Anyone who is interested in obtaining the skills and knowledge needed to plan, configure, manage, and provision various Office 365 Services and prepare for the 70-347: Enabling Office 365 Services certification exam


Expected Duration
132 minutes

When deploying Office 365, you need to determine the amount of control your organization needs over the deployment. Will you allow users to self-provision Office applications as needed, or do you require strict control of the deployments? In addition, how will the clients be configured, and how will you, as the administrator, verify the client configurations. In this course, you will discover how users can self-provision Office 365 ProPlus and how you can take control of deployments as an administrator using the Office Deployment Tool. You will discover how Outlook clients are configured and how Skype for Business Clients is configured. In addition, you will explore Click-to-run deployments vs MSI deployments. This course will prepare you for the user-driven and IT-driven deployment topics that are covered on the 70-347: Enabling Office 365 Services certification exam.
