BizTalk 2004 or BizTalk 2006 MCSD?

Discussion in 'MCSD' started by Sam Vanhoutte, Oct 17, 2005.

  1. Hello,

    I will start my MCSD exams very soon. My company ( is
    specialized in integration on the Microsoft.Net platform, and currently
    Microsoft BizTalk is the most important technology we are using.
    I just looked at the different possibilities in certifying, and I found
    out that the only BizTalk exam available is, the BizTalk 2000 exam.
    I've worked with 2000, since the early beta, but for now, all new
    projects are off course BizTalk 2004 and 2006, based.

    The only exam available for BTS2004 (the partner exam) does not seem to
    count for the MCSD degree. Are there any changes planned for this?
    Can we expect something in the very near future, because I don't want
    to invest in old technology.

    Best regards

    The new developer cert is not the same as the old MCSD, although there may
    be exams to upgrade. If you try to register an exam at VUE, you will notice
    that there is a new beta exam called 071-528, TS: Microsoft .NET Framework
    2.0 - Web-based Client Development. You can find information about the exam
    at the following link:

    Under the section Credit Toward Certification, you can find the name of one
    of the new certifications.

    Hello Sam,

    I think that certificating for BizTalk 2000 isn't useful to do. But MCSD
    has a lot of value for most people. You can get your MCSD and do the Partner
    Certification for BizTalk 2004, and you will have a very nice combination
    of certifications.
