Alexander Arvidsson
Principal Solutions Architect @ Atea

I’ve spent most of my career working in the dark depths of technology, both in specific fields such as databases but also between technologies where surprisingly few venture.

These days I’m completely focused on data (including Power BI, Azure and SQL Server). I work as a principal solutions architect for Atea in Linköping, Sweden, helping my customers take better care of their data. My role include presale and customer presentations, mentoring of colleagues, technical training and technical evangelism as well as design, architecture and implementation of data related projects.  I love training people and I love sharing any and all knowledge I’ve amassed, especially as a speaker at various events. Thanks to my contributions to the Microsoft community I was awarded Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Data Platform in 2018.


Simon Binder
Principal Technical Architect @ TrueSec

Simon Binder is a Microsoft Enterprise Mobility MVP –and Principal Technical Architect at TrueSec. In his role, Simon gets the opportunity to work both with workplace architecture as well as in technical sales regardless of technology – but with a strong Microsoft focus.

He likes to call himself a Technical Evangelist and he absolutely loves to be challenged and inspire colleagues, customers and the community in general. His goal is to empower every person to be both productive and happy at work – regardless of where it is at any particular moment.

Simon Binder holds several Microsoft certifications, works as a P-Seller with Microsoft and is proud to call himself MCT. He has always been a tech-guy, and always ensures to be up to date – with hands-on experience – and finds that it’s more important than ever to look outside the Microsoft-sphere, even if it feels scary sometimes.
