Announced March 2021:

Exam MB-700 updated

Microsoft announced that Exam MB-700: Microsoft Dynamics 365: Finance and Operations Apps Solution Architect is updated – from March 17th!

Not much of a change, if you read the Skills measured; apart from a small group name change and things being moved around, I just noted significant changes in

  • 1.3 Define compliance requirements: Deemphasized in the new exam. No specific objective
  • 1.4 Define security requirements: Security topics expanded in the new study guide
  • 3.3. Define a testing strategy: Testing topics expanded in this study guide

The name change? Vanity, I guess: From “1.0 Identify solution requirements” to “1.0 Architect solution”.
