We've built our entire company remotely, thanks entirely to Microsoft 365 and Azure. We are a testament to how small and medium businesses can successfully go mobile. No matter where our people are in the world, we use Teams for collaboration, Project Online to manage our implementations, Power BI to manage all metrics, Office 365 for all of our work, OneNote for our internal Knowledge Base, Stream for employee training, and obviously all of the security tools in the Microsoft aresenal! We cannot thank Microsoft enough for the freedom we get from being able to work from anywhere in the world!

In his off time, you can find him at his flying lessons.

Cata was born in Bucharest and now resides in WA. He's passionate about cooking (and loves pasta), which is good as he has two teenagers under his roof (one human, one of the German Shorthaired Pointer variety). If he could swap places with anyone for a day, it would be an astronaut which is fitting since his next item on his bucket list is to learn to fly.

Why is it so hard to find any good blogs on Microsoft and Azure? Most of the blogs we read weren't actually helpful, and it was obvious the writers didn't spend that much time actually educating their readers. Not to mention Microsoft and Azure licensing and details are so confusing, and are always changing! That's why our people write weekly blogs to answer the tough questions, and make it as easy as we can to break down the tough IT and security questions.
