Can anyone please confirm this new update? Is it true we have 90 days now?
FYI, several things in that article are not what was said. It makes me wonder if they truly have a copy of the meeting as they claim - or if they do, if they even listened it.
From the article:
Tim Sneath, who heads Microsoft's certification programs, expanded on past explanations for the certifications' withdrawal by explaining they consumed around half of Microsoft Learning Systems' budget but resulted in less than one in a thousand new certifications each year. As such, the certifications were not sustainable.
“When we look at products like Windows, Exchange and SharePoint, those are billion dollar businesses,” Sneath said. “We have less than 200 certified individuals for each product. 200 does not give us the volume to be successful deploying those products to the enterprise.”
These two quotes from the article are what I'm paying attention to.
