[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: to sit in the

[mark]: oh

[venkata]: in a big conference room like fifteen to twenty members so you can observe you can think fifteen to twenty projects are working beside me so like

[mark]: wow

[venkata]: that i got to know i was okay this is the area which i can definitely

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: invest on it so that so all

[mark]: oh

[venkata]: discussions all problems resolution so it gave me an interest grow

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: on to it and also

[mark]: oh

[venkata]: most of the things like the framework has been built on the top of dont only so which is not which i was very much comfortable if you observe the pleggains custom crodactivities all these things has been built and on the dotneteframework and we use the dotnatrelated libraries to use to work on them that's ow

[mark]: so it's been about five years since i've heard out in a customer you know c c f what's what's the current iteration

[venkata]: oh

[mark]: and microstopland of what was c c c f is it still being carried

[venkata]: no

[mark]: so so was unified service desk the last

[venkata]: ah

[mark]: thing

[venkata]: yes fed service disk and now just the improvised version of the customer service work space is going on right so like many channel all these things has been mostly but there are few

[mark]: that

[venkata]: more few customers till they use the univerd

[mark]: oh yeah

[venkata]: service s especially

[mark]: oh yeah

[venkata]: h p like customer so

[mark]: hm yeah i definitely know of customers that are still using it because you know it's been it works and it's it's still in existence but you know if we look at the modern digital contact center there's much or a requirement now for it to be right cloud so it's a cloud contact center and and us d was never never a cloud type delivery solution writer is very much desk top neither

[venkata]: correct

[mark]: that des top component

[venkata]: got it

[mark]: thick line very interesting it's so good to talk with somebody that has that experience back there so fast fast forward me to where where are you in your your you know what the key part of microsop business applications and like when you started back then there was only a few products right there was not a lot under the dynamics banner and it was now there's a lot of products what area do you mainly focus in these days

[venkata]: okay so when i started working on the business application it was arm two and sixteen on land version after that so jest i worked on the date sitifyendupgrade jucfusaly up grade and all so mostly now my focus in other areas which i concentrate on more on the service models and the sales model and

[mark]: yes

[venkata]: obviously now it is a a kind of flavor that it has and other than that one i work with the power platform a er intigration and canvas order ran abs these all the things that will be revolving around me

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: no

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: i do

[mark]: that's so good and so obviously you know you've become an m v p how did that happen for you what was the nomination process what happened to get you to alter he end up becoming an n v p

[venkata]: what right so i started um making writing the blocks so initially i started by answering the queries in the community first thing what i did right just right registering into the community and observing okay what are the things can i answer a few queries and later just i heard from my many of my babs friends like the base so many who en did who was one of the one of the person who motivated me for just to establish my name so everybody has to identify by your name so that's kind of value that you should get it so how you will get it just by contributing to the community and then just spread whatever the knowledge that you have so like that just i started blogginguh it was actually almost one year now so i could ride close to one hundred and fifteen blocks on

[mark]: wow

[venkata]: various things like back to basics it was around the forty ninth topic that i have written and in a power automate i have written sixty nine so like that so i have a

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: couple of series that are going on like back to back series back to basic series and our automat fundamentals so initial thing is

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: if you open my blog you will know how to start any person who don't have any knowledge just they blindly follow it and they can learn it this

[mark]: I love it

[venkata]: is how i make it as a familiar and coming back to them i'm baby journey so i used to walk i used to write in the same way i used to but i used to be a speaker in member of events so in that particular events like in one of the aria event

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: that was run

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: by the disa user group by golacnotalso another cosespeaker like yeah go joseph so we both are delivering the sessions so after that particular session nijo and myself can connected and he thought like i would

[mark]: may

[venkata]: be the best person to get nominated for b b because of looking at my contribution and all so he nominated me along but as so it went so

[mark]: i like

[venkata]: major

[mark]: it

[venkata]: joseph is also in a p

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: from maltarasian

[mark]: yeah yeah this is so good tell me if there was one feature that you could have added into power automat what would it be what one thing do you think you would want to add

[venkata]: m right so co presence that needs to be improvised more so that if it all two members are working on it in case if i wanted to quickly revert back to the previous version without directly going into the gut ben doing it so that would that was the one of the feature that i am expecting because many of the people came up came back to me and asked like how i can use this kind of thing just like in canvas abs i have the tree do undo feature and like here in borautomate also we are facing this thing is there the co presence is there other than just commenting can we also record the changes of the other person who has done that so that was one of the most sevated features from my side so that it will help really

[mark]: i like it i like it it's good you know i

[venkata]: yes

[mark]: finally have a list of things that i would like on my wish list as as well in becoming an n v p did

[venkata]: oh

[mark]: what

[venkata]: ah

[mark]: did you discover that you didn't know before being an m v p what was

[venkata]: yeah

[mark]: what surprised you once you were in the program

[venkata]: actually i was not surprised because i watched your vid on two thousand nineteen outubeooutube video like how to be we ended some benefits so

[mark]: nice

[venkata]: there i got the good exposure of what it will be there in the navy but what is that what the opportunity that i got

[mark]: oh

[venkata]: it right so to enter with the product groups and also to attend for the m v b summit to us to know and got astonished by looking at m okay what are the things that are coming but as well i cannot share it because of the n d so

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: the time waiting for it okay when it will come

[mark]: yes

[venkata]: so that i can

[mark]: yeah

[venkata]: officially them

[mark]: nice

[venkata]: along with my implementation in the projects

[mark]: nice just before this i was doing a podcast with somebody from microsoft and i said you know we've just had m v p summit and i've confused in my mind about what we can talk about what

[venkata]: uh

[mark]: so i'm gonna open a question i said i won't reveal anything but you need to tell me whether we could talk about this and i opened the question

[venkata]: yeah

[mark]: he was like no i can't see anything at this time and i'm like good we're clear because we find out so much stuff right at the m v p summit is amazing

[venkata]: yeah

[mark]: what recommendations do you have for other people that want that think that you know an m v p might be something that they would love to get what recommendations do you have for them

[venkata]: m so first thing i would say that to anyone p h if you get an m p title right it is a responsibility don't think it is an okay just like other certification and the first common thing and may be by looking at most of the people says that okay how can i get the certification so as it will some time for me to explain them what is this and so for any person to start coming into the nvbrote you start contributing okay you start contributing through the community and spread whatever the things that you are aware of it so that it will reach to the of people who are waiting for all these things so that was the first thing resisting into the community and attend any kind of other metus if you have any

[mark]: oh

[venkata]: issues of knowing which mat ups are happening i am maintaining a special page in my blog which will give you on to date what are all the matups that are present so they can easily go and join it this is all i used to and i used to guide the people and i am doing now as well
