New BizTalk Competency Exam Debuts

Exam released at private sales partner summit in Seattle.

Microsoft released another "partner competency" exam this week: Exam 74-135, Developing E-Business Solutions Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, was released Monday, January 17, but the exam made its formal debut Tuesday at Microsoft's Envision Conference, a summit of the company's sales and channel partners, which is taking place this week in Seattle.

According to information published on the guides for similar exams released late last year, partner competency exams "validate that individuals in a partner environment are efficient and capable of deploying multifaceted IT solutions to their customer with skills across multiple Microsoft products and technologies." These exams also do not qualify test takers as Microsoft Certified Professionals.

To find out more about the new partner competency exams, see the earlier news report, "New Exams Target Competencies," at http://mcpmag.com/news/article.asp?editorialsid=755.

(As this report was being posted, the exam objective guide did not appear on the Microsoft Learning site; a link to it will be provided when it goes live on that site.)
