Power Platform Practice Lead, Solutions Architect, ZePowerDiver

Blainville, Canada

With more than 20 years of experience in IT and with a diverse path that led me to build new businesses from scratch as well as participate actively in the growth of other companies that I've joined... I've developed an awareness of what are the business key drivers that allow technology to be impactful.

Very agile and adaptive to rapid changes and involved in the community, I've gained great knowledge about the potential the Power Platform brings to different organizations.

Dynamics CE, Power Apps (Canvas and Model-Driven), Dataverse, Power Automate (flows), Power Pages, Microsoft Copilots, AI Builder... Yeah, I've worked on that ;-)

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and engaging in some outdoor sports by participating in deep-diving and rock/boulder climbing.

In many cases, those organizations look at integrated platforms such as Microsoft's Power Platform to help them address this transformation and face those challenges.

But even when they understand the full potential of this platform, the pricing structure, the differences between the multiple license types, the limitations, and allowances that they include, can be quite overwhelming.

In this session, you will learn more about what the different license models are for the Power Platform related tools, such as:
