The next question is what are the benefits of the MCSA? This MCSA exam was created for a variety of reasons. One was to create an industry standard so that people would recognize the potential of the technology. Two was to set a benchmark that would allow companies and professionals within the technology industry to describe the different capabilities. And three was to identify the development, extensions and deployment for the MCSA. In this article I will describe the benefits of getting your MCSA certification online.
Getting your MCSA certification will allow you to describe your technological capability within the MCSA and the various capabilities it supports. With MCSA you will have access to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 modules that are available for training and learning. You will be able to see how the modules are applied and what they do for a typical enterprise deployment. You will also be able to describe the capabilities that are available via the MCSA at a glance. This will help you when talking with your peers, vendors, customers and others who are in charge of developing, deploying and evaluating Microsoft technologies.
Another benefit of getting your MCSA certification online is the ability to describe the development environment in terms of a visual tool. Now you can just drag and drop the boxes that describe the functions and capabilities that are available through the MCSA in the main menu. You will be able to describe each of the functions and then click on the plus sign next to the item to add it to the list of available items. When you want to remove an item from the list you just remove it from the plus sign and drag back into the list of available menu items. Now this may seem like a very simplified description of the development environment but in fact there are many little features that make implementing best practices easier.
For example, when you drag items from one menu to another or back into the list of available menu items the process becomes much more streamlined and easier to implement best practices. You will also be able to select a new item and describe its functionality in the MCSA. For example you might want to explain that only one instance of a particular function can be active at any given time or you might want to describe key properties of a resource that is only available during specific authorized use cases. You can select a new item and describe its functionality in the MCSA. Once you save your changes in the MCSA, you can then drag and drop the items into the appropriate boxes to apply them to the appropriate menus.
A great feature of the MCSA is the ability to drag items from a stored data source and drop them into another data source. In the example above we created a new data source that contains the names of all employees. The drag and drop functionality to allow us to create new users, drop in new menus and select new functionality. This example is just one of the many ways that you can use drag and drop functionality to quickly and accurately implement best practices for your business.
Another useful feature of the MCSA is the ability to define extended data types. In the previous example we created a new base enumeration named Employee. In the MCSA we can now select the Employee base enumeration and describe its uses. For example we can now create a new enumeration called Target Customer and set the data types used to describe the Target Customers we are trying to reach. In the example this would be an easy task because we already know what the target customer would be and all we are doing is applying this knowledge to the other data types on the model.
This was a brief overview of the features available on Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. These features allow you to quickly and accurately implement best practices for your business. In the next few articles I will discuss how to use these extended data types to identify key properties to which you can apply additional charges to help boost profitability. Stay tuned. Happy working!
