Exams Under the Radar: Licensing Solutions
More competency exams available for Microsoft software licensing experts.
Unbeknownst to MCPmag
.com until recently, Microsoft in December
released a trio of exams that target Microsoft Certified Partners engaged
in coming up with appropriate licensing solutions for Microsoft technology
deployments at small companies up to large enterprises:
Designing and Providing Microsoft Volume License Solutions to Small
and Medium Organizations
Designing and Providing Microsoft Volume License Solutions to Large
Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Software Asset Management
According to the exam objective guides, the exams were released simultaneously
on Dec. 10. The exams have no formal study materials, but do point
to licensing resources on the Microsoft site.
Each exam falls under the Licensing Solutions partner competency. Like
many of the exams that are used for measuring partner competency, none
of these ones will earn those who pass them a Microsoft Certified Professional
