Audience Targeted

MCSE certification is ideal for professionals who currently work as system administrators or network engineers and are concerned with network security tasks. This certification will take them through a deep dive of understanding various concepts.

It is also important for any IT professional who typically uses software that is configured to use Windows Server environments. He/she will understand the logic behind the managed access and cloud services techniques.

Core Requirements

Once the candidate is ready for 70-744 exam, one should have understood the network security threats solutions. The exam needs the candidate to demonstrate the professional implementation of the CIA in a system.

It is also a basic requirement for the candidate to have the in-depth understanding of the different encryption techniques. This is one way of securing data by making it viewable to particular users who have the privileges to access.

How I Prepared for 70-744 Exam

I have worked in an IT company as a generalist of various IT tasks and I always hated this. I decided to get certified after I realized that I have a passion for studying Windows Server security and its general implementation. Despite the fact that I have been in the field, I had to start afresh as a novice learner in technology arena because I have not had a chance to see what specialist do in my place of work. I had to come up with a perfect approach that helped me to pass the exam without so much mental frustration as the certified do say. However, I am proud to share the techniques that I consider crucial to every candidate intending to do 70-744 exam or any IT exam elsewhere.
ü  Analyze the course outline- having known what you are needed to understand then it is easy to implement the concepts during your learning. Remember that the course outline is like a dictator to the examiners. They must play within the course outline or else the exam will be flagged invalid. The course outline is the only thing we share with the examiners.
ü  Set all tools- most of this certification exam involves a lot of practices that are accompanied by simulators/emulators. It is important that you set all these tools on standby before you begin your learning. It is important to always settle because you do not need to stop in search of some key requirements in the middle of your studies.
ü  Study in a noise-free environment- disturbances such as noise hinders your understanding. Let us take an example where you study in a TV room and your family members are having fun, you will have a big problem in figuring out the main concepts. The conducive environment to study is where it is quiet and calm.
ü  Conceptualize- whenever you learn any concept, try to figure out how the knowledge is implemented in the real world. Every IT concept is intended to solve a problem in the society. Your learning should be based on the current inventions you see and those which you imagine.
ü  Implement-the training always provides a sample implementation of every concept that you come across. It is your duty to put into practice every sample that is designed to enhance the understanding of a certain topic. In fact, the conclusion of the sample implementations is always tested as the exam is more of theory than practice.
ü  Believe in passing- if you go to an examenvironment without trusting yourself or being confident then you might fail at last. Lack of self-esteem is the key point that explains the failures that usually happen in the exam. Remember that some of the questions are only twisted to test your ability to tackle life's scenarios in IT arena.
Where to Learn
The provision of the learning materials is often facilitated by interested partners who also want to see technology being transformed by you. The best training materials are always considered to give the best performance. Successful IT specialists do recommend the candidates to train.
Digital Files
The revision that is done for an IT exam should remain digital in the sense that the method used should be technological rather than traditional methods. This involves the use of from VCE files that are opened by a programmed computer application called VCE exam simulator. It provides efficient revision which addresses challenges faced by individuals in IT field. A number of them are available on the internet. Communicate with candidates that have already passed this exam, they definitely know which sites are worth paying attention to while preparing for the exam.
Networking is a common term in every IT field because it ensures that there is efficient communication between links in the most secure manner. Receiving this certification is like having the backbone of technology in your hands. MSCE certification remains the best in networking.

Nokia is back !

After so many rumors and anticipation, the Nokia brand will finally be back to phones.

After Microsoft bought the Nokia Mobile Division in 2013, they quickly announced that no more Nokia smartphones would be released, and the new devices were rebranded to Microsoft Lumia. Nokia fans hated this, and Lumia sales started to go down, up to the point in which Microsoft's smartphone market share was non-existent last quarter. 

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that it had sold the Nokia brand for feature phones and some factories to the Foxconn group. Now they will produce new feature phones using the Nokia brand and market them as Nokia phones. At the same time Nokia Technologies signed a deal with HMD global Oy, a company which will now produce smartphones and tablets under the Nokia brand. HMD and Foxconn will also become partners to produce, distribute and market all the phones.

Seems a bit difficult to understand, right? This is a more simple explanation: Microsoft thought its brand was better than the Nokia brand for smartphones, so they killed it from Lumia but kept it for the low end feature phones. After some time their sales went down because people wanted Nokia, not Microsoft Lumia, so instead of admitting they were wrong, they decided to sell the feature phone division and Nokia brand. 

On the other side, when Microsoft bought Nokia Mobile they made a deal in which Nokia couldn't use the brand or make smartphones late 2016. That time has passed now and instead of making the phones themselves, they decided to license the brand and patents to another company. The phones will have the familiar Nokia design and logos, and Nokia will earn money for each phone sold without making it (something similar to what Motorola does with its Bluetooth accessories and Home products).
