New Work & Microsoft Career
NO DAY LIKE THE OTHER – ADJUSTING TO THE NEW WORK ENVIRONMENT
New Work, Modern Work, and Digital Work – you would have to try hard to find a topic that is more current with companies, as it is widely considered the starting point for improving competitiveness. Furthermore, there is hardly another topic that is linked as strongly to Microsoft solutions. With this background, IT consultants who are riding the new wave of New Work and Microsoft are facing interesting challenges – such as implementing processes or technologies such as Microsoft 365 & the Azure cosmos. Teams as a digital hub for productivity, Exchange, SharePoint, Yammer, PowerPlatform, or chat bots for increased productivity: there is a huge demand for tools that correspond with the changing mindset and varying demand. But our approach encompasses much more than merely tools: Project work, communication, collaboration, offices, file sharing – new work affects virtually everything. Enterprises are now facing the giant task of rebuilding the work environment to become more agile, interlinked, transparent, and virtual. And your challenge will be not only to keep pace with an ever-expanding Cloud universe, but rather being one step ahead.
Particularly the strong feeling of togetherness within the company and my team make me feel at home here.
HOW OUR MICROSOFT- & NEW WORK-EXPERTS ARE WORKING
Releasing agility and promoting cooperation and networking, improving productivity for everyone – that’s what our Microsoft & new work experts are about. Our own mindset and our team spirit supports this approach. Our projects are business projects and not merely technology projects. We are implementing new business approaches, and software is merely a part of that. We are thinking in terms of end-to-end processes that add value. For us, projects are holistic challenges with a focus on balancing a company’s human resources, culture, and technology – or more specifically: the users. It is quite common for us that we work in integrated expert teams including management consults, cyber security- and compliance experts as well as managed services. With this approach, we expand our horizon daily and thus drive our customer projects forward. We do not believe in silo thinking as we are convinced that only exchange can help realizing a flow of information and transparency. Our credo is: Don’t talk the talk – walk the walk. This is why we apply remote work the same way we advise our customers. We are working from everywhere based on the place where we can complete our tasks as efficiently as possible. With this, we contribute to the success of the team – and our customers.

THE BEST WAY TO BECOME A MICROSOFT & NEW WORK EXPERT
The most common way to becoming a Microsoft and New Work Expert is via a suitable university program with a background in economics and/or IT or comparable vocational training. However, a university degree is not the only option: Vocational training with a strong focus on IT is another way in, as well as hands-on experience and a corresponding mindset can be door openers into Microsoft consulting. Here, an agile approach, and a keen interest in new models for cooperation and new technologies are determining factors.
