Hi there! I am Vesa “Vesku” Nopanen, a Principal Consultant for Metaverse and Future Work!

In this blog I share thoughts about the Metaverse, especially on Microsoft’s Metaverse. That means I also write about Microsoft Cloud solutions, platform and products – including Microsoft Teams. It is good to keep in mind that Microsoft Teams is the User Interface for Work – and to the Metaverse. When thinking about the business and work we need to keep business processes and integrations in the mind – so there is room for articles about Microsoft Teams, Power Platform and Office 365.

In my early career years (pre-2k – early 2k) I was a software developer and then moved to work with SQL databases for many years as developer, DBA and lead. Later I picked up some skills in Business Intelligence, Project Management, Team Lead, Office 365, SharePoint, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Cloud, Microsoft Teams and so on.. This all made me the Principal Consultant in Metaverse and Future Work.

I am also proud to say that my employer is Sulava – a born in a cloud company and a magnificent place to work at and to look to the future with.
