Study guide 70-695

Well almost the last post, one more to go. And this might be interesting for many and is not that known yet. A couple of months ago Microsoft launched the beta of MSCE Enterprise Devices and Apps
This is a new certification title that aims on Configuration Manager specialists and with knowledge of MAP, USMT, MDT, Intune, RemoteApps, VDI,
Exam 695 Deploying Windows Devices and Enterprise Apps
Exam 696 Managing Enterprise Devices and Apps

This is the study guide for exam 695 which aims on using Configuration Manager, MDT, MAP, USMT, ACT and also alot around image building and so on. The one for 696 will come early in 2015.
