We announced today that AvePoint Technical Solutions Professional Fabrice Di Giulio was named a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Through its MVP awards each year, Microsoft recognizes exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products. Following this honor for his great work, Di Giulo joins our existing two Microsoft SharePoint MVPs on staff – AvePoint Public Sector Chief Technology Officer Dux Raymond Sy and AvePoint Client Services Strategic Consultant Paul Olenick.

As we kick off a new year, AvePoint’s three MVPs will continue to use their expansive knowledge of Microsoft products to provide the highest level of guidance and expertise to our customers while helping steer our solutions toward the future of enterprise of collaboration. With this series, we’re putting a spotlight on AvePoint’s Microsoft MVPs. We sat down with Di Giulio, Olenick, and Sy to get their perspectives on what being an MVP is all about to them and what it means to the greater Microsoft technology community.

What does it mean to you to be a Microsoft MVP?

Fabrice Di Giulio: It’s a recognition of the work I’m doing to share my knowledge about the Dynamics CRM technology. It’s not a matter of skill level, but about engagement. Moving forward, it’s also a boost that will enable me to do much more for the Microsoft community than I already did in the past.

What do you like best about being an MVP?

FDG: My peers’ recognition. After just one week, I’m amazed by the social media response resulting from making the announcement on LinkedIn. I’ve been congratulated by other MVPs, of course, but also contacted by an editor to write a book about Dynamics CRM. At this stage, I really like the wide range of possibilities and the social impact of the status.

How does your status as an MVP factor into the work you do at AvePoint?

FDG: As a Dynamics CRM MVP, I’m expecting this to help with the development of our Dynamics CRM-related activities.

What is one suggestion you have for anyone looking to become an MVP in the future?

FDG: I would say to share your knowledge, help others, and be visible.

What are you looking forward to most from Microsoft in 2015?

FDG: Ah, good question! I have strong expectations for what’s coming for both Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online. Yes, that’s a “light” answer, but I cannot tell all that I know just yet!
