70-243 Exam Overview - System Center 2012

70-243 is part of the Private Cloud certification series. The full exam name is Administering and Deploying System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. The exam is available from April 2012.

System Center 2012 is a new enterprise management platform for organisations to manage all of their IT needs. So whether it's a data center, cloud server or mobile client, System Center 2012 is the focal point. Within System Center 2012, Configuration Manager is the tool that lets you maintain compliance and control whilst not interfering with employee productivity.

System Center 2012 is a huge release for Microsoft. It's likely to be a big success in businesses hoping for a unified management infrastructure, something which we all strive to meet but rarely achieve. An individual with the Private Cloud certification will be a desirable employee in 2012 and beyond.


As with other Private Cloud certification exams, candidates should be familiar with System Center 2012 in an enterprise environment. That includes understanding Windows Server, security and networking principles.

It is also desirable to know basic Microsoft SQL Server and PowerShell.
