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:

  • 70-121, Designing and Providing Microsoft Volume License Solutions to Small and Medium Organizations
  • 70-122, Designing and Providing Microsoft Volume License Solutions to Large Organizations
  • 70-123, Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Software Asset Management (SAM) Program

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 designation.
