ABOUT Andreas Wolter

Since 2013, together with a colleague from Finland, I have been one of 2 Microsoft Certified Solutions Master Data Platform (MCSM)* in Europe! (There are 7 worldwide.) This is the highest certification on the Data Platform Track granted by Microsoft after a complex practical exam for only a short period of time.

I had the honor to be the first to present in public many new techniques such as Extended Events and In-Memory functionalities of SQL Server in Germany. Since 2014, I have been awarded the MVP Award 4 times already for my commitment to the SQL Server Community of Microsoft. (Read more in this blog article)

I look forward to applying and sharing my know-how to your benefit. Contact me.

Since November 2018 I am working for the Redmond-based Microsoft SQL Server Security Team.

Founder of Sarpedon Quality Lab®

In the area of training, I have developed the SQL Server Master-Classes: practical trainings, going beyond MOC level, for the requirements of the real IT world.

* The MCSM is not comparable to the “Charter Member”-version which basically was a free addition for SQL Server 2008 Masters (MCM) (which I had also previously attained) given as a “goodbye present.” (Read more in this blog article).

** From time to time I hear about people who intend to make an impression with the title “Microsoft Certified Solutions Master Data Platform (MCSM) CHARTER MEMBER” while speculating that only few people know of the background to this title addition, and I distance myself completely from such whitewashing.
