Challenges of being a Solution Architect in the ever-expanding Microsoft cloud
See who is on when!
In the olden days, the boundaries between responsibilities were much clearer, and a Solution Architect rarely needed to know anything outside their product or field of expertise. In the ever-expanding Microsoft cloud ecosystem, the role of a Solution Architect is filled with challenges that demand ever-greater knowledge and flexibility. Challenges that pose a risk to companies as well as people, pushing both to a level that becomes unsustainable. Join Yannick in this session where he speaks from first-hand experience - coming from SharePoint, expanding to Microsoft 365, Azure, Power Platform, and Dynamics 365 - on how he sees the role of a Solution Architect evolving. From responsibilities and knowledge, to the creation of an “Ecosystem Architect”.
Microsoft Solution Architect @ Qubix | Business Applications & M365 Development MVP
Yannick (a Microsoft 365 Development & Business Applications MVP) is born and raised in SharePoint, starting out his career in 2011 when SharePoint 2010 was still new and shiny. The changing reality of the cloud made him expand his knowledge to the whole of Microsoft 365, Azure, and Power Platform. He is a Managing Partner and Cloud Solution Architect at Qubix, a Belgium-based consultancy firm, responsible for the technical underpinnings of products and solutions. Problem solving and development are his passion, still working day to day with code. He always asks the important questions: How does it work? What do you want to achieve? Does it have an API? Do we really need development for this? Where's the coffee?
