KANSAS CITY, Mo. – At INNOVA Consulting Group, experience runs deep. Last month, the company celebrated their third Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award, which recognizes an individual’s exceptional contributions to the technology community.
INNOVA CTO and Partner Sandeep Khandelwal is proud of the value INNOVA is able to offer to its customers because of its exceptionally accomplished team, noting they are the only organization in Kansas City to have three MVPs and a Microsoft Certified Master (MCM).
“Our team is not a team of Google architects,” Khandelwal said, adding that INNOVA has the leading-edge prowess to solve problems based on their insight and expertise—and without the aid of search engines.
“We acquire and retain the highest caliber of resources to serve our customers and their needs.”
MVP’s are technology experts who passionately share their deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services with the community. Most recently, Parvinder Chana joined the ranks of Vijai Kumar and Joydip Kanjilal at INNOVA, and more than 4,000 others worldwide, who were granted the MVP award for specific specialty topics.
Chana was granted his MVP award in business analytics tool Power BI, Kumar earned his MVP in collaboration & content platform SharePoint, and Kanjilal—who’s authored books on custom coding and developers—received his in open-source server-side web application framework asp.net.
But the talent doesn’t end there. Khandelwal earned the designation of MCM in 2012, making him one of about 70 worldwide before Microsoft retired the exam in 2014. MCM’s have the “deepest level of technical expertise” and are able to “design and build the most innovative solutions for complex, on-premises and hybrid enterprise environments” according to Microsoft. Khandelwal advanced his skills to becoming a Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA), making him one of the highest-achieving professionals in the industry.
