Join me in the Microsoft IT Journey into the Past 2015...

Today I am writing this final blog post for the year 2015, Few more hours left to step in to the New Year 2016. My advanced New Year Wishes to you all in first place. I started blogging from the year 2013 and crossed 3 successful New years on this blogging journey, Its always good to look back and see how things were, how things are now and what's coming in the mere future and get prepared for a fresh start.

This year 2015 was a great year for me, starting from the day one, I was recognized by Microsoft for my Community contributions and honored with the prestigious Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award for my expertise Office 365 and now a Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services after the new Award restructuring, which further expanded my expertise including my Technical Interests. I felt blissful to get listed among one of the Top Technical Experts in the Global Community. Being a Microsoft MVP is not just an honor its a boon for me to do more to the community and help others to know more about current Technology happenings in the world of Microsoft and beyond in a more sophisticated way in this agile World, where you can see changes occur by every second at a rapid rate.

This year is quite special for Microsoft, where we had more innovations and announcements than ever before inline with their Mobile First, Cloud First Strategy.

Microsoft Ignite, Convergence, Build, WPC, Azure Conference, Global Azure Bootcamp, Cloud Roadshows, Connect() and various other Conferences and events were filled in this year.
