Microsoft MVP Award 2018-2019


With great pride and enormous satisfaction I have the pleasure to announce that even this year I received the MVP Award!

One of the features of the MVP Award is that there is nothing obvious, in the sense that, unlike the various certifications, for which it is necessary to study and pass an exam, the MVP Award is subject to the judgment of the various Microsoft teams that evaluate the contributions produced for the community and establish who is truly worthy to receive the award.

Never like this year I was anxious regarding the arrival of the confirmation email because it was well known that the criteria for evaluations had become much more restrictive.

This is confirmed by the numbers, after the annual appointment of July 1, the total number of MVPs has dropped drastically by about 25%.

A news for this year concerning the MVP program is that some categories have been consolidated such as mine, until the previous appointment my category was Office Server & Services and included Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, Sharepoint and Office 365, now the category is called Office Apps & Services and includes the following products:

Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Skype for Business, Yammer, Microsoft Teams, Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, Word, OneDrive, Project, Microsoft Stream.

Thanks Microsoft and thanks to the community for which I will continue to contribute with great enthusiasm!
