingly be the direction to which #PowerPlatform licensing is heading. Consumption based model cannot be avoided in the long run, now they just need a PAYG model instead of prepaid.Read More

@RobertPeledie All I can say is: it's DIFFERENT people building it. It's been an amazing contrast since I stopped being the familiar #MSDyn365 consultant and put on my #PowerPlatform hat instead. Very different dialogue with customers.Read More
At the same time, #PowerPlatform is getting more & more intertwined with #MicrosoftTeams that now has 115 DAILY active users. Thanks to Project Oakadale, the number of app makers & MAU for Power Platform may well skyrocket soon:Read More
