Cloud Architect, MCSE, MCT

Koenraad Haedens has +20 years of deep-technical IT client, server and datacenter experience. Having started on mainframe and UNix systems at the Belgian Military, he decided to start his own business a few years later, providing hosting and managed services to small and midsize businesses in Belgium. Owning their own datacenters helped in mastering VMware, SAN, complex firewalling, Hyper-V, private cloud environments, as well as embracing (Microsoft) cloud solutions as an early adopter. Earlier this year, Koenraad left ServCat to completely focus on Azure, Office 365 and EMS, by balancing technical project delivery with providing architect readiness workshops all over Europe. Today Koenraad is working as Azure Technical Trainer at Microsoft. Koenraad holds several industry certifications, but is most proud on his Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT 2006-2021) credentials for so many years. Presenting at industry conferences and local user group events has become a true passion, allowing him to share his enthusiasm as a speaker, but still being technical-savvy as well.
