New Microsoft Azure certification exams


Great news for the IT professionals looking for the accreditation of their Azure competences. This September 2014 were released two new exams. One geared toward developers and another one for infrastructure and operation.





These go further into Microsoft Azure skills than the existing 70-487 Developing Windows Azure and Web Services.


01/09/2014. Exam 70-532: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions



Measured skills:

Design and implement websites

Create and manage virtual machines

Design and implement cloud services

Design and implement a storage strategy

Manage application and network services


04/09/2014. Exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions



Measured skills:

Implement websites

Implement virtual machines

Implement cloud services

Implement storage

Implement an Azure Active Directory

Implement virtual networks


There are lots cross competences in between the two new exams with subtle differences. If you have been working on an Azure PAAS projects and managed your VMs and operated the solution then both are achievable.


If you are designing Azure cloud solutions then both are definitely recommended.


A useful link to have is the page with all Microsoft exams


Use the en-us page which is more up to date than the en-gb page. Same language, different content :-)
