(Stephen Parker, Head of Cloud Strategy)
To be able to sell Microsoft’s Online Services offerings e.g. BPOS you need to sign up as a MS Online Partner. Part of this process is taking an assessment that “tests” your knowledge of BPOS. Until recently this consisted of 11 questions that were not particularly well written (ambiguity in possible responses), but provided you read the “training guide” in advance it was easy to reach the required 75% pass rate.
Microsoft have finally updated the questions to better reflect the BPOS world, remove the ambiguity and extend to cover Windows InTune. Again as long as you read the training guide passing the assessment should not be tricky – WITH ONE EXCEPTION. The training guide has not been updated (at the time of writing) to include information about InTune. If you need additional information on InTune then you might find the following useful:
