This is the 5th Microsoft MVP award in a row since 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The Microsoft MVP award and the included opportunities add a huge benefit like the Microsoft MVP summit where you have the chance to talk to the Microsoft Product Groups, learn and place feedback. But of course the Microsoft MVP award also adds some other great advantages. In the past years I had the chance to travel all over the world and speak in different countries and events, and I met a lot of great people, which also became great friends.

Of course there are a lot of people I have to thank, but I want to keep the list as short as possible. I would like to thank my employer itnetX which is supporting me in the best possible way year over year, my current and former colleagues, the Microsoft MVP community and of course Microsoft employees in Redmond and all over the world.

Just had a look at my inbox and found out that I received the Cisco Champion Award for 2016, which is my third Cisco Champion Award in a row, after 2014 and 2015.

Since I do a lot of Datacenter projects with Microsoft and Cisco technologies I can see that the new partnership between Cisco and Microsoft is really paying off and we can expect even better integration and services from both companies.
