Sharepoint 2010 business intelligence exam/certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there going to be a Sharepoint 2010 version of the Sharepoint 2007 BI exam?

    Maybe it will combine the PerformancePoint exam to make one large one?



    I've heard of the plans for Sharepoint 2010 admin and dev tracks, but nothing about the BI exam.


    If there will be an exam then will there be a training kit book?  It sure would be nice to have a book that covers the 2010 version of the curriculum from the above two exams.


    If there won't be a book then maybe someone could outline MSDN links for all the exam objectives as was provided for a different exam in the following link?



    I’m basically looking for all business intelligence features of Sharepoint Server 2010. 


    Thanks in advance.

  • As far as I am aware, there is no combined product exam yet for BI products including those on SP2010. Being honest, I wasnt even aware of a BI exam for MOSS.. It looks like that exam combines a lot of techs together.

    I am the author of that blog that you referenced and I might see about doing one for it, but considering I do very little in the BI sphere, I couldnt verify its accuracy.

    I will send a mail to relevant parties to see if I can get a definitive answer for you..

  • Hopefully you can get some help on this. 

    Found some more info on this on the partner site:

    Here is an excerpt:
    "In this exam, you’ll find questions about Microsoft SQL Analysis Services, Excel Services, and Office SharePoint Server, in addition to the monitoring and analyzing functionality that was part of Office PerformancePoint Server and is now part of SharePoint called PerformancePoint Services. Exam 78-702 replaces exam 70-556."

    So it appears exam 78-702 is already a combination of 70-556 and other Sharepoint Server 2007 BI functionality.  This is apparent from the description of 78-702 but per the excerpt above it does not overlap 70-556.  It replaces it. 

    So there should eventually be a Sharepoint 2010 version of 78-702 since it is part of the BI partner competency.  It would still be nice to know when it will drop.  It would also be nice if there were a book released or some generous individual like yourself to create an MSDN objective link list. 

    Thanks for your help so far.

  • Dear PoleB

    Maybe follow this blog as well regarding books - but there is already a great "poster overview" you can download regarding all the new Sharepoint 2010 BI stuff:


    Hope you can use it....

    If you feel that the info can be categorized as an"answer" you are most welcome to mark it as such, so others can use it as well :-)

    Many warm regards
