47 Ronins … actually 2 MVPs … again

Ronin …

… was a samurai with no lord or master during the feudal period (1185–1868) of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the death or fall of his master, or after the loss of his master’s favor or privilege.

Actually there ar 47 Ronin right now entering cinema … to be honest I have not seen this movie yet so I don’t know if it is any good.

Ronin was a lonely samurai without a master, at least in movies often depict as good man fighting for a cause and doing good … often not understood by its society.


Most Valuable Professional, MVP is exceptional award which Microsoft awards some individuals who commit their time to master their skills (like samurai) and  share it in one way or another with community. One more similarity to ronins (if any) is that MVPs are doing a lot of good job for community in which they work and often are well recognized for that.

At Predica we don’t have any ronins – few good people has left us but we think about them still as members of our team (a bit extended) and we are not thinking about ourselves as masters (except our areas of expertise).

At Predica we are proud to have as members of our team two individuals and experts, who besides of supporting our customers and our team as part of their daily duties are committing their time and expertise to support and share with communities. And for that, in January 2014 Microsoft has awarded two of our experts with  Most Valuable Professional, MVP award.


Dariusz Porowski … who is our cloud infrastructure architect and house expert for all kind of and management solution, was proudly awarded for 4’th year in a row with MVP award in Hyper-V area.

Tomek Onyszko, who constantly evangelizes customers and Predica team and about importance of identity in our modern ward was awarded for 3’rd time with MVP awarded in Enterprise Security area (which is his 6’th award – in the past, before joining Microsfot ranks, he used to be  MVP for Directory Services).

Congrats to both of them and keep doing good work!!!

Great start into 2014 for our Predica team, and even if we can’t get MVP award as a team in general we will still keep working hard and contribute to community where it is possible. Here on the blog, on Technet Forums and other places … look out for us and stay tuned here on the blog.
