So the time has come, I’ve FINALLY launched my own blog again.
I’ve had this domain and blog for several years and it has transformed over the years. Now, it will take the form of a modern workplace blog where I will share my learnings, findings, and hands-on tips on how to solve things!
My idea is to do this my own way and adding a personal touch to it.
So who am I?
You can find this under the About section as well.
I usually describe myself as a millennial since I’m born in that period and I identify a lot with the definition (and I do prefer avocado toast over diamonds).
I’ve worked within IT since 2011 and I’ve always worked with device management in some way or another. It all started back in 2011 when I worked with mobile device management at Sandvik IT Services. In 2013, I joined Microsoft’s MACH program as a consultant within devices, further developing and expanding my knowledge to also the Windows platform and more traditional management.
In 2017, I joined Sandvik IT Services once again, this times as a Service Manager over the client platform. In mid 2019 I switched role to become a Solution Architect in the modern workplace area. During this time, I helped drive the internal digital transformation with switching to modern productivity tools. I was also was involved in several big projects with the goal to modernize IT.
Since late 2019 I work as a Technical Specialist within devices at Advania, within the specialist unit Knowledge Factory.
I realised early on that to catch up with my senior colleges, it was a clever idea to focus Microsoft Intune since it was a new product in the Microsoft echo system where I could dive in and evolve faster. With that said, I do have knowledge of traditional management. I choose to view it as I understand what you have you in your legacy backpack to apply modern methods and helping you on your modernization journey.
My work life drive is quite simple (and you might find where the inspiration come from): I believe that everyone should be able to be as productive as possible with the tools they prefer in an uncomplicated way.
With that said, welcome to my new blog: Ola Ström – My modern workplace.
