Most Asked FAQ’s
Q. Is there a recertification policy for the MCITP credential?
A. We no longer require a "refresh" or recertification of the MCITP credential
within three years. To better meet our customers’ needs, we now retire a
certification when mainstream support for the related technology phases out. If
you earned an MCITP certification before the policy change, no action is
required—the updated policy applies to your certification, which will remain
valid until mainstream support for the related technology ends.

Q. Does MCSA equate to MCITP: Server Administrator and does MCSE equate to
MCITP: Enterprise Administrator?

A. No, not exactly. The MCITP on Windows Server 2008 certification requires a
new skill set—in some cases, a more robust one—that differs from the skill set
needed for MCSA and MCSE certifications.

* MCITP: Server Administrator certification covers more operations-related job
skills than the MCSA certification.
* MCITP: Enterprise Administrator maps to an actual job role profile, whereas
the MCSE certification does not. The latter combines technology and job skills.

Q. Are the MCTS and MCITP certifications replacing the MCSA and MCSE
credentials?

A. No. The MCSA and MCSE certifications are not being replaced. There is no
change to the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 tracks and
certifications. The MCTS and MCITP certifications are for Windows Server 2008.

Q. Am I a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) if I earn an MCITP
certification?

A. Yes and no. The term MCP is used both as a general term for all Microsoft
Certified Professionals and as the name of a credential. As an MCITP, you become
part of the Microsoft Certified Professional community, with access to all
related benefits, information, and activities. You do not earn a credential
titled "MCP". You should use the MCITP credential on your resume and in business
collateral, which indicates your specialty and shows that you are a member of
the MCP community.

Q. How long will my certification be valid?
A. All next-generation certifications, including Microsoft Certified Technology
Specialist (MCTS), MCITP, and Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD),
will retire when Microsoft discontinues mainstream support for the related
technology. After a credential retires, it will still appear on your transcript
but will be listed as retired. In most cases, an upgrade path will be available
to individuals holding that credential so they can demonstrate their skills on
the newest version of the technology, without completing all exams associated
with the new credential. This policy does not apply to legacy credentials,
including Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST), Microsoft
Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and Microsoft Certified Applications
Developer (MCAD).

Upgrading Your MCSE Certification on Windows Server 2003

Upgrading Your MCSE Certification on Windows Server 2003
You have your MCSE on Windows Server 2003, and you want to upgrade to Windows Server 2008. The first thing to remember is that this is a series of new certifications and, while there is an upgrade path, you are not earning an MCSA or MCSE on Windows Server 2008. Rather, you will earn a MCTS or MCITP on Windows Server 2008. Also remember that the era of the MCSA/MCSE certifications has ended – it is now MCTS and MCITP (and others beyond the scope intended here), and they have an entirely different focus.

The Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) is concerned with and focused on a deep understanding and use of a specific Microsoft product. The MCITP, on the other hand, represents a broader view of a series of products or integrated products, and it is concerned with planning and developing of the network architecture and design. The important thing to remember is that the MCTS is not
a prerequisite for the MCITP,
per se. In other words, you earn the MCTS de facto by simply passing the required tests for MCITP. You will earn the MCTS on several products if your goal is to earn the MCITP Server Administrator or Enterprise



Administrator on Windows Server 2008.

There are two MCITP tracks available for Windows Server 2008, the MCITP: Server Administrator or the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator (doesn’t mean you can’t get both; they are two separate certifications with different requirements and target audiences). Regardless of which track you
wish to pursue, you will need to take the 70-649 TS: Upgrading your MCSE on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008,
Technology Specialist exam. Passing this exam will earn you the: MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuration (equivalent to the 70-640 exam), the MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration (equivalent to the 70-642 exam), and the MCTS: Window Server 2008
Application Infrastructure Configuration (equivalent to the 70-643 exam). One thing to keep in mind is that if you take and pass the 70-649 test, you also earn the same MCTS
certification
that you would have earned by just taking the 70-648 exam.

Now that you have the 70-649 exam, you can decide which of the MCITP tracks you
wish to pursue. If you want to earn the MCITP: Server Administrator, then you will need to pass the 70-646 Pro: Windows Server 2008, Server Administrator exam. If, on the other hand, you are interested in the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator, you still need to take the 70-649 TS: Upgrading your MCSE on Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, Technology Specialist, but in addition, you
will also need to take two other tests (for a total of 3 tests).

