ModernBiz Technical Series – Training (March to June 2016)

The ModernBiz Technical Series courses teach Microsoft partners how to deliver solutions built on Microsoft technologies for their small and midsize businesses (SMB) customers. Solutions from server to cloud, and from PCs to mobile devices. Courses are beginner/intermediate level and give hands-on experience with technologies.

What's especially cool about the ModernBiz Tech Series is that it stretches across Microsoft solutions including Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Windows 10 and devices, Microsoft Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), Power BI, and SQL Server—so you get well-rounded training to develop the right solutions for your SMB customers.

What’s different?

  • Solution-based learning spans across products
  • Learn via hands-on experience via demos, labs, and presentations
  • Focus on building real-world solutions
  • Continue to learn via access to hands on labs during and after the class

    why are there no events north of the Scottish border? it’s really sad to see you guys are not putting the effort in up here, last round table was cancelled last minute and not a sniff of a reschedule.
