My name is André Lage, I am Portuguese but living in Basel,
I am Solution Manager of Swiss company call Processlynx with 25
persons over my management from different countries and languages > 8, with creation
of Solutions (SharePoint, Office 365, Web Base Solutions and Mobile). I have
multiple SharePoint certifications and when the opportunity is provided and
time I like to share my knowledge of this platform in my blog or
SharePoint/Office 365 public events.
I am SharePoint MVP since 2010 and this give me opportunity to meet
and talk with some many people around the world and new friends with different
views, Business approaches and capabilities.
I also love to support the Office 365 team with the transition from Full
trust code to Office 365 Apps creating samples in the office 365 practices and
SharePoint was the product on fire in 2006 and
2007 was the turning point to became the intranet Product, was crazy times and
start to deeply search everything about the product and their features and
every time more amaze what we could do, was a fully integrated solution with
Microsoft Products and other platforms and saw the growth to the Cloud (Azure
Platform and Office 365) with even more capabilities in 10 years it’s is just
incredible a total revolution and transition on how we deal with IT.
¿Por qué y cómo empezaste en el mundo de la tecnología?
Spectrum was definitely the turning point, I remember exploring a Spectrum magazine with some basic command and I created a circle with a line in the middle and planet Saturn was born in my TV screen, I automatically saw the potential in my hands.
After this event computers and IT continues to be part of my life and explorer with my father other commercial applications like Lotus 123 and making my first network connection with an Olivetti in the beginnings of 90's for stock management.
Constant investment in Business solution provide me the ability to have dipper knowledge of different business where my family was involve and provide me a lot of real world Human Behavior, you can have the best tool in the world but will not work by himself "yet".
