About

About the author

My name is +Ronni Pedersen and I’m from Denmark.

I have been working as an IT Professional since 1997 and working with Microsoft technologies ever since. I’m currently a Senior Infrastructure Architect working at a consulting firm located in Denmark. My primary focus is to design and deploy Infrastructure and  Enterprise Client Management solutions, based on technologies like System Center, Microsoft Intune, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), Microsoft Azure and Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS).

 

Community Activities

I’m trying to share as much IT knowledge as possible within my spare time. This sharing is mainly done on the largest Danish IT Pro website: IT Experts, http://www.it.experts.dk, where I’m one of the top posters.

Forums, pages and communities where I am active:

User Groups

I’m selected as part of the Microsoft Partner Experts Team (PET) in Denmark. The focus of this Team is deployment of Windows Clients and Microsoft Office at Enterprise and Upper mid-marked Customers. The goal of this User Group is to share information with other team members regarding deployment and configuration of Windows clients and Microsoft Office.

As a valued member of the Microsoft TechNet Influent Team in Denmark, I spreads the word (and my knowledge) of Microsoft products and technologies to different Danish and International IT communities. The Microsoft Influent Network in Denmark is for the most visionary and sharing IT professionals in Denmark. My role in this team is to work close with Microsoft Denmark and other team members on creating a great community where IT Pro’s can connect and get help or advices with Microsoft related technologies.
As a member of the Microsoft Influent Network and a valued member on IT Experts I have worked hard (with other members) to make IT Expert the leading community in Denmark where IT Pro’s exchange their experiences.
