About Rich Dean

Greetings! I'm Rich, a long-time professional specializing in Microsoft cloud and hybrid technologies. As the Senior Manager of Technical Product Management at Quest Software, I wear many hats - I'm a certified Microsoft professional, an engaging speaker (hopefully), an insightful blogger (aspire to be), a dedicated podcaster (depends on my mood), and a fervent technology evangelist.

My journey in the tech industry has been both diverse and enriching, allowing me to hone a broad spectrum of skills. My passion lies in the realms of security, management, and migration, areas where I strive to make a difference.

Sharing knowledge is something I deeply enjoy. Through my podcast, Practical 365, as co-host we delve into various Microsoft topics and engage in enlightening discussions with experts in the field. I also take pleasure in penning educational blog posts, aiming to illuminate complex concepts for others.

Recently, I had the honor of co-hosting and presenting at The Experts Conference (TEC) 2023 in Atlanta, GA. My presentation centered around multi-tenant management solutions for Microsoft 365, a topic close to my heart. My interests extend to cyber security, artificial intelligence, and international politics, and I actively engage with content related to these areas.

I warmly invite you to join me on this exciting journey as we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of Microsoft technology together. Welcome aboard!
