A TECHNOLOGY expert from the North East has been selected to speak at national level on behalf of global giant Microsoft.
Justin Short, MD of SharePoint at Technology Services Group (TSG), is representing one of only four companies in Microsoft’s UK roadshow
He joined the software firm in July last year when his company, Rocket Solutions, was acquired by the Gosforth-based group.
Since then, his work in developing SharePoint, one of the fastest growth technologies in the UK, has won him and TSG further recognition by Microsoft.
As one of a select line-up of speakers, Justin will present a session on how Nintex Workflow software can help to build smart business process automation solutions at the SharePoint ISV Roadshow at venues across the UK. His selection follows TSG joining only 1% of Microsoft’s 650,000 partners worldwide to achieve top-level gold competencies in several areas under new standards set by the global software company.
Short said: “The invitation to be involved in these events is a brilliant endorsement of where TSG stands in the UK SharePoint world, and is a wonderful recognition of our growing expertise in this technology.”
He added: “These events will provide us with an excellent platform to promote TSG’s skills and credentials to UK businesses, which is great news for our people and the North East region, as well as our other offices around the country.”
Microsoft SharePoint enables companies to link up all their people and technology to share information.
It is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to integrate with existing software, extensive reporting and business intelligence capabilities and its flexibility to be tailored to individual business needs.
The roadshow has opened in Edinburgh and will travel on to Warrington, Reading and London.
