MS Gets Serious about Lifecycle Management

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Last week, Microsoft announced the introduction of a new MCSD credential that focuses on application lifecycle management, often abbreviated as ALM. Earning the new MCSD: Application Lifecycle Management certification requires passing three exams:

  • 70-496 Administering Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012
  • 70-497 Software Testing with Visual Studio 2012
  • 70-498Delivering Continuous Value with Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management

    Microsoft adds a lifecycle management option for the MCSD.

The supporting materials on the cert page also include an ALM virtual machine and hands-on labs for free download. In fact, there are 21 such hands-on labs, which combine to take a scripted approach to learning the content for the MCSD: ALM certification. It’s almost the same as a free, in-depth training class to help candidates get ready for the various exams. Very cool: check it out!
