If you’re a fan of Get Licensing Ready then you’ll be excited to know that there are some new tracks and modules for you to work through. All the prior certifications (MLSS, MLSE etc) remain under a “Prior GLR tracks” tab, but now there are separate “Microsoft products” and “Microsoft programs” tabs where you’ll find the existing modules and some new ones too.
Check out the new “Licensing Specialist: cloud solutions” track which has brand new modules about licensing Windows and SQL Server in Azure, and how the Microsoft server products are licensed in the public cloud.
If you’re not already a GLR user, head to https://getlicensingready.com – it’s free to register, and you’ll find your day just got better from a licensing perspective 🙂
The Dynamics 365 track on Get Licensing Ready has been updated for all the recent changes up to and including February 2020, and the content has been split into two modules – Licensing the Dynamics 365 CRM applications, and Licensing the Dynamics ERP applications. Head over to GLR to learn about the licensing with video and reference material and to take a test to prove your knowledge: http://bit.ly/GLRD365.
SPLA comes to GLR! If you’re already a fan of Get Licensing Ready then you’ll know that it’s a great way of testing your existing licensing knowledge as well as learning topics you’re less familiar with. Now there are four new modules for the Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA), so if you need to get up to speed with how Microsoft licensing works under SPLA, then download the handouts, watch the videos, and get a tick in the box by passing the exams: http://getlicensingready.com.
Some exciting updates to the Get Licensing Ready site! First of all, there’s a new track for you to demonstrate your proficiency in the Enterprise Cloud Suite with three exams to take and pass. Then there’s an overhaul of the whole look and feel of the site so that it’s easier to see what tracks are available and whether your certifications are still valid. Head off to https://getlicensingready.com to check you’re all up-to-date with your licensing knowledge.
If you’re a fan of the Get Licensing Ready handouts – and who doesn’t love these one pagers on all aspects of Microsoft licensing?! – then you can get a preview of the new handouts for the Enterprise Cloud Suite.
The Virtualisation module has been removed from the Get Licensing Ready tracks. Are those GLR Elves mad?! No, there’s method in their madness – all of the virtualisation content is now incorporated into the various product modules where it should be – and thus there’s no need for this separate module any more.
The GLR Elves have been busy… Get Licensing Ready is a popular licensing exam site from Microsoft and it’s just been updated with amendments to exams in both the SMB and LORG tracks.
The “Online Services and SPLA” exam has been retired and there’s no longer a requirement to take SMB exams in the LORG track and vice versa.
Most notable though is the inclusion of an MPSA track which consists of three modules, the first of which has also been added to the MLSS LORG level. If you need a new certificate to hang on your office wall then head over to http://getlicensingready.com as quick as you can.
