About me

Hi! My name is Jan Bakker. Thank you for visiting my website. I started this website to post technical blogs about Microsoft 365, and other related subjects around “The modern workplace”. I am a Cloud Consultant, based in the Netherlands and have over 10 years of experience in IT. I started my career at the service desk, and quickly became a system administrator. Over the years I became a Cloud Consultant, working with Microsoft cloud products since the launch of Office 365. I worked with customers in different branches, from small business to the enterprise.


Articles on this website will mostly be related to Microsoft cloud products with a strong focus on Enterprise & Mobility, Identity, Windows 10 and the security products. Also, I’d like to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone to learn new things, so there may be posts about that as well.

Another few things

Content on this website may or may not be very new a the time of writing. Features may be in preview. Most of the content is created, just to get you started. Always think for yourself when you implement and/or change settings in your own environment. First, try in your demo/test environment, and even in production, you want to start out with just a small group of users or devices.

All content on this website is written by me personally and contains my personal opinion and insights. It is meant to make the best out of your Microsoft (cloud)products. That being said, there is no association with my current employer. All questions related to resources, billing and sales must be addressed to Rapid Circle directly.