You can take either the 70-620: TS Microsoft Windows Vista,
Configuring OR70-624 TS: Deploying and Maintaining Windows Vista Client and 2007 Microsoft Office System Desktop (your choice here, but one of the two is required). The last test you need to take is the 70-647: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator. Once
you have taken all three – congratulations, you are now a MCITP: Enterprise Administrator. The value of certifications cannot be over-emphasized. A certification clearly demonstrates that an individual has met certain requirements and has a specific level of knowledge and skills. There have been significant changes to the Microsoft Certification programs in response to new technologies,
and pressure from companies and individuals. Introducing a differentiation of the ubiquitous MCP
Certification (take a test, any test, and you are an MCP) and the MCTS (product-specific) provides a qualitative approach to certification and applicability to job roles. The new MCITP certification relates more closely to the real job roles of IT professionals as it
can cover multiple disciplines. Understanding the upgrade path from Windows Server 2003 to 2008 can be daunting. There are several exams that can be used for different certifications and just understanding the difference
between the MCTS and the MCITP can be challenging, but very rewarding in the end.

Conclusion
There must be value and worth in earning a Microsoft certification if the program has lasted over 16 years and granted over 2 million certifications. Our old friend the MCSE is soon to phased
out. Those who hold this cherished certification should be proud of their achievements, and those who are on the path to earn the new
MCITP will continue the Microsoft Certification tradition established in 1992. While the new certifications have different names and professional focus, they will still command respect within the IT community. Their relevancy is assured by tying the MCTS to a particular product and demanding a deep knowledge of this product. The MCITP assures that anyone possessing this certification has a breadth of knowledge on various products and is concerned with the network architecture and design. These are exciting times in the Microsoft Certification world.

Microsoft .NET platform or Sun Microsystem

Microsoft .NET platform or Sun Microsystem

Microsoft defines .NET as a “software to connect information, people, systems
and devices.” To connect all the four before mentioned factors via software is
not exactly child’s play. Just imagine a task of connecting a Java application
running on a OSX Macintosh to VB application on Windows running on an IBM
machine. The .NET is the technology that claims to make it all possible “by
following and adopting a standard” with the standard being XML. But the question
arises how adopting a standard will make things easy to connect?

Let’s assume your teacher asks you to code a program that prints the square root
of a number. Just imagine a standard math class that could be accessed and
understood by mostly used programming language’s compiler. And if you have an
IDE that understands both, then it is not a problem to use the coding scheme of
one language and employing the library fileclass of another. That is what people
at Microsoft achieved by defining standard classes and introducing a single IDE
using the XML standard.

Features: Some of the features of this technology are mentioned below:

— Applications connect to each other using XML web services.

— All products Office, Windows and so forth—-will move towards reliance on XML.

— .NET Framework and Common Language Runtime (CLR) will serve as the common
foundation for all development work done on .NET.

XML is referred to as a language that is a child to the HTML but provides more
power and extensibility with less complexity. XML web services provide an easier
and standardized path to create methods that are understood and executed by
different vendors’ software on different platforms.

Common Language Runtime is purely Microsoft’s own idea and they claim that this
would give language-independent, object oriented, virtual machine to a
programmers helping them to use any language of their choice to create desired
.NET applications in the Windows environment.

Products: There is a long list of products, approximately more than 250, out of
which only games and certain other oddities don’t come under .NET’s umbrella.
All the major packages including Office, Visual Studio, Enterprise servers and
all of the Windows variants are members of .NET force. Obviously we are not
going to discuss what changes .NET framework has brought into all of the
products but two worth mentioning programs are:

Visual Studio .NET: Microsoft’s standard Integrated development environment
(IDE) is Visual Studio .NET. Previously, we had different IDE’s for different
languages but now Microsoft has come out with a standard IDE that would support
Visual Basic.NET, C#.NET and C++.NET.

Amazing isn’t it? But wait there is more. Not only can one test and debug code
of the before mentioned languages in a single IDE, but can also use the library
files of each other! This is because these libraries and components of all the
three languages are integrated into a common set which is called Common Language
Runtime. This enables programmers to exert more flexibility, extensibility and
reusability that is far beyond current standards. Also testing utilities from
Rational and Mercury are available in this single IDE hence opening up ways for
third party vendors to manufacture their products with .NET compatibility. For
the Java experts amongst us, J#.NET is also included which again integrates
strongly with Visual Studio.NET.

.NET Enterprise Servers: .Net technology has given a new look to Microsoft’s
line of advanced servers, which include, Win2000 Server, SQL server, Exchange
server, Commerce server, Project server, Operations Manager.

One interesting feature of .Net technology is its flexible support for
applications which have compatibility for other operating systems, such as
Solaris and Linux.

Associated products: Almost all big names in the software industry are ready to
port their products to the .NET standard. In fact, Microsoft states that more
than 20 languages are going to be integrated into .NET soon. After reading this
article if you planning to prepare for Microsoft .Net or any of Microsoft
Certification www.Certkingdom.com
provide the best of the certification study guides and exams preparation tool.
