My name is Thomas Stensitzki and I work in IT since the good ole' days of Windows NT 3.51. My overall career in IT started in school with Pascal on CP/M. After programming in Basic on C64 and in Amiga Basic on Amiga 1000 I moved to "the real" stuff and partnered with friends to start a regional internet provider company, HKN, in Duisburg.

Since May 2014 I am the owner and principal of Granikos GmbH & Co. KG which provides enterprise consulting services for Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Azure and Cloud Security.


After starting as a software programmer for .NET (classic ASP.NET, SharePoint and even Dynamics CRM) I switched to the infrastructure side of things and focussed on SharePoint and Exchange. After some time I had to make a decision to either take the red pill or the blue pill. Exchange Server won (guess the color of the pill) and I made my way up to Microsoft Certified Master for Exchange Server 2010.


I do hold various Microsoft certifications which support my knowledge of the Microsoft enterprise technology stack and help me to provide a reliable consulting service. In addition I help implementing the Enow Management Suite since 2010. The solution helps you to monitor and report on your Exchange, Exchange Online, SharePoint, Skype for Business (aka Lync) and Active Directory environments.
