Quick video refresher on new Microsoft competencies

OK, so probably many of you have made your arrangement to fly to Washington, D.C., for the annual Microsoft worldwide partner conference. Last year, the company announced a whole set of new competencies, which means that most of you have had to rejigger your certifications with the software developer.

For those of you who need a little refresher on what’s required, there is a new video on the Microsoft Partner Network Web site. The content features Julie Bennani, general manager of the Microsoft Partner Network, and Pam Salzer, senior director of worldwide partner marketing at Microsoft, discussing what has (and IS) changing. It’s about 15 minutes long, but worth the investment.

Also, between now and the end of the month you have an opportunity to re-do any exam you might have failed. (Yes, a second chance!) Here’s the link for more information.

You are kidding, we changed from IOS to Android because of the liitations IOS offered in locking down the devices. in the real IT world Android is the way to go, with a good MDM solution.
There are more vendors and solutions to choose from on Android, also when it comes to security and e.g. VPN solutions supported. Android is better suited for the enterprises while iOS is better for consumers with regard to e.g. using the phone as a camera or music player.
