Office Apps and Services

MVP AWARDS:

16 since 2008

Chris joined us in 2010 and is the Product and Services Director at Advania. Starting his career as a developer, in the early 2000s he began to specialise in content management and SharePoint and spent a decade as an independent consultant, including a spell with Microsoft.

As Products and Services Director, Chris oversees our core service lines including Modern Workplace, Azure, Cyber Security and Compliance, and Fresh – our digital workplace product.

IN HIS OWN WORDS:

The MVP award is recognition from Microsoft that your efforts meet a certain bar in terms of quality and impact, but the intrinsic motivation to help is generally a bigger factor. My content now extends across Microsoft 265 and Azure and I hope my writing continues to help others.

Anoop Tatti

MVP CATEGORY:

Office Development Services

MVP AWARDS:

2 since 2021

Anoop is a Development Architect at Advania and has been with us for more than five years. In November 2021, Anoop was awarded MVP status for the first time.

Starting out as a SharePoint developer in his home country of India, in 2011 Anoop moved to Scotland to pursue a course in management. He has been working in Microsoft consultancy ever since, focusing on SharePoint projects with responsibilities ranging from requirements gathering to delivery.

IN HIS OWN WORDS:

Being an MVP means a lot to me. I understand the importance of learning, helping and sharing within the Microsoft community. Although I’ve only recently achieved MVP status, I’ve had the opportunity to interact with other MVPs and attend product group calls. If I’m facing any issues or need help, I can reach out to the community and get the solution I need. The community is always there to help its members, hence the motto ‘sharing is caring’.

MVP AWARDS:

Steve is Advania’s Field Chief Technology Officer and has been with us for more than eight years. With previous experience in both the private and public sectors, for the last ten years Steve has worked in the Microsoft Partner ecosystem as a consultant and practice lead. He also helped a large organisation to become one of the first adopters of Office 365, the forerunner to Microsoft 365.

IN HIS OWN WORDS:

If you’re passionate about technology and you enjoy sharing what you know with others, you genuinely want to help people avoid the problems you’ve encountered. Over time, someone might nominate you for the Microsoft MVP. It doesn’t mean you’re better than anyone else, it means you’re sharing what you know, often – with high enough quality to be recognised by Microsoft.
