My name is Marco and I have an incredible passion for technology which I had the privilege to turn into a job. I’ve been working with .NET since the first beta, focusing on ASP.NET and, more generally, anything that is web related. I’ve been an early adopter of Microsoft Azure – who remembers the portal in Silverlight? :) – and, since its introduction, Cloud technologies have represented the core of my professional interest. Today I work as a freelance Solutions Architect in the beautiful London, focusing on Cloud transformation. Getting involved in the .NET and Azure community is also a key aspect of my profession: I’m convinced that knowledge sharing is one of the best ways to improve our professional skills, and therefore I try to dedicate as much time as I can to activities such as writing articles or speaking at conferences and meetups. Thanks to that, I’ve been awarded as a Microsoft MVP for the last 9 years in a row.

Following higher education in Electronics and I.T., stints as a college lecturer, a VSO in Nigeria and a computer application engineer at Taylor Woodrow, I originally joined Microsoft in 1993 in customer support for Excel. I went on to become a European Escalation Engineer for SQL Server. In 2000 I became a presenter at the MSDN roadshows that toured the country and then a pre-sales solution specialist selling SQL Server. In 2005 I had a stint as a SQL Server Evangelist presenting SQL Server as part of the TechNet evenings programme and blogging. In 2010 I left Microsoft to work in pre-sales for Qlik, selling their dashboard products QlikView and Qlik Sense. In 2016 I returned to Microsoft to join the Azure team, working with customers to realise their investment in Azure Data Services.

I am open minded about any technology that makes the lives of people easier and frees them to do what they do best! My focus is on building knowledge communities, efficient and effective information lifecycle management and the sustained adoption of the Office 365 suite of products. I operate as an IT Pro and believe in configuration over development. I’m currently the architect of an Office 365 ecosystem at a global engineering, management, and development consultancy. In my role I’m passionate about maximising the value gained from Office 365 by staff through adoption and continuous improvement. Whilst heavily immersed in the Microsoft stack I remain vendor agnostic. I’m happy to talk about a wide range of subjects including: * Why Yammer, Teams and SharePoint are better together * Using Flow with SharePoint to enhance content management and build solutions like Expense approvals * The ‘softer side’ of IT and how to progress as an ‘IT Pro’ and adapt your department or team to deal with the shift from traditional IT Building and sustaining adoption of Office 365

Tony Smith


Currently working as an Azure Data Solution Architect specialising in A.I & Advanced Analytics. Previously worked as Enterprise Architect for big data & analytics at HP Inc and Chief Architect for the Global BI team at HP. I've been in and around large scale data warehousing & analytics most of my career. My particular interest is in modern data warehousing, Lambda architectures, big data and how Azure supports those concepts. I've also recently started blogging again on those areas. However my background is technology agnostic and I tend to take an outside in, capability driven approach to Analytics architectures and focus on the technology once those frameworks are established. My experience in monolithic, slow EDWs has also made me passionate about agility and self service BI so I'm very interested in approaches which minimise time to market for BI solutions.

I've been working on more or less smart devices since the end of the previous millennium, when the term "IoT" was not even been imagined. I am a maker, I wrote a book (in Italian) about the Raspberry Pi and I love to play with any device that can run some kind of software. I've been working on many projects and know a few of the evil details that may prevent a good prototype from becoming a great product. I like to talk about IoT related topics and I'm very happy to give talks and discuss them with communities.
