Petri Paavola

Finland

Biography

Petri has over 18 years work experience with Microsoft domain environments. His main specialty is workstation and server deployment, Powershell, automation and management in domain environments.

In past he was the owner of workstation service in Finland's biggest technical university (Aalto University) covering 8,500 Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X computers. This position required technical and non-technical skills to manage domain environment and people administering it.

Petri combines both of these views in his own company Yodamiitti Oy and in his presentations and trainings to find and give reasons how and why we should do what we are doing in our everyday work.

There are thousands of computers in hundreds of schools in Finland using cloud managed Windows 10 which are installed with Petri's own custom "Windows 10 cloud-install-solution" known as Asennustikku. Petri is transferring all his traditional technical knowledge to new Cloud Managed Windows 10 environments.

Petri has been a Microsoft Windows Most Valuable Professional (Windows and Devices for IT) for over 7 years. He is a frequently seen speaker in conferences in Finland and now covering also more rest of the world.
