a new MOCs

Microsoft is developing a two new official courses:

And although the first course is “In development” it was released in fact a few days ago, so you can ask your local education partners to provide 20703-1A.

As the name implies, first course covers topics about ConfigMgr Current Branch administration, but doesn’t site server installation and multi-sites architecture, and the second one covers hybrid mobile device management and cloud services integration.

Both courses help candidates prepare for a new exam 70-703: Administering System Center Configuration Manager and Cloud Services Integration that will be released later.
