Bob Cornelissen

I am a managing consultant and founder at TopQore specializing in System Center products, and especially SCOM. Of course my interests in other Microsoft Server products is profound as well and I also still deploy those – Windows Server, Exchange, Hyper-V, AD and System Center and Security solutions and of course the Azure Cloud to name some great products.
As you might have found, most of my current career focuses on SCOM. I just love this product. One of the reasons is because it is versatile and because it touches all components of the infrastructure. This way I get to implement SCOM and get into monitoring not only diverse Microsoft workloads, but also network, storage, cross platform, custom applications and much more. And I get to work with people from first line help-desk staff to senior sys admins to management and also from all different expertise. This gives the opportunity to help everybody get the most out of the product and very often to help in fixing problems that SCOM is seeing.

In 2012 I have received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for System Center Cloud and Datacenter Management and continue to have earned it until today.
