What does a solution architect do with Mike Martin

Episode #33 Published Wednesday, February 3, 2021

This week on the #podcast, I talk with Mike Martin about what a #solution #architect does. We go into #software- and solution architecture, company politics, @Azure, #cloud-native design, #cost-driven architecture, moving to the #cloud and a lot more.

I have been using Windows 10 for years now and I recently took the time to learn how to be more productive with it. There are lots of shortcuts and tools in Windows 10 that help me throughout the day. DO you also want to be more productive with Windows 10? Then check out my new Udemy course called Windows 10 Productivity Booster.


As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect / Technical Evangelist, Mike is an Azure goto for ISV’s (independent software vendors) and Partners. He’s been active in the IT industry for more than 20 years and has performed almost all types of job profiles, going from coaching and leading a team to architecting and systems design and training. Today he’s primarily into the Microsoft Cloud Platform and Application Lifecycle Management. He’s not a stranger to both dev and IT Pro topics, they even call him the perfect hybrid solution. 


In January 2012 he became a crew member of AZUG, the Belgian Microsoft Azure User Group. As an active member he’s both involved in giving presentations and organizing events (like ITProceed, Techorama and Global Azure Bootcamp aka GAB). Mike was also a Microsoft Azure MVP (awarded 5 times since 2013, received his Fifth in July 2017! ) and Microsoft Azure Advisor. 


Helping out in the community and introducing new & young people into the world of Microsoft and technology is also one of his passions.
