My name is Simon Skotheimsvik, and this is the blog where I document and share ideas as a Microsoft 365 specialist and Senior Cloud Consultant at CloudWay.
I have broad experience and passion for Microsoft technology from a career starting in the late 1990s. Initially as in-house IT support, but moved to consulting in the mid-2000s covering all aspects from delivering cutting-edge expertise to being the go-to-guy giving advices and speeches on tech and interfacing people and processes.
I have long experience in new technology!– Simon
Endpoint management has always been part of the repertoire with roots back to Windows NT, Active Directory, and recently with a heavy focus on the cloud-based solutions from Microsoft covering Microsoft 365, Azure AD, identities, security, endpoint management, Intune, applications, and solutions found in the Office portfolio, and such. I have the recent years been deeply involved in migrating customers to the Microsoft Cloud with a focus on automating tasks.
My technological repertoire has also had large elements of unified communication. Starting with voice-enabled Office Communication Server, I have a proven history of bridging the gaps from traditional PBXs by using Microsoft UC technology all the way up to the cloud-based Teams.
Deep technical knowledge, versatile background, good documentation, technical flair, keen interest and ability to improvise are good ingredients I bring to the projects where I am involved.
I have always loved to work out loud, sharing my expertise with colleagues and customers through text and videos.
I am highly certified within Microsoft 365, Intune, EMS, Azure, Teams, Cyber Security and more.
The title of my blog “Simon does…” is a wordplay spinning out of the traditional children’s game named “Simon says…” combined with the fact that I am a doer as well as a speaker. I love making sure things are done correctly and accurately, and I love sharing knowledge about what I do through my blog and speaking.
Well done is better than well said– Benjamin Franklin
I love to learn new stuff, and I tend to learn it best while doing things. I guess in my case, #neverstoplearning could translate to #neverstopdoing.
